Since when is it name-calling to call a bad deed? Let the scammer take YOUR lines and

Posted By: GOSH on 2005-07-03
In Reply to: What does name calling accomplish. It seems like you and another - Lets get real

see how you like it.

Cheating -- it's what people ARE not just what people do. It means they do not believe the rules apply to them and they ignore them for their own personal gain.

I could care less what you think if you're wanting to pat her on the back and say, "It's okay; we won't say anything ugly to you for your ugly actions." You go ahead and play Sunday School teacher. That's fine for you.

A cheat, a jerk, a scam artist, a THIEF. That's what a cherrypicker is, PERIOD.

Go on to Sunday School this morning...hope you feel better.

    Calling all ICs. Just curious. How many lines and reports do you average per day at

    whatever company you are working at currently? I'm wondering because it seems like I work A LOT (I should actually start counting hours, but I don't) and at the end of the evening my line count is so low and it will say 8 or 9 reports, even though it feels like I have done about 20 or so (this is DQS, but you can answer with whatever co. you work for).


    Thanks so  much!

    What do you call it when you do your 1100 lines in 4 hours? sm
    and I call it normals and I call it lots of canned dictation.

    Unfortunately, I am employee and I can't take the rest of the day off. Had this Saturday, had this today. IT NEVER HAPPENS and I have had it twice in a week.

    Looking for my super streak to end now, go back to being a typing machine on a chase for work.
    AHDI allows scammer because THEY are
    I had to re-read your message. You are really a scammer, probably
    .in min many subject areas......
    Well that is real mature, calling me a rimrod. Why the name calling?
    I am not telling everyone to leave this site. I gave info about MTSTars.net to let us, who have been on this site MTStars.com for many years to make up their own minds. YESTERDAY, I never got a straight answer about the owner of this board and now I know, but I was in the middle of asking questions earlier and my posts kept getting deleted. I was not calling anyone names, like YOU have and I am not insuling anyone like YOU have. NOT offshoring? Well he is from Pakistan am I right? I still do not know the truth. Can you supply me with more information about Dr. Ahmed?
    Another scammer - Robin Hall (Four Seasons Transcription) sm
    Robin Hall CONTINUES to scam MTs and get away with it. I get emails weekly from MTs who cannot get their paychecks from her. I find it absolutely incredible that she can continue to get away with this, but she does. After she had to leave here, she moved over to guru.com. I contacted them and warned them about her, but she wound up scamming some people there and has since been banned. Kind of an interesting aside - heard from a reliable source that Robin was giving hospitals a false Tax ID#. Go figure!!
    But once the deed is done...
    The single mom takes on the brunt of the responsibility. It's not the kid's fault his mom made a mistake when picking his father. Sometimes it is the best thing for the children if the home was unsafe, etc.
    Name on deed
    Are you on the loan?  Are you prepared that is something happens, divorce, or death that you will have no equity in the house, no place to live and will probably have to move immediately?  So if you are paying anything towards the payment even with working and paying other bills, you are not entitled to anything should you split or he dies.   So be prepared for that.  But again, I could be wrong so I would definitely check with a lawyer but I would think that if your name was on the mortgage loan, then it would have to be on the deed and vice-a--versa if there is a mortage loan.   May I ask why you don't want to be on the deed????
    But if you are on the deed with "right of survivorship" all of it goes to you and it does not have to go through propate. 
    contract to deed
    Not sure but think it means the seller has to give 15 days notice in writing and able to prove default in payments and a date is set for closing shortly thereafter for settling the mortgage. If the buyer cannot come up with the financing to purchase from the seller, the seller by law is allowed to keep all monies paid thus far and the buyer's only recourse at the point is court.

    I may be wrong but I think this is how it goes. Good luck.
    Have you ever tried to do a good deed

    and have it come back and slap you in the face?   I tried to do something, at a significant financial consequence to me, and now I'm the bad guy and I've got a complete stranger e-mailing me telling me everything I did wrong.  I know I should just blow it off, but I can't.  I trashed the e-mail and then deleted it from my trash and I don't store them on the server.  I didn't feel like I owed this person an explanation, but then I wanted to tell them nicely that they don't know the whole story and I made the best decision for all parties.


    Good deed...
    Certainly have - been there and back many times. I think everyone has, except for a few very self-absorbed people I am related to who have never lifted a finger to help anyone in their entire lives.

    When I had to work through the emotions you are feeling now, I just let myself fantasize about what I would say to the people involved. It helped me work through the hresentment and hurt I felt, but I didn't do or say anything to another person that could have just made things worse.
    doing a good deed
    I can't believe you did all that for her and she didn't even thank you! She must be a piece of work. I cannot believe how she can be so selfish not to realize all the work and expense you went through for her. And to then keep it up by not wanting you at the baby shower? She is one sick person. God help her husband and future children esp. if she treats them like she treated you. YOU are the HERO in all of this; just remember that. I cannot believe how greedy and rude people are becoming any more. Scarier, they continue to multiply. Life is hard enough without having to deal with people like her. Drop her; she does not deserve your friendship at all. What is the matter with WalMart? It shouldn't matter where you got ANYTHING for the shower.
    Put your name on the deed, just not the mortgage
    talk to a good loan officer at a bank about the difference.
    in deed (no message)
    Sorry.. I meant DEED... I guess we are all a little
    slippery with our fingers tonight.. "dead", "greatful"...
    My response was to "deeply saddened". There are a lot of reasons to be sad in the world today; it's the thought that counts. To say that a company should never reduce their bonuses is unrealistic. It happens in all industries. My husband used to get a turkey at Thanksgiving -- now nothing. He also used to get a huge bonus at Christmas - last year he got laid off.
    Home deed question. sm
    Hubby and I are moving to a house. I have reservations about putting my name on deed, which I would care not to go into. Don't know if I'm giving away any rights or not to house.

    Wonder what are pros and cons if I put name on deed versus if I do not. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.
    In some states, if buying house and married, both names are legally required to be on deed. (nm)
    got the "phone call" -- get this, MQ has hired a bunch of telemarketers to call all of us to

    we received our "incentive packet."  They don't even have the wherewithall to contact us personally.   These are temp-agency hired telemarketers sitting around a boiler room making sure we're reading our mail.... told him it don't pertain to me because I've been demoted from FT to SE.... He said, "yes, the letter is vague, but it does pertain to FT as well as SE...." yeah right, we'll see.

    *70 will disable call waiting unless you are expecting a call and want it on (nm)
    Aaahhhh, now I get it. Gross lines vs. Character lines. I guess I've just been conditioned to
    think in terms of character lines.  One of the perils of working as an IC for somebody who defines what a line is versus owning your own company and defining it yourself.  After working for someone else for 15 years, maybe it's time to bust out on my own.
    Gift of gab is a gift in deed. Not having it has cost me dearly.
    I became an MT because of my interest in medical field, fascination with the work and yes, a lack of social skills. I really did think that my work would speak for me.
    On-call requires on-call compensation by law
    This field gets more disgustingly grotesque daily.
    That is a lot of work/lines for 2 people. I do 3000 lines per day sm
    if you times that by 30 days that only comes to 90K lines a month, that is working 7 days a week including weekends. I don't think 2 people can handle that.
    900 lines is below 1100 lines, where the bonus starts.
    But YOU are the one doing all the name calling
    She simply asked you to knock it off....as so many of us would like to echo.  Get over yourself and quit knocking everyone who posts on the board.  There are some of us who would like to be informed and knowledgeable about our sister MTs and our industry as a whole.  If you are not one of them, don't waste your time or our time by coming to this board at all, okay?  Your whining is annoying
    Hey, who is this guy calling old! How
    Name calling
    Name Calling or Substitutions of Names or Moral Labels:

    This technique attempts to arouse prejudices in an audience by labeling the object of the propaganda campaign as something the target audience fears, hates, loathes, or finds undesirable.

    Dangers inherent in name calling: In its extreme form, name calling may indicate that the propagandist has lost his sense of proportion or IS UNABLE TO CONDUCT A POSITIVE CAMPAIGN INTELLIGENTLY.

    Before using this technique, the propagandist must weigh the benefits against the possible harmful results.
    Have you tried calling?
    I know when I had A problem they were able to answer my questions. Have you tried calling them? :)
    If he keeps calling you, tell him

    him for harassment.  I'm pretty sure he would not have handed the title over like that without his money.  If she owed him money, where is his proof? receipts showing balance due? Please do not hand over money to someone who may well be a heartless opportunist.

    I'm very sorry for your loss.  Be well.

    calling you?
    they say that girls in the trailer park go round the outside, round the outside.  I wouldn't be bragging about servicing the neighborhood's husbands. 
    No need for name-calling here.
    The tone of this chain is not malicious nor judgemental.  Please don't come on here carelessly calling people names.  This woman had a life or death situation on her hands and handled it the best way she could.  She came here to help another human being in trouble by giving her valuable first-hand information.  In other threads, this malicious tone may be okay, but not here, okay?  Please just stay away if you can't bear the comments, okay?  These people are hurt enough already.  Thank you.
    OK without the name calling....sorry
    So do you think a nationalized health plan is a good thing for this country?
    No name-calling, please. NM
    Gross lines include all lines containing
    printable characters, so a full line and a line with one word on it are charged equally. Straight lines are basically the same as gross lines, but with this method of counting the blank lines are counted as well (again, equally). I have only had one company pay this way, and they are a middle man. I would think the charge would be about the same as for gross lines, and that not too many offices will want their lines counted this way (the one I worked on was probably inherited from someone who had counted the lines that way, so just continued).
    The norm is 1 minute = 10 lines; 10 min = 100 lines - sm
    granted this varies per dictator. More lines if a fast talker, less if a slow talker.
    I went from 2400 lines to 1800 lines

    a day when I switched from clinic (through an MTSO)  to hospital work. Not only was the clinic work easier with more macros (and less providers to learn, 12 vs 300+), but I was typing in straight Word (as opposed to Softmed/Chart Script).  So you see, it really varies depending upon the type of work as well as the platform used. That said, I am so much happier typing the 1800 lines per day (I make over $15 per hour plus an incentive for any lines in excess of 1200 per day) plus a great health package/benefits, AND approximately 5 weeks of paid time off per year.  In my opinion, hospitals really are the best employers WHEN they appreciate the work we do.

    My advice for you is not to judge a job by any one criterion but rather the entire picture. The 'extra's can really add up.

    Good luck in your job!

    Which is the one where they are sc*&ing us the standard lines or the qualified lines? SM
    Mine show up as STD when I pull up my transcription log.  But I see now there is STD/QT....  So which is the one where they are ripping us off, standard or qualified?  Need to know.  I am about to switch companies and I will not do if they are actually taking lines from me.  Thanks guys. 
    What does name calling accomplish. It seems like you and another
    poster calling a person names is no better than the cherry picker.
    Why the name calling? You are sad. The comment sm
    was made because he was for spheris and the outsouring they do, and yes they don't advertise jobs here because they outsoure. You are the one that needs to do some soul seardhing and grow up.
    I don't think ANY of the name-calling or slurs is okay.

    It seems like as soon as someone posts something against the "prevailing opinion," it's okay to call names and make all kinds of nasty remarks about them personally.  Not just in this topic, but in many others.  There seems to be an attitude of "they said something bad first, so it's okay to say the most hateful and hurtful thing I can think of."

    I disagree with your post above, but I certainly wouldn't call you a name or imply that you are deficient, lacking, or stupid in some way for having that opinion.

    I don't personally think the "single mother" is relevant to the topic at all.  It's a bad thing to have happened REGARDLESS of the person's age, marital status, or number of children, but I also don't think it's EXTRA bad because she's a single mother - and I don't think that's how she meant it.

    ? about "cold calling."

    For those of you who have acquired accts through cold calling, what do you suggesting saying?  I did get one account this way, but cant remember how I managed.  Any tips appreciated!



    Florida girl!

    who's whining here besides you. i'm calling

    re: Susie-LD Calling
    This is true--we were all told to switch to a LD carrier by our transcription company to use for dictation and many of us were contacted by the phone company withing 4 to 5 months of doing this and told that we could not use it for business purposes. They actually called the numbers and knew that we were calling various places for dictation so some of use were switched back to using the 800 numbers
    You are calling me perverted
    when you come on this board with all of this stupid, juvenile crap. You really need to grow up.
    Who are you calling stupid?
    Well, if they are soooo stupid, explain how they are the largest transcription company in the US?

    Perhaps you know something about the packet that we don't, because in case you didn't know this - NO ONE GOT THEIR PACKET YET! DUH - Talk about stupid - look in the mirror.

    How do YOU know so much, huh?

    PS - While looking in the mirror, go brush those yellow-stained teeth, comb that nasty wirey, brillo-pad hair, squeeze some of this nasty whiteheads, and get a face lift - because ain't no one want someone like you working for them!
    I agree with you about calling 911. sm

    Have it checked out.

    Here's what fortunately happened to my stubborn sister.

    She just happened to luck out because she was in a room full of people at a big birthday bash for a friend. She didn't feel good, a bit of a nagging headache, but thought it was no big deal until her head started to ache so bad that she dropped into a chair. She was about 5 blocks from the hospital at the time and someone called rescue. She had a brain aneurysm rupture, but she made it. After a month in the hospital she is "normal" with only a slight problem with short term memory.

    The "moral" of this story is that if my stubborn sister had been home by herself, thinking, "maybe something is wrong" she would have taken an aspirin and went to lie down.

    Don't mess with chest pain. Better to find out that you've pulled a muscle or something.

    "I am trying to tell him he needs to go to the ER." This is a quote from OP who is now calling
    is calling, and then my phone co....sm
    My phone company went and put voicemail on my line when I got DSL (didn't ask for voicemail) so now I use that voicemail as my secretary.  I can first *see* who is calling on caller ID and then NOT take the call, and they get thrown into voicemail.  After working hours, I call them back.  If it is an emergency, I CAN take the call.  It has helped me tremendously.  If they leave no message, they never get a call back.  *LOL*  (No message left on voicemail to me merely equates to *not important*!!) 
    I know its hard! I have one calling me and
    another poster names. Well, actually calling me the name I call myself! ha! But I think the insult is supposed to be that no one else will hire me!! Isn't that just so illogical? Its unreal. I know its hard - sometimes one is afraid that these ignoramus types will think if they get the last word its cause they sure made their point! But we all have to realize that its just not to feed them - don't feed the trolls! Don't feed the trolls...
    Have you tried calling the pound?
    Wonder what they'd do with the goat?

    I was visiting my MIL this week, and there were three beagles running around her yard. They kept coming up on her porch, so I led them out to the road. They followed me quite happily. Then somebody drove up in a truck and just observed us. I wandered over to ask if he was missing any beagles, and he was the dog catcher! He had been called about FOUR beagles. I just told him they weren't mine, but they sure were friendly! He asked if they'd come to me when called, and I said SURE! But then I left him to call the dogs himself, LOL. I can't help it if dogs don't like him. :oD
