The Middle Finger, Why The Flippin?

I have never understood the reasoning behind flipping someone the middle finger. Not to sound prudish or judgmental but aren’t there other ways of showing displeasure at someone that have more meaning. Perhaps that is the point is to be offensive and crass. Perhaps I have lived a sheltered existence but I think if we all tried harder to get along and be more sensitive to one another that displays of digital displeasure wouldn’t be necessary. Perhaps we need to just chill out and work to be a better neighbor. I don’t know, maybe it’s just me.

  1. I got flipped off yesterday! And not to toot my own horn, but I am a pretty nice and fun-loving guy!! I just laughed. I had a friend once flip a guy off on the way to a job interview and when he sat down realized the interviewer was the recipient of said finger. The interviewer also realized! needless to say my friend did not get the job! lol

  2. Oh do you know what frosts them even worse? I HAVE done this.

    Guy cuts you off almost causing an accident and at the stop light you look over and say bless you while making the sign of the cross. The guy sat there not knowing what to do. Then when the light turned he started cussing and banging his wheel. I smiled and drove away..

    Try it. It works!
