    Got floor model of chair that was perfect fit. Final mark down was $40. Went got home saw original
    thats you. the original poster is not you.

    original poster
    My heart goes out to you.  The sexual harrassment i'm going through is not comparable, I couldn't imagine dealing with this if I were a child..  In a way, they are taking something from us, no matter what age, when they cross that border.  I have told someone, so its out.  But my mother is another story. She has been abused emotionally and physically by men.  Like I said above, she is in a horrible state of mind, depends soley on this man.  Thats why removing myself until I figure things out would be best.  I do notice on his side of the family, he is not near his grandchildren, or great grandchildren, and over they years, they have expressed their hate for him.  I just don't understand at his age how he could still be doing something like this and not learn from it, having lost his own family? He is a master at getting people to like him...my family would raise eyebrows at me if I brought this up.  But like I said, I told someone, she understands, and it has leaked around. Actually talking to my mother, she would do something to hurt herself.  She wouldnt be able to handle it.
    It might not help the original poster (sm)
    but if you think you need to have a hysterectomy, find a physician who can do it laparoscopically. I had that done in December 2003 and I was back on my feet within a week. I didn't go back to work (outside the home at that time) for three weeks, but I had to convince the doctor to give me that much time because he knew how fast the recovery was from a laparoscopic hyst.
    To the original poster.....

    You said "She was voted off because she sang a Christian song."  That is absolutely not true.  She was voted off because this week when she sang country she did not get enough votes.  If you want to get really technical with it, "She was voted off because she sang a country song." 

    This had absolutely nothing to do with religion.  The week that she sang a christian song she did not get anywhere near being in the bottom three.  She was in a singing competition in which she would get a record deal if she won.  I don't think God would mind if she sang a song "out of her element" in this competition.  She did not commit any sin.  You sing what you have to, to get through the competition, if you win you chose whatever genre of music you want to pursue for a record deal.  Ruben did.  He sang all types of music during the competition and won it, then he made a religious album.

    Don't come blasting on something you know nothing about.  You said you weren't an Idol fan, so why do you even care and why did you have to make it out to be something it wasn't?

    By the way, I am a Christian.  I just hate it when people try to put religion in everything and twist things to make them look evil!!!!

    Original poster. nm
    not the original poster, but i will tell you what sm
    a company did to me. we supposedly got paid for spaces. we were "required" to put two spaces after a period, etc. I kept struggling to get my line counts up to par thinking why is it taking me so long to reach my norm. finally one day i decided to compare line counts. what i came up with was higher than theirs. so i figured line count without spaces and was too low. i took the difference of with spaces and without spaces and divided spaces in half and bam, hit their line count exactly. so even they we were required to type two spaces after periods, etc., we only got paid for one. their system would take our spaces and divide those in half before giving us the line counts. i never typed another document for them after i figured this out and didn't even waste my time explaining why. i felt i had the right to do as i choose since i was flat out lied to. nothing is worse than dishonesty. no that company was not Transtech for those wondering. to me, the #1 priority is honesty, decent program, then good communication, decent pay, pay on time and as agreed upon, decent work and steady workload.
    I am not the original poster
    No, I did not complain that I was being asked to do work I was told I wouldn't have. I responded to a person who stated they did. My response was that many MTs are no longer being matched up with the work they are most proficient at, then clueless companies act surprised when it slows down efficiency or loses employees. That is fact I have observed, of late over and over again. Please go back and read the thread.

    I won't even go into being "thankful" that a person is in a two-way contract that should benefit both parties, the employer and the employee, and honor about keeping to the agreement made.

    Regardless, I'm done with this mad hatter's tea party conversation.

    for the original poster or anyone

    I would like to leave a web site about Daniel G. Amen, M.D.  It lists several books about how the brain works and techniques for ADD, depression, etc.



    The original poster said
    "they pushed me out of the room" She is talking about her minor child and she went out because they pushed? You are talking 11 years old versus a 17 year old, believe she said, still a minor.
    If you'd look you would see that I AM the original poster....nm
    You make me laugh, stating that I am trying to intimidate you? Please, you were the one who said I had incorrect information and then called it "crap" and now you call me "childish and churlish" when everyone who reads on this board can see that you seem to think you are an authority on ANY subject and will always make a debate or judgement on everything that is said.

    By the way, those "switches" you keep referring to reside in the boxes at each zone.

    Also, I DID live in a rural area when this whole situation came up for me and we could NOT get DSL until we had fiberoptic AND the equipment in the box was changed. As far as speed goes, when we lived in the RURAL area, AFTER the FO and equipment installation, we could get 6.0...the highest speed available. I live in town now, not even a mild from the "central office" and can only get 3.0. Distance is not as much of a factor as you think....fiberoptic and equipment in the box is the main factor.

    As my mom always told me, book learning isn't always as good as good old-fashioned WORK experience. Have you worked out in the field, installing, laying fiber, actually DOING what you seem to have learned so much from being lectured by engineers? If I remember right, most of these engineers sit in an office and direct traffic, never actually driving anything.

    Since I am probably talking to someone who will NEVER change their mind even when presented with factual arguments, I'm truly going to stop now. You can have the run of the board back and see how many more people you can call names and intimate that no one understands anything besides you. LOL :-)

    For everyone else reading this, I truly only intended to help when I first posted and I truly know from first-hand experience what I'm talking about, not just because my husband did this exact job for so long, but because I read, I research, and I observe. Good luck to all of you and maybe this stimulus money that is supposed to go for "taking broadband to the suburban and rural areas" will be well spent.
    The original poster got me, and that's what counted!
    Sorry to disappoint, but she got my point!
    but not in the situation of the original poster...sm
    she sounded like somebody trying to get the quick fix of a new car. She's not an MTSO driving a high end vehicle and certainly had not done a financial analysis of the situation.  I agree, there are a few instances when you need to rent short term because of situations but bottom line is long term, renting or leasing can't be a better choice. Someone is making money off of you. The majority of people are working paycheck to paycheck and need to get past that illusion of "free money" from a credit card and leasing a nicer car than they can afford. I don't pretend to be a financial expert but most of the time spending money is about emotions than dollars. Case in point, leasing a nice car so you "look" better off. BTW, Suze Orman's books are the best I've seen yet...and I've read A LOT of financial advice.
    I agree. I am the original poster
    working as an IC for a service.
    R U the original poster? confused...sm

    IF you are the original poster, many feel badly for you because of YOUR words YOU typed....."my husband refuses to let me go back to dental hygiene school" or words to that affect.

    Seems to me you lost control over your life...........

    Hi Dianna and everyone- I'm the original poster for
    rebound headaches. I'm so glad I posted this question - I have received some excellent information. We're just a bunch of smarties, eh?
    I love it.
    Yep, it means original poster. Sometimes
    it can mean other poster, but usually original poster of a certain thread.
    I have to agree with original poster though
    I have gotten blanket emails from someone in my company recently who did not work with me or any of the rest on my account until the time of the email. She sent out an email addressing everyone when in reality there were a few of us that did what we were told and felt very offended to read it addressed and worded for all of us. I used to be a store manager in retail for years. One thing that I learned was if not everyone was doing wrong you should not address everyone as it makes makes those who did no wrong feel bad and can lead to decreased morale. You should address only those doing wrong. I have always agreed with this. I have read it in management books and been taught it. I have seen the negative effect of it when I did it in a store meeting. From then on I always addressed people individually.
    Exactly! And now the original poster is arguing
    with us about working Christmas when that was her supposed original dilemma - we can't win, eh? Unreal. And now that I feel like mentioning it - not having a contract is nothing to brag about - there are laws for patient's privacy issues, etc., and our industry is going to be challenged by US citizens who, while finding out about offshoring Indians transcribing our work, are also not thrilled at the idea of their next-door neighbor sitting in their living room with jammies on, transcribing their medical records without any legal contracts - scary stuff. Not professional to say the least. Of course, the original poster will now argue that she is a 100% pro - though she didn't know what her rights were when it came to working holidays...
    To quote the original poster
    Question was for original poster.
    My question was for the person who posted the original message regarding ownership of the software. In my opinion, that person was either SS herself or the person who calls himself Leo and claims to be her husband.
    I'm original poster -forgot to mention that I do.
    I quit twice in my life, the last time for about 3 years.  Both times just made up my mind to - and cold turkey.  Just can't seem to do it now. 
    This post was soo sweet. I am not the original poster, but was being

    nosey and thought your post was so sweet.

    I have applied to 2 companies - Medscribe and an MTSO. I am not nervous leaving MQ.  Wow.  Looks like a ton of people are leaving.  I wonder if that means just great news for their Indian MTs....hmmm

    Please note I'm the original poster and not azmt below. (sm)
    I would never not proof as my original post said.

    azmt there are many different names you can go by here and I'd rather not be confused with you.
    No, I am not the original poster, smarty-pants!
    I believe the original poster is the one doing the scoring, and she is SHOCKED at how low the score
    is for the MT, and she doesn't even know what to say to the MT under comments. I can certainly relate - lately, its abysmal in my company.  How, oh how, do these MTs get hired?  To me, that is the BIGGEST mystery. 
    Sorry, last post directed to Trixi, not original poster. nm
    I am not the original poster, but would love to know how to do this. what version of word are you u
    original poster of prayer sentence information
    I am the originator of the post on typing a sentence regarding praying with a patient.  I don't care that he did it one way or the other.  My concern was that I did not believe that it should be part of a dictated medical report.  We don't add patient names.  We carefully word sentences so that the patient is not denigrated in the process and patient care not impacted.  This is not relative to patient care, in my opinion.  I have been doing this job a long time and never had anything like that mentioned in a note before now.  Not at hospitals with definite religious affiliations.  Not when typing for a physician and his staff that regularly do it.  So, I asked a question here.  Based on the responses, it will be the last time I do.  Yes, I do "question' everything I haven't typed before by verifying the word, disease, medication, etc. 
    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.

    you know as couples go, angelina and billy bob were perfect skanks for each other. perfect!
    i suspect they may get back together because they are both so skanky no one else can keep up.  that is unless she decides she wants her brother more which is skankier.
    I was going to say unless you were the original 3 brave souls named on the original suit.
    I still had heard lately that no one else, not one person, had been allowed to join in, so you must be in a separate class??
    Good one. An anonymous poster blows another anonymous poster's head off. Great win for MQ?

    I guess that is a small pleasure for those of you who have lowered your expectations for the company you work for. 


    Bet you're married to a fat bald guy too. 

    But perhaps you should! Eye are not perfect! (as above)
    A second look never hurts!
    well i'm glad you've never made a mistake or wrong decision in your life. you have no idea what went through his head while he was there, and you have no idea what his situation was, or how he was feeling or anything. i wish my husband could be as perfect as you. ha, but then he would also be heartless.
    Of course, nobody is perfect
    but when your rate of pay depends on your QA score and you have endless pages of style guides to memorize, then one would expect the QA people to already know all of that information. I have done QA in the past as well and what I didn't remember, I would look up and many times learned things from the MT!!
    Perfect!! Thanks so much.

    Thank you!  Exactly what I was looking for. 

    Have a great day


    Perfect!!!! nm
    perfect job for me.... sm
    Why? Because I love this job and doing it from home just makes it so much better. I get to work in my jammies without makeup, deciding what to wear, traffic, long lines at the donut shop, fighting for the optimal parking spot, office politics, the boss's "favorite", backstabbing, nit picking, monitored bathroom breaks and phone calls, etc. I do acute care for a large hospital and every report is different. It keeps my brain motivated and my fingers moving. It ain't perfect, but I love it.
    Lee Perfect
    I like how a transcription company can't spell transcribing....lol.
    Perfect example of why we need QA ... it is
    Truly laughing out loud here!

    Lee Perfect
    Hi was wondering if anyone could tell me anything about this company. Thanks.
    lee perfect
    do a search on Company Board, not under Google, but under MTStars. They use Emdat platform, which a lot of people do not like. I feel there is a turnover there, as the same jobs are advertised always. They are IC.
    I don't get it, either. If we were all perfect,
    Perfect VR/ASR
    Remember that the better it gets, the less you will be needed.
    Thank you so much!!!  You have no idea (or maybe you do) how excited I am about this!!!  I just started using Word about 6 months ago and I have been cursing the fact that I have had to get used to using my arrow keys to get around the templates.  BLESS YOU!!!!!!!!!
    This is a perfect example of why
    we are losing our jobs.  After 7 years you still don't understand the terminology?  Oh Vey!
    Wow! That is perfect!
    That is exactly what I need.  May I copy it and use it?  You are so helpful! 
    No one is perfect

    I had a doctor tell me that he got a report back with fecal sac.  He laughed when he told the story.  It can happen to the best of us.  Try not to let it get you down.
