50 Ways to Give the Finger: #9 – The Casual Drive-By Finger

The Casual Drive-By Finger This variant of the I Don’t Even Have Time For This Finger is best delivered with a wry smile. Here’s your opportunity to incorporate the power of the automobile into a dismissive Fuck You. The finger is held steady from the driver’s side window as you give the horn a couple of soft toots for emphasis.

What the Casual Drive-By Finger communicates to the recipient: I’ve got better places to go and don’t care to spend another moment in the vicinity of your sorry ass. Hope you have a nice day choking on my dust, fucker!

When to use it: Provided you are confident that the recipient is unable to catch you (either because he/she is stuck in traffic or traveling on foot) , and you’re in your car and have a clear path with steady terrain in front of you, the Casual Drive-By Finger is all yours to administer at will. Use it well.

      Oh, good point. I would say that caution must always be applied, regardless. I don’t come across gun-toting folks in Mass. I’d suggest careful application of the Mental Finger if physical safety is threatened in any way.

        I use the Mental Finger all the time. Massachusetts is one story. I suggest that regional wisdom be applied as to say not giving the finger in any form in Alabama, Georgia, Texas, etc..

    Do you include its reciprocity? another fav of mine being when I manage to stop the damned car that pretended not to see me crossing the street. The driver honks, I give him the finger. Same way as described in your post.

    If I give the finger while driving, the rampant surge of emotion causes my finger to jerk upwards towards the rear view mirror in a manner more crazed than casual. I realise now I need to cool it down and let my eyes do the talking. I have learned a lot wise one.
