The biggest difference between Interpreters and Translators is that the former work closely with people. This means that interpreters need a whole set of tools to help control, well, you know \"bodily functions.\"

I want to share with you my \"take to court\" kit:

I always have Advil (for headaches)

Gas-X to help dissipate gas before it happens. Beano works too.

Listerine makes breath freshener tabs that I can use in case of really bad breath (oh, the times I wanted to give one of those to the defendant...)

I also have with me a few power bars for a quick \"carry-me-over\" in the hallway on a long day in court.



How about you? Do you work with the public? What do you have in your take-to-court kit?

About the same thing: Excedrin Migrane, Everest mint gum for myself (and yes, I would love to give one to the client), I drink about 3 or 4 cokes during the day and lots of smoke breakes. That\'s my kit.
