This usually happens to me the first couple mows. Old people tend to know how valuable their dollar is because they are probably retired, they don't want to waste money. It feels awkward for me, but i just act like i know what I'm doing, and own it. I try to look confident, and i feel like waving just makes it more awkward, at least for me. Never have waved in a window, i feel like that is looking in on their home, which some people the first time you are there to cut, might feel violated if they are that way. That you are looking on on them and their personal belongings, even though you aren't.
