I still remember clearly the day, probably 25 years ago, where I reacted to someone’s comment – in front of a group – with, “That’s bullshit, Fred!”
I have to explain that I learned MANY years ago that profanity in the workplace was unacceptable. I left that behind when I got my first career job. The group had never heard one blue word from me before. So why might it be appropriate to react with that much force, especially in front of a group?
