This article speaks more to the culture here
inside the Beltway. Career Builder is out with a new survey that places
D.C. atop a list that leads the nation in office profanity. DCist
reports, “Nationwide, 51 percent of respondents told Career Builder they
let slip dirty words in front of their colleagues, but in D.C., that
number goes up to 62 percent. Denver came in second, at 60 percent,
followed by Chicago, where 58 percent of Windy City denizens freely
admit to cursing up a storm at the office. Career Builder did not
respond to DCist's question if "swear words" were defined along the
rubric of George Carlin's "Seven Words You Can't Say on Television" or a
more expansive list.” More from DCist.com.
