Rule 755

Let’s play “Ok/Not Ok”

Investing in an opportunity you heard about interpreting.

Not ok.

Learning CPR while interpreting for a Red Cross course and later performing CPR on a person having a heart attack.

That is Ok.

You see the obvious difference, right?

These blogs (I have two) began as a series of sayings I use to teach interpreting workshops, and political diatribes on Facebook. They moved from Facebook to this blog site: 1. as a way to remove them from my head (cuts down on the noise in there); and, 2. to give a better home to both my "less serious and satire laden posts" and my "more serious and satire laden posts." I guess it's up to you to decide which is which.

  1. What about:
    You work for an agency and they are running 1st Aid Training for many staff at the agency, for their own Health and Safety policy coverage. You are there as the interpreter for the Deaf staff.

    Senior person (not my boss): Hey, sign this form to say you attended, then you get the First Aid certificate too!
    Me: Er, no.
    Team Interpreter: Sure!
    Me: ???


  2. I learned some great cooking tips that I still use when I interpreted a food prep class many years ago. It WAS rather frustrating, however, when the students got to taste what they had made but I had to smell cookies or *cinnamon rolls!* for 2 hours and not get any myself. They finally invited me to join them for the Thanksgiving dinner they prepared, but I didn’t feel much like eating turkey dinner at 8 in the morning!
