Letting the other person go first

    I am not talking about the general idea of letting someone go first, just something a bit more specific.

    I'm a bus driver and today at a bus stop I noticed a man who was next to the door of the bus, gesture for a lady - who was about 4 yards behind him - to go into the bus first. She had to go in and thank him for this while the bus waited. Apart from the fact it delays the bus I think it's just plain rude.

    Obviously every situation is different, and most of the time I see someone letting another person go in first, it is understandable as to why they'd do it. But when the other person is clearly miles behind, it's makes no sense. I often get the impression that they've been listening to some self-help podcast which mentions how you should do a good deed everyday.
