Working despite the pain does not mean you are brave, strong or dedicated. It means you need help. Go see a doctor!
Interpreting is a low-impact exercise. I should not be able to hear your signs!
Raise your hand if you’ve ever poked yourself in the eye while interpreting (but raise it carefully, don’t want those fingers getting away from you.)
The waiting room is empty.
Receptionist: Is your client here?
Interpreter: I don’t see him. Do you see someone that could be him? Can you see that person right now?
When the moment arrives, and it will, remember-we are interpreters, we use our words.
Gosh, you know a lot of signs. Now knock it off and actually interpret.
Getting on your bad side should take a strong work ethic.
