The F-Bomb: To Drop or Not to Drop?

The ladies of The View recently discussed whether the F-bomb is acceptable in the workplace. An article in New York Magazine argued that it is, so Joy Behar dropped the bomb mid-discussion, loud and proud. The best reaction to an F-Bomb in television history followed, courtesy of the show's resident rocket scientist, Sherri Shephard. Methinks she didn't approve. The question is: do you?

I say, if you are in any sort of customer service it's a MUST. Just not in front of, you know, the customers. Wait until they leave to start talking about what a f*cking douche that guy was.

It definitely depends on WHERE you work. I'm a waitress and there are always numerous obscenities flying around the kitchen. If I worked in an office I think it would be a different story.

I use it as an adjective. It doesn't bother me but I know that it bothers lots of people, so I try not to use it in the workplace. In my case, I work in a customer service "call center", so I have to be very careful... it can be picked up on the phones, so I try not to use it.But, in a casual workplace, where there is no chance of customers hearing, I see no problem with it. (I actually think people should just get over the whole "cuss words" things. But I understand that, at least for now, we shouldn't say them if we want to appear professional.)

If it's in the work place, it's a nice courtesy to use alternative words.
