Another example of the poor wages and long
hours MTing is a waste of time.
Just hope he doesn't end up getting her pregnant!
Then she'll have him for the next 18 years whether he wises up or not.
I hope that doesn't happen to me...

and was told they would still have work for me afterwards...I really like this new place and am only working for them right now. 

Do you think you can e-mail me initials or a hint to who did that, so I know to stay away? Were you just one day locked out of the system or just no work in your general work pool? That's craziness on their part. Talk about feeling used.

...feeling a little nervous now.

Let's hope the car doesn't come back...
with every hidden nook and cranny filled with drugs! Your sis and BIL have a screw loose to let allow a slacker child, who happens to be an adult, do what he wants with a car they pay for. JMHO, so don't bother bashing me, it won't change my mind!
hope this doesn't happen to you
Our company decided not to do direct deposit any longer because of Indymac. 
I learned a long time ago to now talk
Hope this doesn't get pulled but try this link
it started with 13,000 abbreviations.

Good grief, hope it doesn't have too many changes sm
If so, we should get our money back on the 2nd, geez! Enough is enough.Some of the 2nd is wrong anyway, leave us alone!
I need to talk with someone who has experience with MT while long-haul trucking.
Hubby wants to change jobs and do a partnership and long-haul truck.  Don't know if this is a mid-life crisis thing or what.  If you have done MT work while on the road for extended periods please contact me - good or bad.  I would want to still do MT.  I know people have RV'd and done MT at the same time.  Thanks.
just hope he doesn't start a new trend--ewww!
I can't stand it if I accidentally forget to put mine on. I can usually tell pretty quickly if I do. Just not comfortable to me (or anyone else around probably).
I hope that student doesn't read this board. sm

I don't think this was a good place to look for a laugh at a student's expense, even though I suspect you weren't intending to be mean or condescending. We were all there once.

After 30 years in this business, much of it in QA and QA management, I've gone back to transcription and I am still learning things from my QA people. Humiliating at times, yes! But its all a learning process.

I hope he doesn't get voted back in either because worse than Eric
is CRAZY Ivette. I LOVE Howie and want him to win. Nobody else but Howie has entertained me on this show. So cute and funny when he pretended he was going to kiss Beau. W/O Howie, I can't watch it even if Kaysar comes back. Don't like that entire Cappy groupie scene. Do you think CBS will bring back a firefighter hero instead of an Iraq guy for ratings though? I know we are supposed to decide but I doubt that is true in the end.
It doesn't really matter to me as long as they do
it right.
I hope I hang in long enough to get familiar with account
mostly not medical error, this doctors wants it this way, that doctor wants it that way, and with a base of 700 doctors, that's hard to remember. You can add headings, then when you add heading, they delete them... next time, I don't add heading and they add it... suppose to type names as dictated (if spelled), otherwise type "the patient"... next they correct it and put "the patient" where I typed the name, etc.   Does one EVER get used to all the rules/regulations?
True, but this has been a long time in coming. I truly hope something
For S.P., if you still check out this board, it looks like things are starting to happen. I hope you're still hangin in there! Keep the faith!
poor, poor management
Line count stealing, no help, rude management, you name it SS has it if it is bad!!!!!!! Run, run, save your life.
Eewwww... you don't talk like an MT, you talk like mangement. Ick. (n/m)
I hope this applies to companies like Medquist. I hope there
isn't a way they can get around it. I REALLY hope.
Why are YOU attacking HER? Just because she doesn't want kids, doesn't mean she needs a psychi
Unbelievable!  See what I mean about my experience versus your experience?  TransTech absolutely has the most knowledgeable and nicest techs I've ever worked with and believe me, I've worked with A LOT.
Gosh, is this about you? nm
Oh gosh! May I ask.....
how you found that info out?  I hit their web site and it made no mention of anything off shore related.......  ID like to know how to find that stuff out on my own! 
Gosh - thank you all so much! (sm)

I am very grateful to those who took the time to graciously answer my question.  I am now armed with information and dangerous!  Won't be getting this particular office to jump on board in the near future, though.  I just found out that they don't even have access to the internet.  Thanks again!  Loo 




I sure hope you enjoy it as much as I do mine!!!  Make sure you can send it back if you are not 100% delighted! 

Let me know how it goes.

oh my gosh, I had one just the other
day. It was a consult and was 98 minutes long, yes 98 minutes. Well after typing for 3 minutes I was "put on hold" and got to listen to crappy music. I did short forwards for a bit and then just went to the end of the 98 minutes and did a few backwards and, sure enough, it was all music; 3 minutes of typing and 95 minutes of crappy music!!
Oh my gosh ne!

I was just reading your thread about the C-phone and lost dictation and saw what you went through 2 years ago.  I just wanted to say that I'm so sorry.  I'm glad that you and your sons are okay.  I can't imagine going through what you are.

Although I know nothing about C-phone, work gets lost all the time and work can be reassigned, I'm sure.  Please don't be so hard on yourself.  Hang in there.


I really needed to hear that today. My job is so low paying and so thankless and I am very conscientious so even to get a thank you from a stranger is touching me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Oh my Gosh!!!
Oh my gosh, its not just me!! I used to
love to stop by MT chat about once a week, to browse all the great and informative posts, knowing I would never see the trolling and ego bashing that runs prevalent here.  I was SHOCKED to see just a few old timers over there now, just about blocking every poster who dared ask a question or make a comment.  Smashed!! I don't know where the usual mods are, but its very obvious and I am avoiding that place now like the plaque. Always expected more class and better behavior over there.  Guess I have to pay for mT daily?  So sad.
Oh my gosh; we get it already.

Oh my gosh...THANKS!!!

Gosh...I have so many...
But here are a few that really bug me most of all:

"...contemporaneously read by me..."

"Subsequently however."

"Otherwise again as well the patient had XYZ as well."

Let me not forget these beauties:
"has got"
"has also"
"was subsequently was"
"primarily secondary"

I guess if your doc can start every sentence with "at this moment" then I should let mine say "at this point here in the emergency room upon arrival..." lol
Oh my gosh, yes!!!!

Back in 1981 when I graduated from high school I went to the local technical school (now community college) and went to secretarial school.  Yes, they called us secretaries then.  When I graduated the program I got hired by the school in their word processing lab.  They had a word processing program that taught the different WP machines then - Wang, Dictaphone, Lanier, Radion.  Some of them had the big floppies, and those were the bomb.  The Radion still used the old tapes.  We got one of the new IBM word processing machines - can't remember the name - and boy, were we the schnitz!!!!! 

I remember vividly a conversation I had with someone.  I told them that in 5 years those machines were going to be obsolete because of this new fangled invention called a personal computer that had just come out that could be programmed with different stuff, not just word processing.


Gosh no
I had enough of that all winter! I'm thankfully beginning to perk up, but we don't have snow here.... flowers blooming, 60-degree weather, fruit trees blooming. I will keep you all in my prayers and hope your mood gets better very soon. It is so hard to do this job and deal with depression!
Gosh, at what point will it be enough? sm
You'll have costs that go with that amount of work --- loss of energy, loss of family/friend time, actual wear and tear on your physical self, etc.

You need to decide what is enough and then live by it.

My opinion, anyway.
Gosh, I don't know but that was not the point

of this post.   Yes, I have had to deal with "customer service" reps at different times and usually they seem to have an Indian accent and, quite honestly, I will NOT waste my time trying to understand them.....If I have to take my time to just try to understand what they are saying I tell them straight out "I cannot understand a word you are saying and please let me speak to someone that has more command of the English language"......that usually does work! 

And of course, it is very difficult for people to change their accents.  I would think that most Americans are able to understand most "accents" here in the U.S. including New Yorkers, Bostonians and even us good ole southerners!!!!  English, the last time I looked, was the official language of our country.  It is frustrating enough now a'days to have to stay on hold for up to 30 minutes for a service call but THEN to have to speak with someone you can't even understand is just ridiculous!  This is only common sense....think about it!  Changes must be made for the better and, believe, it will happen when the American people have had all they can take...and the time is soon! 

Good gosh!
I love this platform as well, but NEVER EVER came close to your line count! That is absolutely insane! Please share what account(s) you work on and what office you work for.

PS - Do you or have you ever had carpal tunnel?!?!?!?!
Oh, my gosh! This is GREAT!!!...
I think I'm going to like this better than Sylcount!!!  It looks terrific! 
Oh gosh, I have too - and beer. nm
gosh, who are you talking about?
sounds like a management problem. not greedy mt.
Gosh, you must be one of the greedy MTs

Oh, my gosh! That is too funny!

Great way to start off a Monday! 

I have an ESL who takes the 's' out of effusion.  Took me forever to figure out what he was saying because "pleural" wasn't coming out very recognizable, either!   Gotta love this job!

Oh, my gosh. That is too funny. I
"my original words of wisdom about judging"
Gosh, you really should get some sleep
I always fear I will make an error when I am feverish and sleepy. I think the boss would understand. The symptoms will subside more quickly more likely if you get plenty of rest. Also, less chance of secondary bacterial infection in the lungs. You may want an antibiotic with strep. But, you be the judge.
Oh my gosh! You're right! sm
I had no trouble reading that post.  That's so funny!
oh gosh, that is definitely not the case
the terminology were very, very easy. That I can absolutely post and say with confidence. It was the way the doctor jumped around in his dictation and stating "put this here" "put that there" I didn't know what was a heading and what wasn't. His reports were 5 pages long. But the terminology was EASY. NO QUESTION about it.
Gosh, took me at LEAST 6 months
of 40+ hours a week to even start feeling mildly comfortable with the whole thing.  Even now, if I try to learn a new account, I get butterflies in my gut worried I'm gonna muck something up and tend to go a lot slower and double or even triple check everything....but that's just my personality about everything in my life in general.  I'm a freak like that ;-)
oh gosh. I would have had to step away for
hours probably..... I do ER reports and had 4 bad ones in a row earlier this week - makes me really count my blessings.  My toes curl typing procedures I have had or my children have had - I've never done an OP note such as you described... I don't think I could handle at all.
Oh my gosh, so funny
Although some of it was user error.  How many of us were screaming "upper case I" at the screen whenever he said capital I.  Too funny though.  The best part is the docs will not even check, they will just talk and let us try to figure out what they were trying to say. 
Gosh, who was that directed at?
I had a child on Cobra before as a bridge between college and her getting a job- oh, 5 or 6 months, very expensive I remember. Who lost their husband? I gained bunch of weight when the thyroid went. Weight definitely can be health related.
Gosh, sorry to hear about....sm
your problem. I think mine may be different though. I can't block it, because it says my own email address is sending these things to me. If you put your cursor over the sent "from address" it has my own email address with my husband's name attached to my email....weirdest thing I've ever seen. I can only think that it's a virus, but my Norton hasn't caught anything. I don't know what to do, because I can't block my own email from coming into my mailbox, because I send reminders to myself all the time, and can't block my husband's name either.

Thanks for responding, though, I appreciate it (sorry about your hubby, though)
