It is okay when you wave at someone. I have asked my husband several times about this issue, but I still don’t completely understand the borderline between the “safety zone” and the “considered-to-be-offensive zone” :(

To me, it was THE example of cultural differences where one normal gesture in one culture has a very different meaning in another.
