An old man and woman were working on landscape clean-up, in a noisy industrial area. Over time they had learned to communicate with gestures. When the man wanted to know where something was, he would gesture with a shrug, and show the appropriate action.
Shrug, digging action = where’s the shovel? She would respond with the digging action and point at a nearby shed. this was working pretty well and they were able to work far from each other, always able to communicate what they needed to.
At one point the man needed the wheelbarrow, and shrugged to the woman, lifting his arms out in front of him, making forward and backward motions.
The woman, quite far from him caught the question and responded, by pointing to her eye, then she grabbed her left breast, followed by pointing at her butt, and then pointed at her crotch.
The man was very confused by this, as she wasn’t usually so sexually explicit, especially on the job. So he made his gestures again, indicating where’s the wheelbarrow?
The woman once again, pointed at her eye, grabbed her left breast, pointed at her butt, and then at her crotch.
The man shrugged, thinking she probably wanted sex or something, and walked over to the old woman to find out what she meant by the cryptic response to, the location of the wheelbarrow.
The woman was quite exasperated by this time, as the man usually figured out what she had indicated.
So in plain English, he asked ” where is the wheelbarrow? ”
Using the same gestures, and speaking at the same time, she replied. ” I said, I, pointing at her eye, left it, grabbing her left breast, behind, pointing at her butt, the bush, pointing at her crotch!
