Ignorant post is ignorant.

ETA for meaningful content.

I consider professional courtesy to mean a lot of things. Like giving someone a heads up when you are about to do something that may negatively affect them. Or even cause small waves in their shop.

I consider it a professional courtesy to tell someone they are fucked up before I go nuclear option, which is the next higher person up the food chain. I also consider it a professional courtesy that I am given heads up when I am missing something or screwing something up.

"Professional Courtesy"

Can't tell you how many times I have heard that down here in this shithole.

ZFG for the thin blue line.

Meh. Some animals are more equal than others. (And, if you've never been "more equal," you really gotta try it, because it thoroughly rules.)

This is more to the meat of the subject Runcible. In the thread about Holder opposing civil asset forfeiture someone commented that it was because he'd soon be travelling with large amounts of illegal money and wouldn't have the protection of his office (not verbatim, but to that effect). That set me to thinking; professional courtesy as practiced by politicians and lawmakers would preclude the asshole from suffering the same fate as Joe Public if he was to be stopped in that situation.

Professional courtesy means different things to different people - some good, some bad, and there is a place for it to be sure. In government it seems, it is used more often in the context of "look the other way." Interesting how many posters jump to conclusions and become defensive about the subject though.

Its amazing how posters recognize the ambiguity of something, then post something quite vague, only to point fingers at other posters for their interpretation.

There is nothing professional about turning your head the other way.

There is nothing ambiguous about it. How people interpret "ambiguous" statements or situations tells us something about the person, hence, the oft touted "psych eval."

To me professional courtesy is notifying other pawn shops about a guy passing fake gold. Your example of Holder, to me at least, is "working the system".

And that's a good use of the term as well as the act. You are correct that working the system is what's being done in the Holder scenario, but that's not what it's going to be called, because it sounds bad. It's a lot like calling an illegal alien an undocumented migrant.

My 3rd shift work at McDonald's prevents me from delivering pizza for fun and profit. If you guys don't reach a consensus on what I do for work soon I may develop an identity crisis.

That sounds fucked up. As I recall, you're a medical professional of some sort aren't you? Can you expand a bit on the regs and how they limit your discretion? Truly curious about what else the gov't has gotten their dirty little fingers into.

OP is talking about croneyism and nepotism. Most of the respondents in this thread are too dense to realize that's what you're getting at with the scare quotes.

It's bullshit, everyone should be accountable to the same rules. But on the other side of the coin, I know for a fact I've been let off several tickets because of my plates, and I'm very grateful for it, so if I'm being honest I can't throw too many stones.

There are turds in all communities and integrity demands we crush them rather than cut them slack and hide them. When we fail to do so - we being any professional community, from military to medicine - our reputation suffers and our jobs get shittier (ie, more heavily regulated and scrutinized eroding autonomy and common sense).
