I watched a lot of Britcoms when I was little, and swiftly learned that here in the US even teachers don't care if you say "bloody" or "bugger" or "bollocks". So I trained myself essentially to curse in British. Got me out of a lot of trouble in school.

Phony SciFi curse words are a good way to relieve steam as well; the only people who know what they mean are other fans, who couldn't care less.

What I'm trying to say is zark off, you smegging bastiches.

It's a sign of a bigger problem? No shiat Sherlock, it shows an inability to examine your environment in order to act accordingly.

Noticeably F.A.T.: blatz514: I called my boss a motherfarker the other day.

/We had beers after work.
//He even bought

I've called one of my bosses a 'bastardly son of a biatch'. He just came back with 'rheumatoid farkleberry'. We both laughed and continued to work.


..until he needs to downsize. Then, the previously tolerated or accepted personal behavior now becomes a justification for a performance review, which in turn becomes the justification for your dismissal. I've seen it more than once (not to me, thankfully), and it was a common tactic in at least two of the insurance companies for which I worked on the East Coast.

Yes. This. There are times to watch your tone. You have to gauge yourself.


whilke there is a time and place for everything supposedly, i would think resorting to foul language in the workplace inappropriately (some places it doesn't matter) is due to extreme anger or disgust. humans need to blow off steam and vent from time to time. not everyone has a suit & tie job, works with the public or is surrounded by little old ladies. and i'd rather have someone express themselves verbally than take their anger out in more ugly or passive-aggressive ways.

He may have bought you beer but I guarantee you he WILL take your foul 'mouthiness' into consideration if there is ever an opportunity for you to move up to more a refine role in your org and he is involved in the decison making.


This. He will deny you anything in the future that resembles a promotion. Bosses tend to have a file in the back of their head.

DeathCipris: There is a difference in cursing, which I don't understand why people get all bent out of shape over it, and outright being an asshole. Calling out a slow bag girl with a mental handicap is crossing a line and that employee deserves to be fired.


Exactly. If I were a boss, and an employee swore when they stubbed their toe or something, I wouldn't mind (unless maybe it was a customer-service oriented job). But if they swear at their co-workers, or say needlessly degrading things to them, then you bet that's a firin'

Is it because there is candy in there too???

Well about 99% of really good IT shops would be closed down by now then.

The locked door is there for more than 1 reason.

Well there's a big difference between cursing at someone and just cursing in general. If you're cursing people out on a regular basis at work, that's a problem. But if you're just talking about your farking dog that won't stop pooping on your carpet then whatever.

Sock Ruh Tease: Yesterday while grocery-shopping a cashier was telling another rather loudly that he had a "farking headache working with this lady" (the bagging girl at the end of the counter is a woman with Down's syndrome and was bagging kind of slowly) and a manager came up to talk to him, so I'm really getting a kick out of the future replies.
