    When driving, If another driver (a woman), gives you right of way, lets you into traffic or anything similar do you thumbs up them or hand wave? If its a guy I normally thumbs up them, I do to a woman as well, got me thinking, is a thumbs up more of a mans thing, should I be hand wave to woman drivers? for example an old lady, estimate her age at 80 gave me right of way and I gave her the thumbs up, I felt I shouldn't have done that?

    I usually throw up one of these if I'm feeling particulary gangster.

    Ah man, you're thinking way too much into this. :giggle:

    I usually flash from afar and then wave as I go past, be it female or male.

    I've been driving for 3 years now and I have never ever received or seen anyone doing a thumbs up...

    Funny enough, your avatar alone would make an appropriate response to this thread.

    And I doubt you're gonna hear any woman shout "sexist pig!" for giving her a thumbs up anytime soon.

    I got a thumbs up from a male van driver after he had given me the right of way and I flashed him to say thanks.
