Talking New study: swearing at work is good for you

from /.:

Quote:
This is the kind of news that your HR folks don't want to hear, but researchers today said letting workers swear at will in the workplace can benefit employees and employers. The study found regular use of profanity to express and reinforce solidarity among staff, enabling them to express their feelings, such as frustration, and develop social relationships, according to researchers at the University of East Anglia (UES). Researchers said their aim was to challenge leadership styles and suggest ideas for best practice. "Employees use swearing on a continuous basis, but not necessarily in a negative, abusive manner. Swearing was as a social phenomenon to reflect solidarity and enhance group cohesiveness, or as a psychological phenomenon to release stress, " the study stated.

Wish I could stop, but the military is corrupting...even when it was years ago You are right though firehawk. Some guys i've worked with in the military are amazing...I never met one guy in college who had a chance compared to some guys in the military i worked with.
