The Use of Foul Language at Work

Hey there. We spend most of our lives at work. There is no doubt about it. Sometimes, our best judgment eludes us when we are pushed to our breaking point. Here are some pointers, from Human Resources of course, of how to go about those trying times. lol Enjoy.


Dear Employees:

It has been brought to management's attention that some individuals throughout the company have been using foul language during the course of normal conversation with their co-workers.

Due to complaints received from some employees who may be easily offended, this type of language will no longer be tolerated.

We do, however, realize the critical importance of being able to accurately express your feelings when communicating with co-workers.

Therefore,a list of 18 New and Innovative 'TRY SAYING' phrases have been provided so that proper exchange of ideas and information can continue in an effective manner.

I received one of those lists in an email at once. It was funny then and is still funny now because you know we've all said those things, even if just under our breaths.

Have you seen the one "You Might Need to Pray at Work"? It reminds me of that one as well.

Those are great. I'll be saying "that's interesting" quite frequently at work now....lol

I laughed at this; partly because I've used many of the suggested phrases. Guess I'm a bit too PC at times
