(The grocery store where I work has a huge international section, so we get a lot of customers who don’t speak the best English. A gentleman approaches my till while I’m cleaning between customers. We pantomime for a moment to portray that I am, indeed, open.)
Me: (Joking) Yeah, it’s hard to tell. Our tills don’t have lights we can turn off to show we’re closed.
Customer: (Panicked, looking at the ceiling) You turning off lights?!
(Trying not to be rude by laughing, I explained through pantomime again that our TILLS don’t have lights on them. He thought I was telling him we were turning off the lights and closing, RIGHT NOW!)
