You Had Better Wave

There are rules in a civilized society that must be followed if we expect that society to stay civilized. Latigo Flint doesn't mind letting you cut over in front of him, say, if you suddenly realize you need to make a left at the next light etc. But good god almighty, you'd dern well better give Latigo Flint the "thank you wave".

If you're trying to merge into congested traffic and Latigo Flint slows up a bit to allow you to do so in front of him, one of your highest priorities at that moment should be making eye contact with Latigo Flint and giving him the "thank you wave". If you don't, Latigo Flint has a tendency to wish horrible horrible things upon you.

You have no idea how damaging it is, karmically speaking, to have a stranger suddenly picture you dying a horrific death in your burning car, pinned to the seat by a length of rebar that is piercing your abdomen.

Just remember to wave and I think we'll all be fine.

Heh! You don't know how many times I have vowed to assist offenders with the performance of Seppuku following such "no-wave" incidents. They have dishonored drivers everywhere by not acknowledging my kindness.

Amen brother!

(That was a damn shame what they did to your pigeons.)
