I have had to relearn the Jeep wave since purchasing my new Jeep Wrangler. For those who don’t know, the Jeep wave is where you wave to fellow drivers of Jeep Wranglers. Many times I would be driving down the road, ignoring those who were waving at me. I felt so bad when I remembered why all those strangers who were waving. Unfortunately though, not all people are fans of the Jeep wave…
Inside jokes, hand signals, secret languages — if I’m not in, I’m not down.
And what do I do when I’m excluded? I do what every other mature adult on the planet does.
So, allow me to begin with a hand signal on the road that I have always been excluded from: The Jeep Wave.
The first time I experienced The Jeep Wave, I was in my old Oldsmobile waving happily to what I thought was a new friend on the road.
