Well, it has been brought up quite a few times, I must have misunderstood and presumed it was MANY different interpreters.

Perhaps the way we post has people assuming things that are actually not so.

My apologies.

Hiring an interpreter shouldn't be any different from hiring an employee or contractor or plumber or mechanic. If one should start hittin' on ya, it's up to you to either respond in kind (provided if you do welcome that stuff) or slap the offendin' cad silly. Actually, "Just Say NO" (thanks, Mrs. Reagan!! (IMG:http://www.deafonline2.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) ) if it's not appropriate.

Frankly, if I were single and my female 'terp were single, I'd ask her to go for a cuppa java afterwards, sorta like a "decompress time". If she responds to the affirmative, good! If not, good! Nothing wrong with that. Now, if I hit on every female 'terp that came my way, I'd be in the unique position of having to hunt down a new 'terp everytime. Like in social life, ya'll gotta have a sense of decency and decorum.

I think asking what exactly you mean by "put the moves on" is reasonable. Flirting? Asking u out? Touching your arm too much? Making eyes? Flattering you unnecessarily?

You could report him to RID if you hired him privately. This is why I encourage hiring entities to go through an agency.

I have explained all I'm gonna explain. This is not a courtroom, I'm relaying an experience. Geez. I have explained this a couple of times. Do a search on DOL if you want. We don't analyze everyone's experience, so don't analyze mine. (IMG:http://www.deafonline2.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/blink.gif)

I *could* have reported him to RID but there are reasons I don't get involved with RID.

And there are other reasons I didn't go thru an Agency. Budget ring a bell? Generally I had good luck with the interpreters I selected. One rotten apple does not spoil the whole barrel!

No it's not reasonable

All the things you mentioned fall under the *put the moves on * category.

It doesn't make a bit of difference to know *exactly*, since that was not the point of the post

I think, actually, the wise thing to do is go through AN AGENCY so that when you are dissatisfied you have a place to go to complain.

When you hire a "fly by night" and get propositioned, what do you do? "You get what you pay for".

Lantana, you are assuming I was not able to take care of that situation MYSELF. I wasn't in a dark alley all alone for pete's sake. My post was not about the fact I could not handle the situation, it was about this particular Terp's behavior. (IMG:http://www.deafonline2.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/blink.gif) We were at a meeting!!!! There is nothing wrong with people flirting, trying to see if one is "interested" in dating, etc. but putting the moves on your client while in the middle of a meeting is just not cool.

He was not a "fly by night" Terp, he actually worked for the agency in town but I recruited Terps because I could pay them more than the agency did and less than what the agency would charge me. He even came with paperwork if you care.

Boy the "assumption meter" is running full blast here.

Whoa! No need to get all defensive and personal. Since others had not complained about interpreters "coming on to them", some of us wondered what the guy DID that was so bad that it had to be brought up several times. ( In my day we were usually flattered to have a guy notice us).

The right to have an interpreter is our nation's gift to us deafies and I do feel that we need to thank our lucky stars that we have that right.

Of course I am going to get defensive. (IMG:http://www.deafonline2.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/poke.gif)

As I explained in "other posts" (do a search on DOL) this same "Interpreter" was seeking a deaf wife. Nothing special about me except he wanted someone deaf. I did meet that criteria if you want to count that as a plus. If I bring it up more than once, well excuse moi. My memory isn't as good as yours.

As someone said to me privately, your apology came with a slap.

And WHO is talking about not thanking GOOD interpreters??? (IMG:http://www.deafonline2.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/blink.gif)

Flattered that someone noticed us? Big difference between being noticed appropriately and being hit on during a business meeting. I'm not flattered with that!

I'm changing the subject. Carry on if you wish but I'm done.

Amidst all this talk of sex-crazed interpreters, there was an earlier post I wanted to address -

I can't speak for other interpreter training programs, but I can tell you that neither in the ITP in which I work nor in our local deaf or interpreting communities (or at conferences I've attended) do we walk around quoting Harlan Lane. MJ Bienvenu and Betty Colonomos, definitely; Gil Eastman and Ella Mae Lentz, absolutely. Harlan Lane? Rarely and personally, never.

(IMG:http://www.deafonline2.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/wacko.gif) ~ What happend IzzisGirl repeatly same post'n here.. ???

Depends on an interpreter have provide better services by Deaf Community and other Agency too..
Only In my homeland has 3 an interpter accesiable goes to London,Ont and St Thomas, and other town too.. Isn't enough an interpreter for Deaf Community.. Really need more an intepreter at the CHS..


Flirting an interpreter... *cough* No Thanks.. I don't see any Deaf Commuity who flirt an interpreter.. None of them. They thinks that conflict interest invovled flirt an interpreter in the community or Agency too. Which speaks professional proprite.
