Rule 737

“What do ‘the Deaf’ think about X?”

Hold on.

Wait.

Nope. Sorry. My mind link to every person on earth who is Deaf is not working.

Uncle Dale at Emergency Management Interpreter Training in Atlanta, GA

I have been invited to present at EMIT.

I will be the evening “infotainment” on June 12, 2019 from 7-9.

The title of my “lectshow” is:

Having No Idea What I’m Doing Has Never Stopped Me Before

It will be a great evening! Can’t wait to see you there!

Rule 736

“We don’t have a budget for Interpreters,” is not a defense.

The proper response is, “well nothing is in the budget until you put it there. This oversight will make finding the money for Interpreters difficult, but you’ll figure it out.

On the bright side, now you will know how much to budget for Interpreters in the future so you’ll never have to worry about it again.”

Rule 735

Dear Deaf Client,

You know that Code of Professional Conduct forbids me offering personal opinions.

So…

While we are waiting for your job interview at a clothing store I will hold your purse as you try on clothes, but I will not tell you which outfit looks better.

Rule 734

You had a bad day, that doesn’t mean you’re a bad interpreter.

This may apply to you today.

Remember this when it applies to your team tomorrow.
