Have you ever been talking to a client, and you seem to be building a good repore with them and then a (4 letter) word slips out and the conversation stops!
I was listening to another Realtor talking with a potential client I had introduced to him. And after about 20 minutes of selling his services...out it comes...the F...word.
I was a bit startled, but I knew that my friend was going to be disinterested in this Realtor the minute he heard that word.
I didn't think it was something to mention to the Realtor friend...that my friend was very religious and didn't think much of it. But after word, my friend was appauled that this "professional" had said that.
I am not much of a swearer. When I was young, after being repremanded for swearing, and asking my dad why can't I swear, everyone else seems to do it? He stated, "people swear because they lack the intelligence for a better term".
So, is it ok now adays to swear when you are in a professional or Business setting?
