Why don't you cross spoons?

My sister at work had two spoons on the desk crossed and the guy walked by and said not to have them crossed. He wouldn't tell her the answer just to look it up on the internet. So I thought I'd ask you guys your thoughts/opions, thanks!

In India, most people do not use spoons. I wash the hands and eat with hands. Regarding spoons kept crossed must be an indication that the person is through with his food. Otherwise, for starters it is kept straight one beside the other. I am not very familiar with etiquettes of western.
