I'm guilty of saying a few choice words. Making no excuses, but I worked 40 years in 2 industies where men are men, and very few men don't curse in some form at work. Mechanics, machinists, welders, construction workers, they all have a tough enviorment and tough work. You make a mistake or bang yourself, you get cut or burned everyday, you just say F^%$# and keep on truckin. Maybe its a product of a military hitch, where foul language is mandotory in that culture.(at least in my time) Unfortunatly, bad habits stick, and thats one of them. When you don;t have to watch your P's & Q's (old saying that should change to F's & Damn's) you usually don;t until your Mother is within a ear away. Laugh Nowadays, that doesn;t even matter. 🙄

I worked with a few men over the years, who never cursed and were from a different generation where even the most tame of curse words were never said in the company of women and children. Thats a standard, nearly extinct.

We seem to have evolved into a society where the F-word to many is as common as it comes, and nobody is spared hearing it.

2 things that get me going is drive in fast foods that can't get your order right but rattle off 5 things to try selling you. and people laying on horns when traffic can't possibly move.

I started swearing as soon as I read this thread and realized that I just wasted 2 mins of mine time on it. 😀

I swear way too much, especially for a female.(Mom calls me a "trucker mouth"..not proud of it, but I am what I am)
Just get me in traffic and the swearing will start at some point.
Recently my H was driving with my son, some guy cut him off in traffic and he lost it a bit, at this point my son turned to him and says something like, "daddy yells in the car too..just like mommy"
H got great joy in relating this story to me
A proud moment for me, let me tell yah
