I'm from Rochester, NY
Being from Rochester NY
Been doing this since 1990, now in Rochester NY, typing Medquist (all along) and doing "doctors" from MO, mostly. some fun, huh?
Rochester doesn't.
All of the dictation in Mayo Rochester is handled either by transcriptionists in each department, or by a transcription department (where I worked as a QA) in an off-campus building.
An interesting article for Rochester, NY transcriptionists who might want a change. sm


I saw an interesting article on line from the local Rochester newspaper about captionists.  They are people who assist with deaf students in helping them take notes in class.

This is a brief side box from the article:

About the job

Those training to be C-Print captionists must type at least 60 wpm. Beginning in June, they'll take 10 weeks of online training and upon completion begin work in the fall. They'll earn $15.74 an hour and work a 35-hour week for 10 months. For more information about training, contact: AccessServices@ntid.rit.edu



Any info on Execuscribe from anyone who works there?
Has anyone heard of or worked for Execuscribe.
Has anyone heard of or worked for Execuscribe. Have not seen their name posted on any od the old archives.
I currently work for them and we are constantly running out of work.  yocardial infarction will have no work one moment and then there are dictations from 3 days ago.  Seems really inconsistent.  I do love ChartScript though.
St. Agnes High School, Rochester, NY, sadly no longer exists

Execuscribe On-Line Test Score
No, they didn't tell me what score was passing before I tested. They invited me to test based on my resume. I don't know about having to use a C-phone once hired but no I did not need one to test.
There was a story in the
21-year-old Mexican illegal whose citizenship was sped up so he could go to join the army because that was his dream. He died in Iraq. Funny, all of a sudden he was welcome in this country.

Yeah, and it's so easy working in the fields picking your vegetables so you don't have to pay more than a couple bucks a pound.

And those Vietnamese freeloaders....working 12 hours a day,7 days a week in their little markets and restaurants. Sheesh!
Okay, here's my story.
My Mom's middle name was Violet.   She died in Spring of 2003.  This year, guess what tiny little flowers are growing next to her headstone, not planted by me.  I looked around to see if there were any nearby, and there was one violet a little ways away, but not 3 or 4 like they were clustered right next to her headstone.   I know, the birds are responsible for it, but I really like to think she had something to do with it.   
My MQ story

I was hired by MQ in April for clinic work.  The clinic account was huge and always behind when I first started.  There were constant emails begging for people to work extra and on weekends.  Slowly, it started running out of work and they started slowly adding more and more accounts to my pool until I think I was up to around 20 (yes, 20).  Most of this work was ER notes.  I complained several times.  The ER notes were done by some of the worst dictators I've ever heard -- mostly American's, but sounding like they were eating while competing in the world's fastest talker competition.  I complained -- several times -- about no work, multiple accounts and the quality of dictators.  Finally, I received an insulting email from my supervisor telling me that I should be able to do this work.  I promptly replied that I could "do" this work, but that they did not pay me enough for the headache and resigned on the spot.  They really complained about everyone sending things to QA and QC, but with most of the accounts I was on, every report went to one or the other.  I'm not used to turning in reports filled with blanks and I and was not comfortable with the quality of work I was producing.  I'm certainly not the best Transcriptionist in the world, but I'm not the worst either and I actually care about what my work looks like.  With MQ I was lucky to make 100 lines an hour.  With my current job where I have been almost 2 years I make about 200-250 lines an hour and I also have gotten another part time job working for a local person where I make about 250-300 lines an hour.

I already had a full time transcription job with a smaller company I love and only went with MQ part time for tax purposes.  My experience was not a good one.  I personally would not work there again nor recommend employment there.  On a side note, an MT I used to work for locally went to MQ, she lasted a little over a year.  She referred someone who started 2 weeks before me and she lasted a little over 2 months.  These MTs left for basically the same reasons.  I can say that experiences will vary depending on what office you are at as will pay.  An MT I know was hired by a PA office at 7.5 cents a line for acute care (15 years acute care experience).  I was hired by the Dallas office at 9.25 a line for clinic (8 years clinic experience).  My base was actually 8.25.  I had to produce 6,000 lines in a pay period with 1600 of these lines done on the weekend to get the extra penny a line.

It's the same old story...
You can lead a horse to water.... There's planned parenthood, free clinics, and 3 dozen forms of birth control.  In a time of more ways to prevent unwanted pregnancy than ever, we have rampant unplanned pregnancies.  It boils down to taking responsibility, and you can only do so much.  There's a whole lot of partying and "hookin up" going on out there, and when that happens, the birth control goes out the window.
Is it better for us SE people or worse?
"A" story?

There's much more..do your own research!
My story!
Hello I wanted to tell you my story so you know it is not just you. I was thriving at the local hospital I had worked at for over 2 years having working my way into transcription and coding successfully. Then there was a boss that did not like me. I was finally at full time transcription and zooming along at it. The doctors were pleased, the administration was pleased, etc. The jobs were finally staying caught up. Well this woman was very very rude! A lot to tell but the basis was she told me that if I ever planned to work at home I would never make it because my 80-120 radiology jobs a day would not cut it (these were x-rays, CTs, MRIs, mammograms, CT-guidance, needle aspirations). I knew better but she still hurt my feelings by saying that. Nobody else except the combination of myself and two other girls, one old timer and one very new had ever been able to keep things caught up before and after I left either one. I got a work at home job and left there asap. Finally got my first radiology job after having worked at one national for 4 months and one a year. The second had a radiology opening and I am thriving like mad. I would love to find her and let her know a few things. Anyways, the moral is do not give up if you feel you can do it. Every company and every account is different. The first national company, account, and superviser were not for me and I strugged big time. This second company has been pretty good. My acute care was fine I just always loved radiology and am better at it. Some hate it. Keep going until you find your fit and I wish you the best of luck!! Don't let one person and/or company get you down. Keen on keeping on!!
Here's my story.
I worked in a doctor's office for many years and loved it. I would still be there except I now work at home which is better for me because I have children. There are some advertisements for Transcriptionist but like you said, not a lot. It may not hurt to start calling different offices. They have such a hard time finding transcriptionist, they may just be "making do". You could call and say you were interested in filling in when their regular transcriptionist was on vacation. That would get your foot in the door. I got my job the regular old way, I answered an ad. Good luck!
The story was (sm)

Letterman went on and on about wanting to be on Oprah's show.  Well, Oprah never called or took his calls.  Then she was reported as saying that she doesn't watch Dave's show and doesn't know what he is doing.  So Letterman finally laid off and didn't say much more about it because she never called.

So to him it probably was the event of the decade because he has been wanting to see her for so long!

Yes, it was touching.

Let me tell you a story.......
I worked for a very small MTSO, had two great accounts, no problem. This went on for several years, right up to the day she went off, fired several people, and threatened to fire me, also. I took that as my cue to leave said MTSO. I quit.

Several days later, she "needed" certain files that I had transcribed, which had already been sent to her and to the client. I had erased them from my computer. It was then, and still is MY computer. She told me point-blank that I had "no right to erase anything from that computer". Huh?????????

I suggested she contact her attorney, as I had done.

I never heard another word.

If it is your own property (computer), no one any way, any how, any where......can tell you what to do with it. Period.

Stand your ground and leave this company if they insist upon this policy. It is simply not right and it sure as heck is not legal.
Here's another story
A friend of mine had a contract with a local group of doctors and subbed some of her work out occasionally to me and another lady. The other lady didn't have a lot of experience, but had been subbing for her for over a year when all of a sudden she told her she had too many errors in her work and was not giving her any more. The lady got so upset by this that she wrote a letter to the doctor. The doctor in turn was so upset with the MT with the contract and wanted to know why she fired her and was concerned about getting sued and was just very upset that she had not even had a discussion with her or put her on probation or something. Maybe I should contact these docs adn apologize? It's not like I'm trying to get their business, just wanting to let them know I got fired and that I'm truly sorry they were unhappy. This lady doesn't even want to talk to me either by e-mail, messenger or phone. She is taying logged off of her messenger and won't answer e-mails at all. She is just hiding and avoiding this. I am not a confrontational person and have sent a nice e-mail to her, but she will not respond. Unbelievable. Maybe her docs will respond if I send them an apology.
More to the story...
If you want to hear more to the story, there were problems with TAT in the past. The fact of the matter is that when it occurred THIS PARTICULAR TIME, I was not fired on the spot, I was allowed to continue working for another week with geting work in on time, thinking everything was okay, not hearing a word that work would be ending and then at the beginning of the day today, told via e-mail that I was not needed any longer. She probably took that time to train someone else, I'm sure. I think that is so heartless and to not even face up to me or give me the courtesy of a phone call or a warning that my job was in danger. I hope this person can sleep at night.
You know I got a different story from them about
With the owner telling me one thing and the MT supe telling me something different, on the day I was supposed to do my training I emailed and canceled and declined employment with them. There has not been a lot of positives said about them since them. I'm glad I listed to my gut!
Here is my story......sm
I have been working at home for 16 years now, since my son was born. I have dealt with the strong urge to go to work outside of the home, even went on interviews and was offered many jobs; however, in the end, I turned down all of them. Reason: I chose to be a mom first and foremost. Secondly, why should I work out of the home when I can have the best of both worlds right here at home.

Granted, everyone's situation is different. I understand that.

It was my choice to stay home. My children are in their teens now. It is most important, for me, to be home when they get home from school and know exactly what they are up to, what friends they are with, etc. to try and keep them on the straight path to success and not get caught into the "wrong" crowd, which is so easy for teens.

The whole time I have been home, 16 years now, I have not regretted it for one minute. Did I think the grass was greener on the other side - Absolutely. In reality, it is not.

It all depends on what your priorities are and what type of life you will be happy with for you and your family. Only you can answer that from within.

Best of luck to you in whatever you decide. Remember, if it does not work out, there will be other opportunities in the future for whatever it is want to do. When one door closes, another opens.

have/had the same story - here's what I did
After grieving what could have been, moved out of the bedroom for about 3 weeks and refused toh ave relations - only way to get guys' attention. Then told him his inability to share his feelings was like trying to love a cigar-store Indian - if he is not human enough to have feelings, can't love him. He actually went to a counselor on his own. I refused to go with and said until he dealt with his feelings or lack thereof, would do no good to "air out" differences.  It's working, believe it or not. The last week he was very attentive to me and working on putting names on feelings and saying them out loud.
Well I can tell you a story........
I did QA for a service. Many MTs were horrendous. No such thing as QA checks or random evaluations, EVER, for years. Then they would give them great raises or worse promote some of these poor quality MTs to QA! I would sit back and watch, with my jaw dropping. Sometimes I even overheard conversations/comments about a particularly bad MT, like *she is excellent* or *she'd be great in QA*, lol. Why, because she simply did a lot of work and had many years in? A few times I tried to get involved and add my opinion but ultimately my advice was not taken so I began to keep my mouth shut and just observe the comedy show going on. It truly floored me. That is when I realized that this industry if full of incompetence and people often get promoted simply based on years in and the amount of work they do (even if it's crap). You have to wonder if before long, nobody in management is truly qualified. In my opinion, this is not just QA...this includes supervisors, managers, and on up. So there you have it. :)
Let me tell you another story
Years ago when I was younger, going to be married, mother shopped in store having birthday celebration, fill out card guessing ? in jar for prizes. She did, gay lady saw, got phone #, called us and made our life a living hello!! Called all hrs of the day, saying "hello honey!" and we kids and mother knew right away. Came home 1 day to find my mother and guy peeking out behind our hallway- detective mother had set up sting to catch this person. It eventually died but so many phone calls, gave us a heck of a time.
I saw that story too, but not on SNL
I read it on the Internet. It was said that they (two spiders, I think) had actually set up a home with a web and everything.

Mind telling us the kind of bugs in your patient's ear (since they really may not be the same patient and you are not giving identifying information)? Just curious.
You could have just given my story.....
Sad story about our
educational system. I was raised and educated in Australia. They have a great public education system and so expected even better here,

Sadly disappointed when I read correspondence being sent from the schools with misspelt words .. and from a SCHOOL! My young daughter was reprimanded by the teacher for innocently (she was about 6 at the time) correcting her.

Maybe posting this is a mistake. Don't want any "llove it or leave it" responses. I am a citizen and love this country but we need to do much better by our children. They deserve a sound educational system to allow them to survive in this competitive world.

My story

I was working for an endocrinology group and did a little transcription on the side to earn extra money.  A couple of years later, I was working as an RN for another doctor when my hubby became ill with a rare disease and needed full-time care.  When I resigned my position to care for him, the doctors approached and asked if I'd be interested in doing their transcription at home to earn a paycheck.  I jumped on the opportunity and have never looked back. 

I will say in the beginning, I earned more than I ever could have as an RN; however, with VR and outsourcing, the wages have steadily dropped in this job to the point that I'm starting to feel a struggle to stay afloat.  So, yes, it was easier years ago than it is now.

This is such a sad story

But deep down inside, you must know that you could not have saved her.  When people are going to suicide, they will find a way.  She made a choice.  It was her choice.  Yes, the therapist was an egomaniac and didn't listen as well as he should have, but I have a feeling it would not have helped. It may have delayed it by a day or two, but I don't think it would have prevented it.

I'm so sorry you carry this around with you.  I hope you find a way to really come to peace with it at some point.

here is my story

I struggle with the same problem, but I also have other factors that are causing my issues. I am battling swollen extremities due to my last trimester of pregnancy, but before the swelling began, I not only typed a lot but also knitted a bunch of stuff for the baby. Then swelling compacted the problem and I am unable to "heal."

My doctor told me to stop doing any activity that is aggravating the situation. Ha-ha. I quit everything but being an MT. I use ice packs a few times a day on my thumb joints, hand and thumb stretches, and range of motion exercises with my hands and thumbs. If it were safe I would take ibuprofen too. I bought some fingerless ergonomic gloves this weekend that keep your wrists in a proper straight position while allowing finger motion. They are for anyone who does any kind of repetitive motion. I think they are helping, but I have only used them for 2 days. They are available in most pharmacies and some craft stores. 

Good luck with your thumbs.

My story . . .
I couldn't find a job as an MA. I am still even certified (how does that work). Fast forward . . . I finally got hired - in reception - at a local hospital. As soon as their transcription department had an opening . . . I went for it and got hired. I have been doing it now for 5 years.
Sad story. I wonder why...(sm)
...they didn''t just drop this incompetent MTSO early in the game and go with one that was better rather than suffering through months and months of poor quality (and pay even more for you to fix things)?
She did not say she was an IC - that would be a different story -
That would be filing a schedule C for home business; if you are an employee, you do not file a schedule C, it goes in with your itemized deductions. Two different situations.
I'm sorry, is anybody buying this story? sm
part-time, 16,000 per pay period!!! Come on, I'm not buying this at all.
I read a story on that
They actually have to boil them alive, so they tie a string around their necks, and paws (so they cannot claw their way out) and dunk them in.  There was a picture of a cat waiting to go next.  He looked so cute and innocent, completely oblivious.  Its heartbreaking, what a difference between countries, I love my cat as my family and they boil them alive on other continents!
She isn't giving you the whole story on pay...
There are many different account levels. Each level pays a certain rate per line for transcription and per hour for training.

If she's at 6.5 cpl, she's on an account so easy you could do it in your sleep, literally.

Account levels go as high as just over 10 cpl as a base rate.

Spheris wants a certain level of knowledge whether you are new or not. Not all accounts have positions open at all times so you may well have 10 or 15 years experience but if the highest level account with an opening pays 7 cpl then that's what you get hired into. You can always bid off on other positions and even other platforms once you've passed 90 days.

I have 3 accounts...one I rarely type on. I switch myself back and forth on my other 2 accounts. One is easy and the other a little more difficult. While the easy account doesn't pay as much, I can do a lot more work on it with no effort so I make better money on it.

And, 127.5 lines per hour is how they base what you should be doing to get your lines in the minimum hours you can work for your status. Even at 127.5 lines for 20 hours a week as PT, you're making $8.28 an hour. That's NOT minimum wage. I agree, it isn't what I want/need to make (and I make much more than that), but you're statement that "...what you're talking about is not even minimum wage..." is completely wrong.

If you're going to give the story - get it right and give it all.
When I worked for a hospital I had put BM in my word Expander for bowel movement, but one day got confused and typed in BM for black male. So the sentence read, "The patient is a 50-year-old bowel movement." I didn't even proof it either, but m.d. was cool about it but remarked that was "pretty old for a bowel movement."
Yes, I am too. What's the story? Anyone know? This is the 4th company now that
I found this story on this guy
My short story
Somebody removed themselves from the picture before someone in the extended family tried something with me and if they had spoken up there is a chance I would not have that horrible memory now.  I yelled loud and clear so that no one else had to go through what I did.  I don't care how old he is, unless you are clearly mistaking his actions - which I doubt  - then something is wrong.   This is probably easier from you to step away but if you read or found out that he had tried this with a 7, 8, 16 or 20 year old or even someone else or he had with his daughters -- could you then live with yourself.  At least tell your mother the reason why and if she choses to put her head in the sand, so be it but you told someone.   If you have questions about what you feel or think is happening talk to someone but do something. 
Here's a link to the story (sm)
and I cannot believe that stupid idiot manager (the female) did this and DIDN'T KNOW??? Come on! Oh wait, let me pull that turnip out of my ear first. And they all are pleading not guilty? tsk tsk tsk.

That's the story on primetime's page

The REAL story

On July 16th, 2005 Dwayne Schimke, ebay user ‘Turnedtwo’ contacted me about a bike I was selling on eBay. He emailed saying that he wanted to come to my home and pick up the bike. I have clearly stated in all of my auctions that I do not allow people to pick up items. He admits himself that he ‘didn’t read the whole auction’ After a few emails were exchanged I told him I had blocked him from bidding, and asked him not to email me anymore. He was offended that I forbid him to bid on my auction, and continued to email me several more times after I had asked him to stop emailing me. Then I called his home, I used some choice words and told him to stop emailing me.

After that, he did not email me anymore and I did not email him or call him anymore. I thought this was the end of it. Then a few months later Bret Shipp from WFAA shows up at my home and starts asking questions about the confrontation and about Cindy


Once I heard the name Cindy Burleson, it became clear why the reporter was there.

Cindy Burleson and Lisa Taylor have been harassing me and my family for almost two years now. She goes by eBay user IDs : lavinder17@hotmail.com , fireyredhead1960, cindysilver2004, curtain_climbers, officerfredfw

They have done everything they can think of to ruin my business, my reputation, and basically my life. They have accused me of anything they could think of, and have reported me to anyone they could come up with in an attempt to reek some sort of revenge against me and have me kicked off of eBay.

I was first contacted by Cindy Burleson in Feb. 2004. She had won one of my auctions for $1.50. She told me she was going to my house and pick up the item. I told her I do not let anyone from the internet come to my house. She insisted that she knew where I lived, and she was going to come over. She got really mad that I refused to allow her in my home. She began accusing me of bidding on my own auctions. The auction had started for $1, so she was accusing me of committing fraud to gain 50 cents ! She reported this to eBay, and emailed my customers with this ridiculous claim.

She then started calling me, and emailing obsessively, then she got her daughter, her boyfriend, and her friends to email me. I have received well over 1,000 emails from her and her friends/family. I got over 500 from them in one day alone. I did call her quite a few times to try to get her to stop, I threatened legal action, she just kept emailing and calling. I gave up, and stopped responding to her harassment in February 2004 and changed my phone number to stop her calls. That is when the real horror began. She is on a mission to do everything she can to effect my life, my business, and my family.

She took one of my emails to her and changed it to say that I was coming to kill her. She sent it to eBay so that they would cancel my account. I had a copy of the original email with the time, date, and ID numbers. I was able to prove to eBay that I did not do this, and they eventually reinstated my account. Meanwhile I was suspended for 30 days with no income because of this lie.

After all of these false allegations from Cindy and her daughter I began to suspect they were the ones up to no good on eBay, so I started to research her accounts and I found out Cindy would list items (such as Tiffany jewelry) and Lisa would bid against other bidders on the items to drive the price up! She had accused me of this when her and her daughter were the ones really doing it ! I showed eBay and eBay suspended the accounts. Neither Cindy Burleson or Lisa Taylor have been allowed on eBay since that time.

Cindy and Lisa both knew it was me who reported them and it only fueled their hatred towards me. Needless to say the story did not end there.

She handed out my home address and phone number to everyone she knows. They then started calling and driving by my house (then would call and/or email to say they had driven by) I filed a police report with the Johnson County Sheriff after they came by late one night in May 2004.  I thought it would end after that but the worst was yet to come.

The 10news story states I was arrested for "harassment" and shows the mug shot from that ‘most recent’ arrest. The only reason I was arrested for harassment was because on 3-15-2004 Cindy Burleson filed a false police report against me with the Grand Prairie Texas police department. Apparently her story did not hold water, so action was not taken by the police. The following week 3-22-2004, Lisa goes back to Grand Prairie Texas police department and tells them a different story (someone must have told them their first report did not do it and what they would have to say in order for the Grand Prairie police to take action). A warrant was issued for me after the second report. I obtained copies of the 2 conflicting police reports and there is absolutely no mention of any ‘death threat’ in either of the 2 reports. In fact the reports say I had called 5 times, not the 30-40 she is claiming now. The strangest part of the 2 conflicting reports is that they were both taken by the same police officer. This is a matter of public record and can be verified by anyone through the Grand Prairie Police Department.

Now I ask you, if you were the police officer who took the initial report and knew full well it was false, why would you accept a second report with a different story from the same 2 people and allow them to use different names and addresses, but the same phone numbers ? Not to mention the fact that neither Cindy, her daughter, nor I resided in or around Grand Prairie at all.

Bret Shipp of WFAA was advised of all of this, but he made absolutely no mention of these facts I provided him with in the story they did on me. I guess the truth did not make for a ‘juicy’ story in Bret’s eyes.

I had no idea I even had a warrant for this until the night I was pulled over in my hometown of Cleburne a couple days after Christmas. I spent 5 days (including New Years Eve!) in jail before I could come up with the $5,000 bond they put on me ! Once the DA looked into the matter my bond was refunded in full and no charges were filed. I still spent 5 days in jail because of this woman's lies !

She has continued to harass me and my family. She said that she has been ‘terrorized’ but I have not emailed, called or initiated any contact with her since Feb. 2004. She and her daughter have continued this for almost 2 years now. Every so often I get some kind of strange email message from her. She tells me she likes my house, my car, my truck, and my wife. She has sent emails to my wife stating she has had sex with me in an effort to have my wife think I cheated on her. Both her and her daughter send me emails asking if I am having a nice day and that they love me, stuff like hugs and kisses and such. She even ran a criminal background check on me, got all of my personal information, then emailed to tell me she had this information. She emailed me in July 2005 saying she had driven by my house and saw me smoking in the front yard. She told me how ‘white trash’ she thought that was.

Now I ask you, if someone is harassing and ‘terrorizing’ you, why on earth would you be emailing them to antagonize them and drive by their home which is more than an hour away?

Cindy was frustrated that I was not responding to her emails and phone calls and proceeded to involve the Media and tell them the same bogus story she told eBay about me threatening her life. In fact, I found out about this whole ‘Ebay Bully’ story from HER!! She emailed me to show me what she had done.

After the 10news story aired I started receiving many emails from irate eBay users cussing me out left and right. I was lead into numerous chat forums and discussion boards  which were discussing this ‘Ebay Bully’ story and even going as far as posting satellite images of my neighborhood and specifically pointing out my house on the image! Then eBay canceled my accounts telling me I had become a "legal liability" to them, and they could not allow me to conduct business on their site. This entire ordeal has become an ongoing nightmare from which I cannot seem to wake up.

I am an honest small business owner, just trying to make a living and take care of my home and family. I have been selling on eBay for 7 years. I have 1000’s of happy customers. It is unfortunate that I have lost my sole source of income due to a couple of persistent people with nothing better to do than to come up with ways to destroy my life. I now have been put out of business, and have no way to support myself or my family.

I have suffered loss of wages, false imprisonment, harassment, defamation of character, and now public humiliation at the hands of Cindy and her clan. I honestly cannot believe something like this could happen over a $1.50 auction. If it had not happened to me I still would not believe it.

The scariest part of this whole ordeal is that I have come to realize that Cindy Burleson is not going to stop. She is obsessed with me, and has made it her life’s mission to harass me and my family. If it happened to me, it could happen to anyone out there.

Story about cars

My ex and I were divorced when my son was 11.  We lived in the country so in order for my son to even get a job, he needed a vehicle.  I bought him a used truck for about $2,000 which was all I could afford.  It was a stick and he had a lot of trouble driving it.  He was responsible for the gas and the insurance.  When he graduated from high school, his dad gave him a card with a professionally made gift certificate in it that said "Good for one vehicle of choice."  He even had it notorized and signed by an employee of a car dealer.  He gave him the card at his graduation party in front of everyone so he (the dad) could look important.  After the party, he called my son to tell him that that did not mean he could go out and buy a Corvette or anything like that.  To make a long story short, when it came time for my son to get his car, he wasn't allowed to pick anything that he wanted, his dad decided on the vehicle, color, extras etc.   I do not think we owe are kids a car though, just could not help sharing my story.
