Who\'s on first?
“I spent the whole day today driving 3 hours each way to an exam and taking the darn thing. So now I have to sit here and do the work I normally would have done during work hours. No sleep tonight. I'm a little loopy already from intently staring at the screen for so long and from drinking so much Red Bull and coffee.
Sometimes in editing transcripts I get some pretty funny stuff. Here's one from the transcript I'm working on tongight. At least, I think it's funny. But I'm a little out of it at the moment.

“Tonight I'm working on a transcript of a dep of a rehabilitation vocational therapist. They are discussing the voc rehab client by the name of Mr. Cox. I have found that my translation software got it wrong in a lot of places and rather than an "x" it translated it as a "ck". So what I keep seeing is something like this:
"So in terms of Mr. C*ck, you do not draw any conclusions as to whether..."
It's amazing what poor Mr. C*ck has been through. ;D”
“My aunt Caroline's in the same line of work. She has some funny ones like that too. She does all the on site work, and her husband transcribes everything for her.”
“She is so lucky. The transcribing is the part I hate the most.”
