BLOG - Isn't the drive-up window SUPPOSED to be faster?
I just got finished sitting at the drive-up window at the bank for 15 minutes
-- there were no cars ahead of me -- just three tellers that either were bored to death, wanted to be personal friends with
each occupant, or simply had no respect for the driver's time.
If I wanted to shoot the bull or chit-chat
about what I was going to do this weekend, I would have parked my car and gone inside the bank, where I wasn't burning up
my gasoline and sending fumes into the atmosphere with my idling car.
Unless you want to bury your money in the
ground or sew it into your mattress, banks are a necessity. However, just because I deposit my money in your bank, doesn't
mean that I want to spend what little time I have, answering meaningless questions that you aren't really listening to the
answers, or trying to sell me the latest bank promotion -- wow- what an oxymoron that is considering today's economic situation.
Take my money, deposit into my account, give me a deposit receipt and let me get on my way. [end of blog]
I thought I was moving ahead when I made the decision not to renew my membership/profile
on the numbers notary site. However, I was recently told about the drama still involved with my original profile being deleted.
For whatever reason, probably thinking it will damage my reputation in performing "general" notarizations
for the public, Jeremy has now written a review about me. Critical posts??
Hey, what can I say? -- you
know, I'll take the free publicity -- which is exactly what it is, since my membership expired the end of July. General notarizations
are booming. THANKS! [end of blog]
With a typing speed of 120 wpm, Carolyn Bodley began
offering independent contractor/secretarial and transcription services to the Denver metro legal community in 1992.
I am not a court reporter or medical transcriptionist and I don't
videotape depositions -- I'm strictly a legal transcriptionist which means putting spoken words on paper. All my transcripts
contain a certification stating that to the best of my knowledge, belief and ability, the audio/video I received has not been
altered in any way, and the transcript is true, accurate and complete. I have never been advised that
a court rejected one of my audio or video transcripts. If my transcript is rejected by the court, you will
be reimbursed in full for my services. Because I certify that the transcript is true and complete, the entire audio/video
must be transcribed--I am unable to transcribe "just a portion" that you need.
that your transcripts will be typed confidentially, accurately and with attention to detail at a fair price.
Discovery is often turned over in a format other than hard copy.
This discovery includes, but is not limited to, recorded telephone conversations, police interviews, depositions, investigations,
witness statements, and more. The audio and video "words" need to be put to paper,
and your already overworked legal staff often don't have the skills, equipment, the inclination or the time.
Discovery is often the deciding factor of whether a
case goes to trial. Most of us hear, but do we listen? Recently I transcribed a video that had been viewed and listened to
several times and by several people before I transcribed it. There was a one sentence statement that not one person caught
-- this one sentence was not the only reason the case was dismissed one day before trial--however, it carried quite a
bit of weight -- and I'm the only one that "heard" it. Had the video
never been transcribed, how many other words would never have been heard?
