her post, it said something totally different (like she was asking what FTP stood for). Ah well, thanks for letting me know:)

OMG! This is too weird! You can't comprehend what I'm saying, so I won't waste your time!
anyone feel weird working at home all the time?
Who smiles at everyone way too much and tries too hard to make conversation? 
Pulled my hair out over this one

Waddle sigh . . . . . vital signs!!!


They pulled that on me at my previous job. I could
This makes me very glad we pulled out of the .....
house we originally put a deposit on a few weeks ago and went with another house.  The first house not only needed too much expensive exterior work, but I was more than concerned about the 2 COON HOUNDS who were kenneled in the backyard of the house next door.  Those dogs make the more Gawd-awful noise when they bark.  I'm sure they were hunting dogs and not pets.  Every time we were over there, they were in that kennel/run.  And we live in a cold climate, so my heart would be breaking in the winter watching those poor animals sitting out in -10 degree weather.
she pulled her husband's card....N/M

Credit accts pulled
This is not just happening with transcription- it is across the board. Just heard a consumer advocate here in town speaking about that yesterday, not on our end but just general public. The thought of employers is that if you cannot be responsible in your financial life, that your job will be the same. This advocatet was against it. Transcriptionists are not being picked out as a single group, lots more people at same place.
I donít think I pulled your chain, Missie
Was posting to Hayseed. Go back to your pond.

Hope this doesn't get pulled but try this link
it started with 13,000 abbreviations.

Yep, I hear ya! They pulled the bait and switch on me before I even got started!
Unreal - Recruiter promised one thing - got the instant contract through email with the exact opposite!  Bailed before I started! Sorry for your bait and switch.
I just pulled mine back out of storage - LOVE THEM!! nm
If one is a nonproduction job, managerial,etc wool can be easily pulled
Yikes...2-3 reports pulled per pay period here, not yearly..
sorry to see quality isn't a big issue at your company.
Pulled Pork Roast Sandwiches with Cabbage/Slaw
I would just take that baby and rub her down with some oil, vegetable, corn, olive, etc. and rub her down with some good seasons, like a little chili powder, garlic, salt, pepper and wrap her up good and tight in some aluminum foil. Git some good hickory wood chips and once the grill starts to cool off from the hottest point, then put that baby out there and let her slow cook for about 6 hours or so. Keep it wrapped up tight so the juices do not escape and if they do, get some worchestershire, oil etc. and baste her up. When a fork separates with the meat to just strands, she is ready for some bread and some slaw/cabbage with a lil vinegar added to the slaw and a lil bbq or A1 steak sauce with a lil mustard added together is better to me and there you go, a good ole southern pulled pork roast samwich!
if the post were pulled wouldn't there be no subject line to open? sm
They don't just delete the guts, the whole thing would disappear.
You don't "pick" prizes. Gift items that were donated by our sponsors are pulled from
Santa's Bag and you are notified of what your gift is.
That's not weird
You may think I'm weird. . .
But I find MT very relaxing. I used to work as a human resources manager and had a phone to my ear all day and people in my office complaining about their supervisors, complaining about their employees, and just plain complaining. My job had TONS of variety - like when one of the companies I worked for had a big layoff and I had a suicidal employee in my office telling me she was going to kill herself because she was being laid off. Frankly, you could pay me all the money in the world and I wouldn't go back to that. I think MTs great - more money would be nice, but other things are important, too.
another weird one..

I didn't transcribe this one, but a doc I worked for was telling us about this man in the ER with a gerbil (s/p?).... you know the little furry animal...stuck in his rectum.  Apparently the gerbil was put in his rectum using a paper towel cardboard tube-thingy and got stuck behind a gas bubble in his intestines!!!!

I don't know what ever happened to that man, but I hope he went for some serious counseling after that...

This is weird...
There are no menu keys at all, no view. I clicked on the small window and it made the page smaller. Now I have my menu keys, my tool bar, everything. When I enlarge the page back, then I lose everything again. If I keep it small, everything is okay.
Something that happens weird (sm)

When I'm typing along with my Instant Text along the bottom I'll occasionally (too much for my tastes) lose letters, especially when I type a period...I'll lose the last 2 or 3 characters of the previous word.  It's really bizarre.  I have no other problems with IT when typing in Word all by itself or any other program, so I assume it's just a problem when I'm using the ExText with IT.

I like going back into the old documents.  It takes a bit sometimes to load different things but it's good overall.

So weird

Its so weird, this happens to me too..

I wonder why though?

That's her and she is really weird...
So does this mean that now we have to be leery of posting on here as well in order to avoid even more scam artists than usual?
The thing for me is this sounds like you were working on site in the office with all this drama. How can you even see how much work someone else is doing if you are a virtual worker? And everything else sounds like the hospital politics of working in the hospital, strange that it could go on virtually.
how weird am I?

I won't give out my phone number, but yet I invited an internet friend of mine from Australia to come and stay with me for a couple of weeks while she was in the states. 

I'm happy to report that her visit was absolutely wonderful and she did not turn out to be a serial killer, as my daughter had portended :)

I must be weird
but I have always typed B with my left hand (6 with right).
Weird question for you MTs
Do you ever notice when you have your head phons on that sometimes your ears itch inside really bad, like you can feel water moving inside?  REALLY!
Weird question for you MTs
I used the stethoscope type ear phones and had the same experience with itching. Stopped using them and no problem anymore
The weird part is
is that everybody does care! I will continue to say this over and over and over again every night. Just don't look at it or post a reply to me if you don't like it. To me, this post is kind of like all of the MQ complainers who whine day in and day out. So, welcome to my world.

Did you know that the administrator of this forum weighs 375 pounds, has a beard, mustache and moles all over her face. It is insane.
Sounds weird.
Considering this new plan doesn't start until January 1, I don't see how people could be getting in trouble. Quit trying to stir up problems. Once again, this hasn't started yet and this person is already complaining and making things up that couldn't possibly have happened yet. The package sounds great to me and I am looking forward to it!
weird stuff
My daughters had pityriasis rosea on their legs. That was my first though when I read this post. In fact, Dorland's says it is "most often seen on the trunks, arms, or thighs."
Thank you! This is weird about the food. sm

My son has chronic eczema. He had so many food allergies when he was small. We were told he would "grow out of them" and, for the most part, he did. His major allergy was, and probably still is CORN.

Now everything you buy has corn syrup or cornstartch or corn something in it. Even the dyes in Kool Aid have a scientific number, which is actually a corn biproduct of some sort.

As you can see, I have done my homework about corn. My first time shopping for him "corn free" a decade ago took me almost 3 hours.

Unfortunately, cold weather aggravates his eczema and we live in the Northeast.  He has  been to the best dermatologist  in the state and has 4 meds that keep it under control. However, he's 15 and he goes and eats pizza with his friends (no pizza sauce ever made without corn syrup - you have to make your own out of tomatoes). McDonalds, etc, everything is loaded with it.  I only found 1 local breadmaker that actually has white bread without corn syrup in it.

Weird google ad ...
I clicked on the New MT board, and the Google ad (right above the messages) that popped up was "DEATH PENALTY"  ..... NOW I'm scared
Weird. Nobody has ever had me cap allergies anywhere. SM
I believe you guys, I really do o-- I've just never had to do it.
NO! NO! That is so weird. I literally just got off the
phone calling Frontline with the SAME THING and asking details on cat treatment then after I went out and bought some. I got a really nice girl! NO - dog flea products are often fatal to cats.  I have 2 adorable rescue kittens who are loaded with fleas. We have been waiting til they were old enough for Frontline, and I'm short of cash too, so was thinking of fudging with the dogs' Frontline that I have extra of!! Good luck! Meow!
Weird MT products
I am sure that with equality of hiring acts, ergonomics, handicap working issues, everything that can be thought of is out in cyberspace somewhere.  I think it is just a matter of surfing the web til you find these products.  I have seen one-handed keyboards that look similar to a joy sticks, as well as other configurations.
I can't find it. That is too weird!
I thought it was just me, but she is getting very weird...sm
it has gotten to where I just do not even want to watch her, as she cannot seem to talk straight, cries at the weirdest moments, etc. I heard a rumor they are looking to replace her with Jessica Simpson or Britney Spears next year. Don't know though that either of those people would be an improvement. lol.
That sounds weird.
First of all the hospital has a contract with IT dept. and setting you up would be no different than if you were set up in house.  Most MTs that are home based are set up in under an hour and it's all done through your computer.  Sounds like she had a change of mind.  Also, if your being paid by the hour - they can't change you to "per line."  I worked for a hospital and that's not how its done.  But you must reach a certain amount of lines per day, just like on site.
This is really weird, huh? So funny!
I always thought I was adopted...hmmmm...
weird x-rays
I used to work in a radiology department and we had quite a few patients with such "accidents". It was amazing how many people just happened to be naked and "fell" on mason jars, etc. I actually got to see some of the x-rays. Wild! I still think the AA batteries are pretty creative. Looks like it should have went with something else though. Wonder what made him decide on AA? Why not AAA? Or C? D? Okay, I'm getting silly, but really, how on earth do they decide to do that and how do they just pick some random object?
I don't think the Amish are Weird. They are

a kind, loving, pure, and forgiving community who look out for themselves. They are hard-working, self-reliant, and do not worship anything green.  My aunt married a Dunkard (a Mennonite sect) and I would stay with them every summer, and was taught many a lesson. I absolutely envy them (which, of course, is a forbidden word). LOL

For those who care, there are 2 funds set up through the Fulton Bank branches. One is called the Nickel Mines Children's Fund and the other is called the Roberts Family Fund. They are accepting donations until Nov. 1 and there is a committee of 9 Amish who will be taking care of the proceeds of the fund.  I'm not sure of any of the addresses, but for anyone who would care to donate, you can go to WGAL-TV on line and find the addresses and correct names of the fund.

Weird stuff
Years ago when working at a hospital, I typed a report where the doctor dictated that the gentleman was "entertaining himself" with a Real Lemon bottle. Needless to say, he had to be seen in ER. All of us about died on that one, wondering what SIZE Real Lemon bottle he used?
Weird Biology!
He must have some really weird ideas about biology, lol -- I have one doc that calls polycythemia "polycyclothemia" -- maybe it's a red blood cell mood disorder? hahahahah
That is weird! I dunno why?
Honey--not as weird as you think. sm
1 or 2 tbsp pure raw honey before going to bed. It is fantastic for sleep. I haven't slept this well in years. It also does help with weight loss. Check our th Hiburnation Diet.
No, but I have weird habits.
This may sound weird, but sometimes
If I totally get stumped. I start at the beginning of the sentence where the blank is, and then read it out loud trying to imitate the dictator's accent. Sometimes, it just kind of pops in your head what he is trying to say because you figured out how he is pronouncing it wrong.

Also, look at the rest of the report, too. Sometimes what you are looking for has been stated already somewhere in the report where you might have understood it already.

These both work for me sometimes.

I know, if you snuck up on me some night, you would think I am taking a language course or something. My son laughs at me, but it helps, it does.

Did anyone get a paystatement e-mail from ADP for a paycheck that we will be receiving sometime in the next few days? It is for a weird amount, under $75. I called payroll and they told me that I will be getting a letter explaining this check. Were very secretive.  DOES ANYONE know ANYTHING???
It is in NJ, which I've always found weird. nm
