I hope he doesn't get voted back in either because worse than Eric

is CRAZY Ivette. I LOVE Howie and want him to win. Nobody else but Howie has entertained me on this show. So cute and funny when he pretended he was going to kiss Beau. W/O Howie, I can't watch it even if Kaysar comes back. Don't like that entire Cappy groupie scene. Do you think CBS will bring back a firefighter hero instead of an Iraq guy for ratings though? I know we are supposed to decide but I doubt that is true in the end.

Let's hope the car doesn't come back...
with every hidden nook and cranny filled with drugs! Your sis and BIL have a screw loose to let allow a slacker child, who happens to be an adult, do what he wants with a car they pay for. JMHO, so don't bother bashing me, it won't change my mind!
Kaysar has a brain and Eric doesn't. 82%! That's a whole lot of people who think different
Eric has short guy syndrome.
well being more anti-eric or cappy, i would prefer kaysar to come back but not to win.
I really would like Howie to win as he is the most entertaining. So cute and so funny.
Big Brother fans. Whose going to be voted back in the house?

This is absolutely the worst reality show ever and I am mesmerized by it.

I know because we are back to the SAME argument but worse this time...
We have spoken today briefly. He is furious. He is saying everything is my fault, etc. I just told him I am tired of the bickering back and forth, that it is both our faults, and if he wants to do the bills he can have them - but I reminded him last time he was offered this but did not look at the bills one single time. What can I do? Nothing I don't think.
Just hope he doesn't end up getting her pregnant!
Then she'll have him for the next 18 years whether he wises up or not.
I hope that doesn't happen to me...

and was told they would still have work for me afterwards...I really like this new place and am only working for them right now. 

Do you think you can e-mail me initials or a hint to who did that, so I know to stay away? Were you just one day locked out of the system or just no work in your general work pool? That's craziness on their part. Talk about feeling used.

...feeling a little nervous now.

hope this doesn't happen to you
Our company decided not to do direct deposit any longer because of Indymac. 
Hope this doesn't get pulled but try this link
it started with 13,000 abbreviations.

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!
just hope he doesn't start a new trend--ewww!
I can't stand it if I accidentally forget to put mine on. I can usually tell pretty quickly if I do. Just not comfortable to me (or anyone else around probably).
I hope that student doesn't read this board. sm

I don't think this was a good place to look for a laugh at a student's expense, even though I suspect you weren't intending to be mean or condescending. We were all there once.

After 30 years in this business, much of it in QA and QA management, I've gone back to transcription and I am still learning things from my QA people. Humiliating at times, yes! But its all a learning process.

Oh my gosh, poor you! Hope he doesn't talk too long!

Hope the admin comes back soon
Hope you called HR back. (nm)
hope they bring more back....
certainly going back to college doesn't protect from outsourcing..
one of the first things that went to India was accounting...
I sincerely hope that you are correct in that we will jobs coming back to the states, but I won't
I realize that India is a third-world country and it is a small percentage of Indian workers who are benefiting from the offshoring of American MT jobs and it may be only a small percentage of jobs been offshored, but the impact of this small percentage to the entire industry of medical transcription is tremendous.  It has lowered the standard wage for the American medical transcriptionist.  How can an American MT compete with 3 or 4 cpl?  By accepting only a little more per line than the Indians or by taking jobs editing the Indian MTs work for 3 or 4 cpl.  Either way, we lose.  We make less than we did 10 or 20 years ago and that's progress?!?! 
Hello. Does anyone have suggestions as to a good playback program I can use with a USB foot pedal? This kind of software was not required with my last job, but I just took a new job and now need it. Is there a way I can use my pedal with something like RealPlayer for free? I'm hoping not to have to spend a lot of money. Thanks!
Now see, my pick would be Eric Foreman!


I call what Eric has little dude blues!
Worse. Far, FAR worse. (no mssg)
He was voted off (nm)
I voted for Kaysar also.
There is something wrong with all those people who are hooked on Eric in the house-like a cult or something.  I didn't think there was anything special about him-in fact I thought he was rather bossy and daddy-like, trying to tell everyone what to do.  I like Kaysar and I don't really think he was going to hit Ivette or anything, she basically acused him of some harsh things and sort of came at him like a man would so he reacted like a man and she deserved it I thought. 
I don't think it was the Christianity that got her voted off. I
really believed she had an off night with that country song. My DH thought I was nuts. I wish I had recorded Tuesday night when I told him after the show that my bottom 3 were Taylor, Bucky and Mandisa. Bucky lacks verbal articulation to make it. Mandisa and Taylor both just had a bad night, in my opinion. Of course, you will notice that of my bottom 3 only 1 was right. I really liked her too and can't wait for her CD.
I voted for Kaysar too--way cute!!!..nm
Glad Brenna got voted off ! - NM
America voted and you are SAFE!
Hooray for Taylor baby!!!!!
Good Luck! I just voted for ya...!
Let us know when we can hear/see the singing videos!
Voted, good luck to her.

Voted...good luck to your sis...nm
voted; said the other 2 are grooming places. I'd like to have a...
I voted too...Good luck! NM
I voted, good luck. nm
That's 1 reason why I voted for Obama -
stay in this business is if the tax breaks are ended and the loopholes closed for companies that outsource what used to be good American jobs. Ending offshoring entirely would be nice, but I doubt it'll happen. But it should cost less for companies to hire American workers at a decent, livable wage, than it does to send it offshore. Offshoring should be something they do in a pinch, not as a standard practice. Yeah, so what if they're making more money the way they're doing it now. Doesn't make it right. They're greedy and they're un-American when they put thousands of hard-working American MT's in the poorhouse, or out of a job.
I've become disillusioned with the prez myself and I voted for him... SM
TWICE!!!  Now I just feel like I voted myself out of a job.
For your information, I voted for Obama already last week, but..
I don't know what politics has to do with my post. I only posted that I greatly increased my personal line rate per hour with sitting my butt down and actually doing my work and not finding other little things to do.

Yes, there are days when I want to pull my hair out with my ESLs and there are days when everything flows just fine. I am in the same boat as everyone else as an MT. And the things you are mentioning are beyond your control - I was increasing my line count with the one thing that is within my control - staying seated and typing.
Oh, for cripes' sake. I just voted Thumbs Down
I guess you have to vote Thumbs Up to get the 10 votes to have it removed (Reason drop-down: Solicitation of business, or something like that ... I can't vote again now to see what it was)
I voted for Kaysar...but didn't like how he was ready to clobber (SM)
Ivette once...sorta gave me the chills. I liked Kaysar the best out of the three though. It should be interesting tonight.

I voted on both of Chris' numbers and got his voice both times.
Voted for Sniffles and Friends..Good luck !..nm
15-y/o dtr. was voted Regional MVP of her entire softball league. She pitches. !!!
I hope this applies to companies like Medquist. I hope there
isn't a way they can get around it. I REALLY hope.
Why are YOU attacking HER? Just because she doesn't want kids, doesn't mean she needs a psychi
With short arms, I need chair with shallow seat, good back support and high back. Want arm rests
OK! I'm glad you're back down here. Now don't go back up there and read those evil posts ag
Okay? But I have to leave you now, sadly. Thousands of noble dictating doctors are anxiously awaiting my help with their "dictations"....They're all loading up on chips, drinking lots of soda so they can burp, and then have to go to the bathroom...You know the routine! Off I go to earn some pennies!! But, truly, I am thankful that I have a job!
PS.. It apparently worked..I heard back and already submitted the paperwork back.

I'm not sure how many people they are hiring but you shouldn't stress too hard over it. Do the best you can.

got one even worse...
18 minutes of dictation = 42 lines!  After he spelled out half of the report for me and then said uh, uh, uh between every word, I wanted to scream.
It could be worse, but
MTs are hard to come by, especially good ones. Take a look at the jobs offerings, you don't have to sit back and take it. I would suggest you go turn on the news for a while and picture yourself in someone else's shoes. You have no reason to complain because you have options.
Believe me..it gets worse..(sm)
I live in Kansas...and top-out pay for the hospital here in this rinky dink town is $8.46 an hour....yes ladies and gents...clean up the coffee you just spit all over your screen...I said $8.46 an hour.  I have to work for a national to get more competetive pay because it's sure not going to come from this area! 
Yes, she is usually MUCH worse
