At home I swear like a sailor

It made me laugh when I posted a discussion that used the word "friggin" in the title and a friend commented on how they had never seen me use such strong language. LMBO! If they only knew that at home, sometimes I swear like a sailor. Naturally, I can't use the language I sometimes would like to use on this site. When you are at home, do you use those "special" words or are you really adept at keeping them sacred in thought only?

Oh my, we are made of the same mould then kbourgerie, because I have a mouth like a sewer!! I am awful, and so is my hubby and we rub off on each other! Now I make myself sound bad, because I have 4 children, but we are careful not to swear in front of them but when it is just me and hubby then I am afraid that the air is blue. In fact if we had a swear box then we would be rich and have no money problems at all!

LOL. Thats too funny. We've talked about a swear jar too, but we are afraid that if we institute one we'd have to put all of our money in it.

Oh I think I have my moments when I use 'naughty' words I think we probably all do but it isn't an everyday thing. When I was growing up we used to have a next door neighbour whose every other word was the F word so we actually nicknamed her 'Mrs. F ing' but she was such a lovely lady and was almost comical with how she said it. Ellie :D

My stepmother was funny like that when she swore. It just never seemed to come out right. So when she was mad and swearing like a mad man, we were laughing just as hard. Her words just never made sense. She just didn't seem to know how to form a sentence with them.

I sometimes use it when I am really in a bad mood. But only if I am alone at home. There small kids around, so I have to watch what comes out from my mouth.

I know I have to watch my mouth around my son. He tries to get away with swearing, but doesn't get too far.

It all depends on who is in my company but I can use some pretty colorful language myself. I don't use it around the kids or my parents though. My husbands family is different; maybe because they had all sons. But the boys all swear in front of their parents. My husband and brother will swear around my dad and my dad will swear around them; but not around us girls (me and my sister). My husband laughs at me when I am shocked to hear a story re-told and my dad is using the F-word. My ex tells me that he says it around him too. I have never heard it. I think it is kind of funny and a little sweet.

I too am guilty of using horribly foul language. It's a product of my upbringing in Scotland where the "f" bomb is used very casually in everyday conversation. I am able to contro myself 99% of the time around my kids, but the occasional one does slip out, I confess

I use bad language IRL but not so much online and definitely not when I am typing on a site like MyLot.

As a child I never heard a swear word uttered in our house once. But I used to spend my summer holidays in Devon with two aunts. Now they weren't huge swearers as they were throw backs to a pre-war Britain and on the surface appeared very prim and proper. When I was about 13 I was promised that I could make toffee apples, but they asked me if I would mow the lawn first. I completed this task and just as I was putting the mower away I was stung on the ear by a wasp. I let rip with some very fruity language that I had learnt from school. My aunt just stood there shaking with laughter. She said that she was delighted that I knew these words as she had been longing to swear in front of me for years but was frightened that she'd have to explain what they meant. We don't swear a huge amount at home. But yes, Effing and Blinding is a common enough occurrence chez p1kef1sh. But I don't like to hear it shouted in the street. Especially by women. Now isn't that old fashioned.

LOL. Hard to admit but I sometimes do swear like a sailor at home. When the project just got some trouble and I had to troubleshoot and faced more problems, couldn’t solve them right away, I would spit out some words I cannot use when I’m online or when I’m on some open places (in the midst of other people). Well, I want to say that I have this bad habit, and still on my way changing it. I just fear one day any kids would hear me swearing the words and ‘cursing’, accidentally, and then they learn using the same words. If their parents would ever find out and then the kids say that they have heard the words from my mouth, well, that won’t be a cool situation to experience.

I dont swear like a sailor...it takes a lot to make me mad enough to swear. (darn and dang dont count as swear words) Getting caught swearing makes me blush. I'm more likely to use the word Freaking than anything out or GEEZ and SHOOT or darn rather than words alot of others would consider swear words. My grandma when she was alive every other word out of her mouth was a swear word of some sort so i know ALOT of swear words.

well at home I am myself. I do not use the words every single sentence I speak if you know what I mean, but I will use them to make a strong point. The impact is bigger that way.

Well like you katherine I can swear like a sailor, and do at times. But the best one I know is my older sister that girl, can say just about all the offensive words in one full swoop, use to make my mom crazy. hehehe... mom always warned her that if she didn't stop her kids would take it up. Darned if it didn't happen one day, her sweet little 3 year old looked up at her angry and said Oh sh**, Pi**, F**k. Now needless to say that even made her jaw drop. So she tried to not swear like a sailor. But in the end, she still is lmao. Some habits are just hard to break I guess.
