Re: people shaking their heads

I find it so unpleasant!
And I...

Just yesterday on my way home, I decided to take the garage entrance (on foot, no umbrella) to my apartment, it was raining sheets so using the normal entrance another 200 meters ahead meant I'd get drenched. So here I was beating the rain and suddenly there was a loud honk behind me. Apparently I was holding up traffic getting into the narrow parking area, all of one car mind you. So I jump to the side startled and make way. The driver then looks me in the eye and shakes his head in contempt. I almost yelled WHAT! I've had the 'shaking head' experience on various other occasions...don't even want to get into it.

Worry not, you are not alone. I guess we've all had our share of the Swiss brandishing their shaking heads. And it's not just limited to people in cars...
