nasty email
I worked for a lady who would send me nasty email in all CAPS and in BOLD.  Finally I asked her if was her version of yelling at me and she said "no, I was in bold and caps and forgot to remove"  Yah Right.  She never did it to me again.  I just thought How UNPROFFESIONAL! I don't work for her anymore and I am treated respectfully by my new employer.
Boss sent me a nasty email, I replied and proved she was wrong, and yet no apology. sm

This is not the first time -- she's the first to blast you if she thinks you didn't make your line count, work when you should, etc., but if she makes a mistake, she NEVER says "I'm sorry," or "I was wrong" ... nada!  Most of the time, I just blow it off.  The pay is great, the accounts good, and sufficient work, but other times, I wonder if it is worth it.  I suppose in today's job market, I should just be glad to be employed ... maybe I'm just greedy in also wanting to be treated with professionalism, respect, and courtesy. 

Not sure if I even have a point -- guess I just needed to vent a bit.  Thanks for "listening."   

FWIW, nasty is in the eye of the beholder and you have given nasty as good as you got.
Read your posts again very carefully.
Please leave an email or email me at my address....click the email button. Thanks...nm
If you are having any problems validating your email addy, please email support@mtstars.com
KVMs $20-60. One internet connection. You'd have no email or a 2nd email acct for your 2nd puter.
I don't understand. I didn't get email from MT Stars, I got email from offshore people
is what I'm talking about. I'm not a liar and take offense to your insinuation.
They can send an email that goes to all MTs in one shot. I think she just means a courtesy email
would be nice. MQ is not getting any easier. My account has been picked over thoroughly when it went on DQS by ASR and I get all the remains because they only have a core group doing ASR which I think is wrong because you get all the bad dictators and it would be nice to be acknowledged that at least you know the person you can discuss problems with as they crop up. This is a big one and we have no manager anymore and no one to discuss this with at all in my office so you just sit here very day doing this work and no way to vent to someone that could offer some suggestions on this and other issues that come up to help relieve some of the stress of working this way.
Just send an email to the email link inside the post.
Again, because you entered your email address, you CAN receive email from anyone, but THEY

e-mail address because it is not revealed when they send mail because we have spam protection in place.  The only way they would know what your email address is, is if you reply to the email they send you.  If you don't want to receive any email from anyone, simply do not enter your email address in the Email field.


I intended to email it- already email the mods to remove
Not through the MTStars email server. Your email address is NOT
visible to anyone.  The only way your employer would know it is you is 1) if you respond when someone emails you, or 2) they recognize the way you write. 
after being nasty, now you want to
know which office? I think not, to tell YOU.
Nasty, not me!!!
It got nasty
Those posts got pretty nasty between a few people.  I have strong convictions about a lot of things but I would not have come across as some do on this board.  I often feel that when someone comes across like that it usually means that there has been a problem in that area  -- he who does protest too much. But we all do have a right to our own opinions and I try to look at everyone's.  I understand where having a glass of wine is not someone's cup of tea but because I do (and maybe not every one can keep it in moderation) does not mean I am unprofessional, irresponsible or not capable of doing my job.  Would be glad to match years of experience, paychecks and longevity of accounts with any of you that called me unprofessional, irresponsible and uncapable of doing my job.    Patti
who got nasty?

I certainly didn't, and nobody got nasty with me. In fact, it was one of the better heated discussions I've seen or been involved in. And I've been in the middle of some lulus!!! (but not here)

You want sunshine, lollipops, and rainbows ... turn on Lesley Gore. 

Don't let someone with a nasty
attitude ruin your self-esteem about what you have done with your life. Just consider the source. They sound bitter to me and try to make it everyone else's fault. Keep up your good work and ignore what someone who does not matter has to say. Just be thankful you do not work for her.
Truly, I did not mean to be nasty, but with the...sm
problem you reported with your resumes not being responded to, it wasn't clear if you were just more casual here. You could just as easily replied there wasn't anything wrong your grammar. Having worked in human resources before, I know most resumes/correspondence gets 15 seconds to 1 minute of time. I have personally blown a couple job opportunities because I set the wrong tone with my resume, e-mail, and cover letter (jobs I really, really wanted), and I was only trying help. I have certainly been at my wits end in this business, too, and feel for those MTs who feel stuck in a job they're not happy with.
Not only are you a nasty sm
BEACH, but you have sand in your nether regions! I have never seen anyone on this board with more nasty bones in their body then you have.

The reason you aren't making any money is because YOU ARE HANGING OUT HERE SPEWING YOUR BILE.
tried to email, invalid poster or email it said nm
San Antonio; email me; I can give you email for MT sm

who is in San Antonio and may be able to help you.

I'm in Corpus.

I just had a nasty conversation with a
telephone rep from India who informed me that all Americans were uneducated, stupid, and "farmers" and that India was getting all the jobs because they were all educated. She shut her fat mouth when I asked if that is why India still practices putting female infants on the hillsides to be eaten by wolves, why so many of their people are starving to death, and why disease is so rampant. They are getting to be the most arrogant bunch of people I have ever seen.
Nasty women
You know women should be supportive of each other. Let's face it, men aren't, like the lady said. I worked in offices where some of the women there were so nasty and catty and rude. Seems lots of them are on here too. Thank God for being able to work at home. I don't think anyone is looking for pity on this board, but for crying out loud, doesn't anybody have a warm heart anymore. There are lots of cold-hearted people on here talking, must be from the East Coast.
Oh, please! Nowhere was I nasty or rude.
Did I call her names or belittle her like a lot of you do on this board?  No, I merely asked how she knew she was being trained wrong and stated what my experience has been.  MTs need to be adaptable.  That's the best thing a newbie can do is to learn to be flexible according to the rules of the accounts she's put on.  Wouldn't you agree?  Honestly, if you're that hypersensitive to think that I was nasty or rude, you need to toughen up.  All I did was ask a question and state some facts.  I wasn't judgmental or condescending at all, like many others I see here.
You are nasty!!!! You need to find a better
maybe, just maybe that would help your attitude. Otherwise, but out and stay off this board. You are not wanted.
My son just had it 2 weeks ago, very nasty.
He was so sick that he ended up sleeping on the bathroom floor (worse than a bad hangover) with vomiting and diarrhea. It lasted almost 24 hours and he was horribly weak for the next day as well.
If this is just a nasty rumor,
then some of the news stations on TV (notably CNN) are in big trouble, because they are reporting it as fact. They report that if you click on Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (and one other that I can't remember), you will be directed to other movies you might like, such as Planet of the Apes, etc., featuring black actors. This is all very derogatory and racially biased and Wal-Mart is falling all over itself apologizing, so it must have some basis in fact.

Nasty QA comment?
Dear OldQA:

I am one of the recently laid off Heartland employees. I went to this message board for some job hunting and support in light of this situation, and I was completely baffled by some of the things I read. Here are 2 of many comments from your not-so-nasty colleagues as an example of what Im talking about:

(Posted by MsAnonnie Mouse)
First of all, I would like to say that I sympathsize wtih those that were laid off at Heartland, however, I believe that that there were probably indications that this was going to happen, I for one, remember seeing a LOT of job ads for Heartland and they suddenly stopped on the 2 major transcription job boards. For me, that was an indication that something was going down the tube.
I also do not agree wtih offshoring, but when I read the posts on this board, I see one theme over and over; that being laziness in general. I see posts where people gripe and complain about having to work weekends or nights or whatever and wanting to get paid decent money, but they want to only be able to work 8-5 Monday through Friday. I have been in this field for over 20 years and I believe that I have always pulled my fair share. I have seen it in the company that I work for now, and the work load goes up dramatically on the weekends, because NOBODY wants to work and as we all know, medical transcription, for the most part, is a profession that is 24/7.
Sadly to say, our society has become one, where we expect to have something for nothing. Meaning that we want the nice thinngs, but we don't have to break our necks for it. I hear of friends who are giving their kids brand-new to almost brand-new cars in high school. Heck, when I was growing up, if I wanted contacts, or a car, or clothes, I had to detassel corn or work in a fast food place to get the money to be able to have those things. I don't see that happening now, and in essence, that is why so many of our jobs have been offshored. Its not only a cheaper labor cost, but most of these people in general have a better work ethic.
My company takes pride in the fact that it doesn't offshore and it will be a cold day in a very warm place before they do.
My only advice to those that were laid off is to hang in there, send out the resumes and hopefully, you will be able to find a new company that will treat you like an employee and not a number.

In Reply to: Heartland Layoffs - MsAnonnie Mouse
Some people seem to be missing the point here -- I also do QA as well as medical transcription and I generally am working MANY hours a day and usually 6-7 days a week, because I know budget-wise what it takes for me to surviive.
As a QA person, I see a quality of work that is totally unacceptable and it is from American medical transcriptionists. I read about people saying they can do X number of lines in an hour, or that they type X number of words a minute and as a QA person, that is usually the persons report that has 10 or more blanks in it, because UNFORTUNATELY they are more concerned about production than they are quality.
I sometimes wonder how many medical transcriptionists go back and re-listen to a report they have typed and then are able to figure out what the doctors are saying?
I have worked both inhouse and from home and I really have to agree that if someone TRULY wants to get started in this field, then they should work onsite first to truly get a grasp at what medical transcription entails.
There ARE people who are medcal transcriptionists who DO work long and hard hours and ARE getting shafted by the companies they work for, but quite frankly, I am tired of the ones who have toddlers and small children at home and whine about how they can do this work and take care of their kids too -- just because you work at home, dosen't mean that your children can be underfoot all the time and it is also learning about priorities as well. If you were working on the outside, you would NOT be allowed to take a huge amount of time off for kid activities or family activities, so the MTSOs do have legitimate gripes when it comes to employees not working when they say they will or keeping to a schedule, and this is where I am coming full circle when I talk about a work ethiic -- it has slowly and steadily been disappearing over the years.

Real nice show of support huh? There is nothing more disgusting than using the subject of layoffs, or offshoring for that matter, as a platform to complain about your own problems and dissatisfaction with your job. Shame on them!

Dear Scribevibe: With that being said, you WILL come across nasty, condescending comments such as these (on this message board as well as when you're working). I have been doing this for years, and I still come across them, and they are OBNOXIOUS! You need to let their comments roll off your back or they'll drive you nuts. There are QAs out there who are helpful and even sometimes encouraging, but be prepared for ones who are not and IGNORE THEM (and their nitpicking). Don't let them "snark" you :)
Oh I think she's VERY nasty, but I LOVE her! lol
Hm, been my experience that QA's not usually nasty
Only time I've ever used the exclamation point when communicating with an MT is when they have thoroughly ticked me off by completely ignoring my previous requests....
Nasty and rude. You can
direct people to the infor they need in a much more appropriate and decent manner!
Don't mean to sound nasty but this is a
are trying to get out. 
not nasty -- testy, because....

if you had all the best accounts in your livelihood taken away and were left with the dregs, you'd be a little annoyed at anyone who had benefited from that who then had the audacity to try to then insinuate themselves into this one precious place that is supposed to be just for us.  I know, run-on sentence.

Read all you like, but don't post. 

not trying to be nasty, just stating sm
a fact. Too many MTs out there without sufficent education and they are suppose to mess around until they "realize" that they don't have the education?

I have seen schools make promises to these people that they can't keep. I have warned people not to put their money into these schools and most don't listen. Have actually had people call after they "finish" school and tell me that they cannot or could not transcribe the tapes given to them on a final examination.

Sure wish folks would listen. This is not a career for folks to walk into hoping to be a "fast learner." I wonder if your doctor is a "fast learner?" This kind of attitude has brought this profession down to nothing more than a typist.
You are a very angry nasty person.
How can you people be so cruel and nasty?
She is obviously trying to do the best for her son, and at this point is trying to figure out what it is.  I'm sure she would discuss this option with the doctor or counselor before she made a decision.  Cruel and selfish, right.  Look in the mirror.
Like we really needed to hear that. How nasty.
Don't let some nasty, catty old women get you down. sm
Remember, there's a reason some of these folks are working at home, and it's not because they had a choice. They simply can't interact well with people. I imagine them as fat, older women in lots of debt and living in dirty homes, probably chain smoking at their computers while they fire off posts that reflect the ugliness and unhappiness inside of them. It's sad, really.
I did not read all of below but it did not seem to me that anyone got nasty or self-righteous- sm
I think you were given sound advice below. I am sure it is just hard to hear the harsh truth of the world. It is hard enough to get a job when you are new, but I am sure most employers don't want to deal with felons, regardless of the crime committed. Granted if it had anything to do with trust, i.e. theft, larcency, B&E, etc. from their point of view they probably don't want to worry about the confidentiality of their client's patients. I am sure you are in a touchy position. I have not applied to anyone in a while and do not recall the terms of the felony questions usually on an application. I am sure it is tempting to say "no" in an effort to get a job, which may backfire of you if you ever attempt that. I think it is admirable that you are being honest about it. Keep trying is all I can say, took me 2 months to find the first job, then 2 more landed in my lap (after applying as a newbie). A small local MTSO would probably be your best bet. Good luck.
what happened to the posts...did they get nasty?
agree; the only nasty posts are from those who do not
I will not post nasty messages

about ESL. I will not post nasty mesages about ESLs. I will not post nasty messages about ESL.

Okay, done. I did not post a nasty message about ESLs.

People's nasty responses
show that they are unhappy in their own lives. It doesn't make it right or pleasant, but it is about them!

It's not that those of us who complain of this do not want honest feedback, but we all know the difference between that and being just plain nasty.

I agree ... please take the nastiness elsewhere!!
There's nothing wrong w/ honesty, it's the nasty

rude, mean, demeaning and downright vicious comments that we're talking about.  Just because it's not all "rosy & lucratiive" doesn't mean you can't offer a nice word of encouragement.  Why step all over someone's dream just because your dream didn't come true with this industry?  Maybe it's not all about the money.  Maybe someone is going into this field in order to be at home with their family.  You can be honest without being nasty and rude, that's the whole point here.  Be honest, tell it like it is, but for heaven's sake, KEEP IT FRIENDLY.

I think she's already there on the political board, being nasty to
anyone who responds to her, for a couple of postings. I don't understand people sometimes.

How Nasty and Rude - I think you have been at this too long.
What gives you the right to judge other people, their situations, and credibility when you have no idea what you are even judging in the first place?  You said I have no credibility with MTs.  YOU can speak for all MTs?  Really?  Then why have this board.  A question was posed to me and I answered it honestly.  Where did you get that I have a gripe?  If you will try to comprehend what you read, you will see that I was not the one with the gripe, however only trying to help some really nice people who do.  Comments like yours are not helpful or productive, only nasty and rude.
That was not nasty..she stated the truth in a very nice way.
ADMINISTRATOR: Nasty acronyms here...please delete.
This poster cannot refrain from being filthy with her language or acronyms.

You, my dear, are the nastiest, sickest person on this board.  Just because someone may have a different opinion, the only retort you can come up with out of your little pea-sized brain is some personal attack.  Because you know the things you are proclaiming abour Medquist have no merit.  Quit trying to stir up problems.  If you are such a high producer, how do you have so much time to come to this board to try to start trouble?  You are sickening.  And go ahead and flame away, baby if it makes you feel better about your miserable existence, I have a Teflon ass.
so, what kinda nasty thing does peep mean? sm

cause my kids say it all the time, referring to people, "their peeps" etc.  I've never heard it used as anything nasty. Can't even think what it might mean, the nasty version! Please, do tell!
