    Door-holding etiquette

    This afternoon, I thanked someone for holding a door open for me. As I passed by, I said "thanks." He replied, "hey guy!"

    Is that an acceptable response? I remember back in college, after holding the door open for someone, my inexplicable reply to their "thank you" was "voice!" I make no excuses for this nonsense; it's simply what came out of my mouth.

    Therefore, I'm no expert on the etiquette of holding doors. However I feel strongly that "hey guy!" is not an acceptable response.
