A Facebook friend wrote that a companion had used a hand gesture which she had not seen used in years. The gesture: hold up your left forefinger; take your right forefinger and slide against the left forefinger.

She said that her companion meant it to show surreptitiously placing a tip.

When I was a kid, sliding your right forefinger on the top of your left forefinger meant SHAME-SHAME!

I wonder if kids still do that today.

Different cultures have different hand signals; many American hand gestures are offensive in other cultures (see the demonstrations from You Tube).
