Sign Me Up For A Laugh

| USA | Working | March 25, 2014

(My coworkers, Coworker #1 and #2, work together in the restaurant making the guest breakfast. Coworker #1 knows English but no Spanish, and Coworker #2 knows Spanish but very little English. They talk by signing with their hands. I’m watching their conversation.)

Coworker #1: *signing* “[Coworker #2], um… you no… washing… today? Today?”

Coworker #2: *signing* “Um… No. No.”

Coworker #1: *signing* “Um… what… you make… yesterday?”

Coworker #2: “Um… eggs. Ham.”

(They continue with me watching; and I’m very amused and amazed at how well they can ‘talk’ with signs. Another coworker approaches me.)

Coworker #3: “[My Name], don’t you know Spanish?”

Me: “A little bit…”

Coworker #3: “Well, why don’t you help translate between them?”

Me: “I would but… they are much funnier this way!”
