There are young kids in my shop that have all the credentials, but I would never ever call them a professional. They managed to memorize the questions on the test and got a certificate. It only takes one job to figure out that they have no understanding at all of what they are are doing. They have been lucky so far that I have been around to bail them out.

    My boss who is a manager and by no means a tradesman thinks they are so great, but he has no clue as to what they do. When I voice my concern about these guys, his only response is that it’s my job to make them professionals. I’ll probably be dead and buried before that ever happens, at least with these two. I’ve been tasked with the job of teaching many a new guy over the years and some have it and some don’t.

    I keep telling my boss that I should be the one interviewing these guys, because when you’re talking about stuff that I know, I know BS when I hear it.

    Sorry, I just had to put my 2cents in. I'm done.
    Johnny, why are you offended by our wanting to keep an area for professional members free of non-professionals?

    All of the young persons who are working in our industry professionally deserve to have the influence of those of us who have been in the industry forever and a day. I too have 40 years in this industry and I have no problem whatsoever showing my credentials in order to discuss our industry with other professionals.

    Please reconsider and become a professional member so others can benefit from your years in the trade. Who knows, you may even pick up some things from some of these young ones who are doing things differently then we were taught.

    I think it was probably the way he called him an idiot. It's all in the tone of voice you use
    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    Twilli can. That more than Twilli usually gets.
    Twilli needs to remember that Admin* is the one that does all the conversions, I think Twilli may need to split that C note!

    47000 plus posts divided by 3 bans, not bad odds at all. No wonder you tripled your 3 dollars at the convention.
    You sure are cocky for a starving pilgrim.

    Perhaps you should have read the instructions before calling.
