I randomly pointed with two fingers today at work, and started cracking up afterwards once I realized. My coworkers didn't understand why. I couldn't explain it, because I kept cracking up. Don't get to give directions very often
I actually almost did the 2-finger point today. A lady asked me for directions on campus, so when I pointed the way for her, I almost did it. But I didn't, and started laughing afterwards. I MISS DISNEY (hopefully I'll be back in May).

What's with the two-finger point? I've never noticed CM's doing it. I guess I need to pay more attention next time.
If a CM doesn't do the two-fingured point...oooo buddy!! LOL JK. It is a Walt Disney Signature Point...you use two fingers to point as not to be rude or offensive AND Walt Disney was a smoker, so when he gave tours of Disneyland he pointed with the hand that held the cigarette (I know...)But, I guess Disney and I were a perfect fit...I have always done the things a CM does...even before i started "officially" working...i mean...playing there. But also remember...don't go crazy forcing the Disney ways...yes, while you are a CP it is required, but when you're there...if you really enjoy what you do...it shouldn't take any work. I have noticed that there are a lot of CM's that just don't fit and that is OK...it's not the place for everyone...they try to hard to be nice...very fake. It takes very special people to make magic and karamie you seem like someone that will be a great addition to our family. Best of luck to you.

this thread is about a year old
From a current CP to a future here's my advice. Be yourself. I myself just act like my normal self. I am helpful in real life so it isn't something hard for me to do.
I always do the two-finger point! lol Although it gets on my friends nerves...
Actually, the two finger point isn't used just by Disney. I think I've seen most airlines using it for years too. I thought I'd read somewhere that in some countries it is considered rude to point, so the two-fingered version gets around that. However, when I tried to find a country where that was true, I came up empty. I did find out that the OK sign is rude in many countries, so travelers beware.
mini-V What will you celebrate?
Adult daycare for the kid inside you.
several companies have adopted the two-fingered point over the years. it took me a long time to stop doing it, but i remember those days. Disney NOT referring to people as employees was also adopted by other companies over the years. that's why you see so many referring to associates or other things, since the word employee has a kind of lower status feel to it.
Yeah, you kinda get stuck with the two finger point. After 6 years of doing my program, I can't help it. My fingers seem to be stuck together, LOL ! ! !
