Seattle, the nicest city on earth

Driving on the highway today, I noticed a very fast-moving truck that was forced to slow down for a slower-moving car that was trying to merge left. (I'm not sure if the slower car had already moved left one lane already, thereby "cutting off" the fast car, or not. Either way it wasn't an unreasonable move in fairly backed-up traffic.)

So the fast driver yelled something out his window at the slow driver, and gave the man a very sarcastic thumbs up. And the slower driver, who clearly felt he didn't deserve any reprimand for doing something perfectly normal, gestured back with a sarcastically cheerful wave of the hand.

In what other city in America would both those gestures not have been middle fingers?
