    Just venting

    A while ago I was on my way to our local sporting goods/coffee shop to shoot the breeze with the guys. On the way there I passed a Jeep headed the other way so I waved. Got to the shop, ordered a coffee and sat down to listen to the conversation already going on. In walks the guy from that Jeep I passed. He walked over to me to show me the correct way to wave to a fellow Jeerer! He held up 2 fingers.

    I told him that that looked like a peace sign not a wave, that I had been waving to other Jeepers since before his parents were born and never heard of what he was telling me. "I'll keep waving the way I have been and if the other person doesn't want to wave back that is up to them".

    He left with a chip on his shoulder. I suppose I could have been more diplomatic about, it but then, I never have been PC.

    Is there a "New" Jeep wave that I have missed learning about living here in the sticks? Will I be disowned if I do not comply?

    I'll tell you one thing, we had a pretty lively scuttlebutt session that morning.

    ^^^^That. Who was that guy, the wave police?
    A wave, is a wave. Looks like the guy you ran into takes that stuff way too seriously.

    Well... I like to overthink things as well

    Personally I thought there were no "rules" about a Jeep wave. No one has to wave first, and no particular style is needed. That being said... if you watched the gladiator release video here that Eddie did, the Jeep guy on stage held up the 2 fingers up with thumb extended and specifically referred to it as "the Jeep wave".

    I tend to drive with my left hand at the top center of the steering wheel... depending on a few factors (visibility, temperature, etc).. if my drivers window is closed people will get either 2 or 4 fingers up with thumb still hanging onto the wheel. I usually just stick to 2 fingers, but increase to the 4 fingers are if I think my 2 will not be visible. In the nicer weather when my windows are down (top on or off), my left arm goes out the window, upright but slightly angled outward. I either do the 2 finger/thumb or a whole hand open (flat palm), both with elbow resting on the window ledge. At no time am I doing a side-to-side waving motion. More like a stationary salute, fighting the wind usually haha.

    That'll be $25 for the non-official, maybe completely weird, Jeep Wave class. Paypal accepted. LoL

    Do people really care this much about how they wave to one another? This kind of dumb shit makes me want to not wave.
