    Stuck trying to pull out of a busy parking lot this morning, following a Commanders Call. Car after car not letting me out onto the street, then low and behold here comes a Tundra who generously lets me out finally. If you are out there, Thank you!!!

    Call it what you will, but I always let Toyota trucks go when that happens. :thumbsup:

    Then you speed through traffic to get in front of those who wouldn't let you in and do 10 under. If you're lucky, the other Tundra knows the deal so you can slow those assholes down.:devil:

    I typically see two Tundra's in the am, both 3rd gens driven by women. One morning I ended up side by side at a red light with one. She was doing her makeup in the mirror, no clue a Tundra was next to her . :pout::pray:

    I get the nod and steering wheel wave from Tundra and Tacoma drivers all the time. I've also noticed that Toyota trucks tend to congregate and multiply in parking lots..

    I'm a schmuck and typically let at least one person out of a crowded area, even if they're driving a Dodge. =|

    I always look for other Tundras to park next to. Even if I have to park across the street at the completely wrong store parking lot! Lol

    Ditto. You know you'll be in good hands and they'll make sure not to ding your door. Toyotas are like a comrade pack.

    If you wave just one finger, that will change. :) LOL

    I let drivers of all sorts of vehicles in, except pushy ones that act like it's their right.

    Guilty of doing this when parking. I've even gotten a note left on my truck by other Toyota drivers. Makes me giddy inside. :cookiemonster:

    I always wave at other Tundras. Some will wave back and others act like I'm trying to tell them something is hanging off their truck. May just be the time we live in...

    Kansas, obviously, has a lot of farmers. It is common courtesy to lift a finger off the wheel to acknowledge other motorists. Generally, you lift yours in reply. Preferably index. In the cities, its not nearly as common though.

    In the city people often lift the middle instead!

    I grew up in the city but both of my parents come from farming families so it rubbed off. You see it more often with people driving trucks than anything else.

    I love it. My grandparents had a farm, I spent a lot of time there as a kid. Their neighbors on the next property had Buffalo, great memories!

    Dad's side had cattle. I would go ride the tractor with grandpa to feed them in the morning. I miss the farm. I couldn't live there but it was fun to visit. Used to catch toads under the tall lights by the big shed. Good memories.

    I also have a wrangler. Jeep people always wave. I wave at other jeeps out of habit sometimes in my tundra. They look at me very confused.
