Unless you're in Austin, TX, then you say 'motherscratcher'.

Given current I.R. law, I'd posit that the going rate is about $100,000 per motherdamnation.

Have you seen the monthly sting on a Maserati SUV?...

Huh. An entire article that comes down to "Read the room & use whatever works, with moderation."

If someone is f*cking a coworkers mom it is appropriate.

Well, today I made it 17 minutes before I needed to step outside and swear to myself about a coworker. I should have been more productive and let the motherfarker in question know exactly what I was thinking.

This isn't going to be a good week.

The more infrequently you use swear words the more impact you have when you do. Keep them in you emergency locker until that emergency arrives, then deploy.

I live on one end of the spectrum or the other. It's either "gosh" and "jeez loweez" or "f*cking hell".

I have a co-worker who was in the army for 20 years. We're in IT in a professional setting and one day I heard him casually throw in the word "fark" while talking to a new VP. I was aghast.

I used to work at a place where my boss was always saying "Oh fudge".  The funny part is it was a chocolate factory.

I am in academia as a staff not faculty member running a lab.  Texted a grad student that we had a successful result from one of his experiments.  He replied Farkin Yea!  with a thank you.

There is a reason I work in academia.

My favorite preacher uses, "oh, SSSSS  pit."

I do some part time work for a church, and everyone as had to get used to me.  They've met my kids, and know exactly why the profanity flies at times.  The only other time I speak my exact thoughts are when a major print job fails and I have to do it again, using pre-1980 equipment.

I have heard fairly senior folks at Microsoft do the same thing. F-word & S-word bombs were uncommon, but did happen. But, this was 20 years ago, in a decidedly "boys-club-of-self-lionized-nerds-cum-​martyrs-to-the-cause" environment.

Especially if you're not willing to compensate your people appropriately.  It doesn't cost anything, as long as employees are discreet about it.  One of the things I liked about my last job was that my workmate was an attractive Cambodian woman in her twenties that could and would swear like she'd just dropped a box of paper on her foot.  You'd be working along in your cubicle, and all of a sudden she ran into a snag and it was, "God DAMN IT!!! What the F*CK IS THIS???"  Always got a laugh out of me, because she looked like the last person to let something like that rip.
