"Be sure to wave!" Top 5 Page for this destination North Carolina Local Custom Tip by Astrobuck

North Carolina Local Customs: 39 reviews and 32 photos

I'm not sure how the rest of the United States goes, but being from North Carolina, when you are trying to pull out of a gas station, store, or whatever onto the road with your car, and someone lets you out because of a traffic jam, you wave to them. This means "Thank you." Living in Texas and Colorado, I don't see it, which is sad. I am always courteous, and when someone lets me out, I wave to them. So be courteous and wave when someone lets you out in front of them. They would surely appreciate it.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
