    Yeah I get what you mean.

    I have 2 guy mates who constantly use the 'F' word in every sentence.

    The bad thing is I pick things up really easily and ive caught myself saying the 'F' word far too much
    Proves exactly what I said on another thread about how dangerous socialising is because the majority of kids these days are bad behaved and swear etc so if you are in a group their is a large likelihood of being influenced in a bad way and I should know because my sister swears far too much, after going out too much with bad friends over the last few years and this also ruined her A-Level results because socialising gets in the way of academic success.

    I think sometimes it's funny, but some people try to show off, just hit them round the face with a spatula x

    I used to swear excessively. Thinking I was all big. Then I realized, I was making a fool of myself and decided to change, by not swearing.

    I use swear words as much as I'd use any word really, so when they're needed.

    So in everyday life I'll say things like S***load or f****** hell as usual expressions.

    Agreed, the odd swear word doesnt both me as I use them sometimes if im angry or have forgotten somethink etc but talking in a conversation I dont think swearing is appropiate at all. I find it quite tacky when you hear those people who swear in every other word, its like their having a conversation with themselves

    I don't mind. But I don't understand how people can get really shocked by a swear word. Especially when it's not regarding them. It's just a f***** word, c****. I joke

    It depends.

    Tbh who's actually really offended by swearing? There's a difference between using it to accentuate your point(e.g. it's ****ing ridiculous) than to use it because you feel the need to do it in every sentence. I watch my language around people simple as.

    I don't see why people complain about profanity so much. The problem is when they use it and it really doesn't suit them saying it like they're doing it to make them look hard.

    gets on my f***ing t*ts

    but srsly, I don't like people saying the c word but I will say "s*** on it" or "f**** sake" under my breath because 1. I really like Friday Night Dinner and picked it up 2. People annoy me and it's better than yelling

    I will yell and roll my eyes at people who do it around kids. I want to start saying heavens to betsy and gordon bennett. Don't like blasphemy either so it's a safe option. Son of a motherless goat is also good.

    As others in this thread have said, excessive use of the C word bothers me. It's so aggressive and unnecessary.

    Huh? Is it because it's originally a "swear word" aimed at women?
    Mmm not so much, it just doesn't sound particularly nice.

    Yea it does bother me, I usually NEVER cuss, so when I do people know its serious. It seems to me when people cuss all the time you can't really take em seriously and be able to tell when they're serious or joking. And just hearing those words make me feel uncomftarble, but I think its more the negative connotation that makes bad words bad...anyways yea it bothers me :P

    I don't mind when people swear on occasion to emphasise a point, but people just seem to swear in all sentences when there are plenty of other words that they could use to mix up their speech. Also it just devalues the word so its not as effective.
    Everything you state is the truth, I find it insulting that people have such a lacking vocabulary in this day and age.
