Subject: Improper Language Usage

It has been brought to our attention by several officials visiting our
establishment in Buenos Aires that offensive language is commonly used by
our spanish speaking staff. Such behavior, in addition to violating our
policy, is highly unprofessional and offensive to both visitors and staff.
All personnel will inmmediately adhere to the following rules :

1.. Words like carajo, la puta madre or me da por el quinto forro and
other such expessions will not be tolerated or used for emphasis or
dramatic effect, no matter how heated a discussion may become.
2.. You will not say la cag?en someone makes a mistake, or la esta
cagando if you see somebody being reprimended, or que cagada when a major
mistake has been made. All forms and derivations of the verb cagar are
utterly innapropiate and unacceptable in our environment.
3.. No project manager, section head or administrator under any
circunstances will be referred to as hijo de mil putas, guanaco, mal
parido, es una mierda or es una bosta.

7.. When asking someone to leave you alone, you must not say andate al
