Do This…and Wreck Your Career

I was recently perusing the illustrious webpage for the San Francisco Chronicle, and there’s a great article on how swearing at work might cost you that promotion.

While mores in the workplace always seem to change over time (Mad Men is no longer a reality in most places), 81 percent of managers will call an employee’s professionalism into question if they are observed frequently dropping inappropriate language.

We always seem to return to the same standard though: if you can’t say something nice, it’s better to say nothing at all.
