My drive from Tupelo...how random!

I was driving back from Tupelo to Memphis today and was really enjoying the drive. I wasn't in a hurry to get home, so I was trying to enjoy some "me time" in the car.

At one point in my drive, I was behind a motorcycle. As we drove along, another motorcycle was coming from the other way and about to pass us. The guy in front of me held his left hand out to wave and the other guy did the same. I thought what a nice exchange of a greeting. If you don't "ride" as the motorcycle guys call it, then you may not know that this is what everyone does when passing another motorcycle. After I saw this short interaction between the two, i started wondering "Who made this rule up that when you are riding your motorcycle and meet another motorcycle, you should wave?" I mean, aren't these people supposed to be mean?

As all of these thoughts are going through my head, the guy in front of me decides to turn his head and spit while going 70-80 down the road. Needless to say, that wasn't a very smart thing to do. His spit apparently got all over his leather jacket because he kept looking down and wiping his jacket with his hand. At this point I decided that I didn't want to think about this driver any more and so I passed him.

I know that this was pretty random, but thought I would share anyway.
