Are You Using Sign Language?

Don't you love hearies? Sometimes they do dumb stuff. While eating lunch with a hearing friend (who's an interpreter), she was talking when all of a sudden she paused in between words yet kept on going. Knowing her, she was goign to tell me when the time was right. She told me that the guy sitting at a table next to ours just talked to us and asked, "Are you using sign language? Is that what it's called?" My friend pretended to be deaf and just kept on signing. *shaking head* If you know what sign language is, and you know that deaf people use it, why orally ask a deaf person if that's sign language she's using at the moment?
