Where's the manners, Huntsville?

Living and working in Alabama, you expect good manners and polite behavior. Southern hospitality and all that.

Except on the roads of Huntsville.

Question for Huntsvillians: Why no thank-you waves in traffic? I slow down, let you merger easily, you just drive on like I HAD to do it. I didn't. So, give me the wave, huh?

Here in this less-congested, more laid-back small city, it's bad enough we all drive like we're at Talledega but the lack of common courtesy is disconcerting. Think of my blood pressure, will ya'?

Personally, I blame it on the Yankees that move here. They're a rude people. So let's do what we can to educate them, shall we?

Give us a wave!
