The Buzz: Swearing at work

When it comes to professional behavior, foul language doesn’t usually come to mind. But, it’s not an uncommon sight, these days.

For example, the Oscar nominated movie “The Wolf of Wall Street,” chronicles the life of Jordan Belfort. Belfort is a stockbroker living the extreme high life involving corrupting the stock markets.

In the film, the characters swear at work. A lot. The film is full of curse words. In fact, the f-word is used 506 times during the three hour movie.

What do you think about swearing at work? Do you think profanity belongs in the modern-day workplace?
