The two biggest thing that people like about me is that I am a complete virgin and I never swear. I find swearing distasteful. No one has ever heard me swear because I have never done it.

OK, I feel like Ms Trash Mouth after pub's post, but some would probably be shocked to find out I swear like a wounded pirate.

I voted for #3. I generally try to remain a fairly eloquent speaker, but, especially when I get mad, I will start swearing every other word...lol. Aside from anger, you'll rarely hear a swear word uttered from me.

No, I try not to, but I could care less if others do.

Though when that kid from my school threw a tennis ball at my car I let a few slip

Can I say that I'm a wounded pirate but only occasionally?

Yes, I swear. I can put a truck driver to shame. But, I don't swear on a daily basis or in every conversation I have. It also depends on who I'm talking to. If its someone who normally doesn't curse, I try not to. However, if its someone like my mom or my sister who belong in the pottymouth hall of fame, I'll let it fly.

I DO NOT swear in front of my grandmother

I don't swear at family gatherings

I *try* not to say fuck in front of my kids but it slips

I never, ever lose control and curse someone out...well, maybe twice in my whole life.

I DO curse badly when I'm alone in my car. A certain word that starts with the letter c and ends in "sucker" flies out almost uncontrollably if someone cuts me off. Its not pretty and I'm not proud of my filthy mouth



hehe...I might add that Doozer is a CHAMPIONSHIP cusser

Remember when I would have you call people at my work and cuss at them to make them laugh?

Currently it's: "Yes, but never to curse someone out."

But somedays it's: "Yeah, like a wounded pirate."

I ain't got no problem with people cursing but it does fell weird when I'm with my parents and someone curses.

I've given up caffeine, I've given up eating meat, but I can't stop swearing. Been doing it since the fourth grade. My roommate and I used to joke about the cloud of profanity that surely hung over our house. And when my sister and I get together, it's even worse and more creative. I even swear in front of my parents, because they don't give a .
