    like I say, great minds think alike...*S*..nm

    LOL. I think it's more desperate minds than great ones. :)
    You GOT it !!!! Great minds think alike *GMTA*

    GMTA-great minds think alike..sm
    a little hard work never killed anybody....*LOL*
    Haha! Great minds at work! - nm
    Inquiring minds want to know!
    I work at home for a national in Philly and make $18.50 and I thought that was good!
    MQ has lost their collective minds!
    2 cents for a check?? What in the world is up with those goomers? They must be smoking some chronic over there in New Jersey...
    Free Your Minds and Hearts

     I just starting coming on this site as a job seeker and recently began to read the main board. Up until now was pleased with the fact that I had not read one hateful posting, all of that has changed after today.  I don't recall anyone ever telling the "majority" that they had to celebrate anything other than what they've celebrated all of these sixteen centuries.

    If the finger of blame is to be pointed anywhere, it should be pointed at a society that feels guilty, whether that guilt is deserved or not, for its treatment of other races, cultures, lifestyles, etc.,  in the past and feels the need to make up for it by being politically correct about "everything," not just Christmas.     Those of you who are bashing others for their cultural/religious beliefs will be the very same ones who believe they have the right to stand at Heaven's Gate when the time comes. 

    It isn't necessary to spread hatred and ill will every where, why not leave it in your heart and let it fester there and continue corrupting your soul and not those around you.    

    As for me, I will not visit the main board again, and will undoubtedly have my thoughts on this subject bashed to death with hateful banter.  Please feel free to do so, that is your right. 

    and where were some peoples minds when re-electing--sm
    our present leader, knowing that he holds strong with off shoring?! He wants to *democrasize* the whole world. He thinks sending our jobs overseas is going to make other countries stronger, but it is only weakening us! That was a major issue with me during the elections and why I did not vote for him...among other reasons.
    I think ASR may be able to read docs' minds!

    ASR:  He will return to see us in 3 weeks unless he has no sense.

    Actually dictated:  He will return to see us in 3 weeks unless he has any problems.

    I think the ASR read my doctor's mind!  I would be good money that's what he was thinking! 

    Survey - inquiry minds want to know - how many lines...sm
    can you normally type in a 6 hour day?  Not your highest, your average please.  I know there will be specifics, but base it on your average day, average dictator, average workload.  I am very curious to see what everyone else can do.  TIA
    TENS unit inquiry minds want to know:

    Just wondering if anyone has a personal experience using a TENS unit they could share.  How long do you use yours for, if you find relief that you forgot you could have, etc.  As a chronic low back pain sufferer, Iím looking forward to getting mine on Tuesday! 


    We are nothing to them. The fact we work on production never enters their minds.
    I know how you feel. Working at home can be distracting, just having other things on our minds (sm)
    like dirty dishes in the sink, piling up laundry, a bed right across the hall to take a nap in. What works for me is tune everything out including internet distractions and e-mails, phone calls. No more than a 10 minute break every couple of hours, 30 minutes lunch time and just hit those keys. The end result can be pretty rewarding.
    I love to see people exercise their minds (and their rights)...will check it out...
    Thank you, for sharing...

    After all, if no one would have stood up years ago, we would still be called the 'typing pool' and making probably $7/hour, AND answering phones, filing, etc.

    AAMT did have a huge role in that happening, but I have not seen them do anything for the American MT in a very long time.

    According to the Advance Health mag (which is turning into a 'rag' in my opinion), their latest article is how MTs with disabilities are now being trained in INDIA...and elsewhere overseas, and just how wonderful and joyous that all is - !?#@$#@

    Sisters, it is TIME we do something and take a stand.
    Saw him on CMT show with John Fogarty. Great, great singer with a neat personality and drop dead
    gorgeous without seeming to know it. 
    Great post. I swear by both Advantage and Frontline Plus-- both work great! - sm
    I don't know about "natural" approaches for the house. I have always used flea bombs in the past before the miracle of Advantage and Frontline changed my life. Have not had a flea problem at all since I began using those products about 10 years ago, dose all the dogs religiously once a month with the Frontline Plus except in Dec.-Feb. to save a few bucks and because the ground is generally frozen by then and no fleas are scurring about. -- Hope you get flea free soon.
    Thanks to all. Got some great feedback and ecouragement. This board is great.
    My rant passed, ate a late lunch, now back to the trenches.
    GREAT GREAT SHOW! I still think Ellen Pompeo
    should have gotten the Emmy/Golden Globe whatever it was for the show. I like Sandra Ho, her character just needs more depth... Next week looks AWESOME!! Maybe there is still a chance for McDreamy!! First season DVD coming out with deleted scenes! Can't wait to get it & watch it!!
    It is a GREAT company and great deal! I've had
    Vonage about 6 months now and I love it. The only mistake I made was trying to keep my original phone # - I wouldn't recommend that. You have a temp # for a while, and the other provider can fight for the old #, etc. Go to vonage. com. They have new features all the time! There is even a new soft phone that is a phone on your screen. You don't need a real phone when working - just headset. It has 800 #s you can have very inexpensively - great voice mail. You get emails when you have new messages, etc. I only wish I had used them a year ago! Nothing but good things to say, and I complain about everything!
    Sounds like he will do great then. Again, best wishes for great success!
    That's great Patti. Thanks. Have a great time at the beach.
    You should feel great as a transcriptionist if they think your work is that great!!!
    It is not your fault they approached you. I think it would be a different storey if you were the one searching for the job to take away from a company. They obviously want to get rid of the company and if you didn't take the job they would probably ask someone else. You should enjoy the better position and not feel guilty!!
    Great post -great job of wording your answer! (sm)
    Original poster - I completely agree with this answer, especially the part about finding yourself and using all that you have learned intellectually and connecting that to something that you will also enjoy with your heart!! You have so many wonderful options for your future - much more than many of us.
    IT - great program, great support system. nm
    Thanks for all the great advice! You guys are great!
    Great job
    Hi, I'm interested in finding somewhere flexibile also as I have a little one at home.  I'm interested in radiology only.  If the place you work for has openings in this specialty could you let me know??  Thanks!
    That's great!
    I think sometimes people think you are trying to "replace" the dog that died. It's not replace at all, it just helps fill the void. Just like you can never replace a person, you can't replace a pet. They each have their own special place in your heart. Adjustment period - I KNOW!! But it works out. Good luck with your new baby.
    great - thanks for this
    I've been looking for something like this.  Now I have it.
    Wow--that's great! Thank you so much
    for info
    That's great! I like that! Put that right at the
    edge of town so noone can hear us scream!
    Being an MT is great. Though like with
    any job there are going to be issues. If you work in an office, you have to put up with all the crap that goes with it. If you work at home, you don't have to read these boards. There are a lot of negative people in the world, mostly on here! You will have bad days but overall the good will outweigh the bad. I have been an MT for 15 years, 11 of which I have been at home. I have tried going back to an office setting, several times, but have never been happy. I come back home to work and things are fine for a while until the job starts to suck but I get over it. I have children but they go to preschool/school. They do not stay home with me unless they are sick, have a snow day or a short school break. During the summer, they attend camps and preschool. This is not a job to get into to stay home with children. It is a career as an MT, not a daycare provider.

    I'd say go for it. You will get out of it what you put into it, like everything else in life! Good luck to you.
    I am glad to hear that it worked out -- an IC MT's worst nightmare (I have always had that fear). And extra pay to boot!
    Sorry, but not my man. I have a great
    husband. We have been married for 23 years. I know he doesn't cheat because he is home every day right after work, calls if he is going to be late, never goes to bars and works his butt off for our family. I'm not saying there haven't been issues but the good in him far outweighs the bad!

    You might try giving it another shot. Not all men are scum!
    You all are great!
    Good for you.  Now you need to set your sister straight.  I would be so mad at my sister if she did that..I just dont know if I could ever talk to her again, at least not for a long while till she *grew up*.  So happy it turned out right for you.
    Great help, thanks
    great pay
    Sounds like the hospital I worked for in Florida. We made 18.00 an hour plus 8 cents per line over so many per day which gave us a bonus of around 1500.00 monthly. Those were the days!
    Great TL
    I must say, my TL is a gem. Of course, everyone else in management bites the  big one but my TL is fair and honest.  She has to walk a thin line between keeping her team members happy and letting management think she is totally one of them, but she manages to pull it off.
    That is so great to know...thanks! nm
    Pay is great.

    Don't know about others, but just today in two hours I've made $200 - of course THE best dictator is working today so that is not the norm - but my account pays quite well (per report). I started doing radiology when I worked in a hospital - they "made" everyone do it, so thats how I got my start. When Medquist hired me 8 years ago they automatically put me on radiology - initially I didn't want to for some reason - but now I'm glad I did! Don't look for voice rec takeover just yet - radiology is THE most important department most places and they are VERY picky about stuff - I'd say we radiology MT's still have many good years ahead (but then I could be totally fooled and cryin' the blues in a year or two).

    Now its back to the fray - still have 6 hrs. to go and hoping "Dr. Wonderful" stays on the entire rest of my shift!

    that was great! nm

    Thanks so much!!:) Great to be here:)
    This was great!
    MDI is great
    I think MDI is a great company to work for. There is always work to be done, always other accounts to work on if I run out or the account is slow (which is not too often). I was a team leader at one time, but I got caught on a tough account that expected the impossible. Things have improved with the account and I would be willing to try it again. While I was TL, I was always available for the team 24/7. If you have a problem with getting in touch with your TL, call Deb or even Liz (as she is always stating on this board). There is no sense in you not being happy with your job. I really could not ask for a better company!
    I use theirs and it is great.
    Extremely easy to use and to add to.
    Wow-Great job! Thanks. nm
    Sam-e is really great!!nm
    I am KY also! Great to have another around.

    Oh Great....

     And you'll remember to say "They spend a lot of $$$$ in our country," when you lose your job to one of them, won't you?  That thought is BOUND to bring you lots of comfort as you watch your checkbook dwindle down to nothing and your family do without.

    WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Great Help
    They will answer any question you have regarding Microsoft Word. It's a computer support forum. They seem to respond pretty quick, too!
