Gang Signs

Scene: Approximately ten years ago, sitting in Nelson's truck in the parking lot of a local liquor store, where Nelson and Jenni have come to buy alcohol for the housewarming party of their first apartment.

Jenni: Hey, lets go.

Nelson: I don't think we should go in. There are gang members hanging out by the door.

Jenni: What?

Nelson (pointing): Gang members. Right there.

Jenni: Gang members? Those are not gang members. What makes you think they are gang members?

Nelson: Just look at them. They are throwing up gang signs all over the place!

Jenni: You're kidding, right?

Nelson: No! Look! Look at them! Gang signs!

Jenni: Nelson, they are not "throwing up gang signs." Those aren't gang members; they're deaf people. They're just talking to each other.

Nelson: What? Are you sure?

Jenni: Those aren't gang signs, asshole. It's sign language.

Nelson: ...Oh. Ooohhhh!

This made me LOL - I'm going to send it to my daughter, who took 3 years of sign language in high school to fulfill her "foreign language" requirement.

Ha! How adorable is he? Actually, until the very last line, I didn't know which of you was right. I thought the story might end with your getting mugged, or shanked, or shivved, or, I dunno, something.

If a deaf person gets drunk, do they slur their sign language? Hmmm...

That's hilarious. They might have been in a deaf gang, who knows?
