She needs to call her State Attorney General's office and the police.
She has been scammed. She'll be lucky if they don't continue drawing off her account or do identity theft since she gave out her private information.
Just signed up with Continental General Insurance Company, $388/month for family of 5, $1,000 ded.
We get two office visits per year at $20/visit and preventative care (mammogram, Paps, well-child). Sounds good so far ...
I bet other insurance carriers have insurance for their employees. Why not Wal-Mart? nm
imagine speaking about a topic, and having the police pick out one item and not have a thing to say about the topic itself. Must be interesting to just watch out for those mispelt words, and have nothing else to say. Must work for my old company. Everyone else is wrong - and you say nothing so you cannot be caught lol.
Police scanner going 24/7. Fun! nm
If there is a police report, that should be all they need -sm
I am going though this too right now, was T-bone, other person ran a red light and they were cited. Their insurance has copped to fault but pushing to get me to settle for $350, really don't want to get lawyers involved but fear I may have to. Also wonder if any of our conversations have been recorded, the agent has never said they were though. I have contemplated settlement but have not agreed to it or any figure. Since our last conversation my back/neck pain as become more of an annoyance (its been almost 2 months since the accident now), 2 doctors told me there was nothing they could do and I was fine....muscular injury....now seeing a chiropractor which is helping, so in the meantime I have not done anything about "settling". You have 2 years by the way in most states. So take your time and be careful what you say basically. I have a knot at the back of my neck the size of a small egg that gets worse the more I work, not good, along with stiffness and minor discomfort. It took time to all come out, so with being rear-ended get checked out and don't believe everything they tell you. My 2 doctors I was less than impressed with, one handed out Vicodin like candy (I have taken 4 in 2 months and he tried to give me more when I called him back a week after the accident), the orthopedist said I had a neck curve but it was from the swelling and time would fix it. How much time? A week, a month, 2 years, what? No advice on how to try to heal myself, etc. Needless to say I don't need this crap on top of everything else, but I have lost work, etc. and it is now harder to work, so I am taking a wait and see approach at this point. Good luck in how you handle it.
police department right behind us
Funny thing is the police department is right behind us--they probably hear her--just kidding. Her ex-husband workes on the volunteer fire department housed in the same building as police. He has probably already told them all she is crazy!
Not the grammar police BUT
If you want to be taken seriously, you need to make sure that ALL your written communications, including HERE, are grammatically correct.
before the police show up...nm
The 'grammer' police...!
Great...And kind of ironic.
The Grammar Police have a
Hey, no more spelling police!
We have spell check!!!! If you spell something wrong, it underlines it in red! WOOOO HOOOOO

wow couldn't you call the police?
there are restrictions all over regarding barking dogs in our state and it doesn't mean just at night. of course i wouldn't want to be enemies with a neighbor who lives that close to me and is ignorant enough to leave the dog barking anyway.  that is so awful.
That should be "can" - typo police. nm
PS: This guy was a police chief, and they were only in their early 30's.
This happened to me once. I saw 2 police cruisers,
a fire truck, and 2 ambulances in front of my house. I ignored it for a while but then my curiosity got the best of me and I went outside. It turned out my husband was in diabetic shock in the car in the driveway after having driven erratically all the way home. Someone reported his driving and the above all responded to our address.
My husband is a police captain.
He has 21 years on the force.  He makes about $40,000.00 a year.  I make less than he does.  We do okay though.  I used to make way more before offshoring ruined this business. 
what R U ? The Troll Alert Police?

yes I know that spelling police...I use my spellchecker --sm
to separate them, but it does not work on this site. geez.
Get over yourself, Grammar Police - sheesh!
The self-righteousness of the Grammatically-Correct- Nazis out there is unbelievable. Most of us take a quick break from work, dash off a quick post on this forum, and then get back to work. Not only is there little time for proofreading on this board, but in this tiny little box it's nearly impossible. And well-written, effective communication doesn't necessarily have to be the King's English, either. (Read "Huckleberry Finn" someday.)

We all understand that and get the gist of what is meant when someone types a post with misspelled word or a grammatical error in it. Usually those who feel they are above reproach when it comes to errors of any kind are..........MANAGEMENT.
Please ignore the grammar police - I do! They take away from (sm)
the point here. And, perhaps that is the point. We don't know who these oh-so-correct posters are. Perhaps they're management or ceo's. Distracting us with this nonsense won't help our cause. What is important is to get a consensus and, perhaps, write a petition that all who are willing can sign. If we can do this on-line we can each send to whichever newspaper we choose and forward to our congressmen (and women) and senators. Does anyone here know how to set up a blog in which a petition can be drawn up. Let's use our talents (and our significant others' talents) to make this happen. And, yes, there were incidents a couple of years ago when a disgruntled employee overseas threatened to release patient information. There was nothing that could be done as HIPPA does not apply to off shore companies. I find that fact to be interesting and slightly suspect. It brings to mind lobbyists and makes me wonder "why" the HIPPA laws were written in such a manner. There is quite a lot of info here on that incident. Do a search on "release of patient information" or something like that and it will probably rise to the surface! If we all do what lawyers and pundits call "due diligence" (meaning extensive research) and have a forum on which to share this information we can put together a compelling letter and petition. Keep the conversation going and maybe we will find the right people on this website that can do a portion of what needs to be done, and so on.
Don't worry-I'm not the grammar police...(sm)
as you can see from my postings. I type and (talk) very fast and make grammatical errors and typos that I would never allow to be sent out in a document! Communication here is not about perfect punctuation; I believe it should be about open and free discussions about the issues of MT's. Not grammar or punctuation.

"The Grammar Police" - (sm)

This was just TOO funny!  As soon as I viewed this on YouTube, I immediately thought of everyone at MT Stars.

That is awful. Anyway the police can get involved? These kids need
I talked with the police about this issue when one of my neighbors
kept trying to befriend my boys. The cop said that 90% of sex offenders are not in the database anyway because they have never been arrested. Those databases create a false sense of security because you think you're safe if nobody is listed in your neighborhood, but you still do not know if someone has the tendency or unreported history of sexual abuse. You have to treat everyone as a suspected child sex offender. They could have been doing it for years but nobody reported it. They could have had a plea bargain and charges reduced or dropped. They could have just never been arrested. We had a recent incident where a guy was driving past the elementary schools and kept trying to grab 11- to 12-year-old boys and force them into his car. The whole city was in an uproar because the police couldn't catch the guy, but he tried three times at three different schools. We suspect he's either moved on to another community or went back into hiding.
Hey, I thought the same thing about the spelling police.
Petty, and no, that's not the word the OP was referring to.
OOPS - 'HAVE" been - sorry, typing police
I call the nonemergency police number and let
My name isn't involved. They just state that there are complaints of noise coming from that apartment.

I've never had a showdown with anyone over this.

Call the police...the non-emergency number
most communities have noise ordinance laws. If the cops show up enough times they will stop. Trust me, I've done it. I had a neighbor that used to blast music at the wee hours. I tried the *nice neighbor* tactic of asking him not to do that becuase I have a child and we need to sleep, etc. Well, that didn't work. He worked 2nd shift and believed it was his *right* to blast his music whenever he wanted. After I called the cops a few times on him...he stopped, and I haven't heard so much as a peep out of him since!

Tell them Kristen is at it again - they know all about her.
Go to the police station and they can look him up and tell you who is parole officer is. nm
My high school had police there. It started
about my junior/senior year I think....and cameras everywhere. We also had a security guard patrol the campus, although he was more worried about kids sneaking out than anything.

I'm surprised all schools don't have them. It sure could have diffused the situation a lot faster, possibly saving the girl's life had a police officer already been inside before happening.
Remember, sweetheart, no spelling police as also
no one else telling you where commas, periods, exclamation points, etc. go. You seem to have caught my drift, regardless of whether I put a comma in or not. Maybe your burn out also extends to your ability to understand what you read?
All the spelling police and "flaming-pirhanas"
Even grammar police make mistakes


Anyone ever transcribe police reports or anything similar?
My mom was applying for a job transcribing reports and she has to take a spelling test.  Just wondering what type of terms she would need to spell.  (She's not the best speller in the world and it would probably be to her benefit to study some before the test.)  Thanks for the info.
Check your local police station, that'd be the place to look.
I bet they don't outsource that.....or do they? Interesting.
you need to contact the police Department in Frederick, Oklahoma sm

If you call them and make a complaint against her, they will help you take care of it.  She's afraid to go to jail, if she's not there already

Stop correcting. You're not the grammar police. (NM)
You can also charge her with "filing a false report" with police.
The police offered us to do that against our neighbors because they call the cops on us any time we even have relatives over for our childrens' birthday parties. It's not like we get rowdy and drunk. We sit on the deck and eat food for two hours. Oh, dread.

Sue the wench in civil court. Call the police and ask them what you can charge her with.

OMG "You're" geez, QA police/anals r here nm


No spelling police please...meant complaining. Time for bed ; )

In general
All caps and no abbreviations.  Headings for PE and ROS underneath.  Account specifics may differ.
In General....

An employer cannot set a specific schedule for an IC. This link addresses the issue here :


An excerpt fron the site above notes :

"According to the IRS, workers are employees if they must comply with the employer's instructions about their work, receive training or direction from the employer, provide services that integrate into the employer's business, render their services personally (can't subcontract), have a continuing working relationship with the employer, must follow set hours of work, work full-time for the employer..."

 As is noted in the site linked above , the consequences for the employer are quite severe if the IRS determines that the company actually was treating you as an employee rather than an IC.


In general,
in a given occupational group the upward pressure that unions place on wages and benefits has the net effect of raising the income and standard of living of poor folk up to the level of middle class folk while the absence of unions tends to drag the income and standard of living of middle class folk down to the level of poor folk. That upward pressure on wages and benefits not only helps union members but everybody else working in that occupational group. Without the organized upward pressure, wages will sink like a rock.

well, if not hippa police to enforce - quite useless. huge waste.
huge farce
Contact their local police dept with serial numbers.
You can report this as theft of property and have warrants issued.

Or, add the current value (when you sent the equipment to them) to their earnings statement at the end of the year so they must pay taxes on it and write it off your books as payment for services.
