Alan’s Antics

So Alan has realised that it’s easier just to give me the work and stop subbing out one job to multiple transcribers, thus cutting down on his administration and waiting for last minute deliveries. Do you think he has rewarded me financially for this honour; not a chance! Today I sent him a message to say, ‘This recording has lots of background noise’ – the background noise was due to the fact that the interview was taking place in a cafe, with all the usual sounds of a cafe, radio blaring. Admittedly, yes, you could  hear what was being said but the toll on my nerves was definitely worth more than 55p per audio minute. Alan responded that he had listened to the tape but it didn’t warrant any extra money. I wrote, ‘It’s making my nerves bad … AND they’re eating lunch!’, but no response was forthcoming. As the interview progressed and the respondent ate ‘delicious home-made coleslaw’ and a fucking panini, the interviewer said, ‘Oh sorry, I asked you that question when you had a mouthful.’  ‘Ha ha ha ha,’ he gurgled [food and spit flying, throat full of bread]. ‘The person transcribing this must be having a right laugh!!’ she said. Let me check … no … no laughing here. I reported this verbatim to Alan, adding, ‘I think she is having a fucking laugh!’ (no response).
