Miserable Kents...

Post by Peyote » Fri Mar 03, 2017 1:46 pm

It would appear that the waving at other Cactus owners/drives hasn't caught on down here in the South East. I've been doing it for over a year now and not had a SINGLE response. I'm starting to think I might have upset everybody. :cry:

Obviously we haven't passed. Mind you in the two years I've had mine I've only seen about half a dozen.

Same here - Ive nearly given up although I have to admit that my wife as a passenger shouts out "CACTUS!!" as one goes the other way past us and always too late for me to either see it or to wave, so I might appear to be one of those miserable sods.

You'll know its me though as if you look in your mirror Im the one swerving to stay in lane after being startled to death by some demented woman passenger.

I've lost count the number of times I've waved at a fellow Cactus driver and felt like a bit of an idiot as you get the "blank stare"
I just give a little wave now, keeping my hand on the steering wheel and lift my fingers in a "mini wave" style.
I let my son do the manic waving now....... !!
