Great posting!
If a child is having trouble acting appropriately in a classroom setting, how is plucking him out of his element and secluding him from his peers (home schooling) going to do anything but make it even worse?

Find professional help. It's out there. You just have to do your homework and insist on answers!
Wow! Great, thanks for posting.


thanks for posting...what a great site, too. (nm)
Great posting, and I agree 100%
Whether Dr. Phil says it or one of us says it, no one can make you do anything you don't want to do. Maybe it's time to do some self-evaluation and try to figure out why you're in such desperate need of approval.
Great, now we have a schizo posting to self... : (
I found a GREAT job by posting my resume here. :-)
I didn't have much faith in the process since I have heard that hundreds of people respond to each ad posted, but decided to give it a try anyway ... and I'm glad I did.  I was contacted by a small company with a great owner who pays well and treats me with courtesy and respect.  Thanks MT Stars! 
a lot needs to change...Great posting! .BRAVO.
I specifically liked this statement:

Why are MTSOs so afraid to approach a lousy dictator?

and everything you said is absolutely correct!

If you hate your company, find another job and stop whining.
::::applause:::: NM
Double applause! nm
:::huge applause for you::: nm
Not to flame but every day there's posting after posting about how awful MQ is

Why does anyone still work there?

I don't get it.

Saw him on CMT show with John Fogarty. Great, great singer with a neat personality and drop dead
gorgeous without seeming to know it. 
Great post. I swear by both Advantage and Frontline Plus-- both work great! - sm
I don't know about "natural" approaches for the house. I have always used flea bombs in the past before the miracle of Advantage and Frontline changed my life. Have not had a flea problem at all since I began using those products about 10 years ago, dose all the dogs religiously once a month with the Frontline Plus except in Dec.-Feb. to save a few bucks and because the ground is generally frozen by then and no fleas are scurring about. -- Hope you get flea free soon.
Thanks to all. Got some great feedback and ecouragement. This board is great.
My rant passed, ate a late lunch, now back to the trenches.
GREAT GREAT SHOW! I still think Ellen Pompeo
should have gotten the Emmy/Golden Globe whatever it was for the show. I like Sandra Ho, her character just needs more depth... Next week looks AWESOME!! Maybe there is still a chance for McDreamy!! First season DVD coming out with deleted scenes! Can't wait to get it & watch it!!
It is a GREAT company and great deal! I've had
Vonage about 6 months now and I love it. The only mistake I made was trying to keep my original phone # - I wouldn't recommend that. You have a temp # for a while, and the other provider can fight for the old #, etc. Go to vonage. com. They have new features all the time! There is even a new soft phone that is a phone on your screen. You don't need a real phone when working - just headset. It has 800 #s you can have very inexpensively - great voice mail. You get emails when you have new messages, etc. I only wish I had used them a year ago! Nothing but good things to say, and I complain about everything!
Sounds like he will do great then. Again, best wishes for great success!
That's great Patti. Thanks. Have a great time at the beach.
You should feel great as a transcriptionist if they think your work is that great!!!
It is not your fault they approached you. I think it would be a different storey if you were the one searching for the job to take away from a company. They obviously want to get rid of the company and if you didn't take the job they would probably ask someone else. You should enjoy the better position and not feel guilty!!
Great post -great job of wording your answer! (sm)
Original poster - I completely agree with this answer, especially the part about finding yourself and using all that you have learned intellectually and connecting that to something that you will also enjoy with your heart!! You have so many wonderful options for your future - much more than many of us.
IT - great program, great support system. nm
Thanks for all the great advice! You guys are great!
What MQ is really doing and how they are crookedly counting lines, but someone keeps deleting my post.
Done! Thanx for posting this!! (nm)
I am not the only one posting here.
Others see it too because they are responding as well. I don't think that you are Zipper in the least. If you would notice the posts from Zipper, Frankie Boy and No whining the wording is almost exactly the same in their posts and Barney is defending them. If you ever saw the posts from Frankie Boy and Zipper, they were extremely offensive. No one in their right mind would think they are funny or want them back on the board.
thanks to all for posting
your post touched me most because i about your same age (52) and now have a 3 yr old to ride. I tried to send to your e/m but it wouldn't send (said invalid e/mail)... My husband told me (ex-racerider) to ride in the corral til we got used to each other -- i thought, 2 hours in a corral? -- i've always just rode out in the open...but now i find that i've spent these last 3 wk exclusively in the corral except for 2 outings when a friend could go with me. I feel like all my molecules have started to respond to the movement under me again (pretty rusty), but was totally upset by those feelings of *&#%# ?? Hate to call it fear, because i have felt true fear before and this was different. But it was totally new to me and i didn't like it. Yesterday was better. I always had so much confidence before and its making me doubt myself to have had these fleeting feelings that day. This is probably about the best colt to have if i'm starting with a young horse (which i also didn't plan on doing, another story); he's been well-started and basically laid back and level headed...again, thanks for your post (and to all). jml
Thanks for posting this...

Some of my stuff has been acting weird, too.  Just curious...have you tried uninstalling the Update w/ Service Pack?  Long story short, my DBF is in IT, said to uninstall the update, but when I tried it said "this update cannot be uninstalled."  Oh great!!!  Guess I should have known to have him install a Service Pack manually.  They can screw things up big-time sometimes if they're not done right. 

Anyway, ditto on the heads up folks.

Thanks for posting that ...
I'm a real sucker for cute animal stuff ... now I want a squirrel LOL
blah blah
How sad. Thanks for posting this
I am sorry about posting this here, but
I need help asap.  I asked on the tech board about a couple of things:  1.  Since I installed VWPlayer on my PC, it has been running a lot slower and my screen has been freezing causing me to lose jobs.  Also, everywhere I look for directions on backing up autocorrect, it says something about look in C:ProgramFilesMicrosoftOffice and then it says office10, but my only option is to look in Office and when I do, it does not say macros.  I have MS Word 2000 if that helps.  Also, I just recently added some memory (going from 128 to 384 after addng 256)  Are there any techies around?  Thanks for all your help!!
Thanks for posting...
hat is what I make now as an MT, of course, which is par.

do they have a different name/classification/description now for that job duty?

the AAMT is always boasting how they are going to help transition MTs into the technology, but have yet to offer ANYthing more, as to how, when, for whom, etc.

I am keeping my fingers crossed that this does not mean a cut in pay...

appreciate the input...
posting sm
Post anytime. We all make mistakes and we all have been there. I posted something upset and I've been in the business for years. I got some smart mouthed answers and I received help that discounted that, so it evened out. Posting is good for you, you are as sick as your secrets and I am not going to judge anyone who posts upset. That's a good thing, get it off your chest. Don't run away. Stay and we'll support you IMHO. Good luck to you, sounds like you're having a tough time. Been there, done that, I showed up 2 hours late for a TAT in my black dress and got a nasty remark. I buried my Dad at 9:00 and went at 11:00 am to return my work. I said, "I just buried my Dad this morning." Didn't make a darned bit of difference. You get no sympathy from TAT excuses, believe me, one doc told me he didn't care who died, he just wanted his work. Stay, please.
She was posting under a different name

so, honestly, I'm new, what is THIS board for?
I think some of those are posting, above.

Thanks for posting
I imagine those shows do over dramatize everything. But I do hope it really did give your husband an overall appreciation for what you do. I work part-time, I couldn't even imagine working full-time and doing all of my mom/wife/housekeeper duties.

Yes, thanks for posting...SM
You can't always believe what you see on TV. All of that is edited to make for better ratings. It seemed like you both gained a little something from the experience though, so that is a plus.

If you don't mind me asking, what made you both decide you wanted to go on the show?
you are the one who is posting under different--sm
names, you little troll you. why don't you just stay off this board, Kikki, if you just hate everything, everybody, and your own life so much. you are pathetic. You had better find yourself some help. We all know who you are. The only one you are fooling is yourself. You are truly the devils spawn...and maybe you had better look that up to know what it means. go away!
where did my posting go?
I just posted something less than an hour ago about input on companies. Now it is not here?
Why don't you try posting it
on the job seeker's board that you need overflow/vacation help?  You may find some candidates that are willing to help.  If it needs to be local then state that the candidate would need to live in that area.  Just a suggestion.  Good luck.  Some transcriptionists like to help out and to try something different.  It is also a great way to network and meet new people.   
thank you for posting this

I saw a similar ad, maybe the same one as you, and I too wondered how much could be done in an hour.  It sounded like it could be fascinating but I too was apprehensive about how complicated it would be and what the hourly pay would amount to. 

I used to do this kind of thing back in the 80s and charged at a minimum $25 an hour based on the time it took me to transcribe.  I got plenty of work, but it was often a headache trying to follow along and keep track of who was saying what, etc.  If it was really difficult, I'd contact them after an hour or so into it and tell them it was going to be pretty expensive and give them the option of taking it elsewhere.  They usually told me to keep going and they'd pay whatever it cost and then tell their friends so I'd keep getting more and more of it.  Sometimes it seemed like no amount of money was worth the hassle of it!! 

thank you for posting that....
a lot of us who work for -you know who- are really vulnerable right now because we are looking for an out. If it sounds to good to be true it usually is.
Try posting this on
the company board. I have also read a lot of negative things about them, actually just after I turned down an offer by them for another job. Sounds like I might have made the right decision but again, post on the company board and I'm sure you'll get feedback there.
Wow, with so many posting here
I think making over 40 thousand a year is a good living, for this job. I don't know why so many say they can't pay their bills or this profession pays less than minimum wage. Last I heard, minimum wage is way less than 50 thousand a year, and also being able to stay home. That, to me, is a good living wage. I don't make 50 thousand, but I would like to and am going to try.
LOL! Thanks for posting this.


Just re-posting about speakers, as I did not get any responses: Note: I have the couple speaker brands that were originally mentioned written down.

I would like to get away from headphones too.

Where do I find those speakers mentioned (or other good ones I can use)?

Right now I am plugging my headphones into $30 speakers I got at Best Buy. They sound crappy without my headphones.

Thanks for any help you can provide.
