I can't really make out what he is saying. Is he angry that no one held the door open for him?
wait, read the youtube title, nevermind.
He's angry cause no one said thank you when he held the door open for them. It says so in the youtube title.
Hope that helps.
They thought they were there to flip burgers but the only thing that got flipped... was the script
Sometimes domesticated animals act in ways that betray their wild ancestry. No animal is completely domesticated.
I coulda guessed he was a christian.

Well seriously, if someone holds a door open for you you say 'thank you'. If they don't say thank you, the appropriate response is to say 'you're welcome' in a sarcastic tone.
I hold doors open for people out of simple human decency. I know this because one time I held the door open for someone. That someone turned out to be a woman, and then after she was out, she angrily told me, "I hope you didn't do that because I'm a woman." I gave a non-committal chuckle because my mind immediately thinks people are making a joke when they express random anger towards a stranger while it tries to sort-out what's going on. I spend the next few minutes of self-examination before finally deciding that 1) based on past experience, I hold doors open for everyone regardless of gender and 2) what a stupid bitch that woman was.
In any case, based on this experience, I consider myself to be very well antiquated with the details of my automatic door-holding etiquette, and I don't even care if people thank me or not. I hold doors open for people because I don't want to have to fight them to get in and I want to be someone that has the perspective to realize on a fundamental level that who fucking cares about the one second I'll lose letting someone else go in. Holding a door open for someone is a lot less stress than a bit of pointless conflict over going through a doorway.
I think we're all forgetting something here: this kind of disagreement is just what the doors want.
This guy is two anger management classes away from becoming a youth pastor.
I saw this happen in Boston a long time ago. A guy said "shit" quietly during a cell phone conversation and a woman in line near him exploded into a 5 minute long screaming fit because he swore near her 13/14 year old son, who she was dropping off at B.U.'s pro wrestling summer camp.
After about 5 minutes the guy gave her the finger and walked out, which was when she stopped screaming for the manager and started screaming for the police (neither of which ever materialized).
Her kid was completely humiliated and I'd have felt kind of sorry for him except that I worked at a record store next door and knew from experience that all those wrestling kids were hopeless, shoplifting juggalos.

I think the guy at 0:33 is wearing a Touhou shirt!
Two things. One, it's not that bad of a freakout; nobody got hit, nothing got broke. And two, people don't go off like this over holding doors. The fact that he's a Christian is a red herring, and it's sad that people would be invited to read their own narratives of tribal hatred into that one comment; this guy's obviously been under a lot of stress, and the door thing was merely the straw that broke the camel's back. Who knows what kind of stuff he's been going through? Maybe he got laid off from his job. Maybe his wife just died of cancer. Until we learn more, it's not fair to judge.
But five for the Touhou shirt.

While that's an entirely plausible reading, do you live in a big city, EvilHomer? Because this shit happens like 8 times in 8 seconds in LA, and the "I'm a Christian" non-sequiter is usually a product of a weird attachment between psuedo-mysticism and mental illness.
Put another way: When you see a crazy homeless person shrieking on the street, what are the odds he adds BY THE WAY I SUBSCRIBE TO THE DOCUMENTARY HYPOTHESIS THAT YAHWEH IS A PRODUCT OF MULTIPLE REGIONAL TRIBAL GODS THAT THE HEBREW CONFEDERATION MERGED TO CREATE UNITY WITHIN SEVERAL DISPARATE NATIONS FOR PURELY PRAGMATIC REASONS?
If I ever take up residence in a cardboard box, that's what I'm going to write on it.

When people pull this crap I think their main calculation is "who can I berate in public without suffering any ill consequences?"
I tend to think of people that start by saying something like "As a mother of 2..."
You know In N Out puts bible verses on the bottoms of their cups and bags?

This must be that Sudden Crusade Syndrome that Daniel Pipes talked about.

I looked up the incident and this guy clearly has mental issues.
He was just standing at the restaurant all day, not ordering anything and opening the door for people going in and out. He was also holding a Bible.
Finally, the manager asked him politely to leave and then this happened.
He sounds like one of those new wave of people who think Christians are an oppressed minority in America as well.
