Women like you are the main ones who have men leading double lives (sm)

or running around with your best friend, and you are the last one to know it. Keep your patronizing attitude. If you are in a relationship where you THINK THINK THINK you can trust your man, then that's wonderful and more power to you. But I hope you aren't headed for a fall.

A-M-E-N! The main reason women in all careers - sm
earn less than men (and employers get away with paying them less) is that it's impossible to get groups of women to stick together on ANYTHING, let alone anything that might involve a little initial personal risk before things are ultimately straightened out and this archaic pay disparity between men & women in the US workforce is resolved. Can you imagine the kind of clout MTs in this country would have if they all stood firm together and demanded that they be paid fairly for a job that not just anyone with a PC and a set of headphones can do? A few years ago when HIPAA first came about, we should have taken that and run with it, when it comes to securing our profession on US soil. We didn't do it then, but I think if we were to dig our heels in, and start writing and talking to the right media, we could still use HIPAA to our advantage. Think about it.
Correction - Men and women cheat - men get caught - women don't

I know more women who cheat than the other way around, and the difference is that no one knows about it unless THEY tell them.

LOL The blindest leading the blind
My experience leading to my hypothesis....sm
The same ones who think their reports are more important than everyone else's, and who therefore make EVERY chart a STAT, are the same docs who also believe that they cannot be bothered to speak slowly for us dumb typists, that their time is more important and they have better things to be doing than stupid dictation.
Does anyone think all of this with MQ is leading to a sellout next year. Just curious if anyone has
heard any rumors.
I would not give up that information freely either. That is what gives you the leading edge for cli
You are not a horrible person.

Do not be so free to give your business information out to anyone - it will cost you in the long run. It is a good business decision.
So many of us do not know what it is like to live in poverty.  India is still divided between the rich and poor.  Consequently, that leaves the so many of the poor to work like dogs just to support themselves and their extended family members.  I am tired of everyone talking about the Indian MTs.  We need to be in their shoes also.  All and all, AMERICA IS THE BEST PLACE TO LIVE!!!!!  THE LAND OF OPPORTUNITY!!!!
Women, especially women of childbearing

age (especially this woman) prefer indoor plumbing and a bit of privacy rather than using a port-a-potty.   I met a woman recently, she and her husband built the house behind me.  She is also a master mechanic and does landscaping, all traditional male professions.  She is a bit rough around the edges and I would never have pictured her with the man who is her husband. 

I know a few male MTs and if they aren't gay, they missed a good chance. 

I know someone who lives (sm)
in the same neighborhood in Atlanta that Bobby and Whitney live in...they said that Whitney tried to take out a restraining order on a little girl for trying to sell her some Girl Scout cookies! It's really sad to see how far down she has gone! She used to be so beautiful and talented, now she's just a train wreck! I guess that's one reason to be glad I'm poor! Can't afford to screw myself up THAT bad! Good day, all!
Obviously these 2 have no lives
They obviously have no personal life and come here to get their jollies.  They are immature and pathetic.  No wonder they like Medquist - same mentality.
That's because most of our lives are about

My dh lives for this show!!...sm
Coffee thing was very cool.  Had cylinder type holder for separate filters.  He explained it like a gun cylinder that holds individual bullets.  Anyway, he put filters in each separate cylinder and could make individual cups of coffee, soup, tea, etc. by rotating to the right cylinder and adding water. 
Yes, DH's family lives there. I would think this would be ... SM
a very good area to move to.  It is very rapidly growing, however, so if you are not into crowds, you might think about that.  They actually live in Oakwood which is just outside of Gainsville.  Hall County is supposed to have a very good school system.  Lots of shopping in the area, and I think they're building subdivisions like crazy.  It's also close enough to the north Georgia mountains that weekend getaways would be easy - or you could drive into Atlanta for special attractions.  They have recently built the Gwinnett Arena near there that has a lot of concerts, sporting events, etc., so a drive into Atlanta is not always necessary for this kind of thing.  All in all, a very nice area.
E-Bay and Days of Our Lives.
Yes, Days of our Lives for sure! I really
don't watch much TV, but this has been something I have followed my entire life (we both just turned 40, LOL). My granny used to watch (her "stories" she called them) and I was granny's little girl :-)

I am SOOOOOO happy to see Patch and Kayla back on the show! Now if they would just get this Bo and Hope thing straightened out. Oh wouldn't it be nice to have Kate, Billie and Chelsea miraculously disappear from Salem!?!?!?!?! Hey, a girl can wish can't she. LOL!!!!
Just how many lives do YOUR patients have?

Apparently mine have more than one because I have one dictator who likes to use the following phrase:  Patient was told that he might have death and loss of current life. 

Oh please! Now its all about the $$ again. He lives in France for several reasons,
the obvious of which is his wife wants to stay in her homeland, and, secondly, he has said that the Parisians treat him like a regular guy - we all know that celebs living in the USA are stalked and their lives are chaotic trying to avoid stalkers, paparazzi, etc. He feels his children are safe there, and they are his #1 priority.  Even a lesser known actor like Gary Oldman, who has NEVER stated anything politically incorrect, had to leave the LA area in the USA because some nut case "fan" keeps threatening to kill his 2 little boys. While Gary Oldman has been quoted as saying he LOVES living in the USA compared to Britain, he's had to return to Europe because the climate for celebreties is not as crazy as it is in the USA.  Its INSANE.  They do live some of the year in the USA by his family, but he has chosen not to disclose the location or times of year. He is like one of the BIGGEST stars in the world right now - and still nuts hate him. Hmm....I saw BOTH interviews, and read the original "USA hatred" article, and he never said that. While eccentric, the man is brilliant - do you think he'd be stupid enough to say he hated the USA?  He NEVER said it, but its just the perfect example of how media manipulates things, and how some of us are naieve enough to believe it.  Boycott him all you want - its your loss, not his!
lori who? wonder what island SHE lives on - sorry for being cat-ee

not surprised  guess I should really go read the story but if no details

of this person first I wonder if she really exists and if so and if they

can't brag on her situation, why can't they?

it should have been gwendolyn gopp from Op, Alabama who has worked for MQ

for 5 years or something like that.  show a picture, show us her co-workers, show


re: a canadian MT who lives next to MAINE
I have a MT company from portland, Maine who w ants me to work for them as an IC. They offered me 7 cents per line american. WHat a freakin joke!!

I wont work for under 12 cents per line and I have been out of it for awhile (6 years!!).

See ya!!
Anyone here a Days Of Our Lives watcher?
I am soooooo frustrated at the Bo and Hope situation.  Anyone care to express their opinion!
How many MTs feel like they have control of their lives?
If you have a family and a million things to do everyday on top of your job, how do YOU keep it all together?  What works for you or what has worked for you in years past?
My best girlfriend from childhood lives sm
in Colorado Springs and absolutely loves it! She is a school principal out there. She has several friends working at home as MTs and are doing well. I know nothing about where or what though. I live in NC and she and I are both originally from Michigan.
hit your neighbor where he lives - in the wallet - sm
check out your homeowners insurance about filing a claim (especially if you have medical expenses or can't work because of the attack) - they can find out who your neighbor's insurance is and believe me his rates will go through the roof! Our dog got attacked too (their dog was just being "friendly") with vet bills, etc. We have a leash law so I filed a complaint with Animal Control and they got a fine...if it happens again the file escalates. Good luck!
My housekeeper lives off Bankhead
so I definitely know what it is called and hear it all the time, just trying to be a little politically correct here. She is one who says skrimp (for shrimp) and strap cake for cake made from scratch.

We all like different things in our lives, we small talk them here

just as we would do around the coffee pot in the office before work or on breaks.  It's too bad the someone who doesn't want to talk about a certain subject can't just walk away....like they would in the office, I'm sure. 

 NOW go and enjoy your night.  Steak and veggies for dinner here. 

The patient lives with her parents, who are both alive and well.
I would hope they'd be alive. 
Hope she lives in the north cuz if she gets in the sun and walks
across a highway it will create a grease slick from all that lard rendering. 
My DD has to ask me for money, still lives with me. I moved less than a mile SM
from her college (since I work at home) for her sake, the things we do for our kids.
Hey, my daddy used to live in PP, now lives in Plantation.
I tape Days of Our Lives and can watch
it in no time. Between fast forwarding through commercials and fast forwarding through scenes where they are looking back at previous scenes I think I can watch an hour long show in about 20 minutes. LOL.

I like some of the reality shows like The Apprentice and Survivor. Oh and I LOVE The Amazing Race. Don't have much time for them though :-(
Even with taping.
Okay, lets just throw aside the fact he lives

But really. To make this work, don't you have to intrude upon people's lives and SM

make a horrible pest of yourself? Honestly? My riding instructor, who is one of the dearest friends I've ever had, gets into these schemes. His latest was Tahitian Noni juice.

He had some remarkable results with it on a horse that was just a juvenile delinquent - she reared in crossties, acted up at shows when she wasn't in the arena, she was just a PMSing witch.

So I was impressed. I went to a meeting with him. Come to find out, they don't actually want you to buy the Noni juice - they want you to recruit other people to recruit other people. Biggest mess of flim-flam I've ever seen.


Have you ever heard of Richard Petty? He lives in Level
Cross, which is a hop, skip, and a jump from GSO.

My mother lives with us. We bought small electric space heater for her (sm)
as we usually keep the furnace at about 68 and keep a humidifier going. Makes a big difference. Older people get cold, so I have told her she might want to make sure and wear warmer clothes and don't hesistate to use the space heaters to provide comfort level in the family room and her bedroom for her.
Is Terra Nova owned by a guy that lives on the border of Maine/Canada? - sm
If so, this guy is a snake. He was willing to pay $0.14/line for the Kaleida account just temporarily until he could get his lines set up to offshore. He told me that on the phone!!!
we are not talking about a house in the assoc. The original poster lives in a regular home.
So they cannot tell someone else what color to paint their house.

Double Wow sm
Could you please e-mail me that recipe, I promise I won't disclose it to anyone!
Double what you'd pay an IC
probably. I'd say the MTSO I work for probably makes double what I do in order to pay me. Makes sense.
women, sorry - nm
Its because men R better than women!
You know how when women are together they get their
Gossip. Saw both interviews. Grossly misdone by the media to imply US hatred. Johnny Depp lives has
dual citizenship in France and US as his wife is French. He does NOT hate USA. He vehemently denied this. He did "own" that he said the USA sometimes seemed like an aggressive puppy, jumping on other countries to make them do something the USA wanted. Had to do with the whole French thing during the war.  That's ALL he said, and he later said he is not politically savvy and should have kept his mouth shut.  He was sad for all the American soldiers being killed. 
Double applause! nm
double space

Geez, I thought I asked a simple question, but I guess not.  I could care less what Medquist or AAMT say.  I get paid hourly so I didn't ask the question because I was worried about money.  I was asking in general style terms - are newspapers, magazines, i.e., anything in print spacing this way now?  I just wanted to know if I was behind the times.    

double (sm) I mean triple for me

Double standard
So we expect MDs to always have their complete attention on every word out of their mouths, which would be nice, but some of them put in 70 or more hours a week at the office/hospital, and have mountains of dictation to complete each week. But we expect them to never make a misspeak, even though on these boards we have a heart attack if one poster points out another poster's spelling or grammar error. Never mind that we are supposed to be better at English than the MDs, but we don't have to use our skills in writing posts (which is MUCH easier to do well than never making a misspeak), even if the post has to do with getting a job. That's quite a double standard, if you ask me.
