Lincolnshire and rest of East Midlands swear the LEAST in the UK

Is this surprising?

Lincolnshire and the East Midlands are the least foul-mouthed people in the UK, a new survey has claimed.

Findings from of all places the Soap Supplier reveal that Yellowbellies are among some of the most mild mannered people in the country.

Residents of Yorkshire, London and Wales are in most need of washing their mouths out, coming top of the list.

The average Brit swears just over nine times an hour, or once every six-and-a-half minutes.

The survey, which polled 2,000 adults, found that men swear slightly more often than women, (10 times an hour, compared to eight times an hour).

However, in the East Midlands and South West, people admitted to swearing on average just seven times an hour.

This contrasts with the worst offenders, who swear 12 times an hour, or to put it another way, every five minutes.

Interestingly, one in three people said that they had been sworn at by their boss, and another one in five admitting that they had dropped an F-Bomb (or something similar) in an interview.

One in two people who work in the media also said that they had regularly used swear words at work.

However, we can assure you that we are not bringing Bomber County into disrepute with any foul language!

Nicky Story from Soap Supplier said: “It appears swearing is a big part of our everyday language – but there is a time and a place.

“Dropping the f-bomb at work may be your way of letting off steam, but it may be also offending co-workers, so make sure to gauge the cursing culture in the office before you turn the air blue.

“In some situations there really is no excuse for bad language – make sure to wash your mouth out before an interview!”
