Well, it has not worn off all the way.
Recently, I was on the phoane with a supplier who sent one wrong component, and it was a pretty good frick up (not my fault, I specified something, they sent something else, it was already installed...pretty big issue.)
I am muttering under my breath... "shit, shit, shit...." and was told "there is no need for that kind of language, please dont talk like that." I apologized.
