So I had to laugh when I saw this Potty Mouth “work of art” award.
And it had a real potty in it too!
It reminded me of some foul-mouthed, but fun-spirited colleagues who actually used to keep a scorecard in the office with tick marks for each occurrence of cursing by person.
Let’s just say that there were some clear winners on this account.
In many cases, they did it as a vent for all the frustration at work and also because they thought it was funny.
I remember my dad who was very religious and he used to say jokingly and with a big smile:
“Don’t use that f*ckin language with me!”
Growing up as a Jewish kid even from the Bronx, it was never really an issue for us.
Although even I have to admit that sometimes hearing someone get really angry and spewing off like that — while not appropriate, it does let you know where their head is at — at least for that moment in potty time. ;-)
