Default Message from your HR department:

Dear Employees:

It has been brought to management'* attention that some individuals
throughout the company have been using foul language during the course
of normal conversation with their co-workers. Due to complaints received
from some employees who may be easily offended, this type of language
will no longer be tolerated. We do, however, realize the critical
importance of being able to accurately express your feelings when
communicating with co-workers.
Therefore, a list of 18 New and Innovative "TRY SAYING" phrases have
been provided so that proper exchange of ideas and information can
continue in an effective manner.

Sometimes I could use this list. Today I dropped the F bomb and I don't usually do that but I was pissed off.
