When Corporations Lose/Squander More Money Than We Can Imagine The Etiquette Should Be Something Like “5.8 Billion FUCKING Dollars”

I realize that when a corporation like JPMorgan has a trading loss of 5.8 billion dollars, it isn’t that big a deal to them. After all, even with that loss they still had a profit of 5 billion. Still, when corporations cost/squander/embezzle or such that kind of unimaginable amount of money…just saying the amount doesn’t cover it. We need to change the etiquette on this to include the word FUCKING.

For example, JPMorgan lost 5.8 billion FUCKING dollars. JPMorgan lost 5.8 FUCKING billion dollars would also be acceptable. Yes, all caps is required.

After all, what this would show is that these corporations can lose/squander/embezzle/whatever amounts of money that are absolutely unimaginable to the average person and yet they don’t have to really care. Personally, I care when I lose twenty bucks. We just need something to convey this to the average person, and just saying the amount doesn’t cut it. It’s too abstract. We can’t understand anymore.

The etiquette would be easy to change, and it would help people understand better. I realize that the amount of money that corporations sometimes lose/squander/embezzle/whatever (seemingly more and more often these days) is a relatively small amount compared to the overall amount of money involved in the global economy, but I think we deserve to have these amounts put into perspective. FUCKING would do just that. Sure, the word FUCKING is obscene…but so is being able to lose 5.8 billion FUCKING dollars and not having to really care.
