We’ve long experienced this situation, and when I say “we,” you know I mean the ones that matter. Not the CATs. Not the championes le Sabato. Not the middle management. You. The Superissimo. We wave. If you don’t wave, go to a different place now. This squadra Internationale and friend of Superissimo said it best in their summer ride etiquette manual. My own personal esperienza and the recent osservazioni di JVA have fanned the fiammes of an olde pratique.
welcome the opportunity to raise a hand high, well in advance, and hold it
there. When the range of earshot is reached, I execute a 3 count and then state with forte, “I AM SORRY.”
