Hola,



Estoy tomando un respiro. Hay un angelito de ProZ.com que me pasó parte de un proyecto y como me voy de viaje estoy a tope.



Saludos,



JL



Le he a√Īadido mis matices ...

From: Human Resources Department



Subject: New policy using the Spanish language during working hours.



Several visitors to our office (ProZ.com) have brought to our attention that our Spanish-speaking employees commonly use offensive language. Such behaviour, in addition to violating firm practices, is highly unprofessional, offensive both to visitors and employees, and will not be tolerated.



We have decided to implement a series of rules in our office and would expect them to be applied.



It is expected that ALL employees immediately adhere to these rules:



Words like \"co√Īo\", \"carajo\", and other such expressions will not be used for emphasis, no matter how heated the discussion may get.



Non important matters should not be addressed to as \"pendejadas\" or ‚Äújilipolleces‚ÄĚ.



You will not say \"la cagó\" when someone makes a mistake (\'agree\' o \'disagree\' is enough), or \"se cagó en su madre\" if you see someone being reprimanded. All forms and derivatives of the word \"cagar\" are inappropriate in our environment.



Lack of determination will not be referred to as \"falta de cojones\" or \"mariconerias\", nor will a person with lack of initiative be referred to as \"pendejo\", \"mamao\" or \"comemierda\".



No Manager or Supervisor (moderadores incl.) , under any circumstances, will be referred to as \"hijo de la gran puta\", \"ese cabrón\" , or \"ese maricón\".



When a good proposal is presented , the term \"esto est√° de pinga\" or ‚Äúesto es de puta madre‚ÄĚ must not be used.



Unusual or creative brainstorming meetings (trnascending postings) will not be referred to as \"pajas mentales\" .



Do not say \"como jode\" if a person is persistent (posts mucho or contesta a lot of KudoZ), or \"se jodió\" if somebody is going through a difficult situation. Furthermore, you must not say \" que jodienda\", or \"esto está del joyo\" when matters become complicated in your line of work.



When asking someone to leave you alone, you should not say \"vete pa\'l carajo\", nor will you substitute \"¬Ņqu√© carajo quieres?\" for may I help you?



When leaving the office, using the term \"me voy pa\'l carajo\" is not proper.



When any office equipment(Proz.com link) fails, it must be reported as it broke down, not \"se descojono\", or \"se jodió la mierda esta\".



Last but not least, after reading this memo, please do not say \"me voy a limpiar el culo con esto\" , just keep it clean and file properly.



Thank you for your cooperation!!

I can't stop laughing Aug 21, 2002

Qu√© buena manera de empezar mi ma√Īana...ya mi maquillaje se corri√≥ todo, no qued√≥ nada. Mis compa√Īeros de oficina se r√≠en de c√≥mo me r√≠o...y yo me r√≠o m√°s porque me ubico en lo que dec√≠s....



Gracias Pepel√ļ!

Que tengas y que tengan todos un día fantástico.

Pepelu: se te olvid√≥ mencionar que a los compa√Īeros siempre hay que tratarles de \"queridos amigos\" por muchas putadas que te hagan, y a los jefes directamente como \"vuecencia\", con la correspondiente inclinaci√≥n de cabeza - para facilitarles que te den la colleja que te mereces.

Por lo dem√°s, muy acertado, ¬°qu√© co√Īo!

Un fino sentido del humor Aug 22, 2002

No hay nada más difícil que bromear usando el lenguaje vulgarmente llamado soez con fineza y distinción.Te felicito, todavía estoy llorando de risa.
