PDA

View Full Version : I Cussed At Work

In the office.


At the stack of stuff on my desk.


Out loud.

I didn't mean to say those actual words out loud.

I meant to say:
"Flibberty Jibbit!" and "Turtle Fudge!" and "St. Peter's Poundcake!"

I could have even said "Gosh Darn Gollywonkers!" or "Look at these BullCookies!"

But instead I used language that embarassed sailors three blocks away.




So the co worker in the right office gave me his chocolate kisses with almonds...and my supervisor is buying me lunch.

:D

Sheesh, that never happens when I cuss at work.

Wonder if I'm not being vehement enough...

Why do I have a feeling both the Comedy Cabaret and Mod Forums will be working blue this afternoon?

It happens to the best of us.

I had a co-worker who got so pissed off about something that our supervisor gave him the afternoon off. They were afraid he'd quit on the spot and walk out, but he was just venting.

*Everyone* used to curse where I worked, unless we were in front of the client.

Your coworkers sound nice, Jaycinth.

Well, I, for one, am shocked and appalled. Here I always thought the rule was "respect your fellow accountant."

I never get chocolates and taken out to lunch for swearing. When one slips out, I have to wear a sign that reads, I will respect my colleagues feelings by using professional language (handwritten) not suppressing my emotions when I want to tell them to f*** off.

Since they were having a problem with my vocabulary, HR implemented (Caution: Adult Language) The Swear Jar. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EJJL5dxgVaM)

My mother used to say: Garl Darn Dang Blasted!

It sounded pretty bad when SHE said it.

I was the head accountant for a retired Army Col.

15 minutes before Corporate was to arrive from Virginia for inspection, my assistant showed me a file where she'd stashed all her 'didn't feel like doing' from the past week.

I said things that would have made my hardcore pro wrestler grandfather cringe.

I fired that byach on the spot--and without any pretty pomp.
Oh, and that Col?
He dashed right out and brought back a venti, iced caramel machiotto w/ 3 extra pumps of vanilla from Starbucks. And *sniff* $300.00 towards Office Depot...for personal use. I have a fetish for gel pens, accounting books, and graph paper.

Even now...my WIP...notes are jotted down on graph paper...character maps are in accounting books....I'm seeking help...but Haggis doesn't answer my calls!

I'm evil. I'd fill it with condoms...since you're saying the 'f' word. REALLY piss me off, and I'll add KY...the heated kind...to the lid!

well...the 'longshoreman' part of this.

Swearing is profoundly frowned upon here.

"But you must be very stressed out...we understand...we've given you a lot to do. So don't let it happen again, and you don't need to write yourself up."

Maybe they could move the daycare center to a room where they can't hear the Accountants?

Is swearing in the workplace verbotten now?

Really?

It's bad enough we can't smoke.


But at least I sometimes always check to make sure no-one in the office is on the phone before I talk to the pile of ****ing bunch of dirty ********ing **it on my desk.

Yes. He's the AW Pro-Poster. We refer to him as: QuickDraw McGraw. Catch phrase: If you post it, he will come.

Sailor, remember? If someone didn't curse, folks would be in total shock.

Although I only speak english and a spattering of German and Russian, I can curse in several languages.

So I got that goin' for me.

I know all the bad words in various languages too--including Gaelic! Isn't it funny that THOSE are always the easiest to retain?

WerenCole

I can also curse is several languages. . . . and I was in kitchens for twelve years. It is like the sailor thing. . . and a one-up the other guy thing as well. If you don't say the filthiest thing that you can think of. . . you are an outcast.


Though, today I did not swear at work. . . because.. . . I am currently unemployed. Oh well.

I will swear at you guys instead.


Go Jay! Rock the Casba!
