No Cussing At Work: What the [Bleep]?

By Anthony Balderrama

One of the first realizations many professionals have early in their careers is the divide between personal preferences and the workplace reality. You don’t have to be a genius or even moderately intelligent to quickly realize that you’re an employee when on the clock. You don’t get to do whatever you want. The company tells you what to do, not the other way around.

Please note: We don’t advocate you becoming a mindless drone. We’re just saying that the boss sets office hours, dress code and other guidelines. If you walked in the boss’ office and said, “Hey, you need to get here early tomorrow,” she’d probably laugh at you and then hand you a pink slip.
