Nothing. One of the managers here is a pastor at a prominent Sydney church and swearing is highly frowned upon. Not even allowed Triple J on the radio because they discussed abortions once.

Shit, what kind of price is attached to each expletive? I would probably be contributing to 80% of the contents tbh.

I once said a cuss word at work, I calculated the gross profit before tax assuming depreciation had been calculated correctly by Dave our accounts guy and to my dismay after the numbers didn’t balance I realised that trusty dave (I say that with sarcasm as he isn’t trusty in the slightest) didn’t take into account the personal use of the car and depreciation implications that went with that

Well I mumbled to myself friggen Dave…I think Diane heard me and as a result now have the label of office bad ass

In answer to your question funk...a crazy dilbert work poster for the office

It depends - if it's swearing in conversation with my boss, one of my reports or another manager... probably enough for a house deposit.

If it's swearing with clients or during meetings with them, probably enough to buy a new car to park in the garage of the house i just put the deposit down on.

If it's swearing at clients behind their back then i'd have enough to fly the new car to my new house in a private jet.

I don't swear at other staff or customers on a regular basis... so i'd wouldn't be able to fuel either car or jet. I could harvest the farts from the tradies in the workshop to methane power both, though. So it all works out. I'm going to get me a jet!

I had a swear jar imposed on me by one of my previous bosses - it lated 2 days.

Anyways... in answer to your fucking question - the shitting **** money should go towards a fucking decent carton (or multiple cartons depending on how filthy your dicking mouths are).

Don't really understand ppl who are all up tight about swearing. As long as it isn't at someone designed to offend or provoke them. I work in kitchens so swearing is like breathing. Have been doing prac at a high school recently and plenty of letting of steam swearing I the staffroom there. I don't want ppl in customer service or trendy stores swearing when serving me though.
Mmm not sure if I contradicted myself just remember when I was in jb the other week and the punk was telling me my choice was fucking shit and I should get the more expensive option.

Working with printers I'd say we would need more than a jar - a huge bucket may just cover it.

How much per swear word? say 1 dollar?

on average about 300 a week. stock brokers arent shy to let the cursings fly, depends how bad the market is doing, so lately up towards 500.

This 'mentally challenged but not retarded' girl we had at work 1-2 days a week started a swear jar one time, she thought it would be an awesome idea.
Now I swear like a motherfucker at work - because shit always goes wrong and thats how I talk in general conversation, its bad but I cant help it, she'd always say "oh put some money in you're swearing"
Fuck that shit, it was all her own money in that box anyway.

p.s I work in the beverage industry, so when people dpont get their booze they get pissed off - then I have to deal with them.

Swearing is an everyday occurrence in my office, nothing really out of the ordinary.

Same deal as derpy here, total sausage fest of a workplace so everyone swears all the time. One guy rocked up this morning walking a bit stiff from training the night before and one of the bosses says, "fuck were you having anal sex last night or something?"
So yeah we'd have a pretty awesome booze fund.

I'm only 5 days into a new job so behaving. Swore heaps at the last job because everything there was crap. Being told not to swear when angry is :grr:

Used to have a job where **** and fuck etc were used in a professional context. Blurred the lines on the use of a swear jar....

I used to have a job where I used the acronymns FOCCA and CEX. I could keep a straight voice while saying "He performed a CEX and a GLOBAL CEX before downloading the files onto a PC.". I had to say FOCCA with a nasal emphasis on the first syllable.

Swearwords are like terms like "take the discussion offline" and "going forward". Unless you're having an online discussion or literally going foward, they're not the appropriate words and they're annoying etc.
