“I once ran into a female friend of my girlfriend on the street, she said hi and I did the nod, I later heard from my girlfriend that her friend had told her she saw me and said hi and I just looked straight at her and said nothing LMAO.

It was on this day that I learned there are people who do not understand the nod.”
