## Rule 731

Need a Wingnut Spanner? Ask the interpreter. Chances are they have one in their bag.

Will only a Left-Handed Wingnut Spanner do? Hold on for a minute, that’s in their car.

## Rule 706

VRS INTERPRETERS: Don’t you hate it when, mid-shift, your butt falls asleep? Because you know it will be up all night.

## Random Thoughts From Uncle Dale: Let Me Give You An In Class Example…

Dear ASL to Spoken-English Students:

## Rule 672

Filling out paperwork at 2:23 AM in the emergency room:

Nurse: I’m sorry you have to work so late.

Uncle Dale: (Realizing how both common and odd that is to say) I’m sorry you have to work so late.

Nurse: Well, you know, it’s my job.

UD: Funny you should mention that, it’s mine too.

We both stared at each other for a moment or two and both of us burst out laughing. I have no idea why either one of us thought that was so funny but at 2:30 in the morning it really was!
