According to a recent study by Norwich's University of East Anglia , swearing at work encourages team spirit. Here's a quote from Professor Yehuda Baruch:
"...our study suggested that, in many cases, taboo language serves the needs of people for developing and maintaining solidarity, and as a mechanism to cope with stress. Banning it could backfire."
Finally, a "recent study" with information I can use. I think this afternoon I shall choose a random co-worker and tell her to "get the hell out of my way."
As she cowers against the wall, I'll smile and refer her to my blog post (which she should be reading daily anyway, the bitch). I'll tell her that, "I'm only trying to maintain a little solidarity, gotdammit. What the hell's wrong with YOU?" Then, I'll ask her if she has a fart-snotting problem with that.
Where's that little short chick who probably can't kick my ass...
