Since some grown adults can't seem to grasp the concept of behaving in a mature fashion while at work, her are a few tips. And yes I'm venting.

Be Reliable

Punctuality is an important trait of a workplace professional. Arrive early to start the workday and always be on time for meetings and work-related social engagements. Complete assignments ahead of deadline while inquiring about the next available task. Perfect the ability to multitask. Devour training opportunities that will keep skill levels above the competent level and ahead of the curve. Earn the reputation as the person to go to when the job needs to get done and it needs to get done right.

Be Polished

A true professional in the workplace dresses the part, speaks the part and acts the part. Come to work well-groomed with attire that is clean, pressed and in good condition. Communication skills are paramount. The benefits of a public speaking course will last throughout your career. Learn proper etiquette for all social situations. Your actions and appearance reflect your workplace. Do everything you can to make your company proud

Practice the Golden Rule

Professionalism in the workplace is evidenced by the way you treat others, including management, peers, customers and vendors. A professional is known for honesty and integrity. It's the recognition of a peer's accomplishment and giving credit where credit is due. It's presenting a customer with a win/win sale that is fair and equitable to both parties. It's fair and honest negotiations with a vendor, recognizing his worth while making a good deal for your company. It's the display of respect for a manager who mentored you and taught you the ropes. It is the golden rule: treating others as you wish to be treated.

Join the Team

Teamwork is the basis for success in any workplace. A true workplace professional is always willing to carry his weight, share ideas and pitch in to help other team members as needed. A professional team player takes the initiative to recognize the efforts and accomplishments of other team members while remaining humble about his own. He also avoids gossip and office rumor mills at all costs.

A workplace professional exemplifies a positive attitude. Though the workplace can be stressful, the professional focuses on ways to move forward and succeed by overcoming obstacles. When there is a crisis, find the silver lining and create strategic plans to prevent a recurrence. A workplace professional learJoin the Team

Maintain an essence of pride in your workplace and speak highly of its accomplishments

Hey, remember if you have tattoos, show them to your prospective employer, they love that. especially if you got some on your neck or face.

Understandably there are some professions were tattoos that are uncoverable such as those on the face, neck, or hands, aren't suitable. But an employer can't act on their own personal opinions.

Like hell I can't! Why do you think the New Orleans Police Dept has ordered all cops with tats have to cover them with clothing or make up. Professional sports teams this week announced they are consulting tattoo experts to check new hires for unusual or gang related tats.

Just because someone has a tattoo doesn't make them a bad or uneducated person. According to statistics brain.com about 45 million Americans have tattoos. Most that were obtained in their youth and don't want or have the few thousand dollars it costs to have it or them removed. While taking measures to cover them up isn't asking too much.

I remember a standup routine that Gallagher did years ago where a guy in the audience was heckling him and he called the guy a Mexican and the guy lost his mind and started screaming at Gallagher. Gallagher apologized and said " I'm sorry sir your not a Mexican are you? You have a tattoo, your a F#ck!ng idiot!" I thought I never would stop laughing! He nailed it!

People can chose to inflict their perception of what is right or wrong anywhere or anytime. How the response they get directly reflect their socialization after infliction.

If you wanna go that route then you must also include eating fattening foods that make you obese, make-up in excess, sodas or alcohol, medications, and the list goes on.

OH and if some one messes up guess what God forgives so why can't you....
