the big X

so in japan, if you ask for something and they don't have it, they make a big X with their arms. they could just say, no, iie, or shake their head, but no, they make a huge exaggerated X.

times when i have seen the big X:

can i get a receipt?
do you have any vegetarian ramen?
do you have size 43 shoes for my gargantuan footed boyfriend?
do you have a table for 4? (bar is empty, they don't want foreigners)
can i - (they don't want to even talk to a foreigner)
