Well, I blew up at work today

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I couldn't take it anymore. The crew was out in the shop as usual and all I could here was F#@& -Son of a @^&*$- MF-!!! This happens every day, SO here I go out there and said quite emphatically (loudly) "Is something really wrong or whats up!!!? I'm tired of this launuage every single morning!!!" It was the owner of the company who had been talking; I knew it too, but so what? I am certianly no angel and use colorful launguage sometimes myself, but this just got way out of hand.
Probably not the best time to ask for a raise.

The did stop. As a matter of fact, things were very quiet. Awhile later other owner (owner #1's ex-wife) came up to me and said "Thanks, now he's mad at you and taking it out on me." O well...

Theres a guy in our sales office who uses the "F" word everytime he speaks!.

I've often said "Can you not string a sentence without swearing?!"

It's not that it shocks me but i think why????????

I'm guilty of this.. but i usually ask to make sure it's OK with the people I work with.. and if not I tone it down. I rarely use the "f" word though unless it's like a ':censor::censor::censor:' kinda thing.

When someone in my vicinity speaks with language like that, I usually just look them in the eye and ask if they eat with that mouth too.

Good for you. I cannot stand to hear language habitually used in that way either. OK, sometimes people swear, I can live with that (not that I do it myself, I just never have) but that kind of gratuitous bad language just grates on the ears doesn't it! Fortunately, it's not an issue where I work as it wouldn't be appropriate.I hope you don't get any backlash for standing up for a little decency and common courteousness.

Good for you for speaking up! No reason for you to have to listen to that all day, every day!
Most of us let a word slip here or there, but when doing any kind of work where clients or "outsiders" are involved, best to keep things PG-rated. You never know who may be listening!!! We had another advocate who was fired b/c he was speaking with someone who didn't mind rather crude language, but someone else overheard him speaking and reported his choice of words....the boss was told....end of story.

Good for you! If the owner of a company I was about to hire/employee used language like that - I'd show them the door.

People like this drive me CRAZY. Seriously, handle your own problems...she should talk to the guy, not to you. And if she MUST bring it to your attention, she could try discussing it constructively, not just throwing sarcastic sentences in your general direction....I think the last time I started a sentence with a sarcastic "Thanks", I was about 10 years old and got an earful from my mum. I used to think that I would only have to put up with immaturity until I grew up, but now I know - the whole world is one big Junior High

Hand her a box of Ex-Lax and say "Here, go make him a nice pot of coffee, that should keep him off your back and on his backend for a bit." *evil grin*

When I took a welding class last fall-when we would take a break and all go in the school's break room thats all I heard!! I am guilty of it myself at times-but these guys were really bad-on in particular they were taking about their girlfriends or lack thereof-I wanted to say-well could listen to you talk I don't know of many women who would put up with that type of language!! I think every other word was "f* this or *f* that. Thats not really a way to impress a woman!!
I'm glad you spoke up!!
