Today I was waiting at checkout with my tomatos and fresh bread when I noticed about 20 ft. away an old woman with a walker that couldn't seem to coordinate opening the door, holding on to all her bags and advancing her walker all at the same time. As I'm moving through checkout about 10 different people just go walking through the adjacent door, some activily having to move over a door to avoid holding open the door for this woman. It took all of 5 seconds for me to leave the line and go help this person so it makes me wonder why and how someone actually at the door couldn't or wouldn't help this woman.

Does this happen often in Canada? I wonder and certainly hope not!
