It also works for when the other person has the right of way and doesn't know how stop signs work. Going out of turn could be dangerous and open you up to fault if the other car decides to go. Waving them through is the safest way to approach it, even if they deserve a one-fingered wave for not knowing how the stop sign works.
I would guess Mensa members fall into two broad categories, those who have self esteem issues and need to tell people they are members as if they makes them somehow special or better and all the rest. Unfortunately the former are the most visible and give all members a bad name.
I'm trying to figure out which category to try to be in, but I can't find the second one.
The people making minimum wage are usually unskilled labor. Without skills to increase demand, they don't have many selling points to increase their wage. The logical thing to suggest is that they learn some skills. This is difficult for a few reasons. Learning new skills takes time and effort. Time is constrained, as supporting a family on minimum wage takes a lot of time at a low rate. Effort is constrained, as unskilled labor is generally less thinking and more doing. This often means that it's heavily physical and repetitive. So, if you're doing the same physical task over and over for 40+ hours a week, you're going to be tired. So, we have an exhausted person with not much time that needs to learn skills. It's not impossible to escape this cycle, but it is difficult.

So, you're saying the tips are good?
