At work the other day one of my coworkers out of good fun gave me the number one salute to give to someone else because I was on my way to that section. I started laughing as he extended his thumb & I’m a thumb in guy. Anyway long story short that started a building wide flip off contest & I had a tally thumb in thumb out sheet in my area. Later that night the top dog, the big cheese (boss) came down to my area & I told me everyone has to stop flipping each other off. He laughed & told me to put him down for thumbs in & walked away. As for meaning anything else with thumb out I’m still researching it.
Well done on keeping the bird to yourself. Rude it is to some & for all the others that bird each other out of good fun well done as well. As for the origins I found a few different ones.

Thank you for your feedback & to answer your question this was my first time posting, I clicked other & don’t know to switch it to another post area.
don't worry, it was just an observation
Would that be thumb in or thumb out?
Same here & I found it harder to fully extend my middle finger with the thumb out. I’ll have to practice more.
Yeah it’s hard to do 😊
Thumbs up for thumbs in!
