What are you..new to these parts?
If you want your packages and your guests to come and go without being tortured or be put through a lengthy inquiry, then listen up-
Folks who live in Doorman buildings quickly learn that the way to get anything done through the building is through the doorman. Unless perhaps you live in Society Hill Towers (a polite jab at one of the best run buildings in town) and they quickly learn to always be polite and friendly to all doormen at all times.
From fetching your car, to walking your dog- doormen can make your life easy and they often will go the extra mile for Philly condo owners they like. And being greeted each time you come home with a smile is a nice thing. Having a doorman who doesn’t like you is not a walk in the park. Believe me, I learned the hard way back in the late 1980’s by being rude and pushy. I no longer live in that building, and I now treat doormen with respect. You should too. Your life will be made much easier if you never piss off your doorman. They are great for learning of building gossip too…they seem to know everything. Oh, and tipping? Should be done if they go the extra mile. AND during the Holiday season.
