I try to stay fairly professional in the workplace, especially the more formal setting I'm in now. I'm also careful about my language around folks I don't know, because it's the polite thing to do. Lately I've noticed that my co-workers have used a few curse words in my presence. The comfort level must be going up.

They probably got a clue the other day when I was shouting at my computer, swearing up a blue streak, in German.

Really. Now there's a factoid about you I don't recall reading about. German, eh? Das ist gut!

:) Not much more than some swearing and random words left.

I used to swear in French. Until someone popped up the head like a gopher over the cubby wall and told me pronunciation sucked.

In French.

I generally use indirect pointers, shouting things like "The seven words you can't say on television" or "language that would make a sailor blush" rather than calling up the actual words.
