Actually, it can be fun. The people are usually colorful and fun loving. I don't go overboard cursing but am certainly not above letting go if something goes wrong or whatever.

I've also worked a lot in office or "professional" settings where you had to be careful of what was said. Too uptight for me. Too each their own.

I try not to use foul language as much as possible until discipline goes
out the window.

Having said that , I usually lose discipline when I get really mad
and in recent memory I've only gotten mad when Hax provokes me.

Also lets not forget it is entirely appropriate to use foul language to alleviate some pain. Research shows this is effective, it's not just an opinion.

He once sent me a private message and called me disgusting names.

Oh, wait a minute...

I got it backwards. That was me calling him disgusting names .

I once said that the greatest trick I ever played was fooling the world into thinking I wasn't trolling.

I don't think I have ever been on a construction site and not heard at least some cussing and sexual explicit ramblings.
Most of the time its all in good fun.

I was on a slab crew many moons ago and worked along side rod busters all day long.
You would not believe the things they would say. Even I was embarrassed on occasion.
They would talk about each others wife and even their daughters. Talk explicitly.
But they were best of friends. I think they wanted the reaction they got from others.
Good guys to hang with at the union check cashing bar after work.
They always had my back.

I even brought them a "fickle finger of fate" once after going to lunch with a girlfriend.
They talked about that for months. I got lots a cred for that.

Many countries have rules requiring certain High Vis clothing be worn on job sites, whether industrial of not.

When I first read that article about the vulgar comments, I immediately thought "Oh, this is a satire site, like "The Onion". But then I realized ALL of the articles were about Mennonites in Manitoba, Canada, and I started to think "Huh, maybe it's legit!".

Then I drilled down to this article:

... The little blue pill was a street drug until now, and was known to make young Mennonites absolutely irresistible even to their own second cousins.
Yep, it's satire...
