truly terrible typing

<< Jan 4, 2005 @ 18:01 >>

God, I swear I can't take this much longer. I had to transcribe audio into text today. I will not be a typing robot for $7.50 an hour. I haven't been paid that little to work on a computer since I was 16.

There was some humour to be found in the job though. After spending 15 minutes trying to convert the nonsense the MPR guy tries to pass off as English into written word, I moved onto the reply which was "I'm not sure I know what you are saying." I laughed so hard I nearly crapped my pants. I wasn't sure what the hell he was saying either. The interviewee was a southern lady, who liked to call it a "drive up winder" instead of window. That was also humorous. I did not almost mess my pants, however. I also took joy in translating their nonsense into [unintelligible], though the MPR producer peoples said it makes us look bad if we mark something our interviewer said as unintelligible. Well, you know what, if I can't fucking understand him I guarantee the listeners won't either.

On a totally unrelated topic, I got my host's newsletter today. It contained the following:

And then there was that giant red furry tennis racket with a paycheck for $2,042.13 made out to "Zach Johnson".

I have not received my check or racket.

Finally, I'd like to say that the actress who played Blossom is almost finished with her neuroscience PhD. Crazy.
