    She took away Snickers and banned cursing.

    Now there's a manager who knows how to get through to the troops!

    Looks like it's time to start spelling out curse words with the first letter of each line of copy.

    According to the commercials, you give Snickers to people to stop the swearing.

    No Snickers, but what's her take on Peppermint Patties?

    Sometimes it's best to go straight to the comments section on a story like this. Pure gold.

    We tried that at my shop, putting four or five "healthy" choices among the candy, cookies and chips of the vending machine. All those choices did were sit there and gather dust, while the other stuff sold even faster, since there were fewer junk food choices.

    McDonald's and other fast-food places have discovered the same thing when they put "healthier" items on the menu.

    You can't force people to eat their f*#$@& vegetables.

    Do people regularly curse in your workplace?

    Do you work in the 1970s somewhere?
