Professionalism--100 Words


I’m struggling with seeing that these days.

As my wife has looked for employment, I’ve watched people lie to her.

No. They didn’t soft-pedal anything. They didn’t try to spare her feelings. Or bend the truth. Or tell a “white lie.”

They lied. Outright lied.

Where’s the professionalism in that?

Call me naïve. I’ve always thought that people who were promoted to important jobs had a certain amount of professionalism about them. So much for that philosophy.

Has it always been that way? Did I not see it? Maybe it’s shame on me. Or, maybe it’s shame on them.
