Does it bother you when people use profanity in the workplace?
Not really. I grew up around it, and my first job out of high school was the US Navy. From the first day of boot camp to my last day in the fleet (almost 9 years), I was called everything but "Chuck". Plus, there is that phase "cuss like a sailor". It only bothers me when people use profanity around children and elders.
Then again, if the workplace is a retail business, then yeah. It would bother me because customers do not want or need to hear that. The employees should conduct themselves with more professionalism.
So, I'm not offended by profanity. I tend to use it too, but I do know there is a time and place and proper audience for it.
Yes...........I simply detest foul language..........anywhere and anytime.
For me, it is the 'dealbreaker'....................
While, I can not dictate to the public at large, I will fire you for it, in the workplace, and dismiss you from my home over it.
If I meet you in a public setting while you are using foul or cursive language.........you have sealed your own fate.............
You will not be anyone that I will take seriously on any level.
Yes, not just the workplace but everyplace. It has become so common to hear any gender use every foul word on the planet. I'm not shocked by it, but I choose not to use it (unless I slam some part of my body in a door or drawer-then all bets are off).

Let say the grocery store or convenient store. That is as opposed to a park or a swimming pool or beach. In other words someone is fully barefoot in what in conventionally an unconventional setting.
