him for harassment.  I'm pretty sure he would not have handed the title over like that without his money.  If she owed him money, where is his proof? receipts showing balance due? Please do not hand over money to someone who may well be a heartless opportunist.

I'm very sorry for your loss.  Be well.

Well that is real mature, calling me a rimrod. Why the name calling?
I am not telling everyone to leave this site. I gave info about MTSTars.net to let us, who have been on this site MTStars.com for many years to make up their own minds. YESTERDAY, I never got a straight answer about the owner of this board and now I know, but I was in the middle of asking questions earlier and my posts kept getting deleted. I was not calling anyone names, like YOU have and I am not insuling anyone like YOU have. NOT offshoring? Well he is from Pakistan am I right? I still do not know the truth. Can you supply me with more information about Dr. Ahmed?
But YOU are the one doing all the name calling
She simply asked you to knock it off....as so many of us would like to echo.  Get over yourself and quit knocking everyone who posts on the board.  There are some of us who would like to be informed and knowledgeable about our sister MTs and our industry as a whole.  If you are not one of them, don't waste your time or our time by coming to this board at all, okay?  Your whining is annoying
Hey, who is this guy calling old! How
Name calling
Name Calling or Substitutions of Names or Moral Labels:

This technique attempts to arouse prejudices in an audience by labeling the object of the propaganda campaign as something the target audience fears, hates, loathes, or finds undesirable.

Dangers inherent in name calling: In its extreme form, name calling may indicate that the propagandist has lost his sense of proportion or IS UNABLE TO CONDUCT A POSITIVE CAMPAIGN INTELLIGENTLY.

Before using this technique, the propagandist must weigh the benefits against the possible harmful results.
Have you tried calling?
I know when I had A problem they were able to answer my questions. Have you tried calling them? :)
calling you?
they say that girls in the trailer park go round the outside, round the outside.  I wouldn't be bragging about servicing the neighborhood's husbands. 
No need for name-calling here.
The tone of this chain is not malicious nor judgemental.  Please don't come on here carelessly calling people names.  This woman had a life or death situation on her hands and handled it the best way she could.  She came here to help another human being in trouble by giving her valuable first-hand information.  In other threads, this malicious tone may be okay, but not here, okay?  Please just stay away if you can't bear the comments, okay?  These people are hurt enough already.  Thank you.
OK without the name calling....sorry
So do you think a nationalized health plan is a good thing for this country?
No name-calling, please. NM
What does name calling accomplish. It seems like you and another
poster calling a person names is no better than the cherry picker.
Why the name calling? You are sad. The comment sm
was made because he was for spheris and the outsouring they do, and yes they don't advertise jobs here because they outsoure. You are the one that needs to do some soul seardhing and grow up.
I don't think ANY of the name-calling or slurs is okay.

It seems like as soon as someone posts something against the "prevailing opinion," it's okay to call names and make all kinds of nasty remarks about them personally.  Not just in this topic, but in many others.  There seems to be an attitude of "they said something bad first, so it's okay to say the most hateful and hurtful thing I can think of."

I disagree with your post above, but I certainly wouldn't call you a name or imply that you are deficient, lacking, or stupid in some way for having that opinion.

I don't personally think the "single mother" is relevant to the topic at all.  It's a bad thing to have happened REGARDLESS of the person's age, marital status, or number of children, but I also don't think it's EXTRA bad because she's a single mother - and I don't think that's how she meant it.

? about "cold calling."

For those of you who have acquired accts through cold calling, what do you suggesting saying?  I did get one account this way, but cant remember how I managed.  Any tips appreciated!



Florida girl!

who's whining here besides you. i'm calling

re: Susie-LD Calling
This is true--we were all told to switch to a LD carrier by our transcription company to use for dictation and many of us were contacted by the phone company withing 4 to 5 months of doing this and told that we could not use it for business purposes. They actually called the numbers and knew that we were calling various places for dictation so some of use were switched back to using the 800 numbers
You are calling me perverted
when you come on this board with all of this stupid, juvenile crap. You really need to grow up.
Who are you calling stupid?
Well, if they are soooo stupid, explain how they are the largest transcription company in the US?

Perhaps you know something about the packet that we don't, because in case you didn't know this - NO ONE GOT THEIR PACKET YET! DUH - Talk about stupid - look in the mirror.

How do YOU know so much, huh?

PS - While looking in the mirror, go brush those yellow-stained teeth, comb that nasty wirey, brillo-pad hair, squeeze some of this nasty whiteheads, and get a face lift - because ain't no one want someone like you working for them!
I agree with you about calling 911. sm

Have it checked out.

Here's what fortunately happened to my stubborn sister.

She just happened to luck out because she was in a room full of people at a big birthday bash for a friend. She didn't feel good, a bit of a nagging headache, but thought it was no big deal until her head started to ache so bad that she dropped into a chair. She was about 5 blocks from the hospital at the time and someone called rescue. She had a brain aneurysm rupture, but she made it. After a month in the hospital she is "normal" with only a slight problem with short term memory.

The "moral" of this story is that if my stubborn sister had been home by herself, thinking, "maybe something is wrong" she would have taken an aspirin and went to lie down.

Don't mess with chest pain. Better to find out that you've pulled a muscle or something.

"I am trying to tell him he needs to go to the ER." This is a quote from OP who is now calling
is calling, and then my phone co....sm
My phone company went and put voicemail on my line when I got DSL (didn't ask for voicemail) so now I use that voicemail as my secretary.  I can first *see* who is calling on caller ID and then NOT take the call, and they get thrown into voicemail.  After working hours, I call them back.  If it is an emergency, I CAN take the call.  It has helped me tremendously.  If they leave no message, they never get a call back.  *LOL*  (No message left on voicemail to me merely equates to *not important*!!) 
I know its hard! I have one calling me and
another poster names. Well, actually calling me the name I call myself! ha! But I think the insult is supposed to be that no one else will hire me!! Isn't that just so illogical? Its unreal. I know its hard - sometimes one is afraid that these ignoramus types will think if they get the last word its cause they sure made their point! But we all have to realize that its just not to feed them - don't feed the trolls! Don't feed the trolls...
Have you tried calling the pound?
Wonder what they'd do with the goat?

I was visiting my MIL this week, and there were three beagles running around her yard. They kept coming up on her porch, so I led them out to the road. They followed me quite happily. Then somebody drove up in a truck and just observed us. I wandered over to ask if he was missing any beagles, and he was the dog catcher! He had been called about FOUR beagles. I just told him they weren't mine, but they sure were friendly! He asked if they'd come to me when called, and I said SURE! But then I left him to call the dogs himself, LOL. I can't help it if dogs don't like him. :oD
calling card
I used mine when I was out of town, and my minutes started as soon as I was connected to the dictation system. I diconnected in between reports when I proofread. It was cumbersome to do that, but saved some of my minutes.
Calling all ICs and subcontractors

I'm thinking of switching to an IC. Tell me the absolute best thing about being an IC/subcontractor and the absolute worst thing.


Calling Delaware MTs...

There are two of us here in Delaware so far that would like to get together and have lunch.  We are planning on meeting at the Ruby Tuesdays in Middletown (Rt. 299) at 12 noon on Tuesday, April 3rd.  We would love to have others come and have a nice day out.         

Try calling Dictaphone and ask.
Cold calling sm

Has anybody used cold calling to get their own accounts? If so, can you give me advice on how to go about doing this?

I'm also marketing with direct mail, etc., but would like to do some cold calling.  I heard it works.


Now see THATs when I'd be calling the cops
if they are definitely trying to turn the knob - not just jostling it when trying to leave a hanger.

No different than calling an MT a pig. Not polite
No hypocrite here. Just calling it as it is.
How about calling H.R. and requesting an
If the company refuses, they could be setting themselves up for having to pay worker's comp. if you are injured on the job by the chair and can't work. The price of an ergonomically correct chair is small in comparison.
who you calling "wong"? that's not my name..lol nm
Who are you calling mary?
I AM NOT MARY!   There you go again, thinking you are so darn smart.  Well, you got the wrong person this time.
well, now I know why you are a bitter, name-calling person.
nuff said
Oh, okay. So if we're really calling things for what they are....
you must be in luck today! I don't use the language it takes to call you what you are! We CAN beat around the bush though -- thy Queen of the Canine Females. ROFL
Why are you calling prople liars
I noticed you were calling people liars farther down on this page as well as hear. Why would you do that. It just causes problems. Can't you accept other people doing well. You are in one part of the country only. That does not mean you know what everyone in the whole country makes. Can't you realize that or are you a typical New Yorker who thinks that the whole world revolves around New York and nothing else matters. Please let people talk about the questions that are asked without calling them liars.
No on is an idiot and you should be ashamed of yourself for calling anyone that. nm
They are calling me on all sorts of mistakes
formating, headings (they say things like "use your best judgement" and then say you did it wrong), abbreviations, for some rules they follow AAMT and some they dont. I feel like I will never get it right.
I'm calling Terminix tomorrow....
I found another one last night, making that 4 in less than a week. Yuck! Funny thing is, the one I found last night was really slow and sickly. My BF thinks it's because the bathroom was cool because the air was on, so I told him let's freeze them out! lol Anyway, I'm calling for pest control. I can't take em.
If you meet the criteria for an IC, they are right. If you do not, they are just calling you that
Use an unlimited calling plan
I used to rerecord for 2 years with an old Dictaphone transcriber (standard cassette) that had a telephone record option, and the sound quality was crystal clear. However, that is an older model. When I rerecord using the cables, it has a hissing sound. With the unlimited long distance phone plans avaiable now, it is a lot cheaper and faster to go this route. Besides, using the C-phone foot pedal is a lot easier than working a transcriber pedal, and you will be able to transcribe faster. No more constant backspacing with the pedal because the C-phone stops where you left off. Also, you cannot beat the sound quality any more. Good luck!
How you get aorund debtors calling you
You can start off by PAYING your bills and duh, guess what no calls for this. On the other hand I had someone to call me and started off I had entered and won a contest. They were stopped right then and I said that is a lie, I have not even entered a contest, so then they tried to talk on faster to well if you had entered 1-saw such deception from the first I said no thanks and hung up. I have absolutely no debtors calling or dunning me for any money owed.
They aren't calling the doctor a pig.
Just saying the doc snorts like one. Big difference.
try calling the tech at kinesis
when i got my board, i called and asked some questions and they were very helpful--also sent lengthy e/mail instructions when i had problems figuring things out.
U calling me deluded and demented???
Try calling local RadioShack
See my post above. I would just call if you have a RadioShack near you or try calling the 800 number if they have one? Hope this helps! Happy holidays!!!
I believe calling machines 'transcribers' is yet
(now AHDI, of course). Now there's a little gang of crooks I want NO part of.
You don't think calling someone a liar is hateful? lol
calling it like it is does not make me a bully

It makes me a realist with enough courage to speak the truth.  Ask anyone in management, anyone responsible for the end product or bottom line, whether it is in MT or any other field, and you will hear the same thing.  When a person does not care about what they are doing and they do not take measures to change their situation, they are causing the damage to themselves.  Ask any mental health caregiver and you will hear the same thing.  When it becomes uncomfortable enough, you will do something different.  If you don't, then you must accept the responsibility for your own unhappiness.

I am not blind to the fact that there are misuses by QA people, no more than with MTs who want to whine about being picked on righteously or wrongly.  What i do say is this:  If you do not care about what you do, change your situation.  I can sugarcoat that or say it blunty, but the meaning is unaltered.  You can agree or disagree and still it does not change the message.  If you don't like it, do something about it (and this part I added because I just like it) stop whining about it.  The rest of us have more important issues in life to be concerned about.

If you're calling me an idiot, you must be one of the ones I'm talking about.
The question you are asking is a very friendly way of calling on all CHERRYPICKERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! sm
doing work that other people either can't or won't do. You should learn just like the rest of us, how to do it all. Take it or leave it. Do them all or do none, so the rest of us won't get cheated out of "easy" reports too!

I know that at my co. you are asked what you can and cannot do. That's a joke! They move me around because I can do it all! Of course I get stuck doing crap because all the easy stuff is taken. Now, come on, is that fair? I don't think so!

so there! You heard a mouthful about one of my biggest pet peeves!
