Stair Affair: Who goes first?

by epi on April 8, 2013

Q: If two business people are walking up a staircase together and one is a man and one is a woman, who should proceed up the stairs first?

A: Traditionally, a woman precedes a man, unless she needs the assistance of him going ahead and helping her. Generally, whoever gets there first, goes first.

Guess that the woman will proceed up the stairs first (if not needing assistance) and going downstairs it is the man that proceeds first.
