Into The Future With Frustration

Posted 01-20-2011 at 07:23 AM by caninemom3
Tags dog, jobs, tricks

I am a medical transcriptionist by occupation. This whole month has been a nightmare. Typically work tends to slack off and there are perhaps some slow periods but always by this time in January things have always picked up. Not so this year. I have been with my current company 3-1/2 years. Ever since the 1st of January, there has literally been NO WORK. If I were being paid an hourly wage I would not be this worried. However, I get paid PER LINE. This means that if I don't type there is NO MONEY.

What has happened ?? The company is not being forthcoming, this I know for sure.

I have taken a job with a new company and am both excited and scared. If anything changes in my life I tend to greet it with a combination of those two emotions. Excited because it is still doing transcription at home, it is more money. Scared because I have never worked for this company before and the first pay period will probably be based on minimum wage because it is considered the...

I'VE LEARNED...

I've learned-
that you cannot make someone love you.
All you can do is be someone who can be loved.
The rest is up to them.

I've learned-
that no matter how much I care,
some people just don't care back.

I've learned-
that it takes years to build up trust,
and only seconds to destroy it.

I've learned-
that it's not what you have in your life
but who you have in your life that counts.

I've learned-
that you can get by on charm for about
fifteen minutes.
After that, you'd better know something.

I've learned-
that you shouldn't compare
yourself to the best others can do.

I've learned-
that you can do something in an instant
that will give you heartache for life.

I've learned-
that it's taking me a long time
to become the person I want...

The Tragedy In Arizona

Posted 01-10-2011 at 05:57 AM by caninemom3

I don't understand it. We as a species, people, humans, never seem to learn. We have repeated the same horrible mistakes over and over again. This past weekend, as all probably know, there was a tragic event in Arizona where a disturbed young man started firing a gun. Some people were killed, including an innocent 9-year-old girl and a judge. A public servant was also critically injured.

And what do we do as a species, this human race ?? We start POINTING FINGERS ! This, as well as any other time, IS NOT THE TIME FOR IT. Why do we always want to blame the other guy ?? In my opinion, ALL POLITICAL PARTIES ARE GUILTY OF RHETORIC THAT SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN. Did this rhetoric cause the tragic event to happen ? I don't know. That is where some of the finger pointing starts. I will not point fingers. As a nation, we need to PULL TOGETHER especially in a time like this. Republicans, Democrats, Tea Party, Independents and ALL NEED TO STEP BACK and STOP THE CHILDISH NAME CALLING...

These are real letters to God that children really wrote !!!


Dear God,
Did you mean for the giraffe to look like that or was it an accident?
Norma

Dear God,
Instead of letting people die and having to make new ones, why don't you just keep the ones you have now?
Jane

Dear God,
Who draws the lines around the countries?
Nan

Dear God,

Dear God,
Thank you for my baby brother, but what I prayed for was a puppy.
Joyce

Dear God,
It rained for our whole vacation and is my father mad! He said some things about you that people are not supposed to say, but I hope you will not hurt him anyway.
Your friend (but I am not going to tell you who I am)

Dear God,
Please send me a pony. I never asked for anything before. You can look it up.

IMPORTANT RECALL NOTICE

Vital For Your Health and Well-being!

The maker of all human beings is recalling all units manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to the serious defect in the primary and central component or heart. This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype units, resulting in the reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent units. This defect has been technically termed, Subsequential Internal Non-Morality, or more commonly known as S-I-N, as it is primarily symptomized by loss of moral judgment.

Some other symptoms are:
a. Loss of direction
b. Foul vocal emissions
c. Amnesia of origin
d. Lack of peace and joy
e. Selfish, or violent, behavior
f. Depression or confusion in the mental component

The manufacturer, who is neither liable or at fault for this defect, is providing factory authorized repair and service, free of charge, to correct this SIN defect, at numerous...
