I swear. That’s it. I swear. I’m not afraid of letting fly with a few obscenities. But only around folks I need to ….motivate or an comfortable with.
I’m a word guy and I don’t see the need for ‘bad’ words or whatnot, but I do realize that they offend some people so I keep a lid on it.
However, I’ve noticed I can’t go anywhere it seems without hearing the dreaded f-word. No problem for me, but for others there are. The Wall Street Journal’s Daniel Henninger had a column a while back that I’m too lazy to look up and link to that questioned whether a society with our history that can’t confidently saw “Merry Christmas” deserves any prosperity.
I’m wondering in the same vein about a quality of a society where you hear f&$k more than Sir or Ma’am. I never hear those words.
