"Since he left at a break and didn't return, I would not put a parenthetical in the transcript indicating that he left. Assuming that that break started at 11:50 a.m., I'd do this on the title page:
"Boy, it's quite interesting. By now, everyone has seen this. Amazing. Interesting that not one name is familiar, not that I know everybody by any means, but in a group of 30 names of court reporters, what are the chances of…"
"I surcharge $.30/page for anyone appearing via telephone. If they order but don't speak, I waive it. It's a huge nuisance and this is a reasonable & customary surcharge. Surcharges are important because when…"
"If it doesn't work, it doesn't work. I suppose I would just keep clicking continue even though it's possibly not complete if it's hanging up and then email it all and explain that the site isn't cooperating. …"
"It's a giant time-consuming nuisance. I try once and that's it. Then I just go the traditional route of emailing everything. Actually I do that even when the online turn-in site actually works. They hang up and…"
"Jeanese, I was just about to come here to say that I'd say, "Hey, doofuses, I'm taking it down. I'm not the judge here. It can always be sticken later but you'd be SOL if you want it created later," but you…"
"I unfortunately don't offer interactive RT (my hats off to my colleagues who write clean enough to make that realtime feed mostly good enough to be useful) but I'd say that YOU PAY YOU GET applies even when multiple lawyers represent the…"
"It's definitely the same thing, and some desperate agencies are stabbing working-stiff court reporters right in the back by soliciting new clients with this discount of no appearance. I say no and I hope everybody else says no.…"
"The time involved in dealing with exhibits, order forms, and all other paperwork to prepare a package to be sent to the agency is sometimes off the charts. I always underestimate. Everything has to be just right and scanned.…"
"Literally the day after I made that threat to one agency they wrote the check. I made the threat recently to a another agency and was told the check would be going out, so we'll see how I did on that one.
And yes, TY, re the…"
"I had that experience once and I didn't leave out a ton of stuff by any means. It was just barely audible BS. This one agency went through it with an anal/fine-tooth comb and had me add lots of garbage in. So I'm pretty…"
"And then there's the situation where some website has a very oddball password protocol. Or when passwords get stolen (Living Social this week) and passwords have to be changed. Three I don't think would ever cut it."

Marge, I'm looking for a reporter to cover a deposition in Hayti, MO next week, Oct. 6-9. It's the continuation of a plaintiff in an asb case. I'm not sure if you're near Hayti or not, but I'm wondering, if you're not available or interested, if you could pass along a couple of referrals. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'm trying to upload the full shot of this crop, but it's taking forever. It may be too big.
My dad only made it to 67. We were extremely close. I was his secretary and bookkeeper after high school and then when I started CR school, I still did his books. He was an architect. It's so hard to lose a good dad. C. Cipolla lost hers just a few weeks ago. She's a CR student who was the hall monitor for the CRR I took. She's on this site - thanks to me!
Have fun fooling with your pics! My only jobs are Thursday and Friday. That means I have to get all the items on my huge list crossed off tomorrow!
It gets creepy when people use the same good picture forever
Oh, no! My pic is a few years old now!!! I'll have to deal with that soon! I'm deleting the comment with my phone number. I'm findable, but I don't like to post it and leave it up.
So happy you had a few good breaks - and nice meals! Our leftovers were finished up last night, so our shopping list is huge! Alan has promised to shop with me later today. Sharing the burden, so to speak. Gee, I keep meaning to look up my brief for that. Hold on.
Marge, Your website is wonderful!!! I'm extremely impressed. When I clicked on the link for RDR, I got an error message. I'm wondering if the NCRA has changed its addresses. I did find this link over there. If this was the same place you wanted me to go, you'll have to change your site link. Otherwise, Firefox just messed up for me!
Marge, You just let me know when you think you want to start dictating instead of typing for emails and forums and any regular correspondence. Then I'll talk you into getting the big guns so you can edit while in Eclipse. Even for your first pass-through. You do go a bit slower - I won't lie. It's so worth it!!!
