Memorial for mom

I used Google pages to put up a memorial site for my mom. I miss hearing her voice, but am glad she's in her savior's arms.

I don't get it

Last thanksgiving weekend I was out with my wife picking up my in-laws pizza dinner. While waiting for the pizza to come out of the oven I was opening the door for people going in and out – I have had people do the same for me many times when picking up pizza for my family. Most people were thankful, but one young man insulted me (somewhat unintelligibly) as he left (stormed out). My motivation wasn't gratitude so I wasn't angry or hurt -- just puzzled. A gift must be received in order to be given -- what made this man so distrustful to not accept my help? Was it pride? I am definitely out of touch with certain segments of our society.
