The Insiders Guide to a Country Wave
One-finger city waves typically reflect someone's frustration, but in the country it simply means, "Good to see you." Waves also reflect acknowledgement, warmth, and personality. For example, confident drivers use the pointer finger version, pickup and truck drivers seem to prefer the pointer and middle finger union wave, while some drivers are so relaxed they keep their plam on the wheel, and raise all four or eight digits in unison. Urban drivers have said one of their favorite things about driving in the wide open spaces is greeting other drivers with a good, old fashioned, country wave.
