We Just Started A Cuss Jar At Work. If You Cuss It Cost 25 Cents A Word. You Deposit The Money Into The Jar( 5 Gallon Water Jug). At The End Of Each Month We Are Going To Give The Money To Charity. The Girls All Wanted To Give To Breast Cancer Research, I Wanted Rails To Trails. So We Are Going To Make It A 50/50 Split. So Far After 1 Week We Have 15 Dollars Raised. Not Alot Of Money Yet But People Haven't Changed Their Cussing Habits Yet. So We Should Have A Nice Total In 3 More Weeks.

5 gallon jug? That is a lot of cussing.<br><br>
It isn't to bad here; but, I imagine if we counted, a few people would have some nice tax write offs.

When I was a gymnast, my coach had a "Can't" can. Same concept, but I think the price was lower as a) we were kids and b) we're talking 25 years ago.

our resident born again has a cuss piggy bank. He used to shake that thing at me when I would cuss, it lasted untill I asked what Jesus thought of extortion. Hasn't said a word about it since.

My boss says we should just drill a hole in the floor so the swear money would go straight down to the basement. People at my work have very dirty mouths - they don't make jars big enough!!<br><br>

We have a cuss jar at home. It was put there because DH's parents are potty mouths. Not really bad four letter words but stuff like crap and hell, etc etc I don't want my 3 and 5 year olds to hear. The jar is very full and their potty mouths are gonna pay for my kids college.

Even though I can deal with language constraints, I'd find the idea of a cussing jar so condescending and offensive that I'd either be working to get rid of it or looking for another place to work.<br><br>
Compared to places I've worked before, my current workplace is tame enough that on the somewhat rare occasion someone does let one slip, they usually apologize. Personally, I find the cursing refreshingly honest and the apology entirely unnecessary and slightly annoying. I miss working at places where the language was even more free.

lol, I love when people wearing WWJD, are jacked up. Cut me off in line? now, would Jesus do that. Yell at the check out girl? again good lord<br><br><br>
Ours is a workplace that encourages cussing. Not your typical workplace I know, but not your typical job. I'm often telling people... "go ahead, tell me where to stick it...call me what it is....great 10 more. You forgot Thank You mam may I have another" C's day isn't right unless he get's a "<i>you f'er</i>" or a "<i>gdsob</i>" before breakfast

I don't swear much at work now, since I'm in HR.<br><br>
But I was first in the city shops with the mechanics, then in the PD. And my hubby's a former sailor. I'm kinda doomed.<br><br>
I am god about not swearing in front of my nieces, at work (mostly), and in real public places. But I pretty much say whatever the hell I want otherwise.
