High Noon: Flipping Off Someone

My blog sidekick Cindy reported on her Facebook wall that she's never flipped anyone off. Rather, she said, "I usually just shake my head sadly. Sometimes, I throw my hands up in the air but that makes it difficult to steer." To which one friend responded, "Today?" And another: "What??? Is your middle finger missing on both hands???" And another: "It's like we don't know you any more." Which prompted Cindy to respond: "This thought occurred to me as an ignorant rube ingnored the 'lane ends' sign and try to race ahead of a half dozen cars. I chose not to let him merge. He chose to flip me off. And that's when I realize I've never flipped the bird. I practiced it at home in the mirror. I dunno if it's my manicure or what but It just looks silly when I do it."

Question: Have you ever flipped someone off? When was the last time you were flipped off?
