Shrugging is when you raise one or both of your shoulders. It usually happens as a nonverbal response to a question that you don’t particularly care about. Sometime people don’t realize that they are shrugging inappropriately. Those people are squares. They are socially awkward and socially inept, but they either don’t realize it or they don’t care. They would probably shrug their shoulders if you ask them if they feel accepted by society. That’s the correct usage of shrugging your shoulders. Take note.
