    I think it is a brotherhood thing. Two hvac guys pull into the same coffee shop. They will probably sit at the same table. Otto and I do.

    I get waved at and wave to other techs also. Been in the trade long enough that guys from other companies actually know me and sometimes we shoot the shi* at the local supply houses.
    Not as lean, not as mean, but I'm still a hardcore, ass-kicking, hard charging Marine! Oohrah!

    I let people in when they are trying to get into heavy traffic. It really frustrates me when I go out of my way to let them in and they don’t have the decency to give a little wave of appreciation. That’s not asking too much is it?

    I generally will let someone in if the lane is ending or there's a slow moving line. What I hate is seeing the lane that ends empty for 3 blocks, and some jagg off turns out into that lane, blows by everyone at 10 over the speed limit, then expects to get let in. That happened yesterday to me, he thought I'd let him in if he turned over in front of me. I did let him over since he was going to hit me if I didn't, but the gray PVC in the back of his truck got "scooted" over by my front fender. Was kinda funny seeing long sticks hanging out the side of his bed.

    I grew up in the country, folks were friendly everybody waved,EVERYBODY.
    People would come out to visit and say, 'that guy thinks he knows me , he waved at me.'
    When i moved into the city, things changed, people changed. Ive gotten in several fights because i waved at someone.
    I dont wave unless they wave first , unless you let me in traffic , now thats a peev.

    Funny how people who owe me money don't wave anymore.
    It's like they don't even see me (small town).

    The Manhattan Grid

    Tigger, if you think Denver is bad DO NOT EVER drive in Phoenix, now that is insane. It's all of the retired people from Cali and the bad drivers from the "Cold" country.
    Not trying to one up anyone, but I really don't think that it gets any worse than the Manhattan grid. It is a daily battle, mostly against the buses and taxis. We have bad drivers from other continents in droves...

    As for waves, lots of 1 finger waves, real waves when someone let's another cut in.
    Guys in the trade don't help each other as much as they could.
