CareerBuilder has come out with this survey Swearing at Work Can Harm Your Career Prospects and it looks like if I worked for a bunch of companies I would have to change my colorful use of the English language.
I don’t swear for the sake of wanting to sound like a sailor or truck driver but for emphasis… there are times and places where it adds impact to what is being said
But I never swear at someone… as in calling someone a name. That’s just wrong.
And yes, I am fully aware I need to cut down my use of cuss words.
Results from the survey:
51% of workers reported that they swear in the office
