April 25, 2009 Power of the courtesy wave
You either have given or received one of these. It is effortless but incredibly important. I am not talking about Al Gore’s wave of recycling admonitions, I am talking about the most important wave of all, the courtesy wave.
I get/give a couple of these a week “CW” (Courtesy Wave) , but Holy Moses…I cant believe how vital it is to receive one! I wonder why that is???? Letting someone in front of you (on the road or opening a door) then not to receive the CW is asinine! They just assume I had to make way for their knighthood! I so want to drop the F-Bomb on them. (yes I know…recessed anger for the psychology majors) It sure can ruin the next 15 seconds of your drive if you are not acknowledged by your good will! Then its ackward to see them in the church parking lot! (Dont get me started about the clowns at our church) Anywho, giving and receiving a CW has to be the strangest rule of the road. You can get in front of someone, a drastic cut-off, then instantly shut of their “Hate” with a CW. Its pretty amazing if you think about it. Just letting the other driver know you recognized their good deed improves the great American highway.
