Kind su­per­vi­sor: I just want­ed to ask you to low­er your voice a lit­tle bit. You must have got­ten some good news on the phone, but you were a lit­tle ram­bunc­tious with the lan­guage. I think you said (whis­per­ing) “shit” three times dur­ing that call.
Em­bar­rassed sec­re­tary: You ask so lit­tle of me, and I still can’t do it. I mean, who has to tell a grown woman not to yell “shit” in a crowd­ed of­fice?
