Being humiliated or cursed out can feel especially demeaning in a work environment. Unfortunately, human resources experts say that today's high stress work environments make these types of unprofessional altercations more likely.

"There are plenty of reasons why people curse in the workplace -- among them [are] anger, frustration, stress, ego, lack of a better vocabulary -- and all of them are bad," explains Chris Posti, president of human resources consulting firm Posti & Associates.
