non clicky poll: swearing at work

so the guys in my area (including my boss) all swear. nothing extremely crude, but they say "sht" a lot, out loud, for everyone to hear. one of the other guys in my area, when working one on one, he said that something was "fcking annoying"...and that caught me off guard. i work in an office environment..and i just don't think that kind of language is acceptable. don't get me wrong--i don't have the cleanest mouth..but i can control it at work.  i just don't think it's appropriate.

i also work with mechanics and when i'm in the factory, they swear too..they drop f bombs, and other words...but the environment out there is different, and it doesn't catch me off guard at all...i guess it should, but the environment is just different. 

1) do you swear at work? bonus points for telling me which words you use Devil

2) do others in your area swear?

3) do you swear outside of work?

  • 1) do you swear at work? bonus points for telling me which words you use Devil

    Only around a very, very, very small group of select (super close) co-workers and only when the situation absolutely calls for it. Nothing past [email protected] and sh!t. I won't drop the F bomb at work at all. Period. 

    2) do others in your area swear? no

    3) do you swear outside of work? occasionally
  • 1) do you swear at work? bonus points for telling me which words you use Devil

    Occasionally, usually just [email protected], crap (not really a swear, but kinda is for work imo)

    2) do others in your area swear?

    Oh yeah, especially the Sales guys.  I hear the f-bomb regularly, and [email protected], sh*t too.

    3) do you swear outside of work?

    Yes, I try to do it less now since babies are kinda/sorta on the brain, so I might as well start training myself not to.  But my dog knows whenever he hears f*ck, he had better stop doing whatever it is he's doing Surprise

    1) do you swear at work? I don't swear at work (and my co-workers don't think I ever swear - hee hee, if they only knew)

    2) do others in your area swear? They sure do.  But they're only supposed swear in the warehouse, not the office.  If they do and I catch them, they're like 'oh, sorry!'  It's kind of funny, actually.

    3) do you swear outside of work? Yep, in the car a lot and sometimes at home - like a sailor! Stick out tongue

  • 1) do you swear at work? bonus points for telling me which words you use Devil

    My job now yes, I use just about any word [email protected], sh!t, f*ck, hell, a$s but I make sure not to do it when the oldest girl I nanny is around lol 

    2) do others in your area swear? No, the others Im around are to little lol

    3) do you swear outside of work?Yes, like a trucker! I used to work with all men and if you were offended by swear words you pretty much might as well have quit on the spot lol I've always had a potty mouth though oops! lol

  • 1) do you swear at work? bonus points for telling me which words you use Devil

    Yes.  Mostly F*ck or some form of that.  But, I'm a criminal defense att'y and work with criminal defense att'ys -- and my clients, what we see everyday is a little different than a normal office environment and swearing and off-color conversatins are normal, expected and no one is offended.  I sometimes have to catch myself when I'm talking to a juvenile client. ; )

    But, I've worked in other office environments, where I think it'd be weird and inappropriate.

    2) do others in your area swear?

    Yes.

    3) do you swear outside of work?

    Yes, but probably not as much.  Definitely in the car!  It's gonna be the hardest thing to change when we have kids.
