I started a new job as a software developer around 3 months ago in a small IT department of a Window Factory in Wales.

Since then, I have become increasingly concerned about the level of language that is in ordinary use, not just from the "workers" on the shop floor, but also from managers and office staff.

I come from a more traditional office job where the worst language would be the occasional "oh bloody hell" or similar. I find that people swear at me in the course of their daily language (i.e. I dontdon't believe they mean to offend), but I feel that it is disrespectful to me to use that kind of language. I am not a prude, - I use the F word in ordinary conversation - but I dontdon't think it has a place in the workplace.

I am considering going to HR, but I believe that it is so ingrained into ordinary use that it wontwon't do any good. Is there anything else that you might suggest I do?
