‘get the door for her so she doesn’t scrape in on the curb’? what does it mean?

get the door, I get that picture says it all but ‘so she doesn’t scrape in on the curb’? what does it mean? scrape is like to rip, to rob of something. and “on the curb”? I by no mean can’t translate this expression nor I can get the catch of the meme… help?

Answer

I could be wrong on this but it sounds like to hold the door if you are in front of a lady so she doesn’t scrape or squeeze through the door as it shuts behind you. Almost like someone made a saying out of the gentlemen code.

Or if you are referencing the picture that states “Get the door for her so she doesn’t scrape IT on the curb”, it could be literal in that you should open the car door for a lady else she might scrape it. This implies that she might not be as concerned as you for the safety of the car. And it’s humor comes from the fact you aren’t opening the door to be polite, but to protect your car.
