Two weeks ago a fellow co-worker call me a Mother F!@#%r. This was only because he had tried to get a piece of equipment to work but could not. I got it to work in 5 seconds. I filed a complaint with the director and my HR. I spoke with the director a week later and she said that she did not feel it was hostile and that she has friends who speak to other friends that way. She went on to tell me he had been counseled regarding the matter.
We have a policy regarding profanity to clients and co-workers and it is not allowed. I myself have been suspended for cursing (I’m no saint) and it was not even as harsh as the word Mother F!@#%r What should I do in this matter? I have also discussed the issue with HR and she seems to go with the director.
