In the ether.
Where my head is.

If the person walking ahead of you opens a door for themselves, walks through, and then holds it open so you can walk through behind them, it's appropriate to say "thank you." Duh.
However, what if there is a small space - what's it called? a vestibule? - and then another set of doors? And what if that same person, still ahead of you, holds this door open for you as well? Keep in mind you just thanked them .2 seconds ago, does etiquette dictate that you thank them again?
I've always been flustered by that little maneuver, despite the fact that it happens quite often and one would think that by now I'd have it figured out.
