Here is why you should swear at work, according to science

1 Share

Go ahead and drop the F-bomb—it will just serve to show that you’re more authentic and trustworthy plus a few more positive things.

It’s something Americans do about 80 times a day according to a 2016 study. Yet more so than walking into a meeting 35 minutes late with a fresh latte in hand, swearing in the workplace is still seen as taboo. In fact, a 2015 survey found that 81% of employers believed swearing at work “brings an employee’s professionalism into question.”

Nice, been trying MyRadar the last week or so which is decent. Unfortunately neither MyRadar or this app appear to show hourly rain/snowfall amount forecasts, just daily summaries. The Wunderground app showed hourly until the latest update which is...pretty bad.

Just last week, I was rear-ended by a Peterbilt truck that had stopped behind me in an intersection and later forgot my car was there because the driver could no longer see my car in front of him. He proceeded to attempt to "close the gap" in front of him. Because this was a massive truck made from steel, even a 5mph (my estimate) collision did significant damage to my plastic bumper and gave me minor whiplash that lasted about a day. I am not enthusiastic about the ever-increasing size of vehicles.
