When A Stranger Learns Sign Language (American Sign Language Vlog)
October 17, 2019
[marker writing] [Pokemon game sound] Hey! What’s up? So, storytime. A few months ago, I went to Target. It’s one of my favourite stores. A lot of people love this store, right? I went grocery shopping since I was hungry and wanted food. I got my food in my basket and went to go pay. While I’m waiting, I see this 50-year-old looking man who I see often working at the cashier. This man knows I’m deaf. I don’t know how he knows because I’ve never told him. So a few…. I can’t sign that. A few months ago, the last few times I’ve gone there, when I’m finished paying for my stuff, he would sign “thank you” and it was cute. But this time after paying, I started walking away and he signed, “Thank you. See you later.” But he signed it wrong. He actually ended up signing, “Thank you. I’ll see you in half an hour.” [clarifying translation (like 30 minutes) + fingerspelling] I think that’s what it means. Yeah, it was the wrong sign, but that- I mean, I sign things incorrectly often, so. But that gave a nice feeling. Someone looked up how to sign “see you later!” I think that was the first time it had happened to me. It’s like, “Okay, I see this person a lot. She’s deaf. “Alright. I want to learn something if/when I see her again.” It was cute. I think that was a nice story to share with you all. If you have any cute stories like that, share them in the comments.

I upload every Monday and Thursday and I will see you later. Bye!
