It also means “I’m gonna whoop your arse boy, just wait”.
I also learned Italians and Libyans have the same use for it
hahaha actually for me it has the same meaning as for TheRealFadi. the minute my dad was doing this, i knew i was good for a not so pleasing moment… even now, this gesture just freaks me out!
hehehe good one didie! this brings back so much memories!
Just seeing the pic made me feel threatened. Dani’s here to woop some ass! lol
Hahah..it’s not my hand! But now that I know what it means, I’ll be using it a lottt more!
i am always scared when my boss do it 😛
for me it’s: “wait wait, let me explain..”
You’re a smoker?!
No no! That is not my hand in the picture, it is my co-worker’s hand!
Thanks for all of the comments guys!
That same gesture but with the finger pointing downwards, and head tilted to the side, can also mean “I’m retarded”..
So here’s a tip, if somebody came at you with the gesture and intentions that TheRealfadi brought up, just do my version of it, and that person just might feel sorry and leave you alone 🙂 …….. or kick you’re a*s even harder
in France, this means “fear” whoever feels this is afraid. interesting! thanks!
Bet chouf, bet chouf….
