This summarizes what I observe when I watch people open doors. This is science I tell you.

In general, people here get stressed when doors are opened for them. There are a couple of times when I feel I do not get a thanks not because people aren’t appreciative, they just don’t know what to do or say but to quickly walk through the door (because they need to) and pretend it all did not happen.
Singaporeans are amazing.
