Default A Friendly Gesture?

Since I found Gopher Forum, I feel like I’ve met a lot of new friends here-I don’t see you as enemies just because you have a lawn care business. Well, I also ride motorcycle and the other day I was thinking about the “wave”-if you ride, you know what I mean! Bikers wave to one another as they ride; a way to say hi, isn’t it a great day to ride, etc. Well, it got me to thinking maybe there should be a “lawn care guys wave”. I mean, I don’t see lawn care companies as my enemy; they seem like friends, just like all of you. I don’t view them as competition-in fact if they have a business then they’ve done something right. They’ve provided a great service, treated their customers right or something to be working at this business and actually being successful. So from now on, I’ll be doing the biker wave when I’m on my bike and the lawn care wave when I’m in my truck. How ‘bout you?

You know, this is one of those things that's got to start somewhere. Maybe by you starting it, it will spread! Nice idea.
