So none of you holy rollers are eating on Easter
Holy cow! That's, like, a lot of clinics! In only 7 years? Holy Cow!
Legit place...hmmmm. There are a few out there. Whether they have clinic work is another story. I'm sure someone will have suggestions. But, isn't it cool that you'll probably already know the doctors no matter where you go!
Had 1 like that b4..called him the roller coaster!

Yes - if you have a mouse with a roller wheel you can hold down the control key on your keyboard the
or roll the mouse wheel backwards to decrease print size. This will also work on some web pages. Really great.
HOLY COW..can you believe this?

Man dies after 50 hours of playing computer games.



Holy Cow!
I can't believe that's their top out now. I made 9 cpl when I worked for them back in 2000!
Holy Cow! How do you get that much done?
holy cow

I type ortho all day. So for some reason, just for fun???? I decided to give myself a Phalen's test.  (If you aren't familiar, Google it and you will find tons of info, picutres and instructions) Yow, I did not feel it at first but now I am all tingly in the palm and ulnar nerve distribution in my hand.  Probably not a good thing to do when you still have to type another hour. 

Don't try this at home....or at least when you want good use of your hands. Guess I need to review my ergonomic, or not so ergonomic, positioning of my equipment. 

Holy cow
Can you fight the price with the hospital? Thats insane
Holy cow, that really does work! sm
I never knew you could do that. Will really save my poor old blind eyes. LOL
Holy cow! Now I don't feel so bad!! nm
HOLY CRAP!!!! Here's what I'd do:
1. Get a hotel room.

Holy Cow! - that was infinitely appropriate!
is this for real? 
Holy cow? Yep, a lot of those in India.
not Holy, just forgiven :) - NM

Holy cow, wonder what is in that poor cat's water??
Holy Cow Tony....I hope he gets help!!
Where is this job? On this planet of MT? Holy crap!
as Frank Barone would say. 
Holy cow, 11? My brain would explode.
Here's a neat website that's all about productivity:

I have tried WW but they had me eating more than i normally do
I ended up putting on weight instead of losing. I ate strictly their food which is totally expensive. I had another grocery bill aside from my family's. I could not stay with them.

They say if you eat 1300 calories that you will lose even without exercise. Bull. you have to work those calories off if you eat them to lose weight.

Horrible experience. I had lost 20 pounds on my own, but then gained 10 back from WW. I am disgusted with them.
I would be too after eating that! LOL
You would have to do a lot of hat-eating ...
... I believe. What in the world makes you think you have the monopoly on written and spoken English? If it wasn't so sad that you actually really believe that, it would be laughable.
Yes, but, when they are eating something
I often wonder what it is!!! For many years I was disgusted at these lack of manners. Then, for some reason, my rich inner life and imagination kicked in. The other day, a doc may have been eating a sandwich, I wonder what kind? Chips, I want some too! Crunch, crackle, etc. It sounds good. Whatever it is I wanted to know right then what it was and I wondered why I was not asked by the nurse if I wanted take out too LOL. (Partially sarcastic post, but sometimes true, I do get hungry and wonder what tastes so good...)
Doc eating
Okay, I am instantly angry because, not only am I sitting here editing VR which is incompetent, but I have to listen to a know-it-all woman doc chomping salad in my ear.  Poof Im gone.  How rude and inconsiderate can they be? 
I would rather have the eating
and even that gross snot sucking, throat clearing thingy...than to have to listen to 3000 seconds of hold music. They graduated medical school, why can they not figure out the dictation equipment?
You are not guilty!!!!

Guys like your stepdad are master manipulators and they know exactly who to target.  They choose victims who they believe will not tell, who will suffer in silence rather than upset the family.  You are guilty of nothing.  He is.  Is there any group in your area you can talk to, or a counselor who specializes in sexual abuse who you can talk to?  This guy will do everything he can to make you feel crazy and make you feel like youíre wrong, heís right. 


Sexual abuse is not just intercourse.  Itís touching, rubbing against someone, exposing himself, making very inappropriate comments.  So whether or not he can still get it up doesnít matter...itís still sexual abuse and you are the victim, not the perpetrator. 

Guilty of What? sm
Carrying out her wishes?  The last phrase on her tombstone says "I kept my promise"  Yeah he is guilty of carrying out her last wishes.  This needs to be on political board.  I was not very active in politics until this fiasco occurred.  When the leader of a free world felt he was a king and called an emergency session of congress to keep a brain-dead woman alive, and it happens everyday, everyday, the king had to make it a political issue for the right.  This needs to be taken to the political board. This was just a political move, and right wingers will never see through that.  He does not care about a brain-dead woman, look how many, many, 1,000s are dead in Iraq for oil.
What's he guilty of?
I can't believe how many gullible people are out there who have been manipulated by Terri's "poor, poor pitiful me" manipulative tactics.

I guess there are a lot of dumb people out there.

I do it too.    I actually look forward to working because I can "escape" from the real world for awhile. 

Too bad it doesn't happen every single day.  :)

I gave up drugs and alcohol already, so I'll allow myself my coffee and cigarettes.

However, I have no problem with abstaining/stepping outside when it comes to folks who'd rather I don't do it around them.
I hope you raise holy sand! nm
healthy eating

What are the healthiest fruits and veggies to eat?  I know raw veggies are supposed to be better for you too and that frozen is better than canned.  Any other advice?  Thanks.


It's like my mom used to say about eating vegetables:
Chinese, especially when eating something. nm
Chewing gum/eating

One Russian psychiatrist actually ate an entire apple while dictating, and her accent could hardly be understand to begin with.  We're talking right off the boat.

I particularly like someone eating an item wrapped in paper, because then you get both the chomping and the crackling.

And gum chewers (of which I've had several) who slurp, smack and actually crack the gum into the phone. 

Holy toledo batman can this be true? I couldn't do it

Unless I want to totally ignore my family, housework and total sense of well being!

I only signed on part time because I get at least 4000 lines a week from a local employer.  These are tapes with day sheets and you can pretty much pace yourself if you want to.  No schedule with local.  Sure I might have to work at night sometimes.  It's 8:00 on a Saturday night right now, but I'll have all day tomorrow off.  A WHOLE DAY! I'm finishing up because my kids have gone to the movies.

If I am "required" to do 4000 lines a week on top of my local (and I'm already getting tired of having to have a "scheduled online time" with the national, work available from them or not) I think my hubby and kids will just move out and leave me in my little "hole of an office." :)

I bragged and bragged nearly a year ago about how wonderful it was to work at home, but I'm rethinking.

It's been fun for us too! Holy smokes, the freebie inbox is SMOKIN!
Holy smokes...you poor thing. How nice is it that this seeming
psychopath preys on the newbies in the business while conducting his business driving around pretending to interview you...shouldn't he be mentoring his new transcriptionists or something constructive?
Feeling guilty
Believe it or not your condition is more common than you might think.  However, it is very serious.  If you do not feel comfortable talking to someone you know then I suggest you speak with someone like a doctor, crisis center or even a local church pastor.  Pastors have a lot of connections in the community and can get you the help you need, most times free.  I wish you well and please do not think your crazy.  Many people deal with stress in very different ways, some are more extreme than others. There is help out there! God Bless.
About feeling guilty

Speaking of feeling guilty, if I hit the lottery tomorrow, I'm going to feel a little guilty that I hit it instead of the poor guy who's worked for minimum wage all of his life, but does that mean I'm going to refuse to accept the prize or give part of it back to the state in which I won it?  I don't think so! 

I understand what you're saying, and I agree too that she must do what she feels is right.  If it were me, though, I'd charge my normal rate, and if the client came back to me with a "WHOA!!", then I might negotiate a "little something" out, but remember .... whether an MT types everything out by hand or does a few clicks and "viola" (sp), she still has to meet turnaround time, which means you'll find her sitting at her desk day in and day out.  I personally would not transcribe at substandard line rates just because doctors choose to work smart and use macros because for me to do so would mean I'm not working smart.  JMO.  

Guilty about working sm
Hi, My heart goes out to you. The only way my children could be offered a college education was if I worked as well as my husband. We were both working long hours and I know my 8-YO suffered. I worked outside of the home and in transcription. I did everything I could to make up for it during my time off, taking him everywhere I could when I could sneak in a few hours. Don't you know that I'd make plans and have to work (so many times) to keep the account and disappointed him as well. There was one time I had planned a week at the beach for him and the account came in the day I was leaving. I explained my situation to them and asked them to please work around it. They did, but others dropped me like a hot potato. This is a terrible profession for a mom. All you can do is keep telling him how much you love him and you are doing it for him to have a better life some day in the future. Not only was my son able to attend college, but now teaches there. It was not easy. You have to explain, explain that you "need" to work and you're not being selfish. It's a tough enough job (this transcription) and an unappreciated profession IMHO (in my humble opinion). Love him, hug him and try to explain. God bless you for trying. I know how you feel. By the way, you do gain speed after learning an account and it becomes much easier. I have had some awful dictators who no one else could understand, but they "grew" on me and I got much faster and was more in demand than I ever expected. Ask God for help, even if you don't think He has time to answer. If your heart is in the right place, you will be rewarded. Explain that no one can get a decent job today without a degree and you're performing a labor of love for his benefit. Good luck to you and try to enjoy the holiday. I understand what you're going through.Don't give up and things will get better. Don't feel guilty, at least you're trying and you're not lazy.
To: Feeling guilty? From below. SM

Maybe something is escaping me and I don't want to be rude to anybody. I'm trying to understand.

You are an employee who signed an 8-4:30 contract, right? Are the people you are mad about employees, or did your MTSO hire additional IC folks? If she/they did, then that's who you should take issue with.

If these are other scheduled employees who are doing this, you have a choice. You can either do what they do, tattle on them (I probably would), or work elsewhere.

If they are extra IC help, what can you do? Can you make them feel bad about team spirit? I don't think so. Do you think McDonald's feels team spirit with Burger King? An IC is a business owner, in competition with others.

Are the other people employees?

If one is found guilty of it, yes I do. I cannot help
Everyone always has a story and a reason and an excuse as to why they committed their crime.

No empathy from me on it. I expect the law to provide protection for myself and other law-abiding, careful US citizens through many avenues and having a legal record is one of them.

It is a testament to one's decisions, their choices, their consideration for fairness, equality, safety and respect of this country and other fellow citizens.

I back up harsh punishment 100%. A felony on the record speaks for itself.

I'm guilty of leaning (sm)
in towards the monitor to hear more clearly. I don't even know what that means. It's just something I've done for 12 years. ((The monitor is not the doctor. The monitor is not talking to me.)) ;)
pled guilty
I always change it to read entered a plea of guilty or a guilty plea.
Well, I'm probably guilty of giving

more negative than positive feedback not because I don't appreciate good work but just because things are so busy, I only take the time to point out something if the client points it out to me or if i happen to see something that really is wrong.  I try to be fair and not nitpicky and only bring something negative up if it really needs to be addressed.

Honestly, I probably don't make it that obvious when I am thinking an IC anymore, I'll just use them less and someone reliable more.  A lot depends on their attitude and willingness to work on problems.  If someone asks me, though, I will always be honest with them about how I think they are doing.  You should talk to your MTSO and just tell her you're wondering how you are doing, whether there's anything she wants you do to do differently, etc. 


lots of water before eating
I haven't tried this myself, but I recently read an article about two very overweight men who lost tons of weight (not quickly, but gradually).  Both exercised every day, starting off with very little and gradually working it up, and one of them said he also drank something like a liter of water before each meal, which filled up his stomach so he got full fast and it really helped him cut back on how much he was eating.  I thought it sounded logical.
Also, eating like a poor person
is not always a bad thing. I do need to lose some weight. :0)
Never said she was big...maybe it is stress, not on an eating schedule, whatever.
Not that she needed to at all; she just did! Sorry!
I'd rather have the eating than the snot sucking
That just grosses me out so badly. Blow your nose for cryin' out loud!
In case you didnt notice, oh holy one, my story related
Yes I have worked in customer service.  I did it with a smile, and when I was done, I would go scream in a room, not serve my forked tongue to someone who just wanted to buy a corn dog and some fries.
