Darling hubby, dumb hubby, dufus hubby. Take your pick. I have been known to use all three--
they're wrong

The report is not valid unless the doctor signs it.  If there is something incorrect on there and he still signs it anyway, he is verifying that the information is accurate and then he is responsible for the error, not you.  I don't believe a transcriptionist has ever been held legally liable.

You're wrong.
He was not making speeches about the war when the hurricane was coming or after.   I think everyone was too busy attending meetings.   But at least he wasn't blaming everyone else like Mr. Mayor.
No, you're not wrong.
You're still WRONG!!!
You're too busy trying to prove everyone else wrong that you're not even paying attention to the original question, which was why do newscasters say "pleaded guilty." The answer is because that's the proper use of the word: The past tense of plead is PLEADED. The word "pled" is an Americanized version of it, probably derived from lead/led, hence plead/pled. It's acceptable - but not as proper as pleaded, which is why newscasters, public speakers, etc. use it.

So, before you go ahead and plaster a big WRONG!!! under someone else's comment (which is so completely obnoxious), make sure that you are correct and know what everyone is talking about in the first place. Maybe you're the one who needs to do the studying up.
I think you're wrong.
In this instance anyway. I don't see how they can stop someone off shore from posting questions like the OP.
They're wrong.
Whoever told you that it is the law that you must give a SS# to register your child is misinformed. A SS# is not to be used for identification per the original intent of the SS. I have never given the school a SS# for any of my kids and they had no problem at all; they assigned a student number to each one. If this person is insistent, ask to speak to their superior or contact a school board member--that usually gets the problem solved in a hurry.
No, you're wrong.
The rate of pay in this industry has NOTHING to do with intelligence. There are companies willing to work for less than others. Hospitals/clinics, etc., want to see an improved bottom line, so the contract goes to the lowest bidder. It's more about the cost of living and the standard of living in the country where the work is being done.
No, you're wrong....
Please understand that not all Americans have the same ideas.  Some of us see things from a different angle.  Do not be closeminded.  No one is asking you to agree, but have some respect and try to learn from others' perspectives.
You're right, everyone else is wrong. There.
How do you know you're being trained wrong?

Can you give some specifics?  BTW, many MT rules do not follow standard English grammar rules.  We either go by the BOS (AAMT Book of Style) or per account specs provided.  Each job is different.  If you want a paycheck, you learn to adapt to their particular style.

I seriously doubt anybody's going to hire an untrained QA person.  A person has to have years of experience as an MT before doing QA.  Honestly, if you're that unhappy, quit.

Wrong. You're the only one who sucks
more than Monica. In fact, you sucked so much, you were the first american to overdose on semen. They were barely able to save you. Yo daddy and uncle ron kept your throat full of protein.
I think you're all wrong. It's all about getting the work done
for the hospital in the fastest time possible and my company doesn't care if I do it or if you do it (if you worked for us) or if someone else does it, just get it done for the client. So complain as you like, find somewhere else to work if you need, but get the work done. That's the bottom line.
you're not wrong..just full of yourself.

I dunno if you're wrong or not...
or even a shrew or not. If it were me, though, and in fact it was me a couple of months ago, I'd not go out to lunch a couple of times to be able to get my keyboard. How much is this ergonomic keyboard you are needing anyway? When my ergonomic keyboard bit the dust a couple of months ago, I got on e-bay and got mine for $8.00 ($1.00 bid, $7.00 S&H). It came right away and my soreness and achiness for those few days went right away! But, even though this keyboard retails $50.00, I am wondering how much the one you want costs; way over $100.00? I guess what I'm getting at is I'd just take my kids to the park with Colonel Sanders AND get my ergomic keyboard too. I am sorry that your husband responded so coldly. My husband would bend over backwards to help find a for me to get the keyboard, but I can't see where I'd even make it his problem. I would just adjust my budget so I could get my keyboard and let my husband know what I was doing to be able to get it (and this is what I did a couple of months ago). I guess I don't see how this is such a huge issue; we're only talking about a couple of weeks, right? Of course your health and well-being is of great importance, and an ergonomic keyboard is a high priority because of your symptoms, but would it be that awful to adjust your budget just one time so you could get the keyboard? I guess I don't get to get out that much anyway, so missing a couple of lunches with friends wouldn't be that bad for me!

I've totally missed something here I am sure, right?

Anyway, I do hope your symptoms get much better soon; take care of yourself, especially regarding CTS.
You're on the wrong board!
This particular board is for medical transcriptionists, so we can't help you. Sorry!
Either way, you're in the wrong place. sm
Please read your own message. You made two errors when you neglected to take out two headers not needed, IMO. I don't mean to be rude, but you said it yourself.
You're totally wrong.

The hospitals know exactly where their work is being done.  Large facilities contracting with offshore (or US nationals who provide the offshore liason for them) do it knowingly and with one goal in mind - savings.  It's unfortunate, but it's happening every day.

No you're not wrong but my statement stands too
If it was your daughter missing and the media basically concentrated on a demographic other than yours, you'd be wondering why you can't get help for your daughter too. Media looks for sensationalism and the since outrage currently involves young children or affluent, pretty, white young adult females, that's what the media flocks to.
If you don't know what a typo is, you're in the wrong business.
This is a message board, not a paid document.
you're wrong, I type for an MD w/ADHD...nm

Fantasia doing just great- you're wrong..sm


All about Fantasia and what she's doing, TV, songs, etc. 

For those who think Clay was a better more soulful singer than Ruben....those people who think that..... evidently have not one soulful fiber in their body....

Gaydar is what Clay Aiken is all about......to each his/her own....

Sorry, I think you're all wrong. This is the sexiest man alive...!

Nope, you got that wrong. What we're afraid of is
You're both right and you're both wrong.
There are too many variables to give an accurate--or even estimated--count. Using a standard 1-inch margin, you may have short lines and lots of paragraphs and get a lower count. If no paragraphs and it's a full page of text from margin to margin, you get your higher count. You can't possibly use an average count because of variables, which is why no one can commit to a pat answer.
LOL, maybe you should stop reading anti-Bush blogs because you're wrong.
wrong, wrong, wrong. work is being outsourced because of $. period. not because of unqualified MTs
Your hubby must my hubby's twin. sm
He can't find anything or put anything away either. He did learn a long, long time ago to empty his pockets, though. I have a nice big doghouse where he spends with his dog with things get too hot. Or, he can sleep in his corvette, but it gets a little cramped in there!
It is not hubby, is her father, but not hubby. nm
You're probably doing nothing wrong, employee status seems to be the norm with IC status primaril
SE status instead of IC? For me,SE status is heaven -with part of taxes paid and flexibility in my schedule. Have you ever applied to MDI-MD? They only accept qualified, experienced MTs and stress quality in their transcription. From what I read of your qualifications, it sure would be worth contacting them.

Per "see mssgs" comment regarding age discrimination later on in this discussion, I'm 64 - no problem getting hired at a line rate higher than average. Age is not a factor with MDI-MD - knowledge and quality is !!!
I typed a report on the wrong patient as the doc keyed in the wrong info, SM
He later said the correct patient's name and I SWEAR to this day I made the changes but somehow the report when through without the correct patient and changes made. I still remember that incident.
Fantasia wrong??? Haven't seen the OP's CD, couldn't have been too wrong.
It's about morality - not censorship! Right is right and wrong is wrong!
My hubby is..
In the Army.  He makes more money and carries the benefits...medical and dental.  This is actual the ideal job for me as we move a lot.  I stay home and watch the kids too, so I am not making a lot of money at this.
Hubby is away, I'm going with you lol nm
Not me, but my hubby did (sm)
My husband dreamed of his first wife's death the day she died.  She was only 43 and not apparently ill. 
we are blessed. 
you have to find a husband who is willing to help with the chores or at least help you out at times.  My husband helps me out on the weekends and the weeknights we take turns with the kids and dinner (and he works 10 hours a day)  hope you can find a happy medium.
My Hubby
He sounds like yours. Mine also works 12 hours a day, and he out with all aspects of the housework, including laundry as well as the outside work. He knew it was important for me to be hope since I couldn't be with our first daughter.
Hubby has this....
Every company is different...but the profit sharing is usually paid out either as a bonus once or twice a year. You will have to read the specifics on your plan. At the last company he was with it was pretty much profit sharing in title only until he became a vested employee. 401K is completely different.
My hubby just got me a new one
from Tiger Direct for only around $300-something. It is a pain though to move things.

Otherwise I'd have to call in a computer geek type to try to fix it. I have no talent or patience for computer problems.

I hope it gets fixed quickly.
Your Hubby Gets Around
They have 3 cables cut now in totally different areas. What a coincidence!
my hubby
Well, my hubby was on a total of 32 prescriptions meds before he passed away, and I thought that was a lot!  But, over 50, that is just sad.
My hubby gets it right now. Here's how they...

This is just a small excerpt from the website.  It was easier for me to copy and paste then to try to explain it!! lol.  It varies from state to state.  Go to Google and type  'unemployment benefits yourstate".  It's the UIA-Unemployment Insurance Agency.  It will tell you everything you need to know like when to file, how they determine eligibility, etc.  Or type www.yourstate.gov.  I Hope you never have to use it.  It took maybe 4 weeks or more before my husband got his first check.

Amount of unemployment benefits

UIA staff calculates how much you receive in unemployment benefits by multiplying the highest amount of wagespaid to you in any base period quarter by 4.1%. The UIA adds $6 for each dependent you claim, up to five dependents. The weekly benefit amount is capped at $362.

To determine how many weeks of benefits you may receive, the UIA multiplies your total base period wages by 43%, and then divides that answer by your weekly benefit amount. The claim, however, cannot be less than 14 weeks or more than 26 weeks.

No hubby!
Not in the service but hubby is...sm
Im sorry that your husband is in such a mess but there are other ways of handling it. My husband is just finishing up a 20-year career and I know very well the things that go on. Your husband should have used his chain of command...that is what it is there for. My guess is he will get a court martial, probably go to the brig for a while, and get a dishonorable discharge.
hubby who went ua from marines

I was wondering the same thing?  I'm sorry for your situation, but it seems it was brought about by the choices that your husband made himself.  We all are not perfect and obviously he regrets the mistake in comitting to the service that he made & it will be a hard lesson learned.

But, for the life of me, I'm not sure why you are posting on theis board/ I thought the OP was from your Mom? about her son-in-law, then you, his wife replied to someone's negative comment? As a poster mentioned above, if your an MT, then it's reasonable for you to post here, but I think you would probably find more needed information from some type of military board, or Maybe Google it.

My daughter, like many of the "kids" who are in Iraq now, signed up for the reserves to serve their country but also to get help with their higher education..many never dreaming they'd be called to war.  We had just returned from shopping, finally finding *the* bridal gown, walked through the front door to find my husband and the rest of our kids, along with her fiance (who is in the same unit) practically in tears. Yep, they both got their orders and they both were in the first invasion.

Their unit was military police but their initial jobs were to supply mortuary service! Not anything that either of them nor anyone else in their unit, mostly kids fresh out of high school, could have ever dreamed a year prior that they'd be doing.

I thank God they all returned home safe & sound and were able to have a beautiful wedding before my sil got called back.  He's still over there, my dd is home and just finished serving as an honor guard for 5 different funerals within one week for kids that did not make it back alive and well.  No matter anyones opinion about the war, when you sign into the military, you have to serve.  Like many have posted earlier, there are thousands serving who are in the same shoes as your husband, with a spouse and kids they want to be with.  But rules are rules, if you break them, then you will suffer the consequences.

I do not think it is fair for you to come to this board asking for help, then when peopl post a reply honestly, you get down on them.  Yes, I know this is an emotional time for you, but it's also an extremely emotional time for those who know or have lost loved ones, or like myself, living in a town who have lost so many so fast and the funerals are tying up traffic more than construction is.  They have been beautiful with the roads lined by thousands of strangers who just feel for the families of these kids.  So be thankful, your husband IS home and will be able to come BACK home, after he pays the price for his decision, which is only fair.  He stillhas choices, many of the kids do not.

Sorry, just struck my last nerve.


It's going around. I have it, too. So does hubby and daughter.
Hubby bought me ...

this great little Holmes I-Touch electric heater probably from Lowe's or Home Depot.  Cost about $20... very light and compact with a blower.  Hmmmm, toasty!

Traveling Hubby
I, too, have a traveling husband with so much responsibility in his job for the past 20+ years.  Often I have had to be put on the back burner with a small child so that he could progress to the successful executive he is today.  Things have never been about me, and I have had to accept this.  I must say it was much more difficult when my child was young.  When he is free, we have to remember to schedule nice things together and get those in his DayTimer before life marches on by us both. 
tim is Elisabeth's hubby....sorry....LOL...nm
