    So Easy, A Caveman Can Work Here

    Me: *cleaning the register peacefully*

    Manager: “Oi.” *mumbles inaudibly*

    Me: “Sir?”

    Manager: *mumbles again in a slightly louder voice*

    Me: “Uh…right.”

    (At this point, I resume my cleaning and look around to see if there’s anything else I can possibly do. A few minutes later, my boss returns and looks rather annoyed at me.)

    Manager: *mumbles, and taps his chest with a single hand*

    Me: *looks at him confused before pounding my fists against my chest in a gorilla-ish manner*

    Manager: *seems to laugh and returns to what he was doing*

    (Just after this, I realize I’ve forgotten my name tag and run out to my car to retrieve it. Upon my return, my coworker looks at me, perplexed.)

    Coworker: “Where’d you go?”

    Me: “Apparently, [my boss] and I have regressed to a much more savage means of communication.”
