Rule 383

Things Uncle Dale did that you probably should not (on-going):

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.”

Rule 371

“Can you recommend someone who will charge less and can do the job with just one interpreter?”

Anyone who would take on that assignment for less than I quoted and attempt it alone I would never recommend. If you find someone who will, that should be your first clue it’s the wrong interpreter for the job. 

Rule 365

Actual quote from a medical office manager after 40 minutes of arguing with me, in my lawyer role, about the doctor’s legal obligations regarding interpreters:

If I was Hearing Impaired I would be embarrassed having to ask for help all the time from interpreters. I do not wish to play a part in humiliating some poor Hearing Impared person further.

My actual response:

Being that sanctimonious must be much easier for you because you are so stupid. 

I worked it out with their attorney, who was far less stupid
