Potty-mouths make poor employees.

That's the conclusion of an online poll of more than 2,000 executives.

The survey finds more than 80 percent felt it was unacceptable to work alongside a foul-mouthed colleague.

More than a third of bosses have issued a formal warning for inappropriate language, and 6 percent said they had fired someone for cussing.

Other office bad behavior getting a thumbs-down from the suits included making personal calls, loud talking and revealing clothing.

The survey is from the recruiting company TheLadders.com.
