Post by mysty »

Is it acceptable to swear or is it just the moron is un educated and unable to express oneself?

I've worked on plants, in control rooms, offices, executive meeting rooms.
I have worked in English. American, German and French language.
I have worked with English, French, Spanish, German, Austrian, Danish, Pilipino, Kazakh, Polish, Dutch, Belgian, American co-workers
And in every permutation of those, I have come across the occasional (at least) use of a profanity when things were going less than well.

The language was colourful this evening,when we had someone drop their GCS and it went from mild concern to major panic in seconds. Never let it be said women don’t swear

Having worked in the building industry for all of my life, a lot on housing estates with many nationalities, yes I swear when things are not going well as do all in the trade.

Isn't it part of the rhythm of the job like stopping for a tea break?

It depends on your job.... If you work in customer service probably best not to swear 😂
Sitting on 500kg+ of misbehaving horse I have found using the foulest language imaginable in a calming sing song voice is a great tension release for human and animal.

From experience I think it safe to say that in the military swearing at least 3 times per sentence is compulsory.

The men are just as bad.

My old man didn't swear much at home but he could fit bloody into Sauchie - bloody- hall Street.
I worked in places where you swore when things went right.
