Oh give me a break. If had watched the show..sm

Posted By: Good grief, you can't be serious! on 2006-07-04
In Reply to: I saw a couple interviews - tho not a View watcher,

you would have known WHY they asked her to leave. She was arrogant, pushy, demanding, and interruptive to put it mildly. The show is WAY better off without her and her attitude of "better than thou."

Has anybody watched the TV show "Earl?"


Aw come one give her a break. She said she was sorry and is willing to refund. Give her a chance to

do what is right.  If she fails to do what is right, then go about this in an adult way and not act like such a child.  "you suck"  That is so immature.

She is responding to you and you are eating her alive.  Why would she put herself out there to be treated like this if she didnt mean it. 

I am really astonished at how people can act on here.  Would you treat people like this in person?  If you do, I cant imagine you having very many friends. 

Remember we are all "HUMAN." 


Give yourself a break (sm)

and do something else this year, it doesn't have to be forever.  Also, I think you should tell your mother the problem.

You can join me, I have an evil stepmother and nobody would pick me up from the Amtrak and now the tickets are sold out and it's too late to go for the holidays.  On the other hand, I find dealing with it so draining that I'm off the hook this year and can do whatever I want, I won't be spending my holiday on the freeway.  Good luck!

Give me a break!!

If you are working that much and making $6000 to $7000 a month it's a good thing... the only way you will be able to spoil your kids is w/material things.. would rather work less and enjoy what little time they are little....
I have read so many times about people who say they make all this money... I often wonder what else these people do with thier lives???
Give her a break

You sound like such a rightious person, hope you don't need help some day.  Again I would much rather have her collect some unemployment until she can find a job that truly suits her than just have to take any job.  You can say the employer pays it but it is a 'Undefined benefit" that we all have when we work enough hours and if someone lays you off or fires you for cause as long as you weren't stealing or doing something against the rules.   Much better than the welfare fraud, the illegals coming in and taking our tax dollars after having only been here for a few weeks/months.  At lease she has been in the workforce contributing to society and her taxes.  So get off her back, give her some space so she can find a job that suits her and doesn't have to take the first one that comes along.  And no, I am a MTSO and cannot collect unemployment so I am not personally involved in this.


Give her a break!
For crying out loud! You obviously have never taken time away from your own accounts (Yes, time = money!) to try to train someone only to have her turn around and quit on you. It is frustrating, time consuming and costs money to the person who is kind enough to try to give her a break. This person is totally within her rights to feel violated. Personally I wouldn't give out her name either, but I wouldn't bash the original poster for stating her frustration over the situation. Please walk a mile in someone else's shoes before you criticize them.
give us a break!!! She/he knew exactly....sm

the MT knows exactly what the dictator was TRYING to say as far as his poor English.  Yes, verbatim is verbatim, but WRONG is just wrong, and what the MT would need to correct would not, in the least, affect the patient's care.

You're dead wrong on this.

Choke! Give me a break, would you?
Ba-wah Walters is anything but classy. The way she announced that Star was going - well, one would have thought the president was assinated and it was the end of the world.

What a joke.

Ba-wah looks out for Ba-wah and Ba-wahs' pocketbook and public opinion. She's not interested in anyone or anything else. Much like Star, Rosie, Joy and the rest of those nit wits on The View.
MT vs Bus driver? Give me a break

For heaven's sakes.  Did it ever occur to you that if you can't decide, however rhetorically, whether to be an MT or drive a bus that you don't belong in this profession? 

I'm SO TIRED OF LISTENING TO MTs complain.  If you don't have a passion for what you do, here's a tip:  DO SOMETHING ELSE! 

You don't develop a passion for something just because it pays enough!  There are a lot of facets to passion.  And if you're doing something you don't have a passion for you're wasting your life.

Why is the fact that you're not making enough money or you're underappreciated SOMEBODY ELSE'S FAULT!  It's YOUR fault. 

Are you kidding. Give it a break, pulleeeas
Oh to have such problems in life. Give me a break.
How shallow can you get?
Give me a break! This is America, you want to be here, speak the language!

Geez. give the girl a break already. For definition of racist, sm
PER WIKIPEDIA: Racism is a belief system or doctrine which postulates a hierarchy among various human races or ethnic groups. It may be based on an assumption of inherent biological differences between different ethnic groups that purport to determine cultural or individual behaviour. ...

I went back and read the OPs post about 3 times. Not once did she use the word hate and she said "most" not "all." We've all had bad days. I was cursing under my breath while working just today because one inconsiderate mumbling Primadonna ruined my entire morning. She just happened to be American.

Face it. There is a stereotype that many doctors have God complexes, are arrogant, demanding, and have to have their way. Doctors are inconsiderate. These are intelligent people that just don't give a rats. I'll prove it by saying that I've been a medical Transcriptionist for 18 years and no other "professional" has ever belched, eaten, cursed, or urinated while on the phone with me.

You don't have to be an MT to get frustrated over the language barrier either. I've owned my last Dell computer, not because I hate Indians, but because every single time I've had to call I wind up ending the call because there is a complete communication breakdown. I would expect that if I "chose" to live in another country, but this is my home. Americans are the ones having to learn a second language because so many foreigner just wont. Just look at how many job posting there are for bilingual receptionists and secretaries. It's just not like that anywhere else but here. If I "chose" to live in Japan, Hong Kong, the Czech Republic, etc. you'd better believe I would be the one to learn "their" language. Why should they accommodate me? I'm on their soil. Why should it be any different here? No where else on the globe is it like this.

Sorry if this is long and choppy. I got distracted.
Give the crap a break. There is NO proof that MQ has sold, so 'critical' thinking isn't in

Give the crap a break. There is NO proof that MQ has sold, and while 'critical' thinking should be a part of the equation, sadly it isn't.  All some posters are doing here is stirring up trouble and they can go somewhere else, we don't want it here. 

Dano, regarding Softscript, I've received a number of emails from people who work at the company who appear to have legitimate complaints.  I see no reason for posters to not be allowed to post for others to be watchful. 

Because all threads referring to a so-called MQ sale were removed, some of the good comments went, too.  When a thread is removed in its entirety we are unable to pick and choose what stays.


They steal your money and then send you a check and you are thrilled. Give me a break.
Yeah, Dano, the poster I responded to was sure deserving of "kid gloves". Give me a break.
Everyone hates editors, everyone hates QA - it makes no sense, but that's the way it is. Period. If you are sweet to them and helpful, they stab you behind the back and freak when they get called in their errors.  If you are calm and blunt, they freak. If you are abrupt and to the point, they freak. If you send the masses emails saying Howdy, they stab you behind the back and diss you. Yet, we won't mention that they write us sweetly back!! And if we don't send them Howdy emails, they stab us behind our backs and complain that we don't write them. We do write them, per their own wish, and they complain that we're harassing them.  NOT.  The intelligent MT is the one who recognizes we all make errors, recognizes that editors are to catch errors and that it is our JOB to point said errors out to them - not a personal power trip. As I said, intelligent MTs recognize such - however, on this board there are not many who will fall into the above category. You'll see more in a second - flaming away!!  And the same nasty MTs wonder why they never get anywhere? Why they always get the crap dictators? Why they never get raises? I wonder.
If you can show proof you did this work for them, they then have to show they paid it in order
I watched also
Bruce Jenner seemed very stiff and almost afraid.  I think the team that did a lot of the lifts should not have gotten better scores.  The older judge is too hard on them since the celebs have never skated before.  I may watch next week just out of curiosity to see who is going bye-bye.
Believe it or not...I just watched
for the very first time.  I thought it was a very good movie.  Anyone else enjoy it like I did?  Thought Russell Crowe did an excellent job.
I have always watched ...
I've always noted what I can make an hour every where I've worked, so it seems strange that no matter what type of reports I have, I'm making around the same an hour... not much fluctation and is less than I can make at another company... (I work 2 different companies)...but I don't know how they could do it... 
I watched CNN yesterday almost all day, just

willing those miners to walk out, but knowing that wasn't likely to happen based on the fact that there was no apparent debris that could be blocking them in.  I celebrated with the families when word was circulated that 12 were alive.  I called my DH at work and cried like a baby.    I was numb after the news came that only 1 survived.   I kept hearing stories about how the miners were coming to meet their families at the church, a Red Cross person said the miners were fighting about going to the hospital, that they wanted to see their families, and after the ambulance went out I waited and waited wanting desperately to see those men walk out.  


I've Never Watched AI, Believe It or Not!!
Thanks so much for posting the link. He's got a fantastic voice. Even though I'm more than old enough to be his mother, that gray hair is SO sexy.
My sister watched our dog
I brought her home something from the place we visited.
I watched the prosecutor video
I watched the video with the interview with the Aruban prosecutor, which was on MSNBC videos in the internet..check it out, maybe it is still there.  She said the father was arrested for interfering with an investigation by talking to the boys and telling them no body, no crime.
I watched a special on TV last night
about outsourcing to India and how much they are gaining financially from this situation.  It showed some of the girls out shopping in nice malls buying three and four pairs of shoes at a time.  Wish I could just buy one pair!!  Bring our work back home!!!
Haven't watched the news all day
Boy, that family has been through so much.  Sometimes you think you are getting more than you can endure, don't you? 
I just watched the new episode. I hope
they can help Jeff out. Tempestt looks very pretty, and she was smart to take a break and go to school. Harvey rocks :)
Have you watched "How I Met Your Mother"?
It's on Monday's, I think. All my days run together, forgive me. It's not reality, but it's really refreshing. Good writing. I enjoy it.
nice to see some folks watched...sm
waiting to see how this progresses - hope it lasts as a reality show - seems like there is less *bickering* that with Dancing with the Stars, though I like that show too but NOT the judges there....*grin*
Haven't watched yet tonight (sm)
I taped it so I will watch it another time. I like Chris although he hasn't been as good the last couple of weeks. I love, love, love Taylor although he also has not really been his usual self the last few weeks. I also liked Mandisa. Paris and Katherine are great too. Oh, and Elliot. I DO NOT care for Kellie or Bucky, most especially Kellie. I think she is trying to play the cute down-on-the-farm girl like Carrie Underwood and, honey, she needs to stop already. Please, please let her be gone next. I'll settle for Ace being gone too though.
I haven't watched until tonight.
I would say that Kat has a really small range and tries to hit notes she just can't hit. The first and third song were just not good for her.  Taylor aced two of the three. Levon is a good song and I think would have been good for him, but he seemed kind of nervous. All in all, he is the winner.  Even Simon said so.  He's adorable.
My husband and I watched The Notebook (sm)

We both teared up.  He told me that he loved me like that, and that I was his Allie.  My birthday was shortly thereafter and on my envelope he wrote "To My Allie."  What a guy I'm married to.  After 23 years of marriage, our love is still growing strong!

My daughter and I watched and cried, too. Seems so
unfair, but then I believe God needed him. For a barb to get him in between the ribs and directly into his heart, God said, "It is time." 
LOL. You're right. It's been a while since I watched SNL. Thanks for the reminder.
I watched this video and sent it to my US Senator and also


I watched the game and have been a football fan for 40+ years.
excuse-making sore loser like you are.

Again, grow up.
Who watched American Idol tonight???
Cannot even believe that Bucky went home before Ace, Katherine, or Paris.  Ace cannot sing at all!  Bucky was not great, but it was definitely not his time to go! 
I watched it both times and couldn't believe it either time.
I really doubt they let them do actual work. It was probably practice stuff and just made them do X number of minutes of dictation or x number of hours and they just had to muddle through and type whatever they thought it was. I saw a few lines of what the husband typed and it made no sense from what I saw, so I think they just had to put in the time and guess, just to get a feel for what she does.
has anybody been watching Arrested Development? I watched four shows in a row on FOX and it is
I don't know when it is on regularly but it's a great show and they ran four shows back to back and it was laugh out loud funny.
No, that wasn't the case. I watched the interviews on the news.
The very next day after Wilma, there were people standing in line complaining about no help and what were they going to do. One healthy, 20ish woman in particular had her kids with her standing in line. She was upset because she didn't even have water for formula. Now, I do not have a problem helping children out. I would give kids everything I had, but the mother should have had enough brains to fill water jugs and take care of her kids. Those kids are depending on her to do the right thing, and she didn't do it. Her manicure with fake nails certainly was nice, though. Talk about messed up priorities. There were healthy men there complaining about having no water or food for themselves, too.
Yeah, I've heard of her but never watched or listened to her.
I just wish I could get someone else on board, too.
Ever watched Jay Leno's segment "Jaywalking?" People don't know a lot
Oh, me too!!! When I got my first microwave (very expensive) we all watched the bacon cooking.
I'm in the same boat.. Sat on the idol website and watched reruns of
I once watched a retired FBI profiler who studied the case SM
and found evidence of a break-in from the basement window. He took pictures, explained his theory, showed how somewhat could have broken in, hid under a bed. He theorized that the intent was not to kill her, but to rape her. Probably someone who was the house that night. I forgot the profiler's name, but it was an interesting show. Very sad, sad case.
The girl was 13, the rapist a distant relative they took in. Give money, give food and your time, b
you don't put your family at risk by taking in strangers. That's just plain foolish. There were over 3300 registered sex offenders in NO. Where are they now. In your community? Perhaps in your house? Good luck.
oh our lovely government does give illegals medicaid, foodstamps, and housing so in term we give tha
i have been through some rough times lately and had to apply for some help. there are signs, big signs, all over our offices saying "YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE LEGAL TO GET HELP". so we and our government do give them our benefits whether they are legal here or not. now that is messed up. i am helping to support them so they can take away my jobs and i can't even support my kids and yes i get benefits, wow $75 a month in food stamps which lasts not even a week in a household of 6. don't get me wrong, i am thankful for any help at the moment, but i get penalized for trying to work my tail off and still can't survive.

there was recently an article in our local newspaper where one of our local school districts tried to charge $1000 a year for each illegal student enrolled. it was bulked and the illegals got a lawyer to sue for discrimination. the school district merely stated that they had to HIRE extra teachers that could speak the foreign language just to teach these children and were trying to offset some of the expenses. ridicilous!! so again our taxpayers money is paying to educate illegals as well.
Oops, meant haven't watched it yet. Will watch tonight.
love, love, love the show. hate american idol. this show is for real.
the only reason i entertained watching it was because of mark burnett and as usual he has such genious casting and editing. btw, don't know who anything about "metal" music but these performers make me like it. love marty and jd as performers. HATE JESSICA. susie is so nice and so emotional. it seems they all support each other and enjoy each others skills. regarding ty and bob marley, ty was excellent but he also lucked out on the song! bob marley was genious too and his music is very easy to listen to. i don't like 3/4 of what the others are given to sing but their performances make me love the music. dave navarro shines on this show, very gracious for the most part and letting the contestants down easy when they have to leave. he was great last night with brandon (?). sweet, sweet show. i am so impressed with everyone involved.
Take a break
I have felt this way many times while transcribing. I have actually taken a leave of absence to get over it. It does help.
a break...
You said that Hispanics did not gang rape and were not pedophiles - that it is always white men and of course, priests. You want to apologize to Catholics for accusing all priests for what a very few did? You honestly don't think other churches' religious leaders are pedophiles?

Give the rest of us a break and go educate yourself before you post on here.

BTW, how old are you? You sound like a 12-year-old with your puhleeez...........
