“Fucking” is no longer a thing in the workplace, but the idea still permeates workplace culture, and some workers have adopted the term as a way to express themselves.
According to the New York Times, the term “fuckin’ at work” originated in the late 1990s when the concept was adopted as a derogatory term for “assholes” in a workplace environment.
As more and more people started to use the term in workplaces, it took on an even more negative connotation, and a handful of people have gone so far as to use it to refer to employees in a disrespectful manner.
In addition to the backlash, the usage of the word has become more prevalent on social media.
A recent post from Facebook user Jai Prakash wrote about how he uses the term to express his own frustration with being fired from a job.
Prakat wrote that he was fired because he didn’t get an email saying he had been fired, but he decided to use his employer’s word against them because he felt that he didn.
While Prakats dismissal has been well-documented, a new study by University of Washington researchers suggests that the usage has also reached a higher frequency among workers than the researchers had initially believed.
In the study, published in the Journal of Applied Psychology, researchers examined data from a sample of workers who worked at five different companies.
Researchers asked workers to complete questionnaires on their work experiences.
The results revealed that a total of 5,074 people responded to the survey, and the majority of respondents used the term fuckin’ in their responses.
While the study focused on the use of the term, it revealed that the word “fuck” was used by an additional 2,079 people.
This may be an indication that the number of people using the word is more widespread than previously thought.
While there is no data to support the existence of a wider use of “fuck,” the researchers do point out that the use is not restricted to workplaces where the term is used.
It also appears that the term’s use has increased across different industries.
The study also revealed that fuck was used more often in a range of workplace settings, with the most common usage being during meetings.
As a result, this finding may point to a wider acceptance of the phrase.
