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.

    Yep, had a distant relative going through some depressed times and did just that
    E-mail says I have been left 1/4 million bucks by distant relative. Do you think this is a scam?
    I could really use the money.
    LOL!! Exactly..maybe i should give you a you go girl!! NOT
    I think I'd just give her back the 3 cans of cat food ... lol nm

    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.

    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.
    Personally, I think lawsuits only give lawyers more money
    What's wrong with "no gifts please" and then if some DO give money or
    Give the SH people a chance to fix it before you spend more money.
    They steal your money and then send you a check and you are thrilled. Give me a break.
    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 it time...
    It just means your family is doing what it should - evolving and growing - plus more MEEEE time!
    Give yourself some time.
    I don't know if MT schools tell their students but it will take a couple years to get going with this. If you're researching, looking things up and using your spellchecker, you're doing everything right. You just need to give yourself some time to get it. Soon you'll retain more, look up less and get your line count up where you want it to be.

    After 20+ years, I still have to do research. That's one thing about this profession, it changes daily. Sometimes it's very frustrating, but keep in mind the benefits of staying home and what you're not having to pay for and you might be less hard on yourself.
    Maybe they will. Give it time. It takes time to set up links.
    OSI, Precyse, etc tell us more.
    I love IT. Give yourself some time and
    use the marker keys. You'll need to just slow down a bit at first, but the reward is awesome. I went from 45ish% productivity gain to low 60s. You really need to give it a good month with so many new things - marker keys, moving eyes, etc. I truly believe it's worth the money in the end. So slow down just a bit, the reward will be more lines for you. Also, visit the productivity talk forum. You'll find many great tips to help with shortcuts and commands, and the people there are wonderful when it comes to answering questions.

    I agree. Give yourself time
    to learn their accents, the way they word things.... ask QA to give you feedback, if they are not, and report back on words or phrases that you didn't get. Hang in there. I'd give it 2 weeks and you will be done leaving blanks. Good luck with the new account.
    I say you need to give it a shot full-time.
    That's the only way you will get quicker and more accurate. You need experience. The more you do it, the easier it will come. Good luck.
    Give them the benefit of the doubt the first time.
    Thanks for the responses. I'll give it more time.
    give it some time and distance for their grief to subside a bit

    then when things are calmed down, I'd have your hubby mention that it was very important to your son & I think she'd probably give it back in a heart beat.  I agree with how valuable it is for your son, but he has the visual and heart felt memories he will cherish forever.

    I lost a child 25 yrs ago, problems & issues that came up during that immediate time compounded issues with my little sister and it took 23 yrs and the death of our dad to finally put it all to rest and reunite and heal.  I can never get back those 23 yrs I wasted not having my lil sis in my life because of my stubborness, it's just not worth it. 

    give it time, dust is settling, they just have no place else to gripe yet. nm
    I spend a good deal of time tweaking the ones in there so ummm, may give it a shot lol
    A simple google search will give you your answer...I'd give you the answer,
    but how would that help you learn to research on your own...and I'm in a rush to get to the next post.

    The CMT exam is overrated. Don't waste your time & money. Use that money on
    paid anymore just because you have it.  There are a few CMT cheerleaders that post to people like you but they are pretty well sucked up into that association.
    You go girl! Your time is just as, if not more,
    Thanks, I will give that a try:) nm
    Give them whatever you
    would give them at the "fairy tale" wedding.  The honeymoon may be over by next year.
    hum, I might have to give it a try, then...

    Don't give it up
    I have been hurt severely on several occasions... and on occasion yes... a bit gun shy for the first period back in the saddle.  It does lessen and then goes away.  Just trust in your knowledge and your experience.  You have to trust your horse.  Just go slowly at first.  But do NOT give up.  That is the worst thing that you can do.  You have to face it and it slowly you will relax more.  Keep in mind that your horse will know/will feel your hesitancy and your fear.  In order for him/her to be relaxed, you must try to as well.  That is why going slowly at first will help regain your confidence.  Just around the ring maybe for a bit.... then a little more open.  Work yourself back up to your usual routine.  Good luck!
    Thank you, will give a try
    I would rather be alone than to give into it and you could , too.
    give it 5 min and this one
    Right. I think I am going to give that a
    don't give up

    There is no reason to give up just because you failed a test.  I have tested with a few companies and changed jobs a couple of times through my six years of transcribing.  I had no training either.  I had a very special family member who helped me out(she owned her own business).  I trained through the summer when I was in high school with her and by the time I was about 20 I was working part time with her.  Just because you are switching from tapes the computer based files doesn't mean that you can't do the work.  It may take a little time getting used to it, but there shouldn't be any reason to not be able to do the work.  Just like any other job, you may have to put in some applications at various places and go on interviews, and it may take some time, but you will eventually find a job.  As far as transcribing, I notice many places require either a c-phone or being able to install Express Scribe or a similar program on your computer.  If you don't have one, you can probably find a c-phone on ebay for around $200.  Just try to stay away from the larger MT companies and you should be okay.  I notice the smaller ones are easier to find a job with.

    One can't give up a job, even a bad one,
    that pays the bills, dead end or not. I think if this were me, I'd keep the job and take a better school that will mentor me into a job at the end of it. Nobody that I know would be able to give up a paying job to take on a mentored position for no pay. Another option would be to find a different job that is nights and do the free internship during the day. Either way you'd win in the end. Best of luck to you.
    They will give you everything

    Okay, I give up.
    It has no appeal. Just a job.
    Give this a try...sm
    Brown 1 pound hamburger and drain. Add 1 jar Prego spaghetti sauce, 1 8-oz can tomato sauce, 1/2 cup water. Simmer for 10 minutes or so.

    Cut a loaf of French or Italian bread into 1-inch slices. Place in 1 layer on the bottom of a 13 x 9 pan.

    Mix together 8 oz cream cheese (softened), 1/2 cup sour cream, and 2 tbsp of Hidden Valley Ranch dry dressing. Spread this over the bread. Sprinkle some parmesan cheese all over this. Sprinkle half of an 8 oz bag shredded mozarella over the parmesan.

    Pour the spaghetti sauce mix on top. Sprinkle some more parmesan and the rest of the mozarella cheese on top.

    Bake for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
    Thanks, I'm going to give that a try
    when I'm working and for sleeping. The doctor tells me that it is important to keep everything moving to avoid getting too stiff; however, I do think I need to try a soft neck collar or rolled up towel as you suggested especially when working. I think that may really help take some of the stress off. I will be talking to my therapist about it when I go as well. Thanks so much for the tip!
    Did I ask you to give up ANYTHING!!??
    Nope!  If you want to ride all over town burning up expensive gasoline and putting wear and tear on your car, with your fingers on the steering wheel instead of on the keyboard making $$$, be my guest.  Now let me guess Patty - next you're going to tell us that you don't drive a car, you ride a bike or scoooter instead to and from your doctor's offices and you're so fast on the keyboard that it doesn't matter you spend four hours out of the day riding up and down the interstate weaving in and out of traffic picking up and delivering, you still make the same amount!  HAH!
    no, I don't give them that...*lol*...ya nut!!..nm
