Why do Deaf clients choose to voice for themselves? Because we need to be better at ASL. (OUCH. The Rules can’t all be funny)
Interpreters jump between self-aggrandizement and self-deprecation. We need a new exercise program. I hear Zumba is fun.
How many interpreters does it take to change a lightbulb?
See CPC 1.1
Don’t take this as medical advice, I’m just saying: I carry a small tube of superglue in my interpreter kit that I use only to seal small cuts on my hands.
Accept that sometimes neither client WANTS to understand the other.
Time to admit to yourself and your higher power that you have found at least one primary care doctor, dentist, or lawyer through an interpreting appointment.
VRS Interpreters: Hearing caller says “Hello,” and… QUICK the Deaf caller either responded, “THAT’S MY LAST JOINT” or “THAT’S THE LAST STRAW”… Make your choice-GO!
