I swear, honestly!

While I do occasionally cuss under my breath (most often after a bad night's sleep when my emotions run unchecked), I have little respect for people who swear on a regular basis.
Granted, there are times when I think swearing is acceptable, but folks who swear for effect constantly or out of habit all the time... I just don't want to be around/listen to/read their blogs.

Times I might consider it acceptable to drop the f-bomb:

  • after being involved in a traffic accident
  • if you are fired over something your supervisor did
  • when someone puts your child in danger
Times I might consider it not so necessary to drop the f-bomb:
  • when talking about the weather
  • when you get an ice cream freeze headache
  • because you broke a nail
So, while I really appreciate some of the very funny blogs out there, I just can't read them if every post is peppered with unnecessary language.

I'm no prude, but c'mon.
If you have a gift and/or a talent, don't disguise it with poo.

I hate to admit it but I swear like a truck driver. I'm a little better now that I'm a mom but I'm sure I've droped the F bomb over a broken nail(yesterday in fact).

On the other hand I don't feel the need to use that language in my blog (most of the time. I had very rude things to say about the guy beating his dog on the side of the road but that was a special case). I don't now who may read it. What if it was a child? There is no need to inflict that on others.

Actually my Uncle's a truck driver an has much nicer language than I do now that I think about it.

::adds "witnessing animal abuse" to list of okay times to swear::

You could also throw things in that situation, I think.
