A staple Old Folk agressive move. Shaking the fist lets people know they are disgruntled but haven't the means to kick your ass. Directly related to the wave off, the fist shake is a time honored right for senior citizens, and adored by the young.
When I burned out in front of Old Man Stephens house, he gave me such a fist shaking that I thought he was gonna bust a jugular.
The motion made when an individual draws back their arm and waves it towards someone with a flick of the wrist and typically an "ahhhh". A direct relative to the fist shake. This is performed when the individual has had enough of conversation. Can be performed by all age groups, however a senior discount card is a bonafied license to wave off
When I told him the coffee price had jumped a quarter, Old Man Stephens gave me the wave off and walked out.
