Re: Most of you know how I feel about waving, right?

I am a waver... but I also have a special 'wave' for the passing stinkpotters who make a big wake - it resembles the good old Roman salute with the middle finger variation.

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

I've never seen or heard of you, let alone knowing how you feel about waving

Re: Most of you know how I feel about waving, right?

Eh, yea, I'm not a big waver and rarely look a person in the eye if walking past them. However on my boat if I am sitting there slowly passing a boat while we are both looking at each other I will wave when I feel it. If someone else waves I at least nod or even wave. definitely not all the time and dont feel obligated

I have to admit to being a 'waver' - previous threads notwithstanding.

It really does run counter to my established persona as a crusty old bastard.

Re: Most of you know how I feel about waving, right?

I'm a frequent waver,- nothing vigorous, just one hand raised. I'm never offended by a lack of response from the "wavee". There should be no pressure to initiate or respond and certainly no offense. It's such a casual acknowledgement and the waver often is not one to notice wether the wavee responds or not!

Re: Most of you know how I feel about waving, right?

if you can see the whites of their eyes, give em a wave. if waved at, return the gesture. it's just polite. some where deep down it makes you feel good.

when i first moved to vermont. it kind of freaked me out a little. everybody waves, walking, cars passing by, etc. now i'm used to it, and find it more weird if someone doesn't return the wave.

riding motorcycles, almost everyone gives a nod/wave. mine is a low handed peace sign. i'm not a hippie, just wanted something different :-)

not sure why i'm even responding to this thread... (read wave back)...

We've spent plenty of time on the Ches, including 4th of July. Not nearly as bad as New England, especially the foul language on the radio!

Reminds me of when I was in
college and my then girlfriend, now ex-wife from NYC was visiting me in Chicago turned to me and asked if she had something on he face. She was surprised by strangers meeting her eye to eye. She has lightened up a bit.
