    We wave around here. Sorta the hand half way up deal... Maybe they think you're trying to intimidate. Are you nodding up or down?

    I'm friends or maybe I should say friendly with all the guys that have been around for years.

    Whats funny is, some of the newer ones won't even wave.

    always nod or do the thing where you unwrap a finger or two from the top of 12 o'clock position on the steering wheel as a quick wave

    i stopped noding because nobody seemed to do it back. Good to see most people doing it, kill them with kindness

    No one around here will wave, ive tried they all look the other way, even the big guys with 3 ztrs and 5 people all the way down to the guy pulling a craftsman on a 5x10 trailer no friendliness
