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 you guys are bitter. Maybe she's trying to lighten

Maybe she just has a fun personality?

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.
Geez people! Why are some of you so nasty all of the time? SM

I don't think having your husband be the IC and hiring you is the the way to go.  It's too convoluted.  What you can do is apply and test for jobs under your husband's name.  That way on paper he has the job.  Then you just do the work.  The paychecks come in his name.  That way he doesn't have to "hire" you.  You can earn as much as you want.

I wouldn't worry about Uncle Sam too much.  He's been screwing all of us for years.  What he doesn't know won't hurt him.  Of course, now you've posted it in a public forum...

Lighten up,
Lighten up.
I think you need to lighten up.
They are just having fun and I did see posts where others were rude to them as well. I like to look at things from both angles.

It's not intended for young ones.....it's funny to read, but who really goes to Wal mart and does this??? I think it hilareoud to read!! I would NEVER teach my son this!!


This is the reason I don't like coming onto this site....toooo much b*!ching from people that can't keep their mouth shut! As a student and my teacher telling me to take a look on this site, I am ashamed by the way that you all are acting!!!!


I will tell my teacher that I will never come here again due to this IMATURE actions!

Lighten up. nm
oh lighten up!

Lighten up?
My doctor, I would hope, is a professional and I would not appreciate him talking about me or my body while he is on the phone dictating.  Number one he was wrong in doing that and number two, the person who posted the information here was wrong.  We are making light of a woman's dilemma about her body.  I find it most distasteful and most likely breaking the rules of the hospital where he was dictating from.
Everybody has an opinion and from the post replies YOUR OUTNUMBERED!  I AM proud of my country and what it stands for and I did vote for BUSH!  Some people have NO SENSE OF HUMOR!
Take it far too seriously? Oh lighten up!
There goes that one nice moment on MT Stars - somebody has to come a preaching how we need to get over something! Ya think we'll all be able to move on from this? Gee, I sure hope so, too. Thanks for bringing us all back to your reality! You got my vote, sista!
Oh, lighten up and don't be such a
lighten up!

your post was more of a waste of time than the other...

Lighten up a little (nm)
did you see the lol? lighten up.
It's a joke - lighten up
Oh lighten up, unhappy one

lighten up, I think it's hysterical
It's the family / abdomen part that I'm really cracking up over.
Jeez!!! Lighten up!

She was obviously making a joke.  I don't understand you people.

I posted a post below saying I thought trade schools were underrated and were a very viable alternative to a college degree.  A poster responded by writing that people who feel that way aren't college material.

Dano objected to the rudeness of that poster, and now everyone is ganging up on her simply because she thinks people should be treated nicely and with respect.

Precisely what IS your problem? 

Oh woman...lighten up .sm

... and get a sense of humor!  This board could use more giggles and less crabs.


lighten up - I have gotten a lot of help on these boards (sm)
We're just having a fun day.  Are we allowed?  I've also noticed that many of the questions that have no answers posted are the ones that have already been asked and answered ad nauseum.  Check archives.  People get tired of repeating the same things over and over.
Oh Lighten up, it IS funny...

Can't we all just get along?    It's not like Dick Cheney is your dad or anything.... If they didn't set themselves up to be so perfect, it wouldn't be so funny when they are shown for the normal human beings that they are.

Just tryin' to lighten things up! nm
The guy was Russian, Ms. PC. Get off the soapbox and lighten up.
Believe me, the people you so condescendingly "defend" wouldn't defend you if you were getting beaten and robbed before their eyes, as a matter of fact, it would be them doing it.

Keep your "holier than thou" to yourself, as well as your misplaced pity/guilt/anti-Caucasian sentiment.
ASR funny to lighten the mood...sm
Must be the bitter winters. LOL


Allergies/intolerances - sulfa and Minnesota. 

Should be sulfa and Minocin. 

if you live among trashy people, low income people, people w/o goals or direction,
content to just get by, you by default become a part of a group. "people" have decided to group trailer people as trash. that is because there are enough people in that group to earn the title and even if you aren't trash, you are categorized by others. did i think i was trash in lower class neighborhood surrounded by people who drank and fought all weekend? no but i knew i wasn't staying and did not try to pretend that all the fools in the neighborhood were just nice folks who ended up where they were because high horse snobs deemed their neighborhood low class. people for the most part live exactly where they belong because they don't want to educate themselves, they don't mind "trash" around them and they don't want to be bothered trying just a bit hard to extract themselves from that world. they justify everything to themselves i guess saying everyone who doesn't like their lifestyle is a snob and the comedians (Jeff Foxworthy/Chris Rock, etc) who make fun of them are just ill-informed.

As for me, I fought hard to get out and don't even want to look back. It amazes me people stay for generations.
You need to lighten up. This is a public forum. Take the good, leave the bad.
You're turning this lighthearted thread into something entirely too deep. Lighten up.
I am sure she is kidding-it would be sick if it were real. Lighten up let a smile be your umbrella.
Lighten up! I don't see anything wrong with discussing "the Zachary segment" sm
I am a huge AI fan and plan my whole day around the show. Thank Goodness it only comes on twice a week!
"perhaps" poster above is right. Peace and Love will lighten your load. sm
I once worked a summer holiday shift by myself and transcribed something so awful that I tear up when I think about it today. It was the death of a 3-year-old, and I got ALL the 5 dictations regarding the course of this little girl. Give me the "vanity" surgeries on holidays anytime. It is not up to us to make a judgement about who "deserves" treatment, it's just our job to transcribe it correctly. The work you transcribed may have been boring, but that lets your mind drift to loving thoughts about your own family and how you will all be together soon. Like the above poster says, turn your mind to loving thoughts, even for the patient you have prejudged, your heart rate will lower and believe it or not, the day will pass more quickly.
Sheesh. Lighten up. It WAS funny. You don't scan the enitre report, or whatever! It was amusing i

Actually, you don't have to answer that...

While I wouldn't do any of these things I thought it was a total HOOT!! Lighten up you guys. (nm)
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?
