Let me get this straight. You’re not offering to pay me for the convention, you’re saying I get in free to any events that I interpret? I get to work in exchange for being there.
Wow. Let me unpack your central flawed assumption. In essence you’re just a guy in a bar saying to an attractive woman, “But I’m offering you the chance to have sex with me for free.”
I don’t like your attitude, so I’m keeping this pen.
Interpreting. It’s hard. So you will cry. It’s important. So you will try.
