According to hazelblackberry a gentleman should be able to open a door. While Prudence thoroughly approves of the type of fine motor skills such as those required to wrangle handles and locks and such, she suspects Ms Blackberry means the opening of doors in a chivalrous fashion. Prudence agrees.

deliver a credible compliment;
accept directions (of the map-reading variety) with grace;
insert a doona into a doona cover the right way and without resorting to colourful language.
