    Looking down your nose is not a professional body trait - IMO it is a trait of a person

    Most people are nice, a few are blooming horrible and best avoided as life is far too short.

    When you do have to interact, always do it with a huge smile on your face. It winds them up something rotten :lol::lol:

    I so whole heartedly agree with this one!

    I met a lady the other weekend, and it was just an experience that will be with me for a while!
    As said by Elaine, sometimes it's just best to smile and let it go!

    I think it is hard work to be horrible. It takes more muscles to frown than smile - I think I must just be lazy :001_tt2:

    And often lack ability so hide behing a qualification.

    Always reminds me of Cartman and his authority...

    ps what are speaking cells??? ACCA must have forgot to teach us these, but we know everything else! :D

    Sadly, ACCA never knew if it were coming or going. Years ago it wanted to be like CIMA (even though most of it's members worked in accounting offices). Then later it tried to be like ICAEW and even tried to merge with them. Gave that up so tried to merge with CIMA (as it is known today). It was so poor of how it saw itself it tried advertising on TV. Yes, true. They are still muddled and it only goes to show what you have said. No ACCA name appears as CEO of any of the top 100 plcs and not one at the top of any government body. QED!!!! However, if you tell the bloke on the Clapham Omnibus that you are an Accounting Technician he know exactly what that means and that you are respectably qualified and not making out you are something that you are not. It's students are the least likely to qualify out of all the professional bodies because of the number game it plays.

    Unfortunately I don't believe this to be the case, this is what half the people on this board complain about.

    Proud to be ACCA and AAT and a nice person who doesn't look down her nose at anyone!!

    And so you should be. It is nothing to do with the qualification and all to do with the individual involved. We all know that it takes a lot of bloody hard work to achieve ACCA (I have read ALL of Glynis' posts - so I know this is the case!)

    I know that I don't have the inclination to study for ACCA, mainly because it would completely muck up my MIP with AAT, but that is to do with their regulations not anything to do with the attitude of ACCA people. All the ACCA people I know are very nice.

    All the posts and monsoon said thanks, lol.

    Well today a client asked in small talk how much better off per week would his people be with the new pay tax code, the menial got it right, the acca got it wrong and even challenged the menial..........oh dear.
  • villapbvillapb Trusted Regular Posts: 357Registered
    Your all so funny here, i seemed to have turned an aat forum into facebook.............oops sorry aat and serious accountants.
  • BluewednesdayBluewednesday Font Of All Knowledge Posts: 1,624Registered
    Whereas we've just taken over books from an AAT MIP where several weeks takings were entered as T9 so not appeared on last quarters VAT which we now have to declare. The client is so pleased!

    We can all think of examples from either way round which goes to show - it's not the qualification but the person!
  • villapbvillapb Trusted Regular Posts: 357Registered
    Thats not good........................but thats an easy mistake to make, but should have being picked up before sending the return, surely the output tax would have stood out a mile on it and the vat amount to be paid.
    You cant beat excel for vat.................lol...............so easy and mistake free, shows how too many rely on sage.
  • villapbvillapb Trusted Regular Posts: 357Registered
    blue, have you noticed my name on here, not good eh.
  • villapbvillapb Trusted Regular Posts: 357Registered
