Re: Stop freakin' waving at me!
where (wave, wave)

he really needed to lay out the context better. See, where he sails from, it's not unusual to pass or be passed by 40-50 vessels an hour on a busy weekend morning.
So, it can get a little crazy. Imagine if you MISSED waving to someone? then you look like a sob, or those folks wonder what is wrong with them, or rumours start, and next thing you know...
Another wave-heavy passion is motorcycling- every bike low fives every other bike for the most part 'round these parts whether american iron or metric, ... except on friday 13th. When you get 10-50 000 motorcycles in one place it gets too crazy to wave to everyone.
Me? I wave, or raise my mug.
You've got it exactly right. It's not like I'm passing a couple of boats an hour - it's a constant stream of humanity.
