Carole Meekins: Positively Milwaukee

Is it too much to ask for some manners behind the wheel?

  • Print

Is it me? Or have manners hit a road block when we are behind the wheel these days? How many times while driving do you let another driver go ahead of you?  It seems only natural to return the courtesy with a friendly wave of appreciation. Why do so many people fail or forget! Is it asking too much for what Jerry Seinfeld once termed the "thank you wave?"

No, it's not a major deal. But people who do not acknowledge a gesture of courtesy are either rude or self-absorbed. The dearth of the "thank you wave" is just  part of what's wrong the world these days. Less grace, and less civility. To those who fail to give the "thank you" wave all I can say is "no soup for You."
