I was asked to interpret in a
union meeting for 2 Deaf ladies, something that is totally out of my field as I am used to interpret in my church. I did a
lot of fingerspelling, and thank the 2 Deaf ladies for returning the signs for words I didn't know, words like super-annuation
and trusteeship. Is VP commonly used for vice president? Or is that more for Video-Phone? The first time I signed vice
president, I spelled VICE and signed president, but after that, I signed VP and they understood me.
I sign "vice president" by touching the index finger of the "V" hand to the side of my forehead and then moving it
to the side a couple inches and signing "P."
I use the fingerspelled letters "V-P" to mean video phone.
