Swearing hotline launched for angry Germans

275x250.jpg For most people, it would be a bad day at work if someone bombarded you with verbal abuse at you. But for workers in one German call-centre, it's just another day at the office.

That's because a 'swearing hotline' has been launched for angry Germans to call up and blow off some steam by swearing at the call-centre worker on the other end.

The team behind the "Schimpf-los" (swear away) line say they came up with the idea as a way of letting people release pent-up aggravation so they don't take it out on work colleagues, friends or family.

Costing 1.49 euros per minute, operators have even been trained to help extract extra sweary rants from callers with cheeky provocations such as, "That's the third time I've heard that today."

What do you think about the swearing line, let us know in the comments … but please don't be too rude, we haven't had the training of the Schimpf-los staff.
