Good grief, no. I'm not a mole. I'm not admin or mgmt in any form.

I'm not QA. I'm just an MT like everyone else on this forum.

I'm allowed to have my own questions and curious thoughts.

Oh good grief
Whoever started this, "It's your responsibility to look up an address" should be drawn and quartered. Leave the secretarial work for the person who gets paid by the hour.
Good grief
OMG!  You have got to be kidding yourself here.  First, Barney is Zipper, MQLover, Frankie Boy who ever else  you accused and now she is MQ whiner?  Listen to yourself. 
Good grief!!!
Reading these costs of living it's no wonder people are so grouchy all the time.  I've always been pretty frugal...no mortgage, no car note, no credit card bills.  Total expenses including food, probably under $1000 month, don't keep track.  We spend a lot on eating out and just generally having fun. Simple 2 BR 1 Bath house on 8 acres,  One Ford F150 that's 6 years old, one Dodge Ram that's 4 years old.  Living just the way we like it...not having to worry about drowning.  Not exactly paupers, total income around $7500/month.
oh good grief
Oh good grief. (nm)
Good Grief!
The average Joe should be SO LUCKY to have a 6.4 or 4% decline in wages!  Health care keeps going up and the doctors keep raking in the dough left and right.  If you can't see that, there's something terribly wrong.
good grief!
I hope you are okay.  Did anyone see that show on the health channel last week where the little girl about 12 was trying to purge and put her fork  down her throat and it slipped?   The tines were barely seen in the back of her throat.  Talk about scary! 
good grief!
Don't you have anything better to be so judgemental about! Withholding help just because of the way someone *wrote* something! What difference does it make? This is a *forum*, not a federal document!
Good grief
I am very sorry to hear things are rough for you right now, and well wishes for you and your family.

You have always been so helpful here, and know that many of us appreciate your insightful take on the issues we all share as MTs.

Scary isn't it?  I agree, I would "accidentally" forward to a higher upper.  This is totally ridiculous.
Oh, good grief.
Why does everyone think that they should only get the type of work that they want? It is up to the employer to see that ALL the work gets done and sometimes you may have to do something you don't like. Granted, you should not have been told that you wouldn't have to do DS. However, to say that you were lied to is a bit over the top, don't you think?

With all the griping that goes on on this board about work going overseas, to sit here and complain about the work that you do get is non-productive whining.
Good grief!
Can't even imagine working without a spell check of some kind. Am wondering if there are programs that you can download on the computer you use...even having to re-download every day? Sure hope you can get it "fixed" -
Good grief--

It was meant as sarcasm-- I guess you didn't "get it".  What I meant by it is why was HE worried about not speaking English when none of the ESLs give a rip.



Good grief you don't get it do you? sm
When this all started it started with someone posting about not wanting to work weekends, holidays, nights, when their kids were at a soccer game, blah blah.

You people have absolutely taken one post and stretched it all out shape.

I am neither bitter or miserable in my profession. But, the posters who whine about hours and days and no work when they want work are the ones who are bitter.

Seems to me the ones that are complaining about all that are the ones that don't have a positive attitude as you like to put it.

I am not on a pedestal and I don't think I am better than anyone. But, I also know what it takes to make it in this profession......a lot of hard work over the YEARS and willingness to hang in there. I see people on here who have been in this profession 2-3 years and have worked for 5-6 MTSOs! How the heck do you get anywhere job hopping like that? IMO you shouldn't even be working for an MTSO at that point.

I really don't care if you or any of the other whiners and complainers give a rip what I think. The profession is the way it is. Its not going to change to suit those who don't want to work and it may even get worse.

Get use to it or get out. Keep complaining about no work, no work when you want it, weekends, nights and holidays. Waste your time. I am going back to work.

As for myself and others like me who have done this for years, we will have a job when you are out looking for a job at Walmart. Personally I am glad, at least some of the whiners will get weeded out.
good grief
That sounds like a gigantic mess.  I'm glad I bailed when I did.
Good grief!
IF you have your own company
IF you have good employees
IF you can find accounts that will pay well

Just trying to figure out, as long as they're making claims, why stop at 60K?!!
good grief. ESL saying, "intermittent" LOL

Good grief!!! At least she uses a bb name, unlike...

those (yourself included) who only add a few words in the signature line and never use a "name" twice.


Good grief, you are way off the beam....sm
What is appropriate is that the patient's doctor asked for blessings over this patient's health. What IS inappropriate is *your* interpretation of appropriate and inappropriate. I sure hope you never transcribe my reports and become the filter for or against information that is put in my records!
Good grief. The point is that it
isn't 'whining' to state that MTs have to have much experience & knowledge, and there are a lot of physical effects and mental strain, and considering all of that, the pay is really lacking in our profession. Those are the facts. An IC at 8 cpl is AWFUL pay, by the way. Just because you don't think you deserve any better than that doesn't mean the rest of us feel that way.
Good grief. I hope you are kidding, please. nm
Good grief! Housekeeper in the South? SM

If you are set on housekeeping, I do know people who clean houses for a living and do very well. One woman even went on to own her own business. But in a HOTEL? I'm sorry to say this, but are you nuts?

If your MT skills need polishing, there are different tapes and courses and WHATEVER you can use. Perhaps someone here can assist you.

As another 50 something year old woman, who works for a National, so far I have made $30,000 this year. I realize that is not a lot of money, I'm not exactly busting my behind, but you can make money. Please stick this thing out. Housekeeping is not an option, except in one's own home.

Good grief, charlie brown. nm
Good grief, back to the future. nm
oh good grief - hit by a flying troll
I remember gas 25 c - cruising main street after buying $2 worth Ha, that was after I bought a pack of cigarettes out of the cig. machine for 35c - man o man those were the days when I was cool
Oh good grief. Every company defines
Good grief, hope it doesn't have too many changes sm
If so, we should get our money back on the 2nd, geez! Enough is enough.Some of the 2nd is wrong anyway, leave us alone!
Good grief...multiple personality disorder???

Good grief people, what;s up with all this drizzle stuff??

Good grief. You'd make an employment decision
Honey, you need to get a grip!

Oh good grief! No way. The only Dixie I know of is a forensic medicine person...
not a former bank manager.  Maybe there are 2 of them. 
Good grief.. Fortunately ours is only chasing oncoming cars, so just
Good grief, you started this all. You should have just waited. Xanax to the rescue. nm
oh good grief. Haven't we heard enuf of this? Educated people are just

When transcribing "command" or "imperative" form, use verb form or "follow up"
For a long time I would become confused by "discharge instructions" type followup/follow up usage ...

Yes, the patient was to follow up with his doctor ... but was also to make a follow up appointment ...

In my experience, certainly your QA may vary and/or be inconsistent all-on-its-own ... but most of these truncated forms, fit into what I was taught was called "imperative case" and follow up is being used as a VERB ...

[[[ even though there is a reasonable argument to be made that "followup with primary care physician in 2 weeks" refers to an "appointment" which is a noun. ]]]

You can figure out the prevailing "rule of thumb" for your QA ...

Not having to think it through --- priceless.

Thanks, mole hill... you are right...
My job is fine and I am fine... and I need to stay this way... since the place bothers me, and as the poster below said if it bothers me, then leave... that is what I will do.
Personally since it is more important for me to love my job, make my paycheck and be happy then that is what I need to continue doing as a lot of us out there... If the networking gets me down then I need to quit that.
Thanks for your positive response. At least I leave here on a good note looking at your post. And BTW: I have never run out of work at my job which is a great company, and I know my bills will be paid. Though others are out and hate the company that is their experience and not mine. I am going to just go on with my life outside of here and be happy. Sorry I have to leave, but better one less member happy outside of here, and all leave you all to your networking. Thanks again mole hill appreciate it!
BUSY MT'ing is a mole, I would bet on it!
She sounds like like one of my supervisors.
It is not a plural form. It is a possessive form. SM
The man's name was Metzenbaum and he devised this particular instrument.  The correct spelling would be Metzenbaum's.  WITH THE APOSTROPHE.  AAMT BOS is full of crap.
Don't you guys worry this is a mole, putting out feelers SM
to see how many outraged people there are? I would be.
Not mgmt at all!! Only an MT!!! SM
You're sad situation is just that -- it's yours.

I'm happy. I'm doing what I want. I'm making the money. I'm making the QA and grade. :)

I don't care whether the fire gets put out or not...I'm not the one burning! LOL

Perfect scenario you have there -- yes, blame your troubles on your employer. Absolutely! There's no where else to work, is there?! There's no other career out there, right?! LOL You're LIMITED, hands tied behind your back! Poor you. ROFL

Now go call your 15-alarm firehouse call!!
MT's or mgmt
why would you want your pay reduced at all?? MTs need to stick together
you don't get it....they (mgmt here)....sm
Her board, her rules (Sheri Steadman's board here).
You must be a MQ mgmt plant. nm
mgmt is the problem.
whoever u work for is saying its ok to do that.

Not yet, but mgmt swears it will. I don't believe them! nm
NOT mgmt at all! I just pay attn!! Perhaps YOU should try the same!! LMAO
Not mgmt here. Take your advice, loser.
You've a right to complain. I've a right to complain.

My complaints are about the losers who don't want to take care of their own problems. They are pathetic as the the poor poverty-stricken people from LA using their $2000 FEMA allowance to buy purses and crap they don't need. They can't make decent decisions -- that's why they are in the poverty state they are in. Neither can the MQ complainers. Can't make a decent decision.

I'm going to blow your stinkin' smoke right back in your face every single time and if you don't like it, don't read MY posts! LOLOLOL You're just pollution, that's all!

Have you ever known anyone in mgmt. with ANY basic intelligence? (nm)
This chick's crackin' me up - *Not mgmt.*
Nowadays, no one in this business can possibly defend the way it is managed - except management itself. Certainly not us gerbils at the bottom, spinning the wheels.
