Nodding at the bus driver is a simple way of acknowledging his existence. And that’s a good thing to do, especially since you are putting your life in his hands. That simple act of recognition goes a long way. Your bus driver is not a machine. Your bus driver is a person and a person deserves to be treated with a little respect. You can even go a step further and say hello. You might even ask how they are doing. I was brought up thinking that saying thanks to the bus driver was normal. I don’t even think that’s being polite, it’s just automatic. Nodding at the bus driver should be a reflex. But that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore and that’s sad.
