Have you ever used vagularities at somebody in public before?

I think I lack of confidence and afraid to speak out in public. I don't like the sound of vagularities especially in Hokkien dialect. To be honest, I cursed before, but only when I am really angry and it boils over my tolerance level. Other than that, the percentage of me swearing at someone is near to 0.1. I have yet to shout out loud in public, and I don't wish to do so. I have hear others done so before, youngsters, even my mum do that too when she is really mad. I hear people say vagularities in Cantonese is rather pleasant to the ear... My lecturer mentioned that if you offend someone in Hong Kong, and you hear a string of words thrown at you but you don't understand yet it sounds nice, you most probably have been cursed and swear at till even somehow it's your mother's business or something. So have you swear at someone before? Especially in public?

So far, i have not swear at anybody in public except for once, whereby i scolded someone in public, till she cried.. hehe ^_^ However, no vulgaritites are uased because i'm not someone used to some words.. lol =D I'm a gentleman.. lol =D Most of the time, if one is not fluent in that particular dialect, we wont really hear them swearing that much, except for some occasional f- word.. hehe ^_^ But for older generations above us, their kind of swearing is common, because that's what they learnt in the past.. lol =D

LOL.. Quoted "...,till she cried..", and you say you are a gentleman?? You scolded a girl in public? Why is that so? What did she do lol? Ya, i agree, our older generations are bought up in harsher environment where vagularities are used very often.
