Hi all! Original poster here. I understand most of you don't think it's possible to accidentally stick your finger up instead of crossing them, but it's kind of an in group joke with all of my work friends that we flip the bird to each other. I guess habit took over! I am so ashamed, but at least she didn't realise what it meant and her mother wasn't around!

I'm still trying to figure out how crossing your fingers looks anything like flicking someone off. Sure you weren't subconsciously resentful? Working in retail can do that to people.

Once while visiting some cousins in Georgia, they taught my little sister who was young at the time how to flip the bird saying "this is how you say hi in Georgia" XD they told her to flip off passing cars so that they would say "hi" back.

Hell, sue her lawyer for taking the case, the judge for presiding over it, and the stenographer for typing too damn loudly. You know what, screw it, go american and just sue everybody.

He/she tried to cross her fingers but the index finger lost grip of the rude finger. That's probably why the rude finger was left exposed like that XD. Or OP is mentally affected by retail like you said.

I'm trying to cross my fingers trying to achieve what OP did, not managed to though. And even though OP didn't do it properly, flipping someone the bird is quite a lot different than crossing your fingers.

Spastic Finger Syndrome. When you go to slide your index finger under the middle one, it folds down instead, leaving only the middle finger extended. It's so gratifying to have an opportunity to share my encyclopedic knowledge with the little people. No, thank YOU!
