I haven't gotten any grief yet....

Posted By: typing4dollars on 2006-05-22
In Reply to: But don't you get grief for sending - sm

as these particular ESLs are supposedly the worst in the hospital and I am sure many other MTs are sending their hole-y reports to QA. I am supposed to keep my QA below a certain percent and I do that 99% of the time because I only get these ESLs maybe one day a week, so evidently since I haven't heard from "Big Brother", I guess my sending-stuff-to-QA percentage is within the guidelines. What get me is that when dictating these guys stink, but just wait until they have to turn around to talk to a colleague. Then, they can speak perfectly.... That just makes me crazy !!!!!

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
But don't you get grief for sending
too much to QA? I know I am only allowed a certain percentage, so I am still going back over the audio 2 or 3 times to try to stay within my allowed percentage (and why I have crap for production). However, I think it stinks that one could easily get a whole batch of dictations by the same nasty dictator and your sending-stuff-to-QA stats go down the dumper. And of course, the worse the dictator, the more he/she dictates and the longer they are, according to the MT Murphy's law!
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
with all the grief/strife in the world one wonders.SM

why anyone would call a dance contest lame....it's light, it's fun, people are dancing and trying to have and win $$ for charities.....and with 30-32 wars ongoing all over the world, people need some lightening up....and this contest is just FUN....

another naysayer in our midsts.........

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
From the sounds of it grief counseling may be in order -sm
My mom died 9/04 after 9 weeks in the hospital (as was recovering nicely too) so her death was actually quite unexpected. Considering how close we were I have handled it quite well (we talked on the phone almost every day and I visited at least 6 x a year). I never really cried though, don't know if that is good or not, yes I get teary, but I never broke down or anything. I just withdrew into myself I guess as part of me died that day. I had a rough patch in 02/05 that lasted about a month or so, but for my daughter's sake I had to pull myself out of my funk. I don't think I every really got to fully grieve though as then my dad met his girlfriend < 3 months after my mom died then got engaged 2 months later, then Jen got diagnosed with cancer, had surgery/chemo, my dad married 9 months after my mom died, etc. I can go days w/o thinking about my mom, though I loved her very much. So either I am in denial, cold-hearted, or just deal with things quickly. I don't believe you should dwell on things. Life keeps on going and there is nothing you can do about that but live your life the best you can. But if you are still so upset and cry a lot then I really think you should seek out a grief therapist so you can learn how to cope and move on. This doesn't mean you have to forget you dad by any means. I still "talk" to my mom though I have no grave to visit or anything as she donated her body to science so I have no clue where she actually is now but I like to think her spirit is here with me and that makes me feel good.
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???

give it some time and distance for their grief to subside a bit

then when things are calmed down, I'd have your hubby mention that it was very important to your son & I think she'd probably give it back in a heart beat.  I agree with how valuable it is for your son, but he has the visual and heart felt memories he will cherish forever.

I lost a child 25 yrs ago, problems & issues that came up during that immediate time compounded issues with my little sister and it took 23 yrs and the death of our dad to finally put it all to rest and reunite and heal.  I can never get back those 23 yrs I wasted not having my lil sis in my life because of my stubborness, it's just not worth it. 

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, 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.

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
Haven't actually done it yet, but...
I have been wanting to do it and had looked it to it several years ago.  I do believe that old concrete has to be etched first in order to open up the "pores."  I was looking at using a concrete "stain" I believe it was made by Behr brand and was sold at Home Depot.  It comes in lots of colors. It was my understanding that the etching and then the stain would basically allow the color to soak into the concrete rather than sit on top like paint and wouldn't have the problems with peeling.  However, unfortunately, I haven't tried it yet but just wanted to offer another suggestion for you to look into.  Good luck!
I haven't but my son did. sm

If you feel okay, it's probably a muscle or even an intestinal cramp.  If you start to feel sick, or even just lousy, or the pain intensifies and you start to feel feverish, you should spend the $100.00. 

My son was 16 and he was very, very sick. It came on in the middle of the night very quickly. He finally yelled to me at 5:00 in the morning because he couldn't get out of bed.  He said he thought he had food poisoning and had been vomiting all night and his stomach hurt really bad.  Just one look at him (greyish/green pallor) and I knew it was bad. We went right to the ER and the nurse came right out and got him as soon as the front desk person took one look at him. Paperwork was done later as he was prepped for surgery.

It wasn't a half hour before he was in surgery to remove his appendix that was about to burst. 

He was really sick. I had a friend who just had hers out. She didn't wait as long, but she really felt horrid.

I haven't gone through it or know anyone who has
the best. I hope the lump turns out not to be cancer.

take care.
I haven't gotten anything either.
still haven't gotten over
yummy, yummy, yummy
Haven't had one but....
I've been with several others who have had, conscious sedation is much less risky and each time the patient recovered extremely quickly, no discomfort or side effects.
I haven't seen anything less than
3-4 cpl and most are only offering 1-2 cpl. Maybe if you are lucky, you can get an hourly gig.
Who knows - you may be right. I haven't - sm
run two operating systems at the same time, but anything is possible these days! I do have duplicate other software that I run because I don't like what came with the PC. For example, my old Photoshop instead of Windows' version; two different spam blockers & firewalls, and I use an old external Iomega drive & Iomega software for burning CDs because the Windows one doesn't work half the time. One thing I've learned about computers over the years is you shouldn't always take "no" for an answer with them. In the PC world, "no" usually means "find another way to do it." ;D
I haven't seen much about them lately, but if you
check the company board you can find info there.  Doesn't appear to be very good though.
