For the past two weeks. I think it's terminal. I'm giving myself two days to live. Luckily it happens to be Friday so that means I have the weekend. Almost every single job I have taken, the witnesses have not shown up. The two that went, the attorney ordered a rough draft, took it, then said they thought it was a courtesy copy and won't pay for it. The other that went, they ordered rush one-day delivery in the morning, canceled it in the afternoon after I had been feverishly working like a maniac to finish it and had finished it. That, added to the fact that NCRA is earnestly trying to put machine writers out of business, has me wondering, is the universe trying to tell me something?

Well, I am done paying dues to National, that's my opinion of all this. They keep trying to sneak this recording in through the back door and now we all have to troop up to Washington to vote it down, when everyone thought the on-line voting we passed would take care of that issue. I have come to the conclusion that National exists for the sake of NCRA alone and does not care about its reporters. They are trying to survive at all costs at this point because they have had a nice cushy job for a long time. My opinion. So I have paid my last dues to National, been a long-time member, too.

When it rains it pours, doesn't it? Hang in there. What is this I am hearing from folks about NCRA and the voice recording certifications? What is your take on it?

No, they are not paying me for the rough because it was an overnight deal, out of state agency and nothing on paper, so I understand that. Got to get a signature. The other, the boss was out that afternoon, so the office manager just had to wait to receive instructions and I heard they are going to do a COD but of course not a rush. It was very short, too, only 49 pages, so it's crazy!

If the firm you work for is a good firm, they will still charge the attorney for the rush and send it to him. I had the same thing happen to me where both days were expedite, finished the first, sent out, finished the second and turned in to office and received an e-mail from attorney saying they settled they don't need. Thank God for the firm I worked for they said she still had to pay since it was already done. Also, thank God for a nice attorney who said she fully understood that she still had to pay for it.

That's crazy, Sue. (((hugs))) How does an attorney think a rough draft is a courtesy copy? Is the firm you took the jobs for going to pay you?
