Q: My office is currently having a debate about this. When a man and a woman enter a revolving door, who enters first? Is there a reason for this?
A: Men traditionally enter a revolving door first, if it isn’t moving, but women enter first if it is already in motion. This old bit of etiquette was based on the notion that women needed help to push the door. Today the person in front enters first and pushes. The best idea is to signal your intentions: “After you,” or ” Let me get the door started for you.”
