What does it mean if employee ignores co-worker saying GOOD MORNING, but she holds door, & says THANK U when he delivers package to her desk?

Keep in mind she has a college-level position, while his is high school/GED level.  Also, his greeting to her was a casual “good morning.” as opposed to an in-your-face conversation starter, as he was just following etiquette protocol from his mother who raised him to be a gentleman and kind toward others, say “good morning,” etc.  The ignoring occurs no matter if it’s morning, afternoon, or evening.  Therefore, it’s not that she doesn’t want to be bothered in the morning, but rather ignores him in general.

Ironically, she holds the door for him whenever he’s behind her, and always says “thank you” when he delivers a package  to her desk.

    It means she doesn't want to speak to another coworker. You are reading too much into it and really need to find a new topic to post about.

    It means he's spending WAY too much time worrying about her behavior. He's clearly under no obligation to keep extending niceties to her if she doesn't return them, and that's okay. Not everyone is chatty and now he knows she's not going to respond as he wishes. For him to keep trying when she's clearly not interested would be him choosing to keep himself upset about something of relative insignificance.

    It means you're a whiny snowflake who think everyone MUST reciprocate your greetings. Maybe some people don't feel like until after their 5th cup o' joe. Maybe she sees through your BS and thinks you're hitting on her. Get over yourself.

    That she didn't hear you.

    Or she heard you, didn't understand what you said and only realized after a few seconds and felt it would've been too awkward to reply after a long pause.

    You are extended the common office protocols, but nothing personal. She does not want to do anything to encourage you. She wants you to leave her alone, personally. And, she recognizes you as being a snoop into her life and over influenced by your mother.

    Maybe there is something in her life where saying "good morning" is wrong; so responds in another way?  

    Maybe she wants to get what she says in larger seeming, than another? To seem bigger to her? 

    How about  praying to GOD about this?
