Do you like to gesture with your hands? Do you punctuate your points with an encouraging thumbs up or say see-ya by flashing a peace sign? While you might think that you’re just adding some emphasis or joining in on a trend, you very well might be telling somebody to f-off without even realizing it. Yikes.
Save yourself the embarrassment of accidentally offending your international comrades and take note of what these hand gestures might actually mean. (And don’t bother giving us two thumbs up… we get the point).
