Hey all you true ICs out there, you're great!

Loved your posts.  The other gal missed my point.  I committed myself to 25 hours a week.  Was not asked to commit to a certain number of lines, but I am continously asked for more.  I do it in the name of "teamwork," which is stressed at this company.  I understand their position, but it seems we are always behind.  Their fear is that if more people were hired then there's a chance we may run out of work for everyone.  Like I said before, I just need a little more flexibility.  I don't think as an IC that is too much to expect.  I work a regular schedule (9 to 5:30 with 1 to 1-1/2-hour lunch) and rarely take any time off except my two days now (and I was continously asked to work one of those).    Getting a vacation is another story.  It's time to move on.

that's true, many new cars now offer great

I have a Toyota Corolla and my gas mileage is even better than the impressive Civic! I don't remember exactly what it is but I want to say around 38-41 MPG.

However, I would also love to eventually get away from traditional cars and more towards Hybrids or whatever else they come up with that will transition us away from oil dependency.

Yes, this is true, the posters are given a great deal
of freedom of speech on this forum, expecially on the 'Politics Board'.

True, but thankfully in my case, I have great dictators.
True.. But the little that DOES come our way is surely prized. I think you're right
Seems like the field is divided between people who care about and understand what they do (the smart ones), and the ones who don't, and are a QA's nightmare.
True. So then don't work. We're talking CHOICES here. nm
Partially true, but you're not going to learn what they don't teach you ...
a cheap, crappy school does not teach you all the things you need to learn. And you don't know what you don't know until you try to start working and can't pass any employment tests.
:o) You're welcome. Have a great day! NM
Thank you, I think you're great too! nm

If you get this as an employee, you're doing great! nm
Get a TOSHIBA!!! They're great!
Dell I found to be extremely limited, only 1-2 models.  Order a XP Toshiba!  $899 in Dec got me free shipping, no tax (it was a special), and a good workhorse XP with a DVD/CD multi format RW on a laptop, all the stuff I need without anything I don't. 
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.
You're doin' great, newbie! nm
Curves is great if you're just starting out
it becomes very easy very quickly and not much of a challenge, and then it's time to move on to a faster paced, more challenging fitness program.

It's a great start though if you've been out of the fitness world for a long time!
Fantasia doing just great- you're wrong..sm


All about Fantasia and what she's doing, TV, songs, etc. 

For those who think Clay was a better more soulful singer than Ruben....those people who think that..... evidently have not one soulful fiber in their body....

Gaydar is what Clay Aiken is all about......to each his/her own....

You're welcome. It's a great place to live!

Except in February.  Dang it's cold in February.

Seriously though, I don't lock my doors and if I need to find the car keys, they're in the ignition.

The way I see it, if them fools need thaht cah baahd enuff, might's well let 'em go ahead and have it. 

If it cranks out 500 lines/hr, that's great if you're still getting -
But if you've been bumped down to 3-4 cpl, aren't you still having to put in 7-day weeks at 12-14 hrs/day to make ends meet?
Get Momma's recipe while you're at it. Sounds great! nm

Great idea and they're pretty cheap, too!
Only about $20 or $30 at Wal-Mart.  You're one smart cookie!
You're very welcome!! I had a great time, too! Took a couple of extra BP pills!!
You have a great weekend!!!  MomMT - where did she go?? Too much cookies and milk, maybe?  Bye, Guys!!

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.
ROFL!! true, so true! nm
true, true but out of about 90 flicks....1 or 2...nm

true, true - but what you see as arrogance...sm

I think a lot of people go the extreme -

so, if I had to be one way or the other (being a humble extremist myself...*LOL*), I'd rather have too much self-esteem than not enough (been there, done that the first 30 years!!! *L*).  And I am a truly humble person, been recognized for just that.....but because of *been there, done that* - and all sorts of therapies (not drug therapies), some end up the other way.  Oh well, this was a fun couple of posts - so I thought.

Gave me much to chew on :)  Have fun!  

True but to say there are no good MTs not true.
ROFLMAO!!!! so true! so true!
Everybody sees it but her, though! I love it! Thanks for the giggle! ":^)
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
For Pete's sake, you're not terminating a pregnancy, you're just typing a report after the
It's already been done before you even hear about it, and NOTHING changes regardless of whether you or someone else types it. Sheesh.
It's not funny when you're on a board where language is one skill you're selling.
Hope you're gonna have a glass of wine while you're relaxing

in your spa goodies. Congrats!

Well, you're all complaining that accounts are current and work is low, so, gee, maybe they're
focusing on WORK, as in CLIENT and transcribing, as maybe half of you should be focusing on!!
If you're experienced, try for 9cpl or higher, and you're lucky to get that! nm
Skip it. No one cares. Either you're good on the test or you're not.
You're probably right. Plus we're losing our percentage of good people by .... (sm)
allowing every loser from every 3rd world country on the planet to just stroll on into our country, some legally, most illegally, and take advantage of the social services all us hard working little gerbils pay for by having money taken out of our pay every month. But I don't think we're all lazy. Just the ones on permanent welfare driving around town in brand-new Cadillac Escalades. Saw one just today on the Bayshore Fwy. Brand-new black Escalade with expensive spinner wheels, with 5 or 6 Mexicans in it. Well, who knows - maybe they stole it and it was on its way to a chop-shop. Smart-and-hungry people aren't always hard-working and honest.
You're not going to find a word expander for free. You're going to have to pay
Thanks for all the great advice! You guys are great!
