Today's funny typo! - sm

   Good thing I proofread!  Otherwise, the report I just finished would've gone through saying,  "There is snotty anterior cervical lymphadenopathy."   

The mental picture I got was of some lumps on the patient's neck which had human faces, all of which had upturned noses and haughty, snobbish expressions! 

I think this job is starting to get to me ----------------

Today's funny typo! - sm
Time to call it a day!  The doc dictated that the patient was interviewed 'through a Spanish interpreter'.... which through my tired fingers came out - 'through a SPINACH interpreter' ! 
Here's a funny typo for you. I saw this at work today on a chart.

I had a funny one today!

He gave the date and then said, "Oh and by the way it's my big day today.  #50!  Lucky me!"  Then he said, "Oh and, by the way, you don't need to include that in this report."  He laughed.  Like I was going to.  It's nice to get a funny once in a while. 

I've never had a problem with a dictator saying, "transcriptionist, typist, operator, etc"  They don't understand how the phone system works and that I'm 3000 miles away and not the the Transcriptionist that they used to know by name that worked in the office every day.  They probably feel the same way I do when I get a good dictator that I really like and the dictator says, "Good Morning!" and you can''t say good morning back because they are just a voice out there somewhere.


my funny today was ...sm
editscript came up with antacid penis for ..... get this, Mirtazapine!! lol!!
Funny you should ask this today!. .
I just got back from an interview at the hospital I quit 3 years ago. I only worked there for a 6 months and had to leave due to medical problems. I swore that I would never go back there. I decided working at home wasn't for me and went in to talk to my old boss one day. I am not a very bold person and had never kept in touch with anyone from my department, so it was really hard for me to walk in there and tell them I was available to come back to work. They weren't even hiring! It literally took me several weeks to get up the courage. They re-hired me without any hesitation. They are even letting me work part time, which is something they normally don't do. I figured that it doesn't hurt to ask. The worse they could do is say no. They actually seemed more excited about it than I was. They said they were happy with the work I did while I worked there, and they would love to have me back, which shocked me! You never know what could happen. Good luck to you!
Too funny!!! Needed this today...thanks :) nm

Aren't you funny today?
Fully vested means they've reached the required number of years of service with the company to receive 100% of the profit sharing, retirement, or whatever. Until that point is reaching, employees usually only receive a percentage based on the number of years they've worked until fully vested.
Hahah!a! Funny typo: not quality 'scAre', quality 'scOre'. LMAO!...nm
funny, I just saw this today at the health food store..
Schiff "Knock-Out" (which is Melatonin with Theanine and Valerian -- )

I cannot personally advise but it sounds natural and tempting...

Perimenopause has been playing havoc with my hormones and I do a lot of investigation on natural remedies.

Hope you find something - sleep is so wonderul. I heard suzanne somers say she put herself to bed at 9 p.m. for a year during her changes.
HELP with Shorthand. Suddenly today when I tried to start work today.sm

my ShortHand would type only the first letter of an expansion and then take all the letters away!  I checked and the Type It button is grayed out!  I have restarted the computer and looked on the Shorthand Help menu but can find nothing that applies.  Can anyone please help me ASAP?  I am lost without it!  TIA

Perhaps you are right. This one is dated today. The original article was on Yahoo today also with

But this article states it would only affect new customers right now.  So I am upset over nothing.  I went through heck with BellSouth when they charged me a surcharge of an extra 50 a month and then would write a letter saying I had to switch to a long distance service and pay by the minute because of my "excessive" use. They told me the unlimited charge was for an average of an hour a day not somebody who worked out of their home and I needed to switch a business plan at over 200 a month charge.  I switched over to cable because of that and then to read that cable was going to charging on a per use fee and not a flat monthly fee it upset me.  It is the nature of our work, VR, only paying for VBC, having headers and footers taken away, now being charged for being on line, etc.  It just seems that everything is done to keep to insure less money.

You're funny. Ignorant, but funny.
I don't live in NYC and I don't work out of NYC and I make wayyyyy more than $23 an hour, SandyGIRL.

I'm an employee at the largest national and I make anywhere from $58K to $64K a year.

You don't have to believe anyone but you show your ignorance by telling those of us who make that money that we're full of it.

Sorry, that was not an ASR funny, just a regular ole dictation funny. LOL! nm
Blasted cold out today. It was 104 degrees last week, but it's 40 degrees today with rain.
However, I do like cozy days like today when I don't have to go anywhere.  I'm done working, the house is clean, there's chili on the stove for dinner already, and I'm just putzing around.  I think I'll go bake some jalapeno cheese bread to go with the chili.
typo/ should have said definitely. Thanks

Sorry for the typo and...
I'm also going to post this on the company board in case this is the wrong board for this. Thanks.

Just noticed typo - should've proofed before sending.  Sorry for the incorrect spelling of through.
It was a typo
My father-in-law signed my husband up for this and I thought I would give it a shot to see if we could make some extra money. I really am a medical transcriptionist. I work for a company out of Brentwood, TN, but I get to work from home using ChartMatrix and VoiceWave.
It's a typo - get over it! nm
Sorry about that typo!

I meant to say [resent] instead of recent. I hate typos, even in postings---must be the MT in my blood!
Your VPN, no you. typo! nm
Sorry, typo, but I'm not ..
even sure it is the right drug without the context.
sorry for the typo


Sorry---meant 500/wk!
their typo
That is they are here not AR. sorry typo nm.
Sorry for typo. sm
Sorry for typo. Yes, you are right. It's such a small amount, but the principle of the matter as well as her arrogant disposition prompted me to do it. Her lawyer is taking it to trial. We could have settled this thing, but maybe her lawyer is milking her and stroking her pride. Anyway, someone is going to get paid, even if it is not me.
Was told I could NOT take a vacation....or, not one that included the entire weekend - lol!
cataract and not enough coffee. :)
"It" not I. sorry for the typo. nm
it was a typo - LOOKOUT.....NM

yes, but there are not just typo errors. sm
A wrong word, i.e., peroneal instead of perineal, and the list goes on ad infinitum, or a sentence ending in the wrong place.  There are any number of things a spellchecker will not catch. I proof totally when I transcribe. Having worked in QA for a long long time, even very very good MTs make some pretty bad mistakes from time to time. 
sorry for typo, should be "looking bad" (sm)
Sorry for the typo...should have been "looking bad". I just woke up and am checking my email, etc. I worked 2nd/3rd last night. I know it is no excuse for a typo, but my brain is not in "work mode" just yet.......

[[[[[[Seems like I've heard that you have to let it get a certain length before you wax? Waxing seems like it would be great, but if I had to wait even 1 day with it looking back, or heaven forbid, dayssss, no way. Is that true, or can you just do it as soon as you see a sign of more growth? Seriously, I've always wondered about this....not OP, but this post caught my eye too.]]]]]]

Please, one typo is NOT the problem..
typo--that should be WEBSITE

long day

I would count as a typo
especially if I felt the MT knew her stuff.... this kind of thing happens - QA supposedly was an MT themselves in a previous life- do you think this never happened to them? I might not even count it depending on the MT and my mood! :)
Please disregard the typo . . .
I see that I have mixed the words. It just makes me mad to see QA with "experience" pick on those trying to make it. Seems like you tend to forget how it was in your beginning years.
oops -- typo
Fingers are not working today. Sorry. :(
My blooper typo-of-the-day! sm

Doctor dictates:  "Extremities are warm and well perfused."

What I almost typed:  "Extremities are warm and well PERFUMED." 

    Time for a break

Ooops! Typo.
I did type it wrong on my original post.  It is Ctrl+Insert+Insert that I use.  I am out of it today...typical Monday blahs.   Thanks! 
I repeat - and YOU have never had a typo?
Landlord (sorry about typo) nm

I made a typo - sorry! nm
This wasn't just one typo, there were several.

Sorry about the typo - forgive me
Sorry for the typo . . .

Please excuse the typo...
Should read... if I can swing the 8 cpl that was offered to me.
You probably had a typo in several of your passwords
when you typed it.
Why did it go through one time? That's when you typed it right.
Maybe they blocked you, were your emails 'nasty'?
