My only real issue is with the soft c0ck comment. For me, it's more than feeling uncomfortable. It's illegal. expecting people not to swear is actual legal. I work in open plan and swearing is forbidden. We're not a bunch of fuddy duddies at all but we are asked to be respectful and also acknowledge board members are constantly wandering around. It's just not on.
As an aside it appeals to my sense of humour that a librarian is defending the loud raucous working environment. Don't you have to practice saying "shhh!" Before they let you be in charge of a library 🤓 😛
