burka thing or whatever you call it.  I can't have direct sunlight on my skin anymore anyway (melanoma survivor).  I would fit right in except for the freckles, green eyes and strawberry hair.  I did hear there are very good horseback riding places and that would be a big draw for me of course, as I would be a real cowgirl if I could.  Just don't live in the right place or time for that  matter.

I wouldn't suggest wearing them while you work.
Magnets and computers don't go well together. 
I normally wouldn't mind at all but we have.sm
and THAT I do mind......thinks he's a King.....no one else does *rofl*
I'd still settle for 5 ft 2 in. Of course I wouldn't mind

be 5'6"+ and having legs that just wouldn't quit, but then I wouldn't be the person I've become and I much prefer who I am to who I might have been. 

Now THAT's a doc I wouldn't mind seeing! How thoughtful! nm

Yes, she should have been wearing a
Wearing off
I've had that problem in the past also. I found that carefully painting the keys with a clear nail polish works wonders.

What does wearing a vest have to do with it?
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.
I can't stand wearing shoes.
Sometimes I'll wear socks in the winter if my feet get cold.
At this point I would seriously consider wearing pantyhose and going TO a job.

I said I wouldn't but this business doesn't appear to be getting better, just worse for those of us involved.

Letters wearing off on keyboard
I admit, I purchased a very inexpensive keyboard, but the letters have worn off within a month! In looking at other keyboards at different stores, it looks like they all have the same kind of stuck-on letters that would wear off pretty quickly. Can anyone recommend a keyboard that retains its letters for a very long time with a lot of use? Or has anyone tried the stickers they make to cover the keys?
I've been wearing a splint that's sorta like a retainer...sm
for years that my orthodontist made for me.  I've had it replaced about every 5 years or so.  It works great!   The funny thing is that I pick at him that when he put me in braces at age 12 he never dreamed that 30 years later I'd STILL be coming to see him.    I do have fun when I go see him because invariably there's some pre-teen or teenager who asks "so how long have you been a patient?" and when I tell them 30 years they look horrified.  Then I explain that I was in braces for 18 months, retainers for a year and then returned for TMJ problems at age 20 and have been in and out every few years since then.  They always give a big sigh of relief then! 
Chill out, all she is doing is wearing a color she obviously likes -
and black in high school, some pretty wild clothes too. Doesn't sound like she is going goth or anything. Lots of girls wear black, nothing wrong with it. Remember pick your battles and don't blow the little things out of proportion.....as for rebelling I would not consider this anywhere close to rebelling.
I've been wearing them for a year while I work with no....sm
problem.  They aren't that strong.
Quit wearing sexy clothes when you
Hhhmm, and what color suit are you wearing
Whatcha wearing and who you're emailing

I had read someone's complaints about complaining yesterday, while browing the board.  I got an email from one of my girlfriends just now, telling me she had been called in for receiving too many emails and given a 90 day verbal warning.  I used to work for a company that told me I made too many personal phone calls and worried I was not dressed professionally enough.  I used to have to pick up the CEO's cleaning and make sure all the buttons were on his shirts and there were no wrinkles.  Filling him a pitcher of water on his desk and leaving no fingerprints on a glass to go with it.  Let's remember that, today, as we sit in our sweats, being comfortable, or if the phone rings and we visit for 10 minutes, or if we get a cute email and want to send it to friends.  No boss towering over us......at least in our home. 

Pick him up wearing a trenchcoat and spiked heels.
Never thought of wearing scrubs, but if you're comfy, sm

that's all that matters.  I did the heels and hose thing for over 20 years when I worked in an office and/or hospital, now my "uniform" consists of a t-shirt and shorts until it gets really cold, then I begrudgingly give up my shorts and go with sweat pants, although not the kind with the elastic at the ankle ... hate those.  I'm tall, so usually most pants end up looking like capri pants anyway, so guess I should just cave in and buy capris. 

A lot of people think because I work at home, I sit in jammies all day, but that idea doesn't even appeal to me.  Plus, first thing in the morning, I have to walk my doggie, and I really do not think the neighbors need or want to see me walking around in my PJs.  But it is a personal choice ... if jammies or scrubs or even typing in the nude make you happy and productive, I say go for it.  :-)

My professionalism is not determined by what I wear.  The UPS or Fed Ex guy would probably fall over dead if I answered the door in heels and pearls.  :-)   But they both comment on how happy I always seem, and that must be a reflection of my love for my job and the comfort of being in the environment I choose to create for myself.  :-)

Yikes .. this was supposed to be a short little post supporting the lady who wanted to wear scrubs.  Guess it's not only the docs I type for who are long-winded ... oops!

Happy Saturday everyone!  

I just had the surgery and my doc has me wearing Occunomix Neoprene gloves
I found them only on-line and at a surgical supply store, but they are great as far as I am concerned. 
Your mind was in the gutter up there with sauteed stool, too. Would you please take your mind out of

Wouldn't that mean that you simply wouldn't have to print out everything?

Thank you ghost! So true! So true! More than one person!
Yer crackin' me up! True, true, true! nm
ROFL!! true, so true! nm
true, true but out of about 90 flicks....1 or 2...nm

true, true - but what you see as arrogance...sm

I think a lot of people go the extreme -

so, if I had to be one way or the other (being a humble extremist myself...*LOL*), I'd rather have too much self-esteem than not enough (been there, done that the first 30 years!!! *L*).  And I am a truly humble person, been recognized for just that.....but because of *been there, done that* - and all sorts of therapies (not drug therapies), some end up the other way.  Oh well, this was a fun couple of posts - so I thought.

Gave me much to chew on :)  Have fun!  

True but to say there are no good MTs not true.
ROFLMAO!!!! so true! so true!
Everybody sees it but her, though! I love it! Thanks for the giggle! ":^)
Would you mind ...
sharing that site with me? You can email me personally at kathy.eberle@gmail.com. I did get that very email and would like to know what everyone else has to say! Thanks!

LOL! Never mind - I see it now.
I was sure it wasn't there a minute ago! 
Keep in mind, please......
That if a company has more than, say, 10 accounts, that the recruiters just might not KNOW how difficult an account is. When you get a requisition for account #67, there's no telling whether it's the best account on the planet, or the worst.
Don't mind
Actually don't mind the lower income right then, because I am selling my house and can afford to lose a little, knowing that after the first of the year or so I can get my line count back up.
keep in mind
In addition to the good comments made above you must also be aware that if you are going to a program that may upgrade occasionally and is not static you may well run the risk of losing your autotext entries.  If you are really good about backing up your files, good for you and no problems really, but if you are like the rest of us and forget more than you remember to back up .. you could have one horrible day when you see the file not convert or some such ugly thing!
If you don't mind (sm)
your money being used to support anti-reproductive choice terrorism, go ahead and join.
Please keep in mind
how good you are feeling since beginning the drug, and that all drugs are very individual in how they event anyone.  You really should not make a decision for yourself regarding some one's experience.  
Never mind...duh
Do you mind me asking...
what company do you work for and are they hiring? I have been an Editor for 15 years and am having a hard time find a good company to work for. Thanks
Please keep in mind that many
of the people on this site work at home. Some have forgotten (some never knew) how to interact with others in a courteous and professional manner.
Please keep in mind (sm)
that he will tell you anything you will want to hear. One thing I had to ask myself when I was going thru this was, is this someone that I would want my daughter married to? I repeated that question to myself any time I was tempted to "try again."
where at and of what...if you don't mind my asking...TIA (NM)

I have! You can do anything you set your mind to!
There are many, but the ones that come to mind first are...
I love him because of the way he loves me. He's not fake, pretentious or condescending. He's funny, talented, and is a true gentleman in every sense of the word. Besides that, he's not afraid to go to the store JUST for a box of tampons ;) ... He's the absolute best and I've never been happier.
I do not mind either
Usually, if I am visiting at my mother's house and need to go online, I will ask but it is not a big deal & vice versa. But it all depends on what they want to use the computer for. When we ask each other to use the computer, it is always just to quickly look something up online & it never involves using that person's computer programs or going into their files or anything like that - just the Internet.
never mind!
was able to recover - Whew!
I don't mind .... sm

If young and older American men and woman love America so much that they are willing to go to a for foreign land to protect my liberties with their lives - I certainly will assume the responsibility of freedom for all by letting the government see who I call.  Frankly, my phone call list is very boring I am afraid. 

So to those who want to make a big deal over nothing (as long as you have nothing to hide), remember who is giving up . .  an easier way of making a living (so that you can sit back, fat and sassy) . .  an 8 hour work shift five days a week making far less than us (so you can make the money you feel you deserve and are entitled to). .  being separated from their families (while we are all getting ready to celebrate mother's day with our families) . . .all because of the love for OUR country and THEIR fellow citizens.

STOP - LOOK- LISTEN - Is it your brother, your father, your uncle, your sister, your mother, your aunt, your fiance, your neighbor, your life long friend? - we all are God's precious children. 

God Bless to all of our military and to you and your family - Pray for a United America.



I don't mind at all
If they do this and find terrorists in this country and can stop them before they do something else horriffic, I don't mind at all.
I don't mind at all
I think you have misunderstood my post. I was just saying that one MT might make $16,000 per year at 8 cpl and another MT might make double or triple that. Maybe even more. Being an experienced MT I know that it can depend on many factors, that is what I was trying to express. I'm sorry if you misunderstood.

Realistically, I don't think a new MT or even an experienced MT should anticipate $100K per year. So, if you still want my opinion, my guess would be that at 8 cpl, 40 hour week, you would probably make $30,000 to $35,000. Good luck!
I don't mind your asking--sm
as far as I know, they are still together. They got married one month after his financial obligation to me was ended. It took me a while to get over the anger, because I never even saw it coming, but I guess the anger was mostly at me, for letting myself get into that situation in the first place. I had to forgive him for what he did and the way he did it, and I had to forgive myself for being blind in the first place. I prayed alot and God took me through it. I give thanks every day for what He has given me in return. I AM happy though. Thanks for asking.
really do you mind
if I ask how productive you are with it?  Are you editing or transcribing or both?  What is a good hourly average lines per hour?  Thanks!
Oh, OK.....I did not know that, but ... please sm (if you don't mind)

If you are on a regular page in IE, say on this page rigth here, if you hit ctrl F3 do you get the productivity tools?  Maybe I am wrong in what my problem is.  When I try to log into Bayscribe from the log in page I get an error that says "No such Account.BPTVer = [].  My account has been checked by two others who can get it, but I can't. 

Thanks again!  It is so nice of you to try to help.  I very much appreciate it.
