I swear like a pirate around my friends, but can turn it off like a switch. I don't really swear around anyone else.

I swear in code situations - but then again everyone else is as well - they can get very creative

No and I don't like it when those around me swear either.

It depends. I can control it pretty well (never around parents or in work situations), but in certain situations and just around certain people I become a wounded pirate.

The one place where it becomes completely second nature to curse uncontrollably is in my car when I'm driving alone.

Fuckin' A.

Although the only people I cuss out are bad drivers, and then only when they can't hear me.

Yep I swear like ****, sometimes it gets the point across a lot better i.e telling someone to "Go Away" or telling someone to "**** Off". What one would you listen to more.

Yes but only occasionally like when I'm really upset or angry and never in front of my kids or parents, my dad would kill me!

i really try not to and i'm very good about when i cant swear - like in front of parents etc - i'm as good as an angel then!

i work in a very high-pressured but "unstrict" environment.
its gets very manic and everyone starts shooting their mouth off, even my manager who's often heard saying "what the fck are you doing" or "why the fck is this taking so long" or " oh for fcks sake"
in turn, theres no restraint on our side and we're very often heard repeating such things back to her or each other!

ultimately its a stress release - lets be honest "fudge" and "sherbet" dont have the same effect and screaming "FFFFFFFF**************CCCCCCCCKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!"at the top of your voice when everything goes hideously and career-threateningly wrong!

i do have a mouth like a sailor though and i would like to improve it slightly - i'm trying i really am!

That's basically me. But only among people I know. Otherwise, I'm a perfect lady.
