Good luck - you will do just fine and feel great afterwards! nm

That is elementary my dear.
Corporate Lessons.

Lesson 1:

When the human body was first made, all the parts wanted to be " The Boss."

The brain said, " I should be Boss because I control the whole body's responses and functions."

The feet said, " We should be Boss as we carry the brain about and get him to where he wants to go."

The hands said, " We should be the Boss because we do all the work and earn all the money."

And so it went on and on with the heart, the lungs and the eyes until finally the asshole spoke up.

All the parts laughed at the idea of the asshole being the Boss. So the asshole went on strike, blocked itself up and refused to work.

Within a short time the eyes became crossed, the hands clenched, the feet twitched, the heart and lungs began to panic and the brain fevered.

Eventually they all decided that the asshole should be the Boss, so the motion was passed.

All the other parts did all the work while The Boss just sat and passed out the shit!

Moral: You don't need brains to be a Boss - any asshole will do.


Lesson 2:

A turkey was chatting with a bull.

"I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree," sighed the turkey, "but I haven't got the energy."

Bull : "Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings? They're packed with nutrients."

The turkey pecked at a lump of dung and found that it actually gave him enough strength to reach the first branch of the tree.

The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch.

Finally after a fortnight, there he was proudly perched at the top of the tree.

Soon he was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot the turkey out of the tree.

Moral: Bullshit might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there.


Lesson 3:

A crow was sitting on a tree, doing nothing all day.

A small rabbit saw the crow, and asked him,"Can I also sit like you and do nothing all day long?"

The crow answered: "Sure, why not."

So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the crow, and rested. All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.

Moral: To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up. !!!

Corporate Lessons

Sorry forgot this one!!!

A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold; the bird froze and fell to the ground in a large field. While it was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on it.
As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, it began to realize how warm it was.
The dung was actually thawing him out! He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy.
A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate. Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him!

The morals of this story are:
1) Not everyone who drops shit on you is your enemy.
2) Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend.
3) And when you're in deep shit, keep your mouth shut

LOL I don't know. I do know they transferred their corporate
helpdesk back to the U.S. because it comprises 90% of their sales. I think it was 90%. The home users have to put up with the offshores tech support. I bought a Dell, too, because I figured I could do my own tech support without buying anything extra or calling them. Shoot, $300 for a computer and printer. They had to have lost money on that deal, right? I don't know if that was right or wrong of me if I'm against offshoring, but I really needed a new computer.

Anyway, you might try Dell's online knowledge base to search for the answers to your issues. Do you think you'd be able to fix it yourself with detailed instructions? What kind of problem are you having? Maybe I can help.
I can hear it now in corporate...

Hey, did you guys hear about the Big Virus? Wait a minute - we could USE this! Yeah, thats it - the Big Virus ate up your work! Yeah, that's IT! That's what we'll tell 'em!

Well going up against corporate suits
is not such a simple thing.

As soon as the suits was $$ in transcription they descended on the trade and scarfed up a huge chunk of the work. That would be fine if the end result was fair pay and an improved product, but really it equates to some fat cat CEO reaping the benefits while the worker bees, well, work.

Solutions? Here's the hard truth: How many people are willing to walk away from jobs that pay (at least most) of the bills?

Not saying there isn't power in numbers BECAUSE THERE IS! but getting large numbers of people willing to walk the walk at the same time is not easy... just look at how easy it was for our government to ignore millions of patriots protesting this fake war (we knew it all along)...


Anyone know Frank's email at corporate?
I need to tell him a few things.
In response to the corporate minded
It's more like they are endeavoring to make up for their greedy management oriented mistakes of the past. The MTs are who make the money for the company as you seem to forget, when they are gone, there will be no company. The mass exodus has only begun.
its called corporate America

PC engineering, phone operators, telemarketers, anything you can telecommunicate is being offshored.  Its a very unbalanced economy right now.  Rich are richer, and there is less consumption as a whole by the middle class as we get poorer, notice how prices are rising?  Its more expensive to live here than anywhere and the wages are steadily dropping.  My mother had a great idea of collecting credit cards, since she gets a few of them a year, cashing out and moving to Mexico. 

Husband is a corporate attorney
He makes more than I do - obviously.

Its just corporate America in general, the higher ups

Thats why they hire minorities, they work cheap, do not complain, and work hard.  Americans are in trouble in regards to job stability because of how everything is computerized now.  I cannot get a live operator on the phone anymore and spend more time punching in the correct number code for my particular question.  Its so frustrating trying to understand someone with a thick heavy accent when you need instructions on how to do something immediately in regards to pc help.  Working for corporations sucks, its cold, unrewarding, and scary.  We all better find something to fall back on.  I hope to work for myself one of these days. 

That is just what Corporate America want us to believe. "Things could be worse." sm.

As an American citizen, I have a right to work, and I have a right to expect a fair wage.  I should not be expected to keep moving from one job to another to find a fair wage (anybody that has been an MT for long enough knows that this has been the scenario).  As an American citizen, I should not be expected to foot the bill of some CEO's plan to retire rich, at the expense of everybody else, nor fill the pockets of a bunch of greedy shareholders.   If you want to be a member of the working poor class, then so be it.  Just do not tell the rest of us that it is okay. 

Has anyone been able to speak with Corporate to see if they plan to look into Amherst. Did anyone
get any satisfaction.
My hubby is a corporate adversary trainer.sm

He makes a good salary and gets monthly bonuses as well as other perks.

Or a corporate restructuring to head off lawsuit awards.
I'm talking corporate restructuring as in filing a new DBA soon, anticipating
bankruptcy and restructuring under a different corporate name.  It's done all the time in the corporate world. 
Yes we are all in the same boat in Amherst and I suggest calling corporate about it to HR. I did and
I hope others did.
Yes in fact I have called Corporate 2 times and got a runaround as to what they are doing.
No, corporate greed is what sends work overseas.
The only reason offshoring is alive is because our fellow Americans are too cheap to pay a living wage. They want their companies to show a greater profit and stock to go up.

I am an excellent MT. However, I can't make squat for money in this field because every single company I get on with sticks me with their lousiest accounts. I've learned seven new accounts in the past month between a small MTSO and a national. That's how it works. You do your best, QA scores reflect it, and they give you their garbage that nobody else will do.
I've installed countless corporate networks...
This was my profession for years.  They are secure.  Wireless, wired, however.  They are secure.  More secure than residential by a long shot.  Static IP's, WEP's, encryption, etc.  It has nothing to do with it being a "public connection".  You or I cannot "grab" the wireless waves out of the air.  It has to do with the security set in place in the firewalls, modems, routers, etc.  Not trying to be a smarty, just letting you know from experience. 
Has anyone reported this situation with Amherst to corporate or dont they care either about what is
going on there.
Walmart is trying to save the consumer MONEY. It's not all about corporate greed.
Rubbermaid products are advertised. So the costs of doing business with Rubbermaid factor in advertising costs. Now I don't care what brand name of plastic container I buy if the quality is equal. So I buy Rubbermaid's competitor (I forget the name) cheaper because they don't advertise. I also think there are a lot of big executives at Rubbermaid who take a bigger profit each year which once again factors in the price of Rubbermaid.

With the economy as it is, gas prices soaring, interest rates up, taxes up, our pay going down (MQMT), I don't care to subsidize Rubbermaid's advertising budget or their CEOs salary. And I go to Walmart and buy the plastic container that is cheaper because they don't advertise.
Gloria, do not speak for me. I never said I wanted bennies, and other perks a corporate executive e
I simply want an MT job where I am fairly compensated for the work I do. I never asked for or expected the bennies and perks...just a fair wage with a good company. The only other thing I would like to hear from you is the name of your company so I can STAY AWAY FROM IT!

Whatever is on sale at 50-75% off the day after Halloween....sm
Target usually has the most "good stuff" candy on sale i.e. the Hershey bars, M&Ms, Snickers, etc.  Usually the day after Halloween it's 50% off and 2 days after Halloween it's 75% off.  I stock up on enough candy to last until Christmas, then after Christmas get enough to last until Valentine's Day, then after Valentine's Day I grab whatever I can because there's no major "candy events" for a while to get it cheap!

Partition of Sale

I wanted to get out of owing a house that I co-owned with a boyfriend after the relationship tanked.  He would not cooperate whatsoever.  Thus, I was being held hostage to a property I no longer wanted and I could not free up my credit to purchase a property on my own.  I got a free consult with an attorney.  I was told that I could file a Judgment for a Partition of Sale.  The court will then file a judgment to put the property up for sale when parties do not agree and divide the proceeds among the owners.  I could also have him pay legal fees too.  I informed him that it would be far cheaper for him to cooperate, and since he wanted to keep the house, he wouldn't be court-ordered to sell it.  After researching the matter himself, he followed through and refinanced the house on his own and settled with me without court and attorney fees.  I did a Google search and found that this applies in Arizona too.  http://www.azcentral.com/home/hb101/articles/0129combs29.html



More off, but Penneys is having bra sale, buy two,
Yard sale
The 4th would be okay if your area gets a lot of traffic. A lot of people "running around" on the holiday weekend. I have known people who did very well on holiday weekends.

Just to warn, clothes don't sell well. Toys, baby items, household items are good sellers. I like to price toward the lower end so that I get rid of it. Those who price high take the risk that the buyer won't bother to "haggle". But you should stand firm if you feel a price is fair, maybe give in if it is getting towards the end of the day.

Have a good one!!!
That's because we're always *on sale*. nm
Seems like everything in this country is for sale
nowadays. Property owned by people who aren't US citizens. Ancient west coast redwoods being cut up and sold to Japan for lumber. And of course good U.S. jobs. And the lesser jobs, the ones are taken by people who have sneaked over our borders. I wonder who is going to pay the country's taxes 20 years into the future.
I have one for sale still that is brand new...
I bought mine from Dictran in May but have never used it as I ended up taking another job that doesn't use this. I'm asking $85 if you are interested. You can also E-mail me.
There are workbooks for sale on
are these always $15, this is not a sale price?
Radio Shack rocks for the stuff I need. Especially when I can get memory chips for my digital camera dirt cheap. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND TO ALL GOOD NIGHT.
Anyone has a 9-pin footpedal you'd like to sale?
This company I was offered a job with requires a 9-pin serial port footpedal.  Thanks in advance.
KVM switch for sale
I have a KVM switch I'd be willing to sell for $20.  I think i paid $50 for it.  I used it when I had 4 different jobs and needed to keep some of the software separate.  It worked perfectly fine and saved me from having to move back and forth from one computer to the other.
Meanwhile, the AAMT officers et al are sunning on Waikiki as we speak..on the corporate charge card.
Corporate greed is a rampant disease that will end up killing the American middle class....sm
These people never have enough, there are no scruples, In God We Trust is just something printed on currency instead of being a moral principle carried down by our Founders...the French started a revolution over this. I hate all war and violence, but how do we stop global economy as being the tool which the corporate entities use to rape the middle class workers? Sorry for the rant, bad week....year!
Means probably getting ready for a sale....sm
That's what happened at Edix when they brought in Bill Keena. The company was sold within a year.

Six Sigma is a management style and philosophy. Check Google.
I know someone with a "Jump To Conclusions" Mat for sale
Having my first yard sale. Any suggestions?

It will be some time in July.  Any particular weekend that would be best?  Probably not around the 4th because people will be out of town, right?

Have lots of clothes and other stuff.  Anything that I haven't used in the last 6 weeks or that was not a gift is going.  No more clutter for me!

I've never had a yard sale before.  Is there anything I should know?  Oh, and I hate to haggle.  Should I price to high and take the first offer or just price low and stand firm (who me?).  I'm not looking to make a fortune.  I just want to get rid of my junk and have a little to show for it. 

Thanks for any suggestions.
