Rule 139

The audience will be distracted by the interpreters, for about 3 minutes. Then they will all realize they don’t understand Sign Language, mutter “pretty,” and just watch the rest of the performance.

Rule 51

When a hearing person says “if you will not volunteer to interpret, you will leave this client without an interpreter,” the proper answer is:

No. You will.

I am ready, willing and able to interpret but you are not will to hire me.

The moment you are ready to pay for the service, I will provide it.
