Are you sure it wasn't a joke? No matter how the comment was said I would assume it was a joke and just laughed.

This is a possibility, or an attempt at a light joke.  Similar to "I guess chivalry is not dead <chuckle, smile>"

I also saw this as a lame jokey comment.  I often say to male colleagues who wait for me to get out of a lift first or the like silly things like 'what a gentleman you are'.  If I had received the comment you had, I probably would have laughed and said thank you. But your comment was ok too.
