Office Language

The coworker who sits right next to me (in open-top offices) curses repeatedly and profusely all day long.  Not like single expletives when something goes wrong, but a few choice words repeated about 10 times each in rapid succession, 20 or so times a day, in addition to other profanity not usually found in the professional office (such as "Jesus F*cking Christ!!").   This woman has the same job title as me but is about 30 years my senior.

If you sat next to this person, would it bother you?
Would you say anything to her?
If so, what?
Do you think excessive or repeated profanity is appropriate in the workplace where others can hear you?
