Watch Your Language At Work

Would you curse at work? Everybody has bad days, and it is important to blow off steam. In some places of employment, such as an office, it might be alright to curse, just as long as you do it under your breath. There are other places, however, where you definitely should not curse.

One place where you should not curse is at a school. Children are very impressionable and tend to repeat what they hear. No matter what your students have done or how bad they have been, do not curse at school. If you do, you will likely hear from parents who are angry and concerned. Instead, consider writing your ugly thoughts on a piece of paper. Get it all out, so that you can feel better. Then, tear up the paper into tiny pieces. The action of tearing up the paper should also help you to feel better. Distribute the torn pieces of paper among several trashcans so that the students will not get curious and try to put them back together when your back is turned. Put some of the torn pieces in the classroom trashcan, some in the can in the restroom, some in the hall trashcan, and some in the trashcan in the faculty lounge.

Another place where you should not curse is at a daycare center. This environment presents situations that make it very tempting to curse. You might be alone in a classroom where the children are taking advantage of you, for example. They might be leaving the room and running up and down the hall. Clearly it is a situation where you need some help. Take a deep breath, and talk to your supervisor about getting some help. By getting someone to help you, you will be able to save your job and yourself.

A third place where you should not curse is at a store. Store employees certainly have days when it seems as though everything is going wrong. There may have been many irate customers today, for example. As stressful as this situation is, do not curse. Many customers would be offended by strong language, and they may decide to shop elsewhere. Also, cursing is unprofessional. Customers often go to the manager when employees are acting unprofessionally. Instead of cursing, keep your feelings to yourself and take a brisk walk during your break. Walking should help you feel better.

If you value your job, watch your language. Everyone you see during your day will feel better if they do not hear you uttering profanity, and you will get to keep working. When you get home after work, treat yourself to a workout so that you can unwind and work off the stress and frustration of your day.

Good one Hollie, between you and Heather you're turning me into a better person. With a grand child at pre school, I'm surprised at the language he comes home with that he has learnt at school. My daughter and son-in-law do not use bad language at all and now they have the difficult task of training their child the right from wrong. I can't believe some parents use those words in front of their own kids. Good Article.
