Hats Up!

What type of a driver are you? Are you the kind who, if given way, would pass with your hands high up, to show how thankful you are for their kind gesture, or is the type who'd keep a straight face, and move on like nothing had happened?

I was in the car with sis, after a short pasar malam trip, where we were putting up our hands after another, coz of the traffic, when she related to an incident that happened with my mom's friend. Something like this...

Friend: Yan...you kenal ke orang tuh? Siapa tuh? Kawan Olyn ke?
Mom: Siapa?
Friend: Yang tadi you angkat tangan tuh...
Mom:Erm...tak...dia kasi jalan tadi...
Friend: Ooo...ingatkan kenal td...

Hehe...weird...no wonder lesser people are saying thank you's nowadays for simple courtesy...For your info...yes...it's good manners to say thank you...no..you don't even have to shout it out, hoping the other kind driver to hear...a simple nod (and a smile if you have any) and a hand gesture (not the finger dudes) would do...You'd make someone's day, and you'll feel good...Trust me...What goes around comes around...Have a nice day!
