Gee, I thought because we are such good consumers in the States and our
chubby arms where so full of goodies that we could only get out of the
store by pushing the door outward. :-)

Dick said <<<Dan is correct. The uniform practice is codified in state law
in many, if not all, states, directly as a result of the Cocoanut Grove
fire, 28 November 1942, in Boston, in which 492 people died primarily for
the exact reason Dan supposes.>>>

Because Dan said <<<I've always assumed that the U.S. "standard" of pulling
the door of a
business to go in and pushing to get out had more to do with egress in an
emergency than anthing else. After all, if you stopped to pull a door
you in the crush of frantic people .... squash!>>>
