cherrypicking co-worker issue (meant to post it on this board instead of MQ board) sm...

I need opinions please...I work on a very small account with just a handful of ladies.  Because of the nature of the software (trying not to get too specific here) we can see who is working online and what reports they are working on in real-time...

We have one cherrypicker on the account.  Instead of using FIFO method, she retrieves the reports by author ID - usually picking the better dictators of course.  She knows I busted her and she did admit to it in on our work e-mail (not too bright) which I am saving just in case she gets out of hand - so far I'm still able to make money since really most of the dictators aren't bad. 

But every night it's starting to wear on me since she's screwing up turnaround time.  I don't really want to cause a big uproar being that it is such a small account and I need to work with her almost every night usually one on one.

What would you all do?  I want to handle this as delicate and professional as possible because we can't really afford to lose anyone on this account.  In other words, I refuse to stoop to her level by cherrypicking right back.

My boss has asked me several times why so-and-so does so much more than I do...I just bite my lip at that point but one of these days I think I might explode and just open up a can of worms....

I meant to say Job-Seekers Board, not Company Board.

I do ortho and love Keystrokes. I know that they are known for radiology, but I have plenty of work, a GREAT manager and a steady paycheck. My sister and daughter also work for Keystrokes and they are clinic and hospital work. They are both happy as well.
I believe a post like this belongs on the Company Board anyway.

Excuse me, but why would you even post such comments...
are you absolutely crazy? Starting your own post to praise yourself would be more in line, but what is out of line in my opinion is your attack on the original poster here so you can glorify yourself...

That was real encouraging, good going!

Ah, I really meant to post that under the original post
Though it was gourdpainter's post which inspired me to post that suggestion.

What I meant to post above

From somebody in Houston.




I feel sorry for these people - they have lost everything - they have nothing. I blame their own government at least a bit for not evacuating the ones that were too poor or had no way to evacuate.


That being said, it isn't going as well here as the media makes it out to be. Anthony has been down the to the Astrodome as required by the Fire Department, and I went down on Saturday with a friend of mine.


The Astrodome holds around 50,000 people - and there aren't that many evacuees down there. There are bathroom facilities, but these people are squatting on the streets, parking lots, and lawns of places down around the astrodome and leaving behind urine and fecal matter. They are throwing trash wherever they are when they finish with it, and quite a few act like we "owe" them something. I can't tell you how many people were bitching about the MRE's that they were being served.


As high as gas prices are, I will go out of my way not to have to drive by the Astrodome (my RE's office is about 1 mile from the dome). When you stop at a stop light they come up to your car and beg - and knock on the windows. There have even been reports of some jumping in the backs of pickups and even scratching cars and trucks with knives, if you don't give them money.


I know that there are some good people out there, but there are a lot of bad ones too. There are some that were appreciative of the baby formula (breastfeeders - please don't jump on me here) and diapers and coloring books that we were handing out - and some that were bitching about the brand of diapers, the fact that we were only authorized to give out one can of formula per child and that we didn't have a certain kind of bottles. I even had people that refused to take gift cards from Grocery Stores - wanting money instead.

Last night, one of the evacuees was able to score some alcohol somewhere, got drunk and carjacked a car and ran into several parked cars - the police were able to pull him over after a 15 minute chase.


And I can't get over the smell of raw sewage in the area of town that most of the evacuees are housed. The plumbing in the toilets are working just fine - but they aren't using it. They are trashing the place.


I can't imagine what it must be like for them, having nothing but the clothes on their backs - but I think I would be more appreciative of whatever someone could do for me, instead of griping about what kind of bottles they were giving me to feed my kids with, and that the MRE's were cold.


I really have mixed emotions about the whole thing. I feel sorry for the people who couldn't leave, and got stuck in the chaos. I don't have as much sympathy for the ones who could have left, but didn't want to.


I am sure I sound like a cold, callous, b****, but I was absolutely amazed at the attitude of most of the evacuees that I was in contact with on Saturday.

Oops, meant what happens to company if they
I had my post under the wrong one. I meant it for the other one just above yours where sm

they said they are paid on production.  I saw yours and I did understand yours, but somehow I guess while I was reading it, I responded to the other one. 

Sorry about that!  I too made much more per hour as an MT even if I made $25 as QA, but I am vehemently opposed to QA being paid per line. 


Post was meant to be helpful
so why do you want to turn it into something ugly?

It sounds like you have not had very good luck lately, but by the tone of your post, you sound like a very scary person. Brush-up on your people skills and maybe your luck will get better.

meant SM, there is a message in post above.
That's exactly what I meant - then whole post got crazy
I MEANT the one above you is a good post
What??? Above post meant to convey no
They meant in OPs post. We don't know what kind
So people shouldn't assume anything is anti-Christian about the question.
Believe it or not, only now I understood what you really meant in your post,
you meant that she should pose as an Indian, then she would be hired, that's funny!
COMPANY INQUIRIES belong on Company board, please!
meant to say transcription COMPANY techies


I wrote the post and I am not offended, I took it how you meant it.
and like I said.... I love warm  milk, drink it almost every night.
The post was meant for Professional MT newbies
We agree and thank you for your comment. It really was not necessary and somewhat unprofessional in my opinion. It certainly does not further the cause of professional MT operators/Entrepenurs.

Someone once said "The road to Hell is paved with good intentions..."
SORRY. meant for MTSO post below. Must be Sunday
My only night off.  Big old brain cramp here!
Enabling post not meant for OP, just Peidmont.
