(A point that WJC seems never to have grasped.) “Derb—A variation of the
phone-booth effect — the ‘my bad wave’ — happened to me this morning.
While driving to work on the hectic LA freeway, I was nearly run off the
road by an oblivious driver changing lanes. Every expletive I could muster
was about to be unleashed on the *$#@% when he gave me a very polite,
apologetic wave — ‘my bad’. My cold heart was instantly thawed. I have an
infinite capacity for forgiveness, just tell me you’re sorry.”
According to what I have been taught, Sir, the Big Guy feels the same way.
