Stand up and what get fired. Lose benefits and lose my house. Can't risk it.
I wish I could. That is why this business is as bad as it is. We can't afford to not work, so we settle for whatever gets thrown at us.
My Fave?
Arkansas cake (banana cake with no frosting!)  Ooooyum!  It's rip roaring good!! Wash that down with some mountain Dew and you got one of the best taste treats that would rival any five star restaurnat BAR NONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ops are my fave
Years ago when I worked inhouse and was training to do MTing, I was literally scared to death of ops. My boss lady did me the biggest favor of all. She noticed I did not pick the tapes (yes, tapes) for the ops, only choosing others and 1 day I think she was a little upset with me and put me exclusively on ops for about 3 months. Can I say thank you now! I can yo-yo on ops, I don't have any saved so most of my are word by word but most of the physicians I transcribed say the same thing over and over. I have now worked on the same acct for 18 years and I just about know what they are going to say next. Easy money for me. Don't care for H&Ps nor DS, they only slow me down.
Who's your fave Beatle?
John, Paul, George & Ringo - my fave is John. So creative and brilliant - such a senseless loss...
She's my fave, too. I don't force anyone into my car either.

What is your fave browser?
Mine is Firefox - love how fast it is, plus tabbed browsing rules! Much better and safer than old Internet Explorer, I must say. BTW, the newest version of Firefox comes out today (free download) which is supposed 2B even better!
My fave's VEGAS!

Anything Vegas is romantic to me......

Go there and find the best suite you can at one of the finer hotels; i.e., Bellagio, Mandalay Bay,  Wynne, and then make reservations at some of the five-star restaurants - then top it off with a fine show, a few hands of black jack, a couple of Black Russians, and a helicopter ride over the strip at night, then if you have time, go to the top of the Stratosphere at their lounge and have another Black Russian.  That view is TOTALLY romantic!  

Whereever you choose, though, I have you have a totally romantic time!


here's one fave from my archives...sm
i had a young neurosurgeon dictating an extremely complicated brain surgery while on his cell phone in his sports car...all of a sudden i hear the engine screaming (sounded like a ferrari!) and him saying, "sh**...I gotta make this light, hold on..." which was followed by nothing but ENGINE noise for a few seconds, then a brief pause, and he calmly continued dictating his complex report...talk about multitasking...i'll never forget that one. :)
My husband's fave........
A good steak and angel hair/broccoli/shrimp on the side. I make it like a scampi and pour over the angel hair/broccoli. Bon appetit!
ER reports are my fave

They are always different and therefore interesting, and the docs always seem in a hurry so they talk fast and I fly through them which makes the line counts rack up really fast. 

30 hours divided by four days equals seven-hour days. Most of us have to work pretty much every day
What's your fave Beatle song?
Hey Jude 4 me!
my fave movie too....but not for Costner...nm

or this one is my fave tons of work..

There usually is for thre first three months at most..then nothing.  I have no problem working on the hard accounts, but when it gets down to $30-$50 a day at most, it gets very frustrating.  One spends all day logging in a looking for work to find one or two jobs.  When you can't pay your bills, you have to move on.  I want to find a company that consistently has the work...have yet to find it.....

I want to learn Spanish so when go to my fave
Smoky Mtns are my NEXT fave place in US!..sm
Spent a lot of time in TN, Smokies back in the 80s, when my child was little....Dollywood, biscuits and gravy, Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, I love TN and NC.  Probably my 2nd fave place in the US. 
Who R your fave music artists/groups?
I looove Joni Mitchell, Karla Bonoff, Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Dixie Chicks, Elton John, Beatles, Eminem...
This is my all-time fave. You can do partial names also
and it will list all the doctors with the same names, and then you choose the appropriate one. I cut and paste the doc's name and addresses into letters. Super easy.

Working 6/hour days, 5 days/week I make
$42,000.00, but the work is there to make more if I want to.  I'm in the southeast. 
2000 low days, 4000 busy days
Did 43,000 lines last month.   6 doctors. 
You can "make a living" if you work 16-hr days, 7 days
and if you rarely buy anything but food and the barest essentials in clothing. My balancing act is so precarious that all it'll take is one of life's little disasters (rent increase, sick pet, major car repair) to pull the rug out from under me. Not a good feeling at all.
Christmas tree blobs are my absolute fave. Send some to me. nm
Yes, Live, his fave group - and the lead singer is his *idol*.
Works great for me. Fave voice file player is an
Candy corn is my fave, but not the Sam's Choice stuff. Eww. The only chocolate I really love is S

what's on Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. I always wonder what it is that they do to their chocolate to make it so good.

dinner at her fave restaurant, with LOTS of camers, and everybody bring their own ideas.

550-650 lph on average. Some days more, some days less. It all depends. nm
How? By working 12-hr days 7 days/week?
You lose out if you don't get
paid for spaces.
Before you lose it....
Call her up and politely ask her where she got the number of your HUSBAND and then ask her if she knows the other person is married.  He really may have been snockered and not even remember giving it.
Lose him

Yeah - - don't think I haven't thought about leaving the situation

whatever you do don't lose that job! sm
There aren't many jobs like that anymore! Good for you.

Can I ask what state you live in? Just curious.
It's so hard to lose a pet
I'm sorry for your loss. My own old girl Tildy died on April 21 and I miss her so much. Last week, I finally adopted another dog, and we are going to be great friends I know, but I still miss Tildy. I probably would have put off adopting a new dog longer, but a friend of mine sent me a *comic strip* called "Shelter Stories" - it shows this dog lying there with his eyes closed thinking "I'm afraid to open my eyes. I'm afraid yesterday was ALL a dream and I'll wake up and still be in the shelter. "Sigh, okay, I've got to open them. Here goes...one, two, three! it's a picture of this dog lying there on a nice soft bed and when he opens his eyes, there's a person there too, just smiling at him.

Sometimes we're all each other has. I hope your heart feels better soon.
I don't need to lose weight, but I definitely need to
You could probably lose 10 lb. just from exercise. SM

Go to www.collage.com. There are hundreds of good exercise videos.

I could not get into t pep rally thing of WW.

You won't lose anything with the upgrade.
You won't necessarily lose your job,
but you will get the absolute worst dictators and dictation possible. All the good stuff goes offshore and we get what's left. And make sure the account you're offered pays for headers and footers to make up for them not paying for spaces. No all accounts pay for headers and footers, and that really makes a difference.
Lose 5 lbs. I saw the doc last week and
gained 10 this year and was already overweight, so I'll start this week by losing at least 5 lbs.
But don't you also lose money when...
you are paid by the line, and you are sitting there waiting for Mr. hem & haw to start talking again? When you are paid by the dictation minute, you are paid for the length of the sound file, whether the ditator is talking or turning pages or hemming & hawing. I had a few times when I had a 20-minute sound file, which I was paid for, even though there was only 5 minutes of dictation on it!

Also, you know EXACTLY how much money you will make on the report before you even start typing it, regardless of what type of dictator it is.
How to lose an MTSO

Just curious here . . . how to you deal with a MTSO who, for all accounts, seems like they are stalking you for hire.  I checked out the company, realized I was lied to about a number of issues I specifically asked about up front and disliked the platform tremendously.  I gave it a few days – determined it was not for me because I could not be productive and I informed the recruiter that I was no longer interested in working for the company.  Since that time, I have been contacted no less than 3 times.  I cessated my contact after the verbal communication only to be hounded with E-mails and packages via snail mail.  The owner of this company is really starting to scare me.  Personally, instead of running a business, in my opinion, should be running to the psych ward – and quickly I might add.  I have not communicated since I made my final decision – I’m almost afraid to.  What would you all suggest?  I really just want this person to leave me alone.  This particular MTSO is one that seems like the “no” answer is just not even an option.  I have no interest in working for someone with this type of personality and I have no interest in running my business in the red because of a poor platform.  Help please.  Can you report someone for stalking if they are in a different state?  I cannot change my E-mail address as I do have my own business contacts to think of. 

So in other words, pay will be cut, and WE lose. - sm
If the MTSO is bringing in more lines per hour with this system, (and you just KNOW they aren't going to slash their prices to the hospitals!), why cut the MTs pay per line? The MT (who actually PRODUCES the work, after all) should be sharing in some of the rewards of increased productivity, rather than being SHAFTED.
what features do you lose?
I think it's the program I want but what would I lose?  TIA
Call them! What do you have to lose?
I applied to a company I really wanted to work for, waited a week, sent an email, waited a day, called, and was called back an hour later and hired.  The squeaky wheel etc etc.  Good luck to you!!
firm 15 cpl --you will lose it
Sorry but at 15 you will lose it.  Once you get used to the dictators you will easily make $35 to $45 per hour even counting in the delivery time.  Define your line as gross lines with 1" margins and if they want smaller ones, then you revert back and do your line count that way.  If you want to cover yourself, tell them that at 12 cpl you want it written up in the contract that should they cancel at anytime  -- unless it is due to gross errors, incorrect billing (cheating them), not keeping TAT, etc. that they  will pay your average paycheck for the term of the contract. Again look at what you can make per hour not what the cpl is.  If you come across too high, they will advertise and get someone for the 12 easily.   Good luck.   Get it all spelled out ini black and white.  Also go back at 12.5 -- again good luck
Which is why this country will lose its
And quick way to lose your job.
I work for 2 companies and cherrypicking is the quickest way to get taken off the accounts. It is absolutely not tolerated at either place. I would not ever work for a company that allowed cherrypicking.
If you have as much as you say you need to ultimately lose,
have you considered gastric bypass or Lap-Band?
ironic.... it's lose
A Christmas Story is my fave Christmas movie...forgot that one!

Monday - I will lose an account

I just did the stupidest thing.  I could cry but it would not help.  I will lose this account due to my carelesness and not thinking.  I accidentally just erased two "undone" tapes and kept two "finished" tapes.   So on Monday I have to tell the doctor and if I were them I would fire me.   They have been my account for 4 years but have been patient with me at times through some personal problems -- yucky divorce -- and I do a good job at a very reasonable rate but I would not blame them if they fired me.  I just want to take myself out and beat myself silly.  But there is nothing I can do right now and so oneward and upward -- I guess.  But this will hurt as it is my largest account and I am a small MTSO so I will be out pounding the pavement for something. 

Thanks for listening. 

They are both excellent and I would hate to see either lose.
Kind of leaning towards tattoo boy though.
