Kind of ashamed to admit I threw daughter's card away

Posted By: chopped liver on 2006-05-15
In Reply to: Mother's Day - MTqueenB

I know some will call me petty. We haven't ever had the best relationship because she has been a difficult kid since grade school. Just really, really hard to deal with and nasty much of the time. I keep trying and trying and trying and trying. I help her out financially when I can, watch the baby every day while I'm trying to work, too.  I had tears picking out a card for her, and I put some money in there with a little note to treat herself. Yes, I took the money out and tossed the card. I know it sounds harsh, but I feel like I keep putting forth the effort and barely get a thank you in return. Instead, I get a "what's your problem?" Now my son..I can deal with. At least he treats me with some kindness and he tries.

Oddly enough, if I don't use my bank card as a credit card in the billing cycle, I get charged fo
Debit card. They've got the credit card logo on them, so they
can be used anywhere a credit card can be used.
I used to send a card and gift card to my direct supervisor, but that's it. sm
She was the only one who knew me as more than an employee number, and the only one I had any respect for.
Maybe they just threw everyone off
and no one else to post. BTDT.
Dang!! I Just Threw One Away!!
I just had mine croak a couple of months ago and threw it away. I never thought about keeping it to use for spare parts. I had a heck of a time finding one just like it. I finally ended up ordering it from Amazon because the ones at Staples are the newer model with the humongous wrist wrests.

So sorry. I hope you get it up and running again. I absolutely love mine.

What do you think threw you, changes in puncuation, etc. according to BOS??nm
She just threw that out there to shut us up, I think
She posts here quite frequently, mostly to whine about her husband, stepson, MIL,and everything else. I don't believe she's really an intentional troll at all, just a complete moron who was trying to dig her way out of the sh*tstorm she started with this gem of a post.
same thing happened to me; i threw a fit with them. sm
i ended up getting my 4th installation under my initial purchase registration # but they did inform me if it happens again, i will have to purchase.  i refuse to although my company requires it.  i haven't ran into needing it again but i am sure i will eventually.  you can buy the (whatever that external USB thing is called) which allows unlimited installs, but not after your initial purchase and i, like you, was not informed about all that as my company purchased for me and withheld from my pay.  win XP does a similar thing and only limits the installs on the software.  i think they both are a bunch of BS.  i pay for it, i deserve to do what i want with it.  can't help my hard drive crashed, etc.
I threw out the ice cube trays. sm

I posted this advice a few months ago.  I got sooooooooo tired of going to get ice and finding empty trays in the freezer and some in the sink.  So I just threw them out. 

About 2 days later, the kids (and hubby) are like, "How come we don't have any ice? And where are the ice cube trays"  My reply was, "I THREW the ice cube trays away because we NEVER have had any ice and we NEVER will. At least this way I KNOW that when I want some ice for my soda, there will not be any ice in my house EVER AGAIN!"  :) 

They all thought I was crazy.

I also put the trash can out in the garage and I hang up a plastic grocery bag on the door handle of the garage door until it is full enough to tie up and go out in the trash can.  Otherwise, I get the "TOSS" with spilled stuff everywhere,  and the "PYRAMID" and have to get out the trash bags to clean the stuff up.

I shined my house spotless one day and then spent a couple of weeks cleaning just my own stuff.  Washed my own dishes, cleaned my own spills, picked up my own clothes, did my own laundry (including towels that I hid for myself) cleaned my "toothpaste overflow" out of the bathroom sink, etc. (of course I cleaned the toilet and washed the floors, because that is just to icky).

At any rate, after the first day, they were washing dishes on "as per needed" basis.  After about 3 days, everyone was like, "Why is the house such a mess?"

I said, as I walked over shoes that didn't make it into the "shoe basket" by the door, and totally ignored the "clutter" everywhere: "GEE I don't know, I clean up after myself well enough."

They got the hint.  Things aren't immaculate, but much better.


Guess the MQMT threw me off
I was in the same boat until I threw a $ amount at him.

Then he said, "What are you talking to me for? Get back to work!"


hears to ears through to threw
Sorry no wonder you are so down on being a Transcriptionist as it is evident you have problems spelling. 
Huh? and you're not ashamed
I have gotten nothing but leftover garbage today thanks to people who think like you. Have you ever heard of karma? Don't you think I have to earn a living too? I guess the difference is I don't believe in screwing over my fellow MTs to do it.
Do not ever be ashamed of who you are.
or where you live, what you drive, or any other outward trapping of society.

The only people who have cause to be ashamed are those who belittle others for whatever reason; they are bigots and all bigots require only that they can make themselves appear (to themselves and others like them) to be better than they are by tearing down the lives of others. Quality has nothing to do with outside show, it has only to do with inner worth.

Bigots will always be among us. Pity them, they will never understand what quality - "class" - really is. They know the price of everything and the value of nothing.
That's ashamed...
I know I have many clinics try to diddle me town line wise, but I just refuse to be their little slave girl. They either want a good job done or they don't, and if they want a good job done, they're going to pay for it, or they can go find some little mamma willing to do it for nine or ten cents a line and then sit there with the jaws hanging down to their fannies as they read their shotty transcripts.
I am so ashamed to have this MT be one of my colleagues, not that I work at the same company, but just that we are both MTs. You know life is too short to be doing a job that you do not enjoy. I completely agree with the poster who said that most of would just be happy to get a raise! I work for one small MTSO, and have 1 doctor, and doe not get paid very much. BUT, this dictator is the same every day and I have many shortcuts set up for this dictator and so I make a more than decent amount per hour. What I would not give to have the same dictator every day and get a raise! I am so sorry that this MT did this to you and to the owner of you company. Sometimes people are like children give them an inch and they will take a mile. I hope the owner of the company talks with this MT and backs you up. If she does not want her job I would be interested in finding out more about this having the same dictator every day and working for a company that gives raises!!
Don't be ashamed...

With kids it's hard to have a savings account.  It seems all my hubs and I do is work, work, and work and then when we do get a vacation, we tend to use what should be in savings for "fun money."  I'm sorry but life is way too short. 

I have a kid in braces and another one that wears glasses.  Copays just went up majorly.  We have Aetna, and there are deductibles out the ying-yang.  Hope and pray none of us are majorly ill, we'd be done for.

I could find a job very, very fast but I'd probably slave for minimum wage since experience doesn't count in this profession even though they claim you must have 1-3 years before they hire.  I have 19 and make the same as someone with 2 years of experience.  Go figure!! 

Thank goodness for my own accounts to stay afloat and thankfully I am here when the kids get home from school and can grocery shop when it's not busy.  I save money by not buying fancy clothes for work but do treat myself to the hair salon (need a little something once in a while).

Don't be ashamed; we have no savings either...  Oh well...  Hopefully, the kids will get scholarships for college and if not, then I guess we'll just finance that too or they'll have to work their through and appreciate it more in the long run if they have to earn it the hard way like I did.  No silver spoon here and no handouts either. 

We work hard.  No, we would not be hurting if we lost one paycheck, but 2 or 3, most definitely would leave us behind in our bills.

What threw me is that they knew my last name and it is not in my e-mail address.
Yes! The "blue link" thing threw me, too,
Poster above explained the pulling number deal, but still not clear if that is for sure what it means. Oh well! Guess I'll just have to go buy myself something cool for MT Week. Master Card and Visa don't care if I'm a rocket scientist or not! :D
I went into this without prejudice, threw myelf actually, but it seems to get worse...
instead of better. I feel I got a pay cut with almost the same amount of work. Some jobs are great, then you get 3-4 that are heavy in editing and it ruins anything you got with a good 1 or 2.
Ah, go ahead...don't be ashamed...

No one will laugh.  And, most likely no one will slam you for it either.  There are only a few really nasty, jealous people here.   

LOL!!!! I have no reason to be ashamed
There are consequences for every choice. Not preparing for the consequences of choices made and expecting to be bailed out of those consequences constitutes the typical welfare mentality. A choice to live in a disaster-prone area without making adequate preparations for disaster is a choice that will have predictable consequences. Those who embrace the welfare mentality immediately blame others for the consequences of their failure to plan ahead and demands that others bear the cost and the responsibility for salvaging them from the results of their own choices. The welfare mentality is not the exclusive province of welfare recipients. Trust me, I will never seek or expect help from you or anyone else. I would far rather rely on my own preparation and resources. Besides, whiners have nothing I need.
Whatever. Nothing to hurt and I'm not ashamed.
I'm a little ashamed to say....just I enjoy going to
I know this isn't as exciting as the other posters, but honestly...just going to the beach and relaxing is great for me!! :>
You shouldn't be ashamed..

So what if it's not the South of France.  As long as you had a good time and enjoyed yourself, that's what it's all about! 

I have done a lot of traveling, and I can tell you the best vacation that goes down in my memory book is going to Sanibel Island, Florida - surf fishing, catching fish - swimming in the ocean - and kicking back wtih my honey with a Mai Tai.  We sent out to dinner at lot at some really nice restaurants there, but the best was steaks on the grill the resort had available there and a great bottle of vino.

I hope you get to Myrtle Beach again and enjoy yourself. 

(High Five To Ya') 

I'm sure your grandparents would be ashamed of you
maybe that's why you hate successful whites so much - you're jealous
sorry..ashamed to "say"...not same..duh lol
I'm ashamed to say I don't know how to copy to a floppy. Can you
No on is an idiot and you should be ashamed of yourself for calling anyone that. nm
My son did. I am ashamed to say that I didn't know how and I had to ask my teenager to do it.
1984. I was in 4th grade. I'm 32 and not ashamed to say!!
Good for you! Every vote counts!
Myrtle Beach! Nothing to be ashamed of! I would rather go there!!!nm
Sounds like you are depressed....Nothing to be ashamed about.
I recommend you talk to your physician and maybe get in some therapy sessions, not necessarily medication, but get to the root of how you can assess where you are overwhelmed and what steps you can take to take control. This site is actually a great site, on occasion you will find some nastiness, but overall there are some wonderful women who are very supportive in situations like these.

I was diagnosed last year with depression and anxiety and although I was on meds, I think the therapy was major reason for my successful outcome. I learned why my life is so unorganized and stressful and I learned some very helpful tools to use on a dialy basis when confronted with these issues.

One thing I found to be helpful for myself is I started to take my shower before I started work, even put on makeup. It really does change how you feel about yourself. I recommend you start there.

Good Luck!
I am almost ashamed to same I am from the same state as these freaks...
They absolutely sicken me. They are a radical CHURCH group believe it or not that protest funerals all over the U.S. on the basis that for one they love the publicity..and their "grounds" for protesting funerals is that the people who are dead are dead because it's God's punishment to the world for society's and the military's acceptance of gays. That's it. I mean come on...I don't care what your position is on gays, I cannot fathom the idea that they feel it's ok to stand outside the funeral of a soldier killed in Iraq or now these poor innocent children....to hold up disgusting hate signs with such things as "911 is God's gift to gays"..and they truly believe these people deserve to die because of this. It's total INSANITY to say the least. They are absolutely disgusting.
Has anyone disconnected the internal sound card and replace with another sound card?

I am having problems with my sound on one of my computers.  Several different ExText program have been on it so I don't think it is the program and the sound is just now as clear as on my other computer.  Has anyone switched (disconnected the internal sound care and replaced) to a new sound card?  Did it make a difference. 

Everyone on this board is so knowledgeable, I really appreciate you.  You have helped me many times. 

I think it depends where you live. My parents threw a huge party sm
for me when I graduated with about 150 people. The gifts weren't in the $100 range but it was 23 years ago. I received over $5000 in gifts and that was used to help buy the things I needed to go away to college such as bed linens, dorm furnishings, etc. The rest was used over the 4 years to subsidize when I needed extra for something. Yes, my parents paid for college, to the tune of $25k per year. They were happy to do it and proud when I graduated with honors and got a good job afterwards.

I'm going to do the same for my 2 kids that my parents did for my sister and I. There is nothing wrong with working hard to give your kids the best in life and nothing wrong with celebrating their milestones. If you don't agree with graduation parties, don't go to them, but if you don't celebrate your kids' milestones and make them special occasions, who will?

I threw my back out playing dodge ball in 2nd grade. nm
Or discpline time! My kids would be very sorry if they threw things at me or in the house. Two hours
is not too long for them to give you some space.  That's really sad for you, but maybe try to rein them in.  Can't hurt, right?
My 8-year-old threw up on the way home from family celebration Christmas Eve, all over the back seat

Then threw up approximately every hour from 10:00 p.m. until 8:00 a.m. Christmas morning.  Not the Christmas I had planned, up cleaning bodily fluids all night.  Somehow Santa managed to come overnight, too.  My husband, me and the 2-year-old didn't get the bug until last night, it's vicious!  Hopefully that's all over now and we can enjoy the rest of our vacation!



My kiddos start school next Wed and I'm not ashamed to say it will be a relief. My teenaged son

gives me hourly updates on his boredom every single day.  Now, my daughter is starting kindergarten this year and I will be sad probably the first week because she's my baby - my last baby - but she is sooooo ready for school.  She just can't wait.  Maybe I should be the one with hurt feelings since she can't way to leave me! 

I highly doubt my son's feelings are hurt when I say "Just think, you won't be bored when school starts."

Okay-I admit it!!!
I to have been known to try and give advice based on what doctors have recommended to family members but by no means do I say "do this, do that"--I just say this is what some of the doctors I transcribe for have recommended.  I guess it is my nosy nature-I think that is one of the reasons I love MT.  I can be nosy without anybody really knowing-haha.  Actually, I dont call myself nosy (my husband does), I just tell him I am aware of my surroundings and there is nothing wrong with that. 
I must admit...
My lawn IS looking "perkier" now! LOL. Maybe we'll get some of the "bluegrass" back from the "crabgrass"...
They do have a TON of ESL and admit it! nm
But the pay is too low you have to admit
Yep, they admit it.
I admit it, at least a pot or more. nm
lol, just admit it already ;0
Unfortunately you admit you are not the
*best spellers or *and expert in grammer* and this is a big part of what MTing is all about. A great MT has an excellent or above average grasp on the English language, grammar and a knack with spelling/words. Perhaps this field is not for you.
I admit, I do not know a ton about these two, but - sm
can you, as a work around, copy them onto a word document and then copy them from word onto the new platform?  It is just a thought, like I said I do not know a ton about either, but I thought I would throw that out there.
I have to admit...
I'm not cranking out the lines like I usually would. I'm doing my one fussy account, but the other one I'm letting get a little behind. It's hard to work up the motivation to work when you aren't getting paid, you know?
I am glad to see this I have to admit
I was beginning to think I was the only one out there who thinks this company is just like all the rest, including pay, platform, accounts, etc. They switch me without asking me and I refuse to do the work. Not for that lousy pay!!
