    So Much Bad Language

     I am so sick of hearing people swearing , I have grown up in some hard times and less than "select" areas in my life. I was what you would call a hard man , But somehow never found the need to come out with bad language, especially not in front of women and children , as...

    Excuse Me..

    I work in a very public world with an host of different cultures and personhoods. Trying to communicate with some is a nightmare at times. No grammar, but fluent in fillers such as the "f" word. No imagination! They can sure spell this word. It seems to add gravity to their...

    It Doesn't Bother Me, But...

    I am so tired of it. I don't consider it a big issue, but I am so tired of people using it constantly simply for shock value. It doesn't shock me, just says to me that you haven't the intelligence to come up with a better word.

    Words

    Dirty words reveal our character, our upbringing (and therefore reflect on our families), show our lack of intelligence, imagination, class, and respect for others. Instead of making you sound "grown-up" , they make you sound childish and immature, and impress no one of any...

    All Swearing Annoys Me

    I don't think the F-word is any worse than any of the other nasty words I hear every day. Swearing is just annoying, no matter what the word that is being used is. In fact, it kind of annoys me when people use words like "fudge" or "shoot" that are really just variations of swear...

    Everyday Word

    Generally, people in the area where I live didn't use the 'f' word that much until around the late 1980s, but since then it's become an everyday word for a lot of people, especially the younger ones. They say it so often it's become a habit and they burt it out in inappropriate...

    Substitution.

    I don't like those bad words, but I can deal just fine with substitutions. If someone says for example "freakin'" or "effin" everyone will know what word you are actually thinking and will get the impact of your feeling. No need to actually say those words that get bleeped out...

    .........really?

    **** that. It's necessary to get your point across sometimes. I see no problem with people expressing themselves using such language....as long as it's not around the children. But really? Who cares? I'm sure there's something that YOU do that annoys people. Would you stop doing...

    I dont like

     to hear excessive swearing ( unless one is in the throes of intimacy ) I find it so unnecessary. Dont get me wrong I'm no saint and will use the word/s on occasion myself -- but I have to be really pushed.   I do have a standard - where I dont swear in front of elders...

    F*u*c*k

    How and when,  did this word become acceptable to use in regular conversation?   I think it's a pathetic substitute for real adjectives.   We have dumbed-down our communication skills to the point of idiocy.    Hey, neighbor kid,  how was...
