On my way to work this morning, I cut off a car that was in my blind spot on the freeway. The guy honked and flipped me off. I gave him a wave to try and say I was sorry. He thought I was waving him off, and up came his middle finger again. I then banged my palm into my forhead, to show him I was the idiot and was sorry. I think he took it that, I thought HE was nuts, and flipped me off again. I thought I would give it one more shot and tried to mouth the words " I'm SORRY", He was not much of a lip reader and mouthed back something like " FUCK YOU".
If he knew I was trying to apologize, he would probably not have been as upset. I think that most of here, would give a guy a break, if they acknowledge their mistake and apologize.
We all know the signs to show someone, we are pissed off. What is the universal and unmistakable sign that says I'M SORRY?
