Rule 642

You can’t sign interpreter without Asshole.

Ladies and gentleman a round of applause if you will for Anne Leahy!

Rule 641

Teamed today with an interpreter who graduated from my program:

“You totally stole that interpretation right from an example I gave in class!

Good for you!

That means you paid attention in class!”

Rule 639

Dear Interpreter That I Mentor:

Don’t try to be “more like me.” The world already has a “me.”

The world needs a “you.” Be “more like you!”

I will pass along all that is “me” and you will build onto it all that is “you.” If I do my job well “you” will be a better interpreter than I ever was or could ever hope to be.

Because the future needs a “you.”

Rule 638

When a storyteller tells you, “oh don’t worry, I’m telling the same story that you interpreted for last time, remember!

It’s never the same story.

Rule 637

“It was just that one time…”

Unethical behavior is like a mouse in your house. If you see one there are many many more there, you just haven’t seen them yet.

Rule 636

Arguments grow on trees, disagreements are always in season and a fight is easy to pick, so be careful that they don’t become part of your daily diet!
