Default Re: MotorMood Classic: Show a 'Thank You' emoji to the car behind

I remember back in the 80s my dad brought a fun accessory from Dubai. It was a fun little soft toy in the shape of a man who would pull his pants down when you pumped the inflator. It was all manual and had a pump like the one used in old blood pressure monitoring instruments. All you had to do was to stick it to the rear windshield and pump when someone bothers you. I found a similar toy on Amazon US site https://www.amazon.com/Moonies-Toy-T.../dp/B001JTKF2O

More often than not, the motorist who you are going to cut in front of will flash his headlights to let you join in front of him and it is customary to turn on your hazard lights for a couple of seconds to say thank you!
So true!. I spent 13 years of my life in the UK and it was a rude shock when I moved back and started driving on desi roads again.
Flashing light has lost its meaning here. People on kerala roads think that flashing their light gives them the right to do any stupid thing on the roads.
Nowadays I just flash back at them.

Thanks for the post and it is quite a nice idea to have a smiley emoji to thank people. Although sometimes a smiley after overtaking can be mis-interpreted as a taunt and may lead to some rather unpleasant consequences.

Many a time I have wanted to have a display unit at the back of my car, where in I can display messages. But, these would be more on the lines of - 'wear your helmet you fool', ' if you want to learn slow driving, go to the playground', 'stop hogging the fast lane, you nut', ' stop using your mobile when driving', and sometimes even displaying certain rude hand gesture.
But then it ain't possible, so I just take a deep breath, cuss gently and drive on.
