Had a 108-year-old lady while LPN in nursing
I was told this year by the lady who our taxes...
that if it the dictations are 2% of your income for the year then it will count...she told me to keep a list of everything just in case but I don't think my deductions would add up to anything since I am an employee...
"mean lady, ice lady, flaming monsters"
watch others feel hurt? from my computer? locked away? huh? you have clearly let your imagination run away with any powers of logic you may have had. sad.
Naaaaaaasty lady. Bad lady. Pooh.
Mine are in year-round thank goodness! They've started their new year 2 months ago.
Union diesil mechanic - good pay, great benefits. We swap year to year on who brings home more sm
money.....but I am an IC and he has all the benefits...health insurance/dental that the company pays for, pension plan, 401k, etc.  Factor all of that in and he makes way more than I do.
to cowgirl - Last I knew, last year the job paid $25,000/year no taxes, etc.
The hospital was bombed about a year ago, but not a lot of damage, very minimal damage.

After I went to a 1-year MT course at a vocational school, it was so bad that I did the 2-year colle
Not only did I finally receive the proper training, but the woman on the advisory board hired and mentored me. I also joined the local AAMT and networked. Good luck. I know how frustrating it can be. A community college will have a good program to include medical language, MT courses taught by local MTSOs, business English, anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, etc.
oil of old lady!
That's what my husband calls Oil of Olay, but what does he know. I'll be 50 this year (and proud of it) and everyone says I look great for my age.
QA Lady
So obviously you were never a newbie? You came out of MT school the "perfect" MT. I have nearly 3 years experience and there are still things I look up. One thing about MT work is that is it forever changing. Not to mention the QA that faults me for things that are considered correct according to the Book Of Style. Just because an MT is new does not imply that she cannot do the job.
Hey QA lady. You were all over the
GAB board yesterday and now you are on the MAIN board telling us once again how wonderful you are and how superior you are to the rest of us. GET OVER YOURSELF. You keep telling us how awful MTs are, so QUIT and you won't have to deal with it anymore. I would hate to have you as my QA person. I think we all have heard enough about how PERFECT YOU ARE and how worthless MTs are.
You saying that, I only wish the lady
had been here at that particular time. I was transcribing a physician who changes almost every other word, sentence, saying oh donít put that in, change to thus and so and then says a sentence and then says delete that. I could pull my hair out when I even see his name coming in. I remember the first time I ever listened to a physician and like the person you mentioned above, knew he was speaking English and I barely knew the first word he was saying. I guess most think we sit at home just "typing" a bit and then eating chocolate chip cookies the rest of the time.
just an observation, but I don't believe that lady had PPD
I believe she was psychotic. It's hard to second guess a diagnosis, but as I remember she had been ill for some time; her problem was not really post-partum depression. Does anyone else remember the details of this?
I just imagine myself as a bag lady nm.
Wow! Your one busy lady! My hat goes off to you!nm
No shopping but me, but did you see the lady with the wig?
NM :)
I wonder if you have the same boss lady as me...
She is terrible.  She constantly acuses me of things I am not doing and then when I call her on it, I never hear any more about it.  Never an apology.  I have tried to speak with her on the phone but she won't and it's always by e-mail which is so frustrating.  I have been slammed so many times I can't even count any more.  I just never know from day to day whether I'll have a job or not because I never know what I will be accused of next.  Oh the things we put up with to make a living in this business
Ask the Fruitcake Lady. sm

Just for grins and giggles.  Still LMAO. 



What a nice lady you appear to be..sm

In this world of nastiness, it is refreshing to see your giving post, your willingness to help a Mom out by taking care of her child because she is not able to currently.  More impressive is that you are the *mommy* but are very open-minded and have full intentions of returning said child when the Mom returns back to being Mom. 

KUDOS to you!!!  You will be blessed and are probably blessed today!!!  What a great holiday post even though it's not holiday related!!  Warmed the cockles of my heart!! 


Signed: Another Mother in this life!! 

Which First Lady do U admire most?
Eleanor Roosevelt for me.
Lady Baltimore!!!!
KYMT thanks for that tip. To the lady asking SM
about the macro, when recording your macro, you use the Control F9 to make a field, but when recording the macro you have to use your right arrow button to get out of the gray highlighted field and then continue with on creating your macro. When you are executing your macro, you would use the F11 button to move from field to field. This is essentially what KYMT posted, but her tip is so much easier!

Just wondering if there is a way to somehow "program" the autotext entry so that it takes you to the first field in the report after using the enter or F3 button?
Are you the same QAdragon lady I had
because before quitting the last job my dear QA had the nerve to get her fingers moving too fast on her instant messaging and sent me a message meaning it to go to another QA person and darn if she wasnít talking about me! That was the last straw and I quit that very second. You 2 might be the same one?
lol Lady, I am not jealous! She, however, has
I still think her BA is in BS! LOL

I think he makes $700,000.00 a year, and if they ask him to walk before his first year MQ has...sm

to pay him a cool 1 million dollars.  You can check this out at the Medquist website.   I think the CFO makes $350,000 a year, and the head of IT makes $250.000 a year.

P.S.  This does not include the perks, like expense account, car allowance, sign-on bonus, etc. 

Our 16 year old son has been working for a year now to pay for his truck.
He's learning how to sand and do body work and how the engine and transmission go together. My parents didn't buy cars for my siblings and I either. I had a 20+ year old beater car until I could afford to move up to a a newer one.

I see all the nice new cars parked in the high school parking lot every day. It's nice that so many disrespectful punk kids get handed something nicer to drive than what all the teachers drive. Oh, well. Honestly, I think most of them borrow Mommy or Daddy's car or are the child of a doctor who can afford to hand them everything.

Hopefully, my kids will take better care of their cars because they bought and built them on their own. You're not going to grow up to be responsible if you don't work hard for something and expect Mommy and Daddy to bail you out all the time.

Oh, my Dad lectured us on even allowing our child to have a vehicle because Dad didn't have one until after he had worked his way through college, lettered on the football team, got straight As, lettered on the baseball team, yadda yadda. He either walked or hitched a ride. Yeah, well, times were different back then, Daddy-O. LOL At least my kid has the opportunity to work and earn his own car.
IC - 30 hours week, $98K last year. So far this year - 28K. sm
Individual IC - own account(s).
Not me, owed last year, and expect to owe this year- sm
or break even, had more expenses this year. Only owed $200 but still don't want to owe at all. Need to start doing estimated tax payments again so I don't owe! Guess I will get off my butt and do that this year.
The problem with the lady you cited
was that she was NOT taking her meds. She had been doing well but her husband wanted to breed again, so she went off the meds and stayed off after the birth because, if I recall, she was nursing, and no one seemed to care whether she spiraled into ever-worsening depression or not, least of all her oblivious husband.
Dear Dork Lady - sm
Accidents are life's learning experiences... as awful as some outcomes are, that is just the way it is. It is the reality of what our "Higher Power" allows to happen in our life. When this type of tragedy happens, it is SO most likely just an accident... NOT ANYONE's FAULT. If you shielded your children to the point that you didn't allow mistakes or accidents (even accidents that never injured), you are taking away learning experience, character building, and their ability to be sure of themselves in their own decision-making process when they are grown. I agree with the other poster's replies - you need a shrink and much therapy and some good medication to control your schizophrenia would be very beneficial I'm sure... Seek Help, if not for others, do it for yourself because you are WARPED!!!
you can do what I did to one lady - and flew to the state - sm
to collect the money. Boy, was she ever surprised when I literally ran into her at a restaurant. I had been trying to get to her office, but I went out to dinner the night I arrived and low and behold, there she was in the restaurant. Needless to say, her jaw dropped when I told her who I was and that I would be staying in town to file a small courts claim, along with filing a police report. I got my money! She has since closed up shop.

I know that not everyone can do this, nor would they, but I needed to make my point with this woman!
Oh, Ice Lady! Now I have to answer to you? Fine!

There are so many flames on this board, and, yes, many women get hurt enough to cry.  I have corresponded personally with many MTs after they have gotten flame broiled for no reason at all - in particular, newbies with some innocent question about the industry, or people looking to get into the MT world, who post an innocent post asking about "how" to get into the industry, and they are flame broiled to a crisp.  I give them my personal email and have made some great new friends that way. Yes, they have cried.  This board in particular is a DISGRACE regarding flaming newbies and MT wannabes.  If you aren't aware of it, then either: a. you rarely hang here (which I'm sure with your attitude will be your response, or

b. you're one of the flaming monsters who love to flame innocent posters.

Yes, people cry - not all - but I'm glad at least some still have the emoticon, oh excuse me - emotion left to do it. 

And all you "closet" passive/aggressive people who feel its fine to bash on the internet - you're wrong. And all the folks with an ounce of integrity know it. So, flame away!

You are not going to win. You got the Argument Lady. She gets off on this stuff and you
to the mean lady, have you ever read something on line
From one of your "friends", or even smiled at something someone said on line?  Thats an evoked response, so yes of course people can get hurt by comments on here.  It's happened to me too, forgive me for be human and having normal human emotions.  Maybe if I lock myself away and hate the rest of the world i'll turn to stone like you to where I feel nothing at all and actually enjoy watching others feel hurt. 
I absolutely have a cleaning lady - sm
about $65 bucks every two weeks, she does all the hardwood floors throughout my house, bathrooms from top to bottom (with bleach), dusts and vacuums.  All the "big" stuff that I never do since I'd rather work and make money than clean my house. 
I dont believe a word you are saying lady.
You're a smart lady.
I need to wise up!
Lady you are full of it. Amherst, tell me another one.
"Ethical" pay for my cleaning lady...sm

I write her a check each and every month to her business name.  She does her OWN accounting and pays her own taxes and things on earnings and such.  As she is not my personal employee, my accountant has advised me that it is the same thing as paying our lawn service yearly, which means I do NOT need fill out a 1099 for her as I don't do it for TruGreen/ChemLawn or any other service provider for our home when we need it.  I do not pay her cash and I hope this ends this discussion.  She used to work at a local firm for $6.25 an hour before starting her own business (yes she is American). I pay her what she bills me for as well as Holiday bonuses (yes in cash as it is a gift not a fee) and I also pay her 4 times per year and give her the day off - we go to lunch instead and I foot the bill.  It saddens me to see this discussion go so far downhill regarding pay, tax evasion, etc.  I am thankful she does what she does for our family and she is thankful there are people like me who employ her to do what she loves to do.  Have a great weekend ladies (and gents)!  I'm glad I got a chance to look through here and set the record straight. 

how did the MIL get to "know" this lady in the first place? sm
I would be furious and do like the other poster suggested; no more to do with her period. what is worse is if she is talking to her daily, wonder what she is saying about you and your family and telling this lady.
My Wal-Mart does this too. I just look at the lady and smile.
Once I was stopped and she rummaged through bags saying that I had set off a trigger of some kind. It caught my by surprise. Yes, it is offensive.
That was supposed to be 4 ft 11 inches lady (nm)
Hey this lady didn't ask you to insult sm
her. She asked if anybody had anything that would help her. Obviously she does not agree with what her niece has done, but the crack you made was totally uncalled for. Why can't you have a little compassion for this lady. She just wants some friendly advice, not nastiness. Have a heart will ya?
Lady on Oprah today who was

set on fire by her ex-husband.  It's an amazing story and brings tears to my eyes to hear her talk about how thankful she is to be alive and that beauty comes from within.  We could all take a lesson from her.


Snart lady, that Madeleine...nm
To Pembroke Pines Lady......sm

You asked me to email you on the 10th and I did.  Did you get the email?  Asking only because I have yet to hear back from you. 

In any event, hope you are having a great day!!! 

Barbara is one classy lady...
