ALLEY OOP By Dave Graue and Jack Bender - MONDAY, JUNE 28, 1 993 — Doctors need to be conscious of image Dear Ann Landers: I simply had to respond to the letter from the medical transcriber who was going bonkers trying to translate tapes dictated by doctors who eat while they are talking. I do a great deal of transcribing for doctors, and I wish eating was the only thing I had to listen to besides the dictation. I have heard gum chewing and popping, apples being crunched, a kid practicing the clarinet in the background and airplanes droning. Some of the doctors dictate while they are at ball games, attending weddings or playing poker. I hope this letter makes it into your column because doctors who dictate should know how they come across. If they are to preserve their image as high-class professionals, they should listen to their tapes now and then before they send them in to be transcribed. They would be embarrassed. — Blushing in San Bernardino Dear Blushing: Your letter was one of hundreds I received on this subject, and most of the complaints came from California. Can it be something they are putting in the water? Read on: Dear Ann Landers: I'd like to add another complaint to the ones enumerated by the transcriber who was upset with doctors who eat Letters to Ann Landers should be mailed to P.O. Box 11562, Chicago, III. 60611-0562 while they are talking into the machine. I am driven up the wall by doctors who mumble, rattle papers, yawn, blow their noses, cough and clear their throats. They don't realize that all sounds are amplified, and they just about break our eardrums. But not all doctors are slobs. Those of us who do this work are so grateful to the gentlemanly physicians who are organized and concise and say, "thank you" at the end. — Mission Viejo. Dear Mission and all others who wrote: I hope the gum chewers, mumblers, paper rattlers and apple crunchers will see this and shape up. Dear Ann Landers? I'm writing about your response to the woman whose friend "Mary" takes her doggie bag with leftovers from her meal at a restaurant and leaves it on top of a mailbox for a homeless person to find. You thought it was "a good idea." Have you lost your mind? Food from your dinner plate is OK for a late-night snack or a treat for the family pet. Otherwise, it is garbage. Please don't think you are being kind when you leave your garbage for a homeless person. If you really want to do a kindness, buy a whole meal or purchase a bag of groceries. Support a pantry for the homeless or a food bank. Skip dessert when you eat out and buy a fresh hamburger and french fries for a person who will consider it a feast. Don't offer them your leftovers. They have eaten out of dumpsters too often. Homeless people need to be treated with dignity. Sad to say, they have been kicked around by life and don't need to be beaten down any further. And those who really want to help can volunteer their services at a soup kitchen or a food bank. There's plenty of work to go around. I am — Also From Boston Dear Boston: Thanks for the clobber. I had it coming. My readers often tell me that they have learned a lot from me. Well, I've learned a lot from them, too. Your letter was a fine example. What's your sign? Astrological horoscopes are for entertainment purposes only. 'Birthday Tuesday, June 29,1993 Noticeable improvements in your material affairs are indicated for the year ahead. Your largest returns could come from situations where Lady Luck is the principle player. CANCER (June 21-July 22) There are two reasons why you're fun to be around today. One, you let people do their own thing and two, if they have nothing to offer, you'll think of ways to inspire them. Know where to look for romance and you'll find it. The Astro-Graph Matchmaker instantly reveals which signs are romantically perfect for you. Mail $2 and a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope to Matchmaker, c/o this newspaper, P.O. Box 4465, New York, N.Y. 10163. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) If you are bottom line conscious today, it will help you to deal more profitably with others in situations where you have something you want to sell or buy. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Today you'll start finding reasons that could help you change a bad opinion about someone you know socially. This will be precipitated by nice things this person will start to do. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)Career and finances are the two areas where you are likely to show the greatest gains today. In some instances matters will be interrelated, in others they won't. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Your leadership qualities are very pronounced today and it could be difficult for you to be a follower instead of the guy/gal up front. Do what your instincts direct. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Usually it isn't very wise to rely too heavily upon hunches in your practical affairs. However, today your intuitive perceptions could be more accurate than your logical evaluations. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) A close friend could be instrumental today in changing your outlook about something that has had you perplexed. He/she will know how to lift the veil. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Try to spend as much time as possible today with friends you think of as being successful. Their ideas and ways of doing things could inspire you to come up with some ingenious conceptions of your own. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20)Over the next few months friends could start to play more important roles in your personal affairs than usual. In most instances their input will be constructive. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Experiencing a lift in your self-esteem today could be the result of the kind way you handled a situation where you choose to satisfy the needs of others above your own. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Being involved with persons whose ideas you respect would turn out to be a positive experience for you today. They could help you achieve both a change of heart as well as a change of attitude. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Your best asset today is your innate ability to change outmoded things into something newer and more functional. This could be with relationships, as well as with materials.
