Scolding in the offices of Wester Europe

Postby IOP » Wed, 19 Jan 2011 3:10 pm

I work with British and Aussies in the office, and it's high pressure on my ears, because they scolding too much.
So nice looking guys with so bad words in their mouth.
It's interesting what is the scolding level in the western part of Europe?
I've started to apply for jobs in Norway and Switzerland.
Are they scolding too much in the banks sector?

Could you give an example? Westerners tend to tell it like it is rather than pussy foot around. I often find that when a westerner expresses their dislike to something the local looks like they've been slapped in the face with a wet fish and doesn't argue their case back.

It's not the case of the local person being scolded, it's just that a westerner will say exactly what's bothering them. I have noticed that locals do not like being challenged about anything.

OP posted the thread twice, this was the first attempt with "western" missing the n and everybody else replied to the second one with "western" spelled correctly. It's still there.
