Team Work: The Bad

Once a precedent is set, it is hard to reverse. Letting team members "emote" among themselves is one thing, but there is no excuse for such permissive language in front of customers or upper management.

Ironically, and behind closed doors no doubt, the manager responsible for allowing such indiscretions will get cussed out and probably thrown out too. I've seen it happen, I swear.
