The idea hit me last night as I was driving topless and doorless enjoying the summer ride. Was waving at other fellow jeepers with enthusiastic return waves and then came upon one at a stop light that actually looked away as I was turning so she didn't have to wave. The sticker was descriptive.
You don't need to wave, but she actually looked away. Really irritated me.
I guess I need to play devil's advocate for a second and say, there are reasons one doesn't return a wave. :hide:
1) There can be several things fighting for the driver's attention at that moment. Even though their brain notes there are vehicles in other lane, their brain might not immediately highlight that one of the vehicles is a Wrangler.
2) The other Wrangler is a manual, and the driver doesn't have a free hand to wave, while he is shifting, turning, changing music, adjusting temp, etc.
I am curious what the political views of those who wave vs don't wave are as well as the political views of those who get their feelings hurt or get upset if they wave and don't get a return wave vs those who wave and do not care whether they get a return wave or not?
me conservative and rarely wave. If I do I don't feel slighted in the least if no return wave.
