WTH??? 57% Of Employers Less Likely To Promote Those Who Swear In The Office

Awwwww (BLEEP)

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.
