Sanity check.
Guys and Gals... Is this normal to hear from your co-worker things like (will try to translate to English):
"I don't know about your sex life, but could you stop fucking around with this website and move to the shop site?"
and
"Don't fuck around and just do it"
I hear this from a guy who is not a programmer.

    @starbear hmm sounds like it may just be a pretty non-formal workplace. If you don't like it I would just tell him. My last job was pretty non-formal. There were a lot of expletives thrown around. Now I work corporate. I could get in trouble for talking like I used to here.

    Just be happy you have the freedom to say things like that. Here in america we could never get away with that.

    To me, it sounds pretty normal for people to talk shit like that. Doesn't matter if they are co-workers or not. It's more important how you deal with them.
    Never allow people to talk shit to you. Otherwise they will add more and more to that.

    Of course, it also depends on "the way they say it".

    @skprog nah, just depends on industry and culture. I am in the US. I have had a job where people talked like this.
