    How come only old people wave? So if I randomly wave at a resident under the age of 70 in a neighborhood they give me a: "Who the :censored2: is this guy" look. It's almost like a game to see who will wave first. Hot chicks get an automatic wave for running in their tight jogger pants. On that note, thoughts?

    Scottyhawk What is it? A brown box. Duh

    If I make eye contact with someone I will usually give a head nod, if they wave I will wave back

    I wave or say hi to about anyone. My wife thinks it's weird. She works at the hospital and one day we were walking around there. No one makes eye contact or talks to each other unless they directly work together. I found it really odd.
    Old folks will actually stop and chat. Younger generation is socially awkward.

    I wave it waved at.
    But, I'll wave to any other package delivery person automatically.

    I wave to the Express guys and to one of the Ground guys. I laugh at the DHL guys.

    I have no problem waving to a fellow Express driver or a UPS driver, but I do my best to ignore the dirt bags at Ground.

    Those "dirt bags" are carrying your ass whether you care to admit it or not.

    Those UPS drivers should ignore the dirt bag express driver in their area.

    I wave the shocker to FE drivers.
  13. I wave to all of them. Sometimes we give each other,the one finger salute. But its all in good fun.

    I wave to everyone on my route and to other delivery guys. I wave and laugh at the express guys, cause when we are at a stop together they do nothing but complain how they are getting screwed that day

    If someone waves at you wave back. They may just be waving at someone else in your direction (in which case they will look at you funny) but you are just being friendly (and not creepy).

    I have an ENORMOUS pair of granny undies that I wave out the window to select folks. I just enjoy the reaction.

    I don't wave at the ground guy because he's so busy on the phone when he drives by I don't want him to let go of the wheel. He usually has a map or some paper in the hand on the wheel too...

    I give all the other drivers I see the devil horns. I have one contract guy for Canada Post sticking his arm out his window pumping his devil horns, head banging behind the wheel. It's hilarious.

    Yeah we get an extra 3-4 hours every week having answer customer complaints about Ground's misdeliveries.
