LOL! You calls 'em as you sees 'em, girl!
Love 'em or leave 'em
I don't have a real solution, but I have been known to log off of that account whenever I see this happen.  I then try to find work on one of the other accounts to which I am assigned, but there is often no other work available.  I conclude that the only choice is love 'em or leave 'em.  A private client might be nice, but that brings other headaches.
If U can't beat 'em join 'em
This is NOT the only industry that outsources and you are fooling yourselves if you think that it will stop.
Isn't that what causes 'em to sag?
don't let 'em get to you, KB
As we teach our children, ignore it.
you tell 'em

Can you hear me clapping at this end and yelling BRAVO!!!  Right on!!!

Has anyone ever died from doing hanging indents?  I may be the first.  LET ME DO WHAT I NEED TO DO MICROSOFT!!!!!  (yes, I'm yelling). 

Cut 'em off???
stump 'em
I'll never forget my first day of college when the instructor wrote on the chalkboard -- panhysterosalpingooophorectomy and said "You will know what this means by the end of the day!"  This is an easy one for us now, but back then it was like "Yeah, right."  This is one of my husband's favorite words to throw at people at parties, etc. -- and he even knows the correct meaning of the term!!  I hate when people say stuff like "Where can I find a job like yours, typing at home, I could do that no problem."  They think that if they can type, they can do our jobs.  I'd like to see 'em try.....heeheehee
found 'em (sm)
did a search for clairsol, found Cheviot technology, and here they are in New Delhi. Search in these two pages for clairsol, and/or Cheviot, you will find www.clairsol.com, with an Indian name for owner.




Cheviot Technology (Software Div of Cheviot Intl Ltd)

Specialisation: Client Server, Telecom/ Networking, Internet, E - Commerce, Migration and Conversion

Website / Email: www.clairsol.com

City: New Delhi

And.....Found Clairvoyant Solutions, in Mumbai, which looks like the same company to me...


Sure looks to me like they are in India, in some shape or form....I hope this helps you....good luck, and let us know how it goes.
Tell 'em sister....

Do you see how fast the haters come here to say "big deal."  Any one of us can have our own accounts (I have 2 of my own).  I make the same as you round about $50.00 an hour.  What a relief because I also IC for an online company making 8 cpl (round about $20.00 an hour).  We can't sit around and complain; that accomplishes nothing.

BTW, I think 5 cpl for VR is good...  In case anyone cares what I think!  I just think it would be hard for me to learn the hot keys to make it go faster, but then again maybe I'd be quicker at it (20+ years in the biz). 

Just let them drink their Hatorade and be haters all their lives!!!! 

VR funnies - 3 of 'em

Cardiolite stress test which was negative for reversible skin.

HIDA scan negative for cystic duct or common bile duct obstruction with normal feeding of the gallbladder.

Ultrasound of the abdomen demonstrated a fatty liver but no evidence of a dietitian.

It's worth it...Git 'em!
I had one customer who tried to stiff me for some work I performed. I had all the paperwork in order, all the ducks lined up, etc. It was a amount somewhere near $1400.

I didn't go the SCC route at all. I filed a lien against the woman's home for the amount owed, the filing costs, and >>monthly late charges<< that had accrued up to the point of the filing of the lien. Then I waited for about 17 months or so.

When she found out that she couldn't sell her property until the lien was settled, SHE got in contact with me. She "offered" me her personal check (nyet) to settle the debt, but with her track record, I refused and would only take cash at that point in time.

She hemmed and hawed and tried to con me again, but I didn't budge, and the lien stayed put. She finally ponied up the cash, because she had to sell the house, and it couldn't be sold until the lien was satisfied.

I did lose in that deal, however. I forgot about the lien removal filing fee, so I was out $35, but I recovered the majority of the money owed.

You may just want to check out your state's lien laws.

You tell 'em girl!

stay off the porch!  Life is what you make it!  Only you can make it happen, not the President, not the Pope, and certainly not working for a national.  Some say they make boatloads off of a national, but they are hard workers that love to stay chained to the desk with no kids, (as I've seen posted) and no LIFE!  Get a grip people!  If this gal is thriving, let her thrive.  Why call her out for that?  Why?  She should be able to voice her opinion, and no I am not the poster above, I am a different poster before anyone even starts with that! 

Good golly for you Miss Molly - you hit paydirt!      Some of us love this profession enough to make it work, and yes ma'am I've gotten my fair share and then some!  I am living the good life!   

Give 'em the Beatles!
ALL little kids love 'em (seriously!). Give John, Paul, George & Ringo a try!
I love 'em too. I can dream, can't I?

If you hate 'em, verbatim!
Oh yeah!!!!!! Keep 'em comin'!!!!!! nm
or just go in and be so obnoxious about "hang 'em all" that
no one WANTS you on their jury!  But don't get smart on the jury form. A guy in Florida got contempt in court and spent the night in jail along with a fine for writing on his jury form that he had been a mail bomber, etc.

Yeah, right. You go change 'em. LOL

I so agree - ESLs once ya get 'em ya really

I happen to be very_good w/accents, also living in a very diverse area (and let's not forget, being an MT am we are also supposed to be excellent listeners)

what I think the OP doesn't get is ALL LANGUAGE commences in the heart - we are all the same - just *hearing* different words for much of what we all talk about on a daily level.....they say the similar things about similar issues ongoing in the world, and, instead of getting ALL freaked out when one *hears* an accent, my suggestion (unsolicited as it is) would be to try to become a better listener.

To the OP, about your hypothetical blurb telling them to *go back to their countries*...guess what?  Your relatives came from elsewhere, unless you're native American....and somehow I doubt that you are;

Would you have liked your ancestors to be told similar, holding that same exact thought as you, about they should all go back to their own countries?  hmmmmm?

Time to open the brains nice and wide to things that are different but ongoing all over the world 24/7/365....better late than never...I have some great ESL dictators and some not so great, but first and foremost have AMERICAN ANGLO mushmouths who just care less for the most part.....

Have a nice evening....

You gotta love 'em
I had a CNP who prounced epistaxis without the "s" - epeetaxis.  I won't even tell you what she did with some drug names.  The really fun one was when she stumbled three times over cerumen, never did pronounce it correctly and then spelled it for me.
Unbelievable!  See what I mean about my experience versus your experience?  TransTech absolutely has the most knowledgeable and nicest techs I've ever worked with and believe me, I've worked with A LOT.
Gosh, is this about you? nm
Oh gosh! May I ask.....
how you found that info out?  I hit their web site and it made no mention of anything off shore related.......  ID like to know how to find that stuff out on my own! 
Gosh - thank you all so much! (sm)

I am very grateful to those who took the time to graciously answer my question.  I am now armed with information and dangerous!  Won't be getting this particular office to jump on board in the near future, though.  I just found out that they don't even have access to the internet.  Thanks again!  Loo 




I sure hope you enjoy it as much as I do mine!!!  Make sure you can send it back if you are not 100% delighted! 

Let me know how it goes.

oh my gosh, I had one just the other
day. It was a consult and was 98 minutes long, yes 98 minutes. Well after typing for 3 minutes I was "put on hold" and got to listen to crappy music. I did short forwards for a bit and then just went to the end of the 98 minutes and did a few backwards and, sure enough, it was all music; 3 minutes of typing and 95 minutes of crappy music!!
Oh my gosh ne!

I was just reading your thread about the C-phone and lost dictation and saw what you went through 2 years ago.  I just wanted to say that I'm so sorry.  I'm glad that you and your sons are okay.  I can't imagine going through what you are.

Although I know nothing about C-phone, work gets lost all the time and work can be reassigned, I'm sure.  Please don't be so hard on yourself.  Hang in there.


I really needed to hear that today. My job is so low paying and so thankless and I am very conscientious so even to get a thank you from a stranger is touching me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Oh my Gosh!!!
Oh my gosh, its not just me!! I used to
love to stop by MT chat about once a week, to browse all the great and informative posts, knowing I would never see the trolling and ego bashing that runs prevalent here.  I was SHOCKED to see just a few old timers over there now, just about blocking every poster who dared ask a question or make a comment.  Smashed!! I don't know where the usual mods are, but its very obvious and I am avoiding that place now like the plaque. Always expected more class and better behavior over there.  Guess I have to pay for mT daily?  So sad.
Oh my gosh; we get it already.

Oh my gosh...THANKS!!!

Gosh...I have so many...
But here are a few that really bug me most of all:

"...contemporaneously read by me..."

"Subsequently however."

"Otherwise again as well the patient had XYZ as well."

Let me not forget these beauties:
"has got"
"has also"
"was subsequently was"
"primarily secondary"

I guess if your doc can start every sentence with "at this moment" then I should let mine say "at this point here in the emergency room upon arrival..." lol
Oh my gosh, yes!!!!

Back in 1981 when I graduated from high school I went to the local technical school (now community college) and went to secretarial school.  Yes, they called us secretaries then.  When I graduated the program I got hired by the school in their word processing lab.  They had a word processing program that taught the different WP machines then - Wang, Dictaphone, Lanier, Radion.  Some of them had the big floppies, and those were the bomb.  The Radion still used the old tapes.  We got one of the new IBM word processing machines - can't remember the name - and boy, were we the schnitz!!!!! 

I remember vividly a conversation I had with someone.  I told them that in 5 years those machines were going to be obsolete because of this new fangled invention called a personal computer that had just come out that could be programmed with different stuff, not just word processing.


Gosh no
I had enough of that all winter! I'm thankfully beginning to perk up, but we don't have snow here.... flowers blooming, 60-degree weather, fruit trees blooming. I will keep you all in my prayers and hope your mood gets better very soon. It is so hard to do this job and deal with depression!
Osmosis. Sleep with 'em under my head...
and absorb the knowledge. :)

Besides, this is way too fun.

Did you get the download? Now press "play".
They're great - give 'em a try!
Nicest company I've worked for in years - respectful, patient, plenty of work and they appreciate their employees. They're a breath of fresh air.
Newbies, you gotta love 'em
That bubble will soon burst! I don't make 16 cents per line, and I have 10 years of experience in all specialties, acute care, ER, clinic...Ah, to remember the newbie days...I had that "go get'em" attitude. I miss those carefree days.
Been doing 'em for months now in the NYPost. Cool! nm
scheduled days, I work 'em.....nm
they have until jan 31st to get 'em out...waiting for mine
2005 MINI Cooper S - two of 'em.
I keep all the repeaters in my expander. Pull 'em up,
Those are long reports! I like 'em at 2-3 mins. so they
go ahead, texas MT, tell 'em the rest
of it - how "you don't mess with Texas". LOL
distant trains for me, grew up with 'em. NM
I've got 'em on my radar screen...thanks! nm
Gosh, at what point will it be enough? sm
You'll have costs that go with that amount of work --- loss of energy, loss of family/friend time, actual wear and tear on your physical self, etc.

You need to decide what is enough and then live by it.

My opinion, anyway.
