Because it is?
Am I saying that no one swears ever? No, of course not. But in general, in most jobs, people don’t swear all the time. They don’t swear in front of their bosses. They don’t swear in front of customers or other people.
For Scott to say that it’s “extremely” difficult for him to not swear during a podcast or YouTube video is ridiculous.
When I go to the doctor, she doesn’t say to me “How’s your fucking back?” She doesn’t ask the PA for my “fucking chart.” When I leave, the person at the desk doesn’t ask me about “my fucking co-pay.”
When I go to a restaurant, the server doesn’t ask me if I want “fucking milk” with my tea or coffee.
When I go to Home Depot to buy filters for my AC, I don’t ask the employee “where’s the fucking AC filters.”
When I went to my local comic shop this weekend to buy some books, the guy sitting behind the counter didn’t say “Check out the new Fucking Batman book.”
When I go to the mechanic, a “blue collar” job, the customer representative doesn’t ask me “what’s fucking wrong with my car,” or tell me that “it will be fucking ready by Thursday.”
When you’re in a professional setting, it just doesn’t happen and it’s not appropriate. If anyone one of those people in my above examples had said those things to me, I wouldn’t be angry, but I’d be shocked. Those mechanics might be in the back swearing informally, but I never hear or see that.
I work for the largest bureaucracy in the United States, the Federal Government, and I can assure you that if you swear at work, people are going to think you’re unprofessional or worse, and if the wrong person hears you, they might make a complaint to HR. I don’t know what world Scott is living in, but in the world I live in, EVERYONE is very conscious when someone swears in the wrong setting.
And even if you swear occasionally with your friends, which is fine, it shouldn’t be that hard to not swear if you want to play by Youtube’s new rules.
