sooo when trying to communicate with coworkers while they're on a call, how do you pantamime?


Thank you; blow kisses

can I have a cigarrette?; mime smoking

THANK YOU!!!!!; on my knees bowing at them

What time do you get off?; point at wrist, point at them, male jerking motion Laughing

What are some of yours?

- Personal break: put my fists together and then open them in the air as mimicking a fountain. Which is literally understood by my supervisor as "may I go out to draw a spider? (you may want to ask about this)

- Early out: hit my left palm with the other side of my right hand.

- Let's go for a drink after work: dance like a snake charmer while pretending drinking from an invisible bottle on my right hand.

There are others but I think that they wouldn't be adequate to mention on this forum

Transfer a call:
If a co-worker who has visual contact with you is warm transferring and you want to let him/her know that you're ready. Then you let him/her know (put it through) Paranoid
I guess you already know which kind of body language I am talking about Embarassed

A gentle touch to the nose, but just the tip as that's the joke, to say quit talking about whatever innapropriate stuff we are talking about because a customer is near.
