Have you ever flipped someone off in an act of anger or defiance? I have many times but not recently. I've also been on the receiving end a few times, to which I gladly returned the gesture.
Hmmm yeah, now that I think about it, you probably wouldn't get the same feeling of satisfaction.I prefer the verbal "**** you!!" over the sign language.
I'm not sure if I've ever flipped anyone off.
It's kinda like that Seinfeld episode, you know, if you're mad at someone on the phone and want to hang up on them, you slam it down to send a message... But if you use a portable phone, all you can do is give them the quiet click. That's what the flip-off is to me: The quiet click. Not good enough
