No, they just don't look very classy IMO
Kind of the same image given off by a woman smoking. Just hard-edged, common and uneducated, even if that's not the case.
"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.
Very classy and very nice of you. !!

Classy ecard site
I love sending traditional cards, but a friend sent me an e-card from www.jacquielawson.com.  Check it out if you would like an alternative for those family and friends with computers.  These are created by a lady artist in England and are so wonderful and original, especially for animal lovers!  You may preview the cards for free!  The entire website is charming.  There is a $12 USD yearly subscription, but if you send a lot of cards all year long, that's a savings. 
Classy my ____--you fill in the blank....
--I saw the clip of Walters announcing Jones' failure to return. That was very practiced and classy, I'll hand her that; but then she's had lots of experience and people to help her craft such an announcement.

--I also saw the King show when Jones talked about what had been going on and why she did what she did. I thought that hat was very classy as well. Her being a lawyer certainly helped her craft her statement.

--Overall, I totally believe Jones' accounting of what happened, when, where, why and who knew what and who knew it when. She was quite clear, her timeline precise.

Her reasons for handling her announcement at the time and in the way that she did also made perfect sense if you listened to her closely and carefully.

I was in her situation once--unfairly "let go" and for totally bogus reasons from a large local San Francisco, CA, foundation.

I was told that I could tell anyone at the foundation anything I liked about my departure.

I was in shock at what had just happened, left my supervisor's office, wandered into the kitchen for something to eat/drink.

A co-worker (high level staff) was there and I spoke to him that I had just been let go. We talked briefly, he offered his sympathy.

After he left the room, my supervisor swooped in, telling me that it was not a good idea to talk about it the way I did...blah, blah, blah....she could only have been in the hallway, listening at the door.

Yeah, Walters, et. al. did do what Jones said they did. And the way Walters handled everything did indeed look "classy"--with time, experience, and help, how could Walters go wrong?

Jones told the truth from start to finish on King's show and the View Crew and network couldn't/wouldn't handle it and did not want to face the fall out; and, they didn't want to lose face.

The further complicating problem was that as a public personality, Jones had additional public outlets to tell the truth.

IF Walters had: Simply kept her mouth shut, just weathered Jones' early initial announcement on air that day, deferred all questions of why Jones' contract had not been renewed to Jones' (citing privacy and confidentiality), responding to all askers with a 'no comment', and referring all explanations to Jones'she wouldn't be in the uncomfortable position she is in now. Walters would not have been so exposed, AND she would not have needed to get to Larry King in advance to cover her ____, to explain anything, and trying to look good, thereby maintaining her "classy" reputation.

Yeah, it was a business decision all right, handled badly and then it came back to bite Walters, et. al. in the butt.

Whether you like Jones or not, she chose to tell the truth and, as such, she had nothing to hide. Brava.
Naaaaaaasty lady. Bad lady. Pooh.
Barbara, are you saying you can use sm
Verizon air card for working with companies that satellite does not work with? So limited as to where you can work with satellite, this would be good news.
Santa Barbara?!
.... Why I'm just 50 minutes south of SB in Thousand Oaks. You live in SB?
Barbara and the others were surprised that (sm)
she made the announcement today. Barbara said there had been rumors but they had no idea that Star was going to spring that on them today.
wow, wonder if Barbara really said all that stuff (nm)
Thanks! I am close to Santa Barbara and will go there.
Will keep you posted. It will take six months to save up the money. The clinic in Santa Barbara is well known.
Barbara did address her absence
As the 3 ladies sat down, Barbara says, "And then there were 3". Then she went on to explain how they were not excpecting Star to make the announcement yesterday. Barbara said that Star had know for some time that ABC would not renew her contract and that ABC, Barbara and everyone involved had told Star that she could put any spin she wanted to it so that she could leave with dignity and that they suport whatever "story" she came up with as to why she was leaving. However, Barabara said that after yesterday's stunt as well as other things Star has said to the public, that that was it and she would no longer be with the show. Barabara was very classy about it and wished her well.
Barbara Tice - I trained you 10 years ago

Hey Barb:

I was looking through some of these boards and came across something you applied for in Raleigh in September.  I worked with you all those years ago and would like to catch up. Write me.

See the difference in perception? I think Barbara is a screecher.
Her voice just grates on me.
Anything by Ruth Rendell/Barbara Vine
I knew Barbara Walters was smart!
Although I have to wonder about her bringing this one on board.  Maybe she has put in enough stipulations to prevent too much drama. 
Barbara Grow expander method
I am in search of Barbara Grow's or Mary Morken's word Expander method and dictionaries.  I googled these and am not finding any place that has them free or for sale.  Do any of you know where to find them?

Barbara Walters explains today (see clip inside)
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
27-year-old lady:)
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

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)
