does anyone know the difference between the one shoulder shrug and the two shoulder shrug?

LOL

I think the one shoulder shrug means - I could possibly help you if you are nice to me

The full whammy double shrug means - I really couldn't give a **** and there is absolutely nothing I am going to do about it.

Although I could be wrong (SHRUG)

Cheers

yes I guess it depends on who delivers the shrug
A civil servant’s shrug may have more indepth meaning than a motorist offering a full whammy double shrug meaning ‘get out of my way’

I'm surprised. I thought things would be a little more efficient down in Lisbon than up here in Coimbra!

maybe things are more efficient … I don’t know…

these people that shrug often make me laugh .... I souldn't but some seem to be permanently in the act of shrugging… but it’s simply a way they express themselves. The southern European catholic types are more animated, whereas the brits are more er … cool, dour, dry ….
