Do you wave and say thank you to other drivers when you are in your car? Do you communicate and say thank you when they let you into a crowded lane, or when they urge you forward at a shared stop sign?
It was my 8 year old that noticed it. “Mommy, why are you waving at that guy you don’t know in the other car?” she would say. “Oh, he just let me into his lane, and I wanted to say thanks, honey.” She is a very observant 8 year old. “But you don’t know him, mommy.” I paused to think about her question, and said “I know, but if it were me letting me in, I would want someone to say thank you.”
