Swearing at work

I feel wholly vindicated.
Swearing at work helps employees cope with stress, academics at a Norfolk university have said.

A study by Norwich's University of East Anglia (UEA) into leadership styles found the use of “taboo language” boosted team spirit. Professor Yehuda Baruch, professor of management, warned that attempts to prevent workers from swearing could have a negative impact.

But Professor Baruch discouraged swearing in front of customers. [BBC]

I disagree with Professor Baruch, i always swear at "customers". It's the only language they *@@@**g understand.

Shang-a-fricken-LANG? I thought that was a 50's pop song. Were they that bad?
