How nice that he/she received it well. (nm)

Yes, I also received nice notes from doctors...
and also had what I called my partner in crime (my coworker) and one of the best MTs I've ever seen in all my years of MT'ing.  We had a doctor throw a container of paperclips on the floor because he was mad that the blank tapes he needed were missing from the desk.  She told him:  You are going to pick every one of those up, and GROW UP!  We never had any more trouble out of him.  We had working relationships onsite that could never be replaced.  We were respected and complimented on a job well done by many of the staff.  Then came outsourcing...  end of story...  
Nothing this year!! I'm surprised since in the past we always received a nice surprise! nm

Thanks to all who shared their reference sites with me; I received some great new ones! nm

Wow what a great way to start your day. It would be nice if they all would do that

she acknowledged her mistakes
-- no doubt she got high on herself -- there are very few that handle their fame and fortune well from the beginning. I still say she definitely has more honesty and decency than the rest of them.
I usually burn a nice incense--works great! - nm

Will not hold my breath on being acknowledged for the years
and really I am to the age where I really donít mind, just the money I make is fine. My hubby works union for a company and has some seniority so that is a good thing, at least does not have to buy his gas nor pay for repairs, etc. on his vehicle. At my present job if the work is down low, I am at a point where now I can take off some and usually do, knowing there are people like me who in the past really needed to work and I defer to their needs. Like I said, been there. One difference I see with these jobs now is in the past we did not run out of work all the time but now these companies do. I would never enter a business like this now because so iffy. Took a while for my training and glad I made living at it but it is not really good now. I probably would have 6 or 7 jobs going now to make what I did with full and part in the past.
It's nice to hear of a happy ending! Great of MT Stars! nm

Only Kwanzaa and Hanukkah are allowed to be acknowledged in schools anymore
I've seen posters on this board state that their kids have "holiday pageants" at school talking about every culture but those of European descent. I have no problem with other cultures, but when our own country is clearly trying to leave one out - especially the culture of the founding fathers - that is offensive and preferential special treatment for SOME.

By the way, I have no religious affiliation and believe in no higher power, but I know what culture this country was based upon and founded by. If Christianity doesn't offend me, why would it offend anyone else?

What's offensive is the blatant disregard and attempt at ERASING the culture that the majority of this country was raised with.

Merry Christmas!

Gifts

Seems to me I always give to the accounts and my IC's and I do get a bonus from one of my accounts but I have yet to receive anything from my IC's but I am sure anything would be appreciated.   Even cookies or candy would be appreciated as I rarely have the time.

Good stuff <G>


gifts
I used to send bagel baskets and coffee
gifts
I'm 50ish and every year my older brother sends me a gift certificate for Victoria's Secret.  That way he doesn't have to worry about style, color, size, etc, and he knows I wouldn't normally shop there.   They have clothing, but also large assortment of perfumes, lotions, etc that are very nice.  Can't think of a single woman I know that would not like that.  It's a fun place to shop if you're not spending your "own" money....
gifts
I agree with something they wouldn't get for themselves. If you know shops near where they live, a manicure is always nice, I never do this for myself because I'm always on the computer and think I'm "not worth it" but boy, does it feel good and they're only $12 at the local shops popping up all over the place. Lotions are great but some "smells" bother people, have to be careful there. Local mall certificates are great, that way they can pick a store but if they have kids, they'll probably spend it on them. Good luck, what a nice brother you are! How about a nice scarf, they are in all prices and sizes.
Gifts
yes. I have gotten a bonus from my company every christmas and I also sent a gift to the *office* last year for anyone who worked there. I don't know their personal home addresses, and probably don't want to, so just sent it to the office. I sent a combination of items from Popcorn Factorym but I am opting for chocolate this year! lol
Christmas gifts
I don't know your sisters, but if they are practical like I am, they might enjoy receiving a flowering plant (something to enjoy for months/years to come).
Also, with the price of gas as high as it is, a "gas card" would be nice. Or maybe a phone card for cell phone 'minutes'. How about a maid for a day? (I would love for someone to clean my windows for me.) Well now that you know what I want for Christmas, I will just sit back and wait . . . ;)
Girl gifts

Girls are so easy to shop for b/c we love everything! lol


Yes, bath & body works are great but if you are like me, then you already have a year's supply left over from previous gifts so i would actually pass on the bath sets.


I think that every girl, no matter what type of personality, loves being pampered at the spa. A nice massage or mani/pedi combo is best. I wouldn't give a facial though b/c some women don't like them (they are not good for sensitive skin) Or if you don't want to do the spa, how about a gift cert to her favorite hair salon?


Then of course, every gal loves any type of jewelry! Or if they already have a lot of jewelry, how about a new jewelry box or stand?


And don't forget technology! A new cell phone or a digi cam. Or if they already have both, new accessories for the phone or digi cam.


Want more ideas? How about a movie-themed gift? you could do a gift card for the local cinema, or buy some of their fav movies on DVD and include a small throw blanket & some microwave popcorn so they will have everthing they need to snuggle up this winter & watch a nice movie.


Then there are always gift cards to their fav restaurants, or you could get them tickets to a local theater show, or tickets to a wine-tasting event.  as i mentioned earlier, girls are easy to shop for! i am sure they will love anything you get them this holiday!


happy holiday shopping!!


We get gifts every year. sm
This year was a little candy jar full of goodies with the company name & logo on it. Not much but it is something.

For Xmas we got copies of the QuickLook Drug Book. Every year at least something.

No, I don't think MT week will go away - it is written into law and signed by Pres Reagan back in the 1980s.
grad gifts

I think that it varies throughout the country and the circumstances.


 


My husband and I are on a budget so we don't spend much.  For his great-nieces and nephews, we send a card with gift certificates for fast food restaurants and it is for 5 bucks.  Might not sound like much to many but they seem to appreciate it and we feel better not breaking the bank.  He has a huge family and to do more would be tough.


Graduation gifts

What is the going rate for a graduation gift?  It is the granddaughter of an acquaintance of ours.


Outdoor gifts
Such as concrete statuary for flower beds.  Even a beautiful flowering shrub that celebrates every year with them.  Now is the time to plant shrubs and trees so that would be great if they have a home and not an apartment. 
Gifts to doctors
St. Jude's Childrens Hospital sends a nice card if you donate money in their name. I think it would make the doctor feel wonderful and you are doing a great thing, everyone benefits. That's what I think is a great gift for someone who is a professional. Look them up on the Web.
How nice is this keyboard? Nice light touch?
I have a regular Microsoft ergonomic one now but I'm thinking I should probably get a replacement and use mine as a backup. 
I also make many gifts throughout the year....
and spend alittle on the grandkids. This year I'm making a collage of pictures of my mom and dad (both deceased) for my sister, and my 3 sons. Friends get baked goodies and candies.

Grandkids will each get a toy (yes "A" toy), and a couple of small books (I'm the "Book Gran"). I'll make stocking for my 3 sons, my DIL and my 3 grandkids, just trinkets, etc that I find at the dollar store, and fruit and candies (like M&M's). And that's it.

Christmas isn't about GIFTS, its about love, hope, and faith.
Most industries do not gives gifts or bonuses...
I would be happy if I got something from my company, but I would not be upset it I didn't.
Shopping - yes, making gifts - no
I still have pictures to frame and pillows to finish sewing and stuffing.
Good for you for homemade gifts
I at least try to make my cards each year.  It's nice to put a little homemade into the holidays.  By the way, I'm done.
One of the greatest gifts I have are my parents.
My father is a very strong Christian man. He worked hard all our lives and provided a living well enough that allowed my mother to stay home with us.

He took us to church, structured rules for us as teenagers, and loved us fiercely.

As I grew up and got married, I found my husband to be completely incapable of providing for me as my father (and mother) did. While it left me confused for quite a while, I finally realized that no man was worth my time or energy unless he could take care of me as well as or better than my father did and that I do.

I am shocked and hurt at the number of stories I hear from others everywhere about their lack of a wonderful family and childhood.

Honestly, I feel like I am the most blessed person I know considering my family, my children, and where I am in life.

My father gave me strength, discipline, a love for truth and self responsibility, and most importantly the key to knowing God.

I think I would just note "no gifts please".
Nor would I ever suggest only money be given.

Christmas bonuses/gifts

Two questions: Do you receive any Christmas bonus or gift from your company, and do you give your company or team leader anything?  I was just curious. This is my first year to be working at home, as I have always worked in-house.  That was always the "fun" of working in the hospital -- the gift exchanging and Christmas parties!!!

After several months of debating, I want to get out there and see if I can acheive my goal of trying to get accounts of my own.  Does outdoes anyone have any cool ideas of little gifts to leave along with my cards at doctors offices? Thanks a bunch!

To any ICs out there who send Christmas gifts to MTSO, see msg
I'm looking for a different idea than Harry and David.  Do you have any suggestions?  Thanks.
We're not mentioning gifts in the invitations...sm
but are trying to figure out how to handle it when people call/e-mail/write and ask about gifts and do so tactfully, even when we say "no gifts preferred."
Well, that's all folks. All gifts have been given. It's been a wild ride

URGENT REQUEST: An MT that we sent a box of gifts to did not receive the package.

It was delivered to their porch according to UPS but she did not get it.  It contained gifts for her children.  Because we did not put insurance on the package, UPS will do nothing to assist.  The box alone to ship had cost $45.00 and insurance would have cost another $25.00.  It is a sad story, but what it boils down to is that the kids won't have a Christmas.  All monies in the Santa's House for Christmas Angels fund have been dispersed through the Christmas Angel program.


So, I am here to ask for help.  I would like to raise $150 to $200 today if at all possible and for anyone who donates $10.00 or more to this special cause, I will give a software package that contains a word Expander and spellchecker that is worth over $100.00 for your trouble.  Donations can be made to sales@mtstars.com via Paypal.


Again, thank you for your consideration.

My favorite gifts over the years were the homemade ones - congrats for having the energy

I was nice today, and people were nice to me.
If you steer away from the nastiness, there are a few nice and encouraging posts in there. 
I think you sound self absorbed to feel you deserve gifts. Being a mother is selfless. nm

I never received, and neither did my
We were all at the big M. I just resigned after almost a year, and did meet all of their criteria. However, their system isn't correct and even said that I was not going to be hired when my friend asked about her referral bonus. Mind you...I had already worked there for 6 months at this point. I keep getting "I will check on it" when I ask about my sign on bonus. I gave up and left.
I have received these before too. sm
I just deleted it and ignored it.
I received this because...

I received this because I had posted on this forum about increasing my production.  This particular person emailed me through this board with that response.    And no, I am not going to send my work overseas to them for those of you who are wondering.  lol
