Posted:We just had a survey here in New Zealand and Ambulance officers and fire officers came out as being two of the most trusted professions. I do not know who was the last on the list, maybe politicians??

What about School teachers, Doctors, Lawyers, Tradesmen?
Do you trust them in general where you live (not just one or two)

I trust these people in my local area

Fire= 95%
Ambulance= 95%
Police= 50%
School teacher= 50%
Lawyers= 50%
Doctor= 25%
Tradesmen= 15%
Car sales person= 10%
Politicans= 0.03% (on a good day)

Posted:TRUST: Teachers, Clergy (unless Southern Baptist Televangelist), Civil Rights Lawyers, Environmental Lawyers, firefighters, airline pilots, most scientists, and politicians (just kidding!)

DON'T TRUST: Doctors (that surprise you?), Lawyers other than those mentioned above, cops, any sort of bureaucrat or administrator, car salesmen, and anyone working for a government agency (I trust soldiers, though).

Posted:Car Garage Engineers.

Every time I take my car to be serviced I can sense they are taking me as some kind of fool. Throughout the day they will ring me up having found other things that need doing. I don't trust them but I don't have any other way to be assured my car is safe.


Magnus... pay it forward
