It doesn’t matter if you’ve caught fire…
Just stay professional.
A slightly late strip today. Not a good look if you’re trying to be ‘professional’.
It doesn’t matter what sort of office you work in, they all subscribe to the mantra of professionalism. To demonstrating the work practices and knowledge of an expert in their field. It’s fine if the parameters are well defined, as for a lawyer, a doctor, or an accountant.
But for general office staff, ‘professionalism’ (like beauty) can be in the eye of the beholder. Or in this case, the boss.
The accusation of ‘it’s unprofessional’ appears to be one of those ‘fix all’ justifications for something the boss doesn’t like but doesn’t have a reasoned argument to back if up if challenged.
However, it’s not just the boss that can play at that game…
See you Thursday.
