You silly, closed-minded, judgmental woman...

In Reply to: LOL-ing? At a time like this? - Anonymous

I am part of the MDI/Transcend merger, so if I choose to laugh at the irony of the entire MESS we are ALL involved with, I will.

Who made YOU the LOL police, or did you self-appoint yourself to that all-important position?

Get a grip. You're not the only one stuck in this crisis so climb off of that cross you're dangling from and save a tree, mmmkay???

I'm sure I'll love having YOU as a new co-worker *eye roll*

Because you are tunnel-visioned and closed minded
I've stated in NUMEROUS posts that you refuse to absorb that:
1. I took no cut in pay.
2. There is no compromise to patient care.

These are EXCUSES you've developed in your stubborn mind set to fall back on as justification to refuse to do VR, rather than admit you're scared you won't be able to cut it. It's as simple as that.

You're a completely negative force and I refuse to engage further with you.

Go ahead, trot down and apply for disability. Just more work for the rest of us who have open minds and are able to adapt to change and keep up with the times.

Kinda closed-minded, but you're entitled to your opinion.
I'd much rather work in Saudi Arabia than downtown Detroit. Talk about double-ugh!
man, how judgmental

I cannot believe that you would post that about this person.  She didn't do anything to you.  WHY are people on this board so vindictive? And how do you know she cannot raise 2 children and type at the same time?  Many, many MTs have been doing just this for years in their homes.  I am one of them.  I have 3 children who have been right here the whole time I have been typing.  I have been an MT for 10 years and I do a great job.  I score 99% quality scores and make good money.  My children have never been in daycare.  We go swimming everyday in the summer, go to church, have family time together, even with me working at home. 

I am sure that lots of other MTs are able to do the same.  Maybe she wasn't saying that everyone should love being out of work, those days it happens to us, but to try to find something good in your day anyway. 

What a judgmental statement!!
Sounds to me like you could use some help with your manners too, Miss Southern Politeness! I'm willing to bet you've never even been to Pittsburgh but you seem to know how RUDE everyone is there.

What makes you an expert on regional manners and attitudes?
I feel like I had my life sucked away sorting through this condescending, judgmental post. sm

While I do not disagree with some of your points, I am not sure what you hoped to gain by posting all of this.  The ones you address almost certainly will not recognize themselves, and even if they do, they will not change.  And for those of us who are NOT that way and do strive to be the best we can be in all respects, it is just a stating of the obvious. 

I am an old timer too, although I hate to think of myself in such unflattering terms.  I started with carbon paper and a Selectric typewriter, transcribing dictation from vinyl belts.  I do NOT long for the good old days in that respect, although I do miss the days when line rates were higher and being paid by the gross line was the norm ... sigh.

As we all know, the times are tough now in the MT industry, and it seems we would be best served to help and support one another rather than chastising and scolding others for their posts.  Of course, as I type this, I realize my post could be seen that way as well, and for that I apologize.  I very much believe in the laws of attraction and the power of positive thinking, and I have never seen negative energy attract anything other than more negative energy.

I cannot seem to sleep tonight, so I guess I might as well transcribe a bit more and make my insomnia profitable.  

That was not my case. I was very open-minded
and hopeful that things would work out.  I based my decisions soley on my experience and not the experience of others, but like I said AL is good because I'm in a much better place now.  
freak?...immature, simple minded post
right attitude, this opportunity is for smart, open-minded people.........nm
FYI - she had it closed before

I'm sure others got the same message when they tried to post.  This was sooo fun; let's do it again sometime!  ya know, when you're more on your game!

I'm sure everyone was so entertained by all of this.  I quite frankly have agreed and posted to you on other threads and I don't really think you're a moron.  I do, however, think that you went a little overboard with the copy and paste. 

I think we all have our moments when we think we know something only to find out we really didn't...

It's been a learning experience for me, and I hope for you, too!  Have a terrific night!

This thread is closed. sm
First, this topic has dwindled into tit-for-tat insult trading both in this thread and the one below. Both threads are locked.

Second, if you want to talk about cherry-picking, it belongs on the Main board as it is a transcription issue in all companies. A word of caution, though: Make sure you discuss the issue and stop the personal boxing matches and name-calling. If you have problems with a thread, do not try to police it - report it properly, please.



MQ Asheville NC closed several sm
years ago because of off shoring. Seems an employee suspected off shoring because the dictated and transcribed times that were coming back did not jive. Did some checking and confirmed her suspicions. The real kicker here is that this particular MQ office was doing ONLY VA ACCOUNTS! Hows that for giving out identities. Nothing like all the information on our soldiers, names, SS#s, etc. etc. She reported this. It was on all the news stations, big news. Long and short of it, they closed the Asheville office. People offered jobs in offices in other states or at home EXCEPT the person who ratted on MQ. I am sure her career is ruined but we need MTs who are not afraid to stand up. This profession is getting way out of control!!!!!!!
They closed the Mahopac NY office
Now, everyone in eight offices is sharing work? What do we do when they were already shorting us?
did - several times - and even closed and reopened.
I work for them. Not sold or closed.

Heartland already closed two offices

in India...they are surely closing down entire transcription business by coming December

Sources saying they were never making any money in transcription business. How will someone make money by sending work overseas and that too not keeping a track of what each individual Transcriptionist or Editor or QA is producing?

I thought the other Heartland had closed
shop because of their financial situation and bad business practices.

Good luck to you in your business.
I used to work for Lanier transcription before it closed.
I worked directly there at the site in Florida. The Lanier machine (like dictaphone) is great. If you use the Software developed by Lanier for text it is also great. I would not worry about the difference. I actually preferred that system to the C-phone. Of course now we have Dictaphone Extext with the demographics filling in and the 2 working together. But the Lanier system used to be wonderful. I worked on it for many years. High recommendations to that product.
Did anyone else when they closed have problems with their insurance not being paid
even though the premiums were deducted from your check.  I found out my policy had not been paid since October 1st and had to catch it up on my own.  Letter and email have gone without response (no surprise there) and phone has been disconnected.  Anyone know what agency would cover this.  Would have to think it is illegal to withdraw premiums and then not pay them.  Seems to me I should be reimbursed for those 3 months.
Heartland Information Services - 3 Branches Closed
uh, and you did a little throat jumping yourself there - mail-order bride? broom closed?
keystrokes ad..can someone tell keystrokes their banner ad needs a hyphen...quality-minded
We know they get easier after a while; the woman would just like
Truckdriver woman? LOL
You must have seen the ad that has the woman with the child on her lap - sm
That's a joke. All the pictures show the moms with the kids on their laps transcribing away. DOES THIS SEEM REALISTIC TO YOU?? But yet, people fall for it! I have been doing this for 15 years and make $62,000, but I PAID MY DUES AND WORKED MY BUTT OFF to get there. I worked in a hospital with others around me to help me out, when I was confident I left and worked at home, now I'm doing my own thing.
This is hogwash. This woman
took the time to give a thorough interview. She worked with me when I needed help on their website and made herself available by phone as late as midnight when I had a problem with something on the website. Not many recruiters will take the time as this woman has done and I applaud her for that. I also know that she bent over backwards for me answering all my questions. I was referred to her by another applicant who received the same treatment from her that I did. These types of things are the very reason why I do not listen to most of what is said on these boards. I find out for myself but I know the type of treatment I received as well as a fellow MT.
A woman who went crazy
Keep in mind that I am old. Back many decades ago, in the early 70s, I worked in a large teaching hospital and we had just gotten those self-correcting Selective typewriters which at the time were all the rage. One of our MTs, a woman who had never been too stable a person, had had enough of a terrible dictator one day and she stood up, picked up her typewriter (they were heavy!) and threw it against the wall, thereby earning herself a free trip to the psychiatric ward upstairs. That happened 40 or so years ago and I have never forgotten it. On its face it sounds funny, but it was really sad. I wonder whatever happened to her......
So who is? That Parrot woman?

No, it's not the Parrot Woman... SM
If you work at Acusis, the CEO sent you a Christmas card... But if I mention his name, I'll be banned from MTStars (again).

The Parrot Person is VP in charge of... what? wage cuts?
A GROWN woman?
Don't make me laugh! You attacked the OP with tons of gender-based insults about a person YOU know nothing about - only that that person would prefer a schedule that did not REQUIRE every weekend.

You ARE NOT grown, whether you are a woman or a man.

the woman contacted me last year to see if I was -
interested in training for this. It is quite expensive, but yet seemed legitimate. At the time I was already overwhelmed with my own work and accounts and just never got into it. Basically scoping is just learning how to read a stenographer's notes and then you would "transcribe" them. My understanding is that stenographers differ from each other with the way they take "notes" so you would have to adjust to each stenographer.

But some stenographers/court reporters will dictate their notes onto a tape and send them to someone to transcribe.
Geez. Pay the woman if she worked for you. nm
You mean the woman who took her time to walk me
through a problem at midnight one night? She spent her time helping me at their website and she did not have to do that. You call that hateful?

You people are too much.
I know who "this woman" is, but who is her lackey? sm
I thought she did it all. Thanks.
Just guessing but it might be the woman who owns KS??
But people here are posting this woman's name!
You did 100s of reports in a day? What are you, wonder woman? nm
He-Man Woman Hater's Club?
ah, old joke.
You-Lose-Ski, Parrot Woman, etc
Mr. You-Lose-Ski is no longer CEO but he is still heavily involved financially in the company.  The new CEO rhymes with Slave Driver minus a few letters and is good buddies with You-Lose-Ski and they used to work together - You-Lose-Ski said that in the meeting where he announced he was leaving. Day to day stuff such as pay cuts is handled by Parrot Woman and her counterpart in India whose first name rhymes with Maybe.
To the woman who asked me about Keystrokes... sm
Your email addy didn't work.  I keep getting an error message when I try to reply.  I can't locate the original post the question was generated from.  If you'd like to try and email me again that'd be great.
Neither honey. Just a grown woman
who does her job and doesn't act like a child who doesn't get her way. Hmm, maybe that's why I can get my lines in during a regular 40 hour week and don't have to whine and complain about every single thing that doesn't suit me. This board has become the poor me, feel sorry for me, I hate my company but I have no guts to go somewhere else or learn something new board.
yes, a woman is perceived (esp. by men) how she presents herself...nm
not a major company - woman owned
around 100 employees but not positive
Sounds like the woman I used to work for. She is not located in -sm
NJ by chance. If so, things will not improve. Start looking for another job ASAP. I know it sucks for you right now but I found another job and I am making more $$ and I have a lot less stress. I too, hated the thought of going through finding another job, liked the accounts I typed and so forth. Good luck to you. I hope you ended up better off down the road.
Sounds like a woman i worked for in Colorado..nm
Oh how silly of me! Thanks! (nm)
In France all they do is strike and riot! 
silly me...
I thought this board was for discussion, as in two sides of the issue, not just complaining, and for sharing among our profession.

I am not judging anyone having a hard time making ends meet. I am simply saying some people have got lousy attitudes. They would rather complain than do anything to improve their situation. Case in point, how sad that you think the purpose of a discussion board is simply to complain and how sad that you have no one else to talk to - like a person whose face you can see. But frankly, if someone thought my only purpose was to listen to them complain, i guess i wouldn't want to talk face to face with them either. It's not that I don't have anything to contribute; it's just that you don't want to hear anyone who actually is satisfied in their job or thinks changing is better than wallowing.
Truckdriver woman? I worked with her before, she was a great boss to me.
The woman who manages the C-Bay office in Annapolis is a former employee of MQ. nm
Ever hear of woman's intuition? Find another before you leave
This is kind of silly, isn't it?

I agree with the poster who said that people are entirely too quick to use the term racist.  At any rate, I think enough has been said.
