I was out with friends in Atlantic City, which is probably the best place to go if you’re trying to get creeped on. Since the pregame got a little rowdy for my sister, Chrissy, I decided to lay low the rest of the night and make sure she didn’t die. Somewhere along the way, a guy started talking to me. I wasn’t interested and tried to excuse myself several times without him getting the hint. Eventually I pulled Chrissy to my side to explain that she was my cousin visiting from the Netherlands. “See, she’s Dutch and doesn’t know anyone so I have to look out for her,” I said.
In her drunken state, Chrissy started pretending to sign. I subtly tried to tell her I said she was Dutch, not deaf, but she insisted she “got this.”
Just when I thought my plan was a major fail, the guy says, “Oh, I get it. She’s Dutch, so you communicate by sign language.”
Not the brightest bulb, huh?
I just so happen to have taken three semesters of ASL in college, and I highly recommend everyone learns how to sign, “Sorry, I’m deaf” to avoid such situations in the first place.
This girl did.

Maybe it’s wrong to pretend you can’t hear, but what about this just wrapping his arm around her waist? You have to stop that dude immediately, and this girl figured it out.
You just better hope the guy doesn’t start turning bad. Then things are going to get awkward.
