In Reply to: Oh really? - sm

them-thar' fags. Honestly, I am probably the MOST unprejudiced (if that's a word) person in my entire family! I'm constantly rolling my eyes at THEM because they use inappropriate names to refer to people and I don't like it.

I am a conservative who doesn't believe in same-sex marriages! I am totally against it.

What I am saying is this: This lady is NOT making this stuff up. It happens. We may not like it, but it happens. and here's the real kicker: We need to love these so called "degenerates." We really do. Like the Beatle's song goes: All you need is love...

Love can make them turn around. Really!

Not me. Live in Alabama and it's hot here. nm
No, everyone in Auburn, Alabama does not live in trailers.
A lot of the students attend Auburn University.
well now there's a trend. doesn' t everyone in auburn, alabama live in a trailer?
what college do the trailer park students attend?
I wish I knew...every day I hate this job more...(SM)
but  my appearance prevents me from working outside the home.  Would I love to though....anything...sales person....hot dog stand....real estate person....  work different jobs for Manpower Temporary Services.  If you have the option to do something else...go for it...even if the pay is low...it will at least hold a challenge for you...then move on to something else.  
See, I knew you wouldn't
answer. People always want to talk about good money, but they never want to let anyone know what they consider good money. Opinions are different on thta, ya know.
I KNEW I wouldn't get 20/20 the first time around SM
and ended up 20/40; they wanted to try monovision to eliminate need for reading glasses (I'm in my 40s) but I hated it (personal preference). So went back for 20/20 in both eyes and got it. Still don't need reading glasses yet and can read tiny print but know that's only going to be so much longer. Lasik was the best thing I ever did.
I'm weird, but if I KNEW it was my last meal, I wouldn't
I knew you wouldn't bother to reply
since you obviously have nothing intelligent to say when confronted with the facts.
HATE IT. Use the free version, wouldn't pay
for it. 
Me - I hate these things too. Both of them. sm
Don't do showers, wedding or baby, either.
Not really hate..but not enough time for the things that bug me (nm)

several things that cats really hate usually,
if you can catch them in the act -- water spray with a bottle, or clap hands loud and aggressively shout 'no' (then pretty soon, a simple loud NO will do), and/or use a rolled up newspaper to swat at them (you don't have to hit the cat, but hit somehing nearby -- its the noise that gets their attention). If none help, can put in a cat carrier whenever they misbehave. Good luck.
Still Reverse Poll: What are the 2 things you hate about your DH?
LOL, maybe so but I wouldn't have married him if he didn't do those things! ;o)
I hate wireless internet. I live in an apartment and
trying to get it to stay connected it almost impossible.
One of the worse things about working from home is never getting away from it. I hate
Yes, 13.50 wouldn't rent you a studio apartment where I live. And agree
While I wouldn't do any of these things I thought it was a total HOOT!! Lighten up you guys. (nm)
i know the price and value of most things. i am NOT a bigot. i know if you live in a place that is
Because a trailer park is cheaper housing you get a lot of uneducated people living there who make trailer park living undesirable for most. That is why people make fun of trailer park trash. I am not tearing down anyone. You live where you are comfortable but I would not be comfortable in a trailer park having to defend my style of life and along with my lifestyle, I would be defending the whole trailer park whose lifestyle I may not admire. Bigot schmigot. Trailer park quality of life and conditions in many trailer parks are fact and you choose to ignore it or call people bigots who bring it to others attention.
Love psych notes. HATE, HATE, HATE, HATE,
HATE ER notes.
I hate DocQSribe, I hate DocQScribe, I hate DocQScrbe, I hate DocQScribe, I hate DocQSribe.
It wouldn't load with my Office. Somehow it wouldn't "read" my 2003 Basic, although sm
technical couldn't find anything wrong with my software. They really tried hard. I see so many people that like Escription, I'm sorry not to be able to use it. Hopefully I can get Office Pro on my next machine, and maybe use it then. I could upgrade, but I'm still not sure it would work.
Love cardiology, hate podiatry. Hate discharges, but
I hate those but I hate trauma notes on children even more sm
I used to work for a large hospital that saw a lot of children for various horrible things.

The very last one I did was a 12yo boy who had hung himself while his mother was at work. She thought he was in school. The doctor cried, I cried (as I usually did) and I just couldn't handle that anymore. That was the longest report I swear. Short in lines but the length was almost an hour. The doc didn't pause the machine, she cried, horrible gut wrenching sobs, and I did too, right along with her.
I knew him well before I asked him out, so I knew
a long time before our first date that he was the one for me. He didn't know it that soon, but I did.
I'm in Alabama! nm

Auburn, Alabama
Thanks so much for your help here.  We're retired,  my husband is a retired truck driver and THANK GOD we have the ability to help others in need.   If we can just find out who, what, when and where, we're prepared to rent a truck, do a drive here locally and bring the stuff but we've made phone call on top of phone call and no one seems to know how we can help except to donate to the Red Cross but we want specifically to help the forgotten people.
$15.00 an hour for MT in Alabama

I think so (Alabama doc with accent!)
I have to admit I'm flipping here a bit.  My son took my headphones to school somehow and I'm having to do this without headphones!  Thank you so much!
Wouldn't that mean that you simply wouldn't have to print out everything?

Katrina in Mississippi/Alabama

Does anyone know of contacts in Mississippi/Alabama that are needing help for their people who have lost everything?  We chose to donate cash to the Salvation Army.  By the time I got around to cleaning out my closets, neither the SA or ARC were taking clothing donations and I'm one of those people who is very bad about buying things and then never wearing them so much of the stuff has tags still attached, not exactly junk.  Now that it's gathered up, I'll just donate it to our local Helping Hands but would like do whatever we can do to help the people of Miss/AL in particular.   It seems they are the "forgotten refugees."  At least in our area, we see very little about them but did see a news clip last night that looked like they were as devastated as NO, if not more so.  Surely they need help too?  TIA for any info.

RE: Katrina in Mississippi/Alabama
We had the same problem. All kinds of good stuff and no one had room left for donations of clothing, etc. Our community came up with the idea of a gigantic garage sale and donate the proceeds to the Red Cross. So that is exactly what is happening next weekend. Sorry if this is a double post, my cat ran over my keyboard. He feels so good every morning!!
Alabama here - Huntsville area

I'm also from Alabama, in the Huntsville area.  If you're an IC in this area, you're lucky to get .12 per line.  Huntsville is supposed to be so high tech with all the NASA, Boeing and Marshall Space Flight Center stuff; unfortunately, the doctors in the area still have the 1975 price mentality! 

I know there is a large transcription service in your area that handles some physicians in this area and they're only charging .12 per line, so it may be a bit much for B'ham.  If you would like to know who I'm referring to, please e-mail me at tow46@aol.com and note this in the subject so I won't delete it.

North Alabama Transcriptionists
Are there any hospitals based in North Alabama who use at-home Radiology Transcriptionists?
Huntsville, Alabama Hospital

Does anyone have any experiences to share about Huntsville Hospital in north Alabama?  I put in an application thinking it was only sports medicine (I have PT experience mostly), but their Medical Secretaries probably transcribe for the full range of hospital services. I'm supposed to get in touch with them tomorrow to talk.

Back off Alabama, Jack!
them-thar' fags????

You know...I came on here to rip you up but I think you did that to yourself...I just would like other people to know that at least ONE person in Alabama isn't emotionally/mentally/morally challenged as this poster.

And if you have a problem with that, I'll let Carlos Mencia do the talking for me! Du-du-doh!!!!
Any North Alabama Transcriptionists?
I posted on the state board, but I don't think many people go to that board.  I was just wondering if there any home-based transcriptionists near me.  Thank you for your time.

You can still get grape Nehi in Alabama. sm
I love the peach Nehi too. You can make some really good ice cream using what ever flavor Nehi you want and two cans of Eagle Brand.
Moving from Alabama to Sacramento, CA
Getting married in December.  Fiance' has been there for a year now.  How is the transcription job market in California.  I have a work-at-home job, but thinking maybe I can get something local.  Compared to Alabama, the cost of living is extremely high though.  How is the climate there, any and all info appreciated.
Sweet Home Alabama
Sorry so long in responding...went on vacation.
why yes the quality of air where i live is quite different than where the city people live.
Lots of pollution.  That's why everyone is moving away from the city and areas zoned for multiple housing units and low income housing and trailer parks.  Population is dense and near manufacturing.  So yes, the air is different but millions of people pay a little extra for the quality, the space and privacy afforded to those who move out of polluted crowded areas such as you defend.  There is always a reason why some areas and housing is cheaper than others.  Maybe it is the air and maybe it's something you can't quite put your finger on but you know you would prefer not to live in certain areas.  You know what I mean or are you living in one of those areas?  They tell after awhile you block out the sounds, the smells and get used to the pollution.  I don't know.  I didn't stay long enough to test the theory.  My mental and physical health is way too important to me.
