Interpreters need sleep Jun 15, 2013

Preferably sleep in a nice hotel and all, no jet lag, no airport/into-the-jammed-city-traffic fatigue, no nothing.

And they need more loving from the society as a whole.

That must be truly mortifying if you're the interpreter. Aside from that, it's downright amusing.
