do Deaf people sign "for?" I know that ASL has some rules and I know most of them...but I don't know any other way you could say 'for' so I guess they use this?

The only time I've seen this used is when saying a title, like when referring to a billboard or sign that states "Mickey Mouse for President".

The sign "for" is most commonly  used in the phrase, translated literaly, "please for me". Usually amoung older Deaf indeviduals, this phrase would accompany ANY request. hope this helps.

There is a sign known as "FOR-FOR."  The sign "FOR-FOR" is the same as "FOR" except that you use a double motion and you include a "wh?" facial expression.  This sign  is interpreted as "What for?" or "Why?"
