    Has anybody noticed that this word seems to be a favorite for a lot of people on here? Can I wear that out at work? No...thats unprofessional...Dont put that sign on your truck...its unprofessional. Dont say that...its un professional...Granted some of the stuff may be, but it seems that this term is thrown around quite a bit when it is not neccesary. Just my opinion.

    In some areas there is so much competition professionalism is very rare and separates the men from the boys. I consider myself a professional but many others could care less. So to me its very important. I feel most aren't professional enough. So I guess I'm one that throughs that word around a lot here.

    People can be as "unprofessional" as they want as long as they do their work in a workman-like manner in my opinion. So if they can do a great job working out of the back of a station wagon, who's to say that it's wrong.

    I believe there is a fine line between unprofessional. I try and be as professional as i can but sometimes i step over the line. I also think that what some people believe might be unprofessional others might see as normal and vise versa. As long as you dont look and act like your going to do a home invasion on the property and do good work you will be fine.

    Between unprofessional and what?

    That's bad grammar to leave a sentence hanging like that.

    Very unprofessional :nono::nono:
