Default Most/Least Honest Professions

Here they are, according to a poll at AOL: http://news.aol.com/dailypulse/12140...00010000000001
As a nurse, I agree that we are the most honest -- we have to be to get our work done.

I agree, Cat...

Where would we be if we had to watch out for nurses smugglin' out kidneys & such out of the ER or the gold out of our mouths while we sleep in the hospital?

They didn't even list my profession...lazy bastardos...

Unbelievable... first of all, that anyone would rate congressmen as more honest than car salesmen (there's stereotyping for you!)... and second, that anyone would rate advertisers as more honest than anybody! Do these people have any idea what advertisers' jobs are?

...Obviously not, or they'd all be out of business....

Unless you're some "pill popper" looking for an easy loot! (little "Meet the Parents" for ya! My sister's a nurse and I always call her that)

Politicians as a whole are the least honest of anyone.
Most honest I think would be Nurses.

Ravana began to hit on this a little, but I have to say that anyone in sales is much less honest than your typical politician. Politics is salesmanship with hopefully principle behind it.

Right... but advertising is an entire industry where one lies to the customer—on purpose—just carefully enough to not be considered actual lying.

Advertising is far and away the most dishonest people. Advertisers are just more "honest" about their dishonesty than politicians are....

What about the world's oldest profession? That has to be pretty honest.

There's a definitive naivety to the idea of honesty in some of the choices. There's some, especially in politics, where one has to weigh what that livelyhood has to barter to get what. It's not reality, just that it's a simple choice of 1 or another.

Just like in TV ads that rely on telling what a certain candidate voted on. These bills go in as bulk & actually sometimes it was a choice of the lesser of 2 evils....vote for a bulk bill if your more important choice has some lessers that you have to live with to get 'em. Doesn't make it right but it's how the game is played & understanding how some politicians try to get things done by choosing such when the options are limited.

Life wasn't supposed to be fair & it proves it isn't...everyday...

I would rate my own profession but I say anything to shut 'em up.

I'm in war-like conditions though.

Actually, I rather suspect the opposite: I have no proof, but I imagine they spend a lot of time faking.... :lol:
