"Mushroom cloud over Vegas"... Oh my Lord.

Where do you get your news, the Enquirer? Do you really think that an 800-pound baby was born recently or that Elvis is living on the dark side of the moon?

Try CNN. Really.

Ah geez (sm)
Well, that's what I get for trying to insert my own images  Just use your imagination.  *sigh*
By saying it was the way they talk I meant with an accent on the word as not all doctors say it that way. I was just trying to help and gave more information than some and do not appreciate the way people are sometimes treated on here.
to oh geez
Here here sister!!!!
Geez, the pay keeps going down. SM
Just saw an ad on the MT Jobs board for an experienced Transcriptionist (of course, they want the best) and the pay is 8 cpl for a 75 character line.  What's with these companies? 
get a life. don't you have some work to do, or something?
Um, geez
I authored the message you responded to, and nowhere did I mention a personal preference for healthcare in Canada, or any other country for that matter. Yes, I posted a list from WHO that ranks healthcare among participating countries. Yes, Canada is on that list, but was the furthest thing from my mind when I copied and pasted that list into my post. Honestly, I don't find 30th place to be notably better than 37th place.

That said, I would love to visit Canada some day, but for healthcare I would seriously consider France (if it were an option for me, which it is not . . . nor is it necessary at this stage of the game).

Now, I have a question for you . . . How would you like to die, or even JUST suffer in pain, on the floor of the ER floor while a janitor mops around you (saw the video of that with my own eyes) and while two people have to call 911 in a futile attempt to save your life because nobody in the ER will care for you?
Oh geez, she's at it again.

what the heck is wrong with you?  If she is an IC she is not cheating or scamming.  And even if she is an employee, how would that be scamming and cheating.  Did she says she is falsifying records?  You have absolutely no information to base these accusations on.  Man, talk about jumping to conclusions!  
lEgitimate oh so sorry. Please, please, review all my other posts. God knows I should not err.

The problem with these boards is that someone wants to discuss something and someone else just wants to nitpick.
Geez, here we go! nm
oh geez....
We had a doc that when he said right colectomy, it sounded just like rectalectomy. If I was daydreaming I would transcribe rectalectomy but would always catch myself...except for once. I got his DS when he dictated it and he said "procedures done....rectalectomy...what the heck is that?" I knew I had made the mistake. To my knowledge, he never sent it back because I never heard about it. He must have just written through it. I could have just died!!

Haaaaaa.  Just awful.  I had one where VR picked up:  The patient's blood pressure is at SCHOOL today.  

Should have been:  The patient's blood pressure is at GOAL today.



I meant the other way around! GEEZ

geez, you seem so hostile!

Geez, sounds like just about everyone I know!

Oh, geez! Too funny!
My house has a shortage of coffee filters all the time, so I never use those.  I like that Homestyle microwave popcorn made with real butter, but my fingers get so greasy that I have to keep a wet washcloth on the desk to wipe it off between typing.  I'm going to have to try your idea, though.
geez louise
If you're doing all that and with two jobs, I have a couple questions for you.  How the heck do you do it?  Whats your secret?  Do you get hand and arm pain whatsover???  You're doing a lot of lines.  How do you do it?
Geez, I'm sorry this offends you. I have,
Too bad I can't give you one for a shrink...sounds like you need it.
Geez, I fit the experience she needs, but
she sounds too demanding and high maintenance.  Evenings and weekends, no thanks!!!  I want this, I don't have time for that, no phone calls, need ASAP.  No MT experience required and no offer of line rate.
Geez, come on. I saw all of the OSi posts,
Yes, somebody is sticking up for OSi all over the place. However, I don't know what is so "transparent."  Somebody asked a question directly related to Smartype.  I use Smartype and I work for OSi, and my Smartype works fine in Extext.  For what it's worth, I post here on these boards about 5 times a week, sometimes on the word board, sometimes on the company board.  I check in when I'm eating lunch or taking a break.  I don't waste my time reading and posting all day long.  I just get tired of never even being able to answer someone's question.  What's with that?
Geez, RAD GUY, got my hopes up there - sm
thought is something new on the market to replace Viagra!!!
Geez!! Take a note of the pay.


Isn't being a medical Transcriptionist being an interpreter.  Seems like our pay ought to be commensurate, don't you think? 

Absolutely not, never. Geez. nm
They pay $20,000? Geez...that would tempt me!
Yeah, I think it is funny how they will pair one very conservative family with a very liberal family, or a hunter with a strictly veggie family. People would not want to watch as much if it went all smooth, human nature.

What did the other family think about how they were portrayed, or did you even have the chance to find out?
geez, do you have a family?
How bout kids? Spouse? I don't think your *work ethic is above* most peoples, just seems that maybe you don't have a life...might want to try one before it's too late!
And "harrumph!" to you, too! Geez....
Geez this gets me excited!
I just ordered this program yesterday and am SO anxious for it to arrive.  I have been an MT for about 4 months using only the Expander build into Inscribe.  I have a feeling my whole world is about to change.  THANKS for all the participation on this thread
ah, geez, Edith.
geez, you guys.
You will find that everywhere you go with every job. Where there is a group of women working together, you will have all of that crap. It's the way of the world!
geez louise, where are you from emt?
hope you're not an MT.
blame the victim, geez
You people crack me up.  Blame the victim and her family.  For pete sake.  You sound like the type of person who would blame a rape victim cause she was wearing a short skirt.  The Aruban Govt thinks that boy is guilty, that is why they are holding him.  He is guilty, IMHO.  His story has changed several times.  If you are innocent, you have one story.  He left her on the beach, come on, who would leave a young girl, not familiar with the area, on a beach at 2-3 in the morning?  The person at fault?  The person who murdered her or kidnapped her and I think it is that obviously well off son of a high ranking lawyer.  Instead of pointing fingers at her family, we should be sending prayers and hope.
blame the victim, geez
Sorry, but if you dont' want to get picked up and treated as such, don't go to places like that p. e. r. i. o. d. And yes, some women ask for it maybe not intentionally, but it happens. People need to start taking reponsibility for their stupid decisions.
Geez, at least give her credit for trying. At least, sm
if didn't work out and she had to go inhouse, at least she could say she tried. No harm in that, at least that is my opinion.
You really need to get a life. Geez, you even managed to
troll a fun poll post.  Sounds like a personality disorder to me.  Maybe you're the one who needs a romantic outlet.  Gotta rain on everyone else's parade because you're so miserable.
Geez. It's a method to be more accountable for
a minimum amount of work.
She was being facaetious about the big bucks..geez.
Geez..a little snippy aren't we?
Geez, you missed my point.
Benefits are not mandatory.

Geez, Kate/Medtrans, are you OCD?
Oh, geez. This is a troll! LOL Pay no attention!!
that should be "in your career". Geez!
oh geez....breakfast anyone?...droool!--sm
if you get the recipe, please share. sounds yummy!thanks.
this was an article she found...not HER...geez..sm
lighten up!
Geez, I guess I should consider myself told off.

The truth hurts and I believe in stating it plainly.  MTs need to stop giving their hard earned money to that association.  I'm going to say that at every opportunity.

The only way we can effect change in our profession is if we ALL wise up first.

Geez - what is your PROBLEM? She just asked
'Got Midol?'
Geez, people, lighten up!!

That was funny, TechSupport. 

To the OP, with the job market being what it is, MTSOs are inundated with resumes when they advertise.  Keep at it and if you find a company that you really think sounds like a good fit, keep pinging them with e mail, call them if you can get a phone number, and be really aggressive.  The squeaky wheel that stands out is what is going to get their attention.

Good luck.


Geez. Where do the ppl live with the all year school. SM
Also the person who stated her kids went back to school two weeks ago.  In july????  Geez, I thought August 30th was early.  What schools go back in JUly and what ones are all year? 
geez you guys are bitter. Maybe she's trying to lighten

Maybe she just has a fun personality?

Geez, this was on the front page of my paper - sm
I couldn't believe it as I had just read your post.  Never think it happens close to home but you never know, do you?
Geez - hopefully it's the "used to be" best branch starting with a "B".
I sure hope so - as I've all of a sudden noticed I'm not getting the worst of the worst, one after another, day in and day out. I still get the "bad" but at least there is a halfway "good" dictator in-between. I still question the discrepancy in the time of the dictation I receive, i.e. dictation from 1:18 am, 2:46 am, 2:57 am, 2:58 am, 9:02 am, 9:43 am. Still feel something is wrong with this picture! What happened to the hours between 3:00 am & 9:00 am? Have had dictation when I've logged on in the am from the night before at 9:17 pm, next dictation at 9:58 pm, then all of a sudden dictation from the next morning at 5:28 am. Lots of hours missing here! Questioned being assigned work - Denied! Anyone with a logical explanation that I'm not seeing here ? Anyhow - hopefully this new revelation is through my office and may change things. If not - I'll just keep reading the posts on who to apply for a new job with.
Geez, you people make it sound like
"my family" has a bunch of incestuous perverts running around.  Give it a break!  My kids never even started it, the other kids at school did.  ALL boys think it's funny to overexaggerate when they get hit in the privates.  It's not like they're walking around playing doctor or anything.  It's the rolling around on the ground, Oh! my privates! that they think is funny.  As if your sons, brothers, or whoever is going to tell you about it anyway.  You're overthinking it and turning it into something it's not.  I did say I do not tolerate it or find it funny.  I am a darn good parent and I don't trash talk my kids' teachers either.  I've never pulled them out of classes or switched schools.  So please, spare ME the lectures and get out of your little glass houses.
