Unkept
Poor hygiene
Foul language

Foul language
Sometimes, even the most professional lady-like people out there have some bad days... And I they can't help the occasional "you f@cking piece of plotter" when the plotter decides to crash for the 10th time on a row...

Sometimes those people have the luck of being able to use bad words on a language that no one else in the office understands. And it's awesome...
