It's officially an I.O.U.

SO my mother had this 'wonderful' idea to have a swear jar for lent ("If you won't do it for Lent, do it for your porr mother" she said) and everytime my family swears, or even uses the slightest bit of foul language i.e. stupid, shut-up, shit, damn, crap, etc....it's $$$.

Really bad words = $1-$2 a piece
Shit, damn, crap - 0.50 a piece (except for my little sister who only has to pay 0.25 because she has no sense of income).

We've had the jar one day.

I already owe $5.

It's going to be an expensive 40 days....

I don't swear

at least not that often, and usually when I do, if I do, I just say it to myself

yeah. I've got to learn to swear in the confines of my room, or at least, when no one can hear me. In the car, maybe.

I use 'stupid, shit' etc all the time, as filler words. I swear, they have no meaning to me.

The only thing that's even better is that my dad owes something like $12.50. We figure we'll have enough to go out to dinner by the end of the 40 days.

Lent sucks.

Damn.

Your mom counts "stupid" as a swear word?

Wow. And I thought my parents were conservative!

It's not a 'swear' word really. More of just not a good thing to be saying.

Besides, I have a 13 year old sister. She needs to be caught for SOMETHING..she doesn't say the other stuff yet, so this is pretty much all she's got...

I hate this already.

I'm almost 29 and if I swore in front of my mother she'd start to cry. My sister on the other hand, every other word out of her mouth is a swear word. She's the baby of the family. the baby gets away with everything. even when the baby is 25..........
