How do you view profanity at workplace? Something common and tolerated? Does it constitute a form of harrassment?
A new colleague of mine is a frequent user of profanity. One cannot get through a decent discussion or conversation with her without hearing any vulgar words. I find it unnecessary and irritating having to be subjected to hearing vulgarities every day. The problem is compounded because her cube is next to mine, and since I am not one of her bosses, there is no tongue control. Gentle warnings fell onto replies such as "I am who I am". Granted they are not targetted at any human beings... but seriously... why can't some people have better vocabulary?
