Sorry ma'am... open the *$%#!@ door yourself!

Doormen to go on strike.

"We're going to take out the trash and man the elevators and help open the door," said Susan Zander as she walked into her tony Fifth Avenue building. "If it happens, it happens."

Yes, God forbid that some people should get off their lazy asses and do their own work. Now, I realize that these men and women will be out of a job if they go on strike, but the whole thing strikes me as perverse. Why does anyone, except for certain circumstances, need someone to open doors for them?

Post-Script: How hard is it to "man an elevator"? Is there something else besides pushing a button that I'm missing here?
