    One of my co workers swears in almost every sentence, so I don't think it matters really. I don't typically swear, I like to think of more creative words to express myself. Swearing is so overdone I don't think it has much impact really.

    I use a few key business phrases to replace "*kitten* you":

    "Okay, no problem"
    "Yes sir"
    "Good Morning"
    "Sincerest Regards,"

    Also....
    Whatever you say
    My mistake
    Of course, you are right
    I'll get right on that
    Sure no problem

    All code for bleep you.

    Teeth clenched and eyes bulging out of their sockets

    I have yet to say "I'll get right on that" without sounding noticably sarcastic.

    And my swearing has gone up like 200% since I started this job.

    Example:
    I don't give a flying carpet WHAT you think my job is! You get in my way I'll kick your Ashtaroth from here into tomorrow so back the Fairy off you son of a bisquick! Bloody jack rabbits..

    Never been fired from a job. Coworkers either hated me or found me hilarious. Managers hated me but upper management always said I should apply for a management position. Go figure..

    When we have a pain in the butt client at work we use the time 6:12 to alert each other. Like "Mary don't forget you have a conference call at 6:12"

    I also lapse into French when I'm really frustrated.

    Va te faire foutre is probably my favorite.

    I lapse into grizzled miner speak. We've had small children around for so long it's almost second nature. "Consarn" and "dagnab" are two favorites. I also sometimes use the very Catholic "Mother of Mercy".

    When I'm around kids, I'll say things like "what in the ham sammich..." or "shut the front door" or "shish kabob"
