Hmmm-I like that idea. I could pin a pair sm

In Reply to: It may look silly, but, (sm) - ta_shi

of my husband's old underwear on him (the dog--LOL) backwards, make them a little snug but not tight.  Poor thing is going crazy not being able to play with hardly anything and I think if I can get him mind onto something else, he would forget about the surgical site for awhile. Not only that, but it would keep our Golden from licking it, too.  You know how dogs are, kinda gross.  Have to try that tomorrow.  Thanks! I'm still open for more ideas.

I don't own a pair, at least not yet, but I

walked around the shoe department with a pair on and I'm not sure I liked them.  I have no arch at all in my feet and thus have wide feet.  I think I must have tried on Cayman's which are supposedly more narrow than the beach Crocs.  I had on socks when I tried them on and they were snug, and I don't think the provide enough support for my feet.  I hate wearing shoes and I'm outside barefoot even in 30 degree weather because I hate to put on shoes.  My DH is always fussing at me.  I thought I could keep a pair by the back door to slip on.  I also garden extensively so thought these would be great for that, just hose off when they get dirty. 

I haven't found them discounted on e-bay and in fact they sell for about $10 more on e-bay than I can get locally.  I think it is Payless shoes that has a knock-off version.  Theirs are tie-dyed and half the price.  I found another knock-off on-line, but can't remember the name now, that are supposedly even better than Crocs, but I think it is just the clog without the holes. 


Thanks for the tip. I just bought a pair! nm
transcriptiongear dot com - 10 pair for $11.00
they send 'em 10 pair to one package for $11.00........not that I need 10 pair but is how they sell them.......
I guess you're quite a pair (sm)

That's too bad you both have such troubles. Good to hear (no pun intended) that your husband can hear now!!  It probably seems like a small price to pay for him to be able to have his hearing but (but still soooo expensive, how can the company justify charging someone that much?) Can you benefit from laser eye surgery??

Get a pair of Sony earphones. sm

Like the ones kids plug into a portable disc player.  I'm not talking about the "cheapies" that most kids use for the disc player with the little foam rubber spongy thingys.  Get yourself a decent set that have "faux leather" with the big padding that cover both ears. You won't hear a thing outside of your earphones. Make sure the ear things cover both ears and have a lot of cushioning.  A good pair might cost you 20 or 30 bucks, but is well worth it. 

Good luck and godspeed MT comrade! :)


Just make sure the earphone attachment is the same size as your speakers.

Rescued a pair from a shelter in Oct....sm

Black and tan. They are 1-1/2 and have been together since they were pups. She (Georgia) had his (Duke's) puppies not too long before we got them. I think the poor things were abused though. They are mini's. He's very timid, she's a little territorial. They are coming along nicely and enjoy their new home. However, they were never housetrained very well. Anyone have any ideas on how to get them housetrained.  Not sure how much longer DH will let me keep them if I can't get that part under control.  We all just love them to pieces, but the not being housetrained is getting old. Any suggestions?

How about a pair of her sexy underwear, SM
along with something that reminds him of home, something they can't get like chocolate. Just a silly idea.
I have a good pair from Aiwa. I use
them when I''m flying and when I'm on my treadmill. My home is quiet, but I've used them once or twice for transcription with no problems. Try Best Buy.
Cheap pair of Lanier
I have a cheap pair of Lanier that I have been using for over 10 years that work just great.  Keep thinking about buying a new set but I never replace something that continues to work.   Do replace the spongy ear pads once in a while.  Think that they cost me $20 somewhere between 10 and 15 years ago.  
Couldn't hurt to ask for a new pair
Couldn't hurt to ask right?  That's my motto.   Another motto of mine:  Tis better to run over a pair of $14.97 headsets than a R100.00 pair... JMTOU (just made that one up).  LOL
I have a pair of noise cancellations..

that I purchased at Wal-Mart for approx. 40.00 and they are okay.  I only wish they had a volume control.  But I plug it into my lanier and can adjust the volume.  I have gone through several types.  I have often wondered about the steth type but for some reason never invested. I also purchased a pair at big lots, wireless, that I really loved as they were also noise cancellation.  I loved that pair because they were wireless.  Then there was the pair from Radio Shack that I paid approx. 40.00, they were great.  Wow, the only ones that I don't like are the ones that go into your ear (ear buds) can stand them but find myself having to use them sometimes....

I got a couple pair from ebay....

RCA's.  They work great.  The batteries do die often so I finally broke down and got rechargeable batteries. I already had a batter charger, just no batteries.  I got 4 batteries.  The headphones take 2.  That way I always have a pair ready to go.  Also, my charger only takes 15 mins to charge so if I'm using the other set of batts somewhere else, I'm not losing much time off work to recharge.

The bad thing about them, though, is that if you have your foot off the pedal for a certain amount of time, all of a sudden, out of the blue.......shhhhhhhhhhhh....real loud and suddenly in your ear.  Startles the crap out of ya!  It's happened to me so many times and I about pee my pants every time!!! lol.  Even funnier if I'm writing when that happens.  I then have a line going across the page!  I try to either flip them off if I'm researching or push the pedal for a second every so often.   But I definitely like them a lot better than that stupid cord.  I tried everything with that thing from tying it up as short as I could to even putting it under the keyboard, etc.  I still managed to get tangled up! 

Sounds like any old pair of cut offs would be acceptable....

The description reminds me of my MUCH older brother's wedding circa 1973.... She was barefoot, he was in ripped jean cut off shorts, the preacher looked like something that crawled out from under a rock, and when he asked my brother if he had anything to say, he "grunted."  Gawd, it was awful.  I'm sure this wedding you're going to won't be that bad, but if the bride is barefoot and the groom is in khakis, then any decide informal summery outfit would probably be A-ok.

Thanks for the answers, everyone! I got a cheapie Maxell pair. I had
I just got a pair of $5 Koss headphones at Walmart
I have had a pair of noise-cancelling Bose for (sm)
around 3 years. I can tell a huge difference when I switch to the traditional stethoscope or Dictaphone brand headphones. The
sound quality is really enhanced by the Bose.

My office is in a loft above our living room. I bought mine because of family being downstairs with the TV on and kids playing, etc.
I have a pair of the earbuds (cheap ones) and they hurt my ears.
I couldn't wear them very long.

Hey, today's my moms 60th b-day, too. I got her a pair of khaki capri pants
with a purple print belt and a matching purple top along with some socks.  My teenage daughter gave her a homemade necklace made of light green stones and a shell that she got while on the beach in San Diego this summer.  My nephew gave her a dreamcatcher and the dog gave her some vanilla international coffee.  We took her to the Elephant Bar for lunch and gave her the gifts.  She had a great time and so did we.

I just bought a pair of Able Planet (Lynx) NC Headphones I'll give you a great deal on! SM
I did a ton of research and found that many preferred these headphones over the Bose. They were actually more expensive. I paid over $300.00 for these! The only reason I purchased these was because I could charge them on my Dell account. They really are awesome. I can't even hear myself type when I turn on the NC feature. They are comfortable, but after 18 years as an MT, I've just gotten used to the stethoscope style or earbuds.

If you'd like to contact me, I'll give you an offer you can't refuse!

If that comes to pass with the hospital that I work for (my full-time job) I sure hope they switch us back to being paid by the hour, or better yet, I hope I will still have a job!
Hmmm, well
the fact that you have to continue to state over and over that you will be making so much money leads me to believe that you won't be making that much money. You must really not have a life if you are working all day to get all of your lines in and then you are on here all night, as well. Sorry for you. If you really seriously aren't no whining, which I doubt, I hope you too don't have children because you obviously are neglecting them as well.
Hmmm, where is your
husband? Better check, I think he is calling me from his cell phone because you are soooooo frigid.
Soo much for college... I thought that I was wasting my money. I spent 40,000 on that thing to get a job.
What I truly want:
1) My retired parents to have more income and be able to travel more;
2) My oldest son to learn happiness is a choice, not just the result of whatever life hands him;
3) My youngest son to keep the same motivation he has now and add a little more self-discipline to his direction;
4) My sisters and extended family to be satisfied and content with their lives and the energy to change whatever it takes to get there.
5) A photographic memory for myself. Hahaha

The list could go on but those are my top 5 and it is a rather personally indulgent list. Hahaha
I don't understand that either.  Odd.
I wonder if I might just be use to stiffer keyboards though.
Yeah, I don't know if I can agree with "just be glad it's video games" either. I tried to think of it that way for a long time, but it has just gone too far. Oh, I forgot to add that once he got off his computer so I could unhook the internet, he just sat there in his chair with a mad look on his face and watched me until I got off.

No, we have our own computers. We share the internet connection through a router though.

I really wouldn't mind if he played the game if it didn't cause so much problems in our household. He really needs to be a father to our children. I cannot work with our child screaming because she isn't getting any attention. He should really help out because I work about 14 hour or more days now.
I thought Katherine looked absolutely gorgeous in that dress; after all she is not a child and that was mild compared to how they dress in Hollywood! Maybe some people who are not big rock fans don't connect with Chris
but he is a way better singer than Taylor and Elliot, hands down...he aced that song and was amazing. I do like Elliot too but think it will be down to Chris and Katherine. Can't stand Paris or Taylor (gives me the creeps with those jerking movements)and glad Pickler is gone who had absolutely no talent and as the other poster said only lasted as long as she did because of the vote-for-the-worst website! All JMO. ; )
hmmm but if it were to get too
expensive for them wouldn't they just find editors who would be happy to do work for 2 or 3cpl? I just don't see how this would "flush" their profits.
Hmmm - then I don't like her either.
Oh well "So you think you can dance" starts Thursday.
no thankx
Hmmm, let's see!
Helping them with homework; my aunt did that with her daughter for years. Now she's in college and on her own and not doing all that great on her own. Waking your kid up personally; my mom did all my childhood life and to this day I have an extremely hard time getting up and am not real punctual and often late because of that. Paying kids for chores; teaching them that all good deeds deserve payment. I agree with Inquiring Minds 100%! To each his/her own though! :)
hmmm... this may be it!! Thanks!
That's odd. I think it only works if you have microsoft office, not just the basic. I can't remember though. It is a great system once you get it to work. :-)
The only rudeness I have read is from you. If you thought the first post was rude, you need thicker skin.

People, for the most part, are trying to be helpful. People also make mistakes so instead of jumping all over someone who did make a mistake AND apologized, why don't you get over it and move on?
I read through your entire post, which was very long, and it left me thinking a few things.

First of all you really should invest in seeing a doctor. Most hospitals will treat you, and bill you later. At which point in time, you can make payment arrangements. Get yourself taken care of. You sound like you are at your wits end. Well, when you hit rock bottom there's no where to go but up, right?

Then...get a job. A real job that pays you regularly. You don't have to work there for the rest of your life, but you do need to survive. Is it not possible for you to suffer through a regular job to pull yourself out of this misery? Heck...they might even offer you health insurance!

Another thing, I am about your same age, and I have no pity for people that don't want to help themselves. See, life is hard, really hard at times. No one said it would be easy did they? I work full-time nights at a 'regular job,' go to school, and have a family to take care of. There comes a time when you have to grow up and learn to take care of yourself. Sometimes that entails hard work and some suffering. There is no growing or maturing without a little strife. You can get through this. There is life beyond where you are. You have to want it, though. You can't just sit cooped up in your apartment investing your time in something that is obviously not working.

The answer for you is very simple and easy: If you don't like what you are doing and how you are living then *change* it. Start doing something different...or you'll keep getting the same results.


I am running into the exact same thing actually.  I won't get paid for MARCH'S work until mid May!  I am an IC and even at that I don't even submit an invoice.  The company pays me for what their client pays them for.  If you ask me, I very much prefer working for companies that pay right on time based on the exact invoice you submit. 

Hmmm, that's odd...
that's not at all what you said in your post above.

Perhaps if posts didn't start out as insulting or trying to get a rise out of people, there wouldn't be attacks. I guess I'm confused, but I don't understand what kind of helpful advice, motivation, positivity or friendliness you were looking for by a post saying why does everyone on here complain, makes me feel like suicide, find a new job, etc.

Maybe if you tried starting a positive thread, one that promotes friendliness or positivity, you'd get positive responses.
Hmmm .... look at it this way
If by saying 2 units of Pitocin, it is referring to it as a single dose, it would be WAS. Whereas, if it were referring to multiple doses, then it would be WERE.

Am I making sense? :)
Talk about sarcastic ...... ! Take it easy.
CMT but cant do ops? how did you pass?
