How about, Don't be a boor, open the door?

Because there are so many more people riding the T, presumably because of gas prices, the MBTA today started putting posters in the trains as part of a "courtesy campaign" to teach people manners when out in public with their fellow commuters. Like a poster is going to cut through the level of self-absorption that one sees daily on the T. They actually spent hard cash on posters that say, for instance, Don't be a lout, let them out, and Don't be a drone on the phone?

But how about a few for the T operators, too? How about one that suggests that maybe they can keep the door open for a split second or so longer when they see someone running for the train late at night instead of shutting the doors right in their face?
