Do you get offended when people swear in front of you?
Really doesn't bother me at all, unless they are swearing at me.
Yes. I'd rather not listen to someone swearing a lot. It really bothers me.
It doesn't bother me, but I don't swear like a truck driver either But anyways, who says all truck drivers swear a lot?
They're just mothereffin' words.
Depends on the situation. Between my friends its pretty natural and flows in the conversation. When its inappropriate then its not good or clever.
Truck driver... I cuss like a sailor.
OMG - It's only a WORD - people really need to worry about the more important things that are going on in this world.
it really depends on the situation that you're in ..... i think im in between yes and no
yeah it doesn't bother me, but it can sound bad in certain situations...
I don't really swear at all, and it doesn't bother me when people do swear. But, it gets annoying when people do it excessively.
Depends. Superfluous swearing just gets annoying after awhile. Just say what you're going to say, and don't make the sentence 3x longer with your cussing. But if it is warranted... well, okay. I don't care.
You mean if it's directed at you or not?
Where's the option for where I'm not offending by it, but I am not going to go around swearing constantly.
It also depend on what you define a swear word.
Some people I know think the words "bloody stupid" are right up there.
Same with using God, Jesus or Mary as a normal word...
I do get annoyed by the tweens whose every second word is a swear word.
but occassionally interspersed in normal conversation for emphasis is good.
It really annoys me, especially when there's no reason for it. For some people it seems to be every other word, it must mean they have a very small vocabulary.
it annoys me in certain situations (ie: there are little kids around and people are oblivious to what is coming out of their mouths)-- i have found as more kids are around in social situations with friends,we have come up with some clever substitutes
It doesn't annoy me if it is used in moderation but it does annoy me when little kids (ie kids under 14) use it like they are the ****.
It actually annoys me when people don't, in this case.
Scenario: Something strange, amazing, or weird happens. This kid: "What the..!" He just says that! GAWD!!! At least say "heck" or something!!!
This, by the eway, is in a school where the coach says "don't b*tch to me" and "c'mon a$$holes, let me in". Not derogatory or anything, that's just the way things are here, so don't be like "Oh, well he's too young to swear anyway blah blah blah..."
EDIT: We're 14 or 15, FYI.
I don't mind as long as people don't go on and on about it. Then they're just wasting my time and theirs.
No, in fact, I am annoyed by people who are offended by swearing. I mean, certain words are justifed somewhat, but if you really can't handle the "s" word, lighten up.
The thing I love about swear word is how perfect they are to use in certain situations. For example, you stub your toe. What do you yell out? You can figure that out yourself.
I'm having a hard time voting. Swear words don't bother me but I don't swear in public because I don't want to offend anyone. Constant swearing can get annoying but only because of the repetition.
Words shouldn't offend people, meanings should/could.
Assumption #1: I have six children
Assumption #2: Those who use foul language in front of children are insensitive and uncaring.
Assumption #3: There are too many people on the planet as it is.
Assumption #4: If you use foul language in front of my kids, I will wish an early death upon you.
I draw a line in the sand between mild, moderate and abusive swearing:
Mild is the stuff you wouldn't say in front a child - however I myself (not in the presence of children of course) use such words.
Moderate: The aforementioned s-word. I use this occasionally. It doesn't bother me to hear at all.
Abusive: The f-word and other, similarly-regarded words I consider to be useless and never at all necessary and don't use them in my speech or care to hear them. If you use stuff like this, it just shows your diminished IQ, blatant lack of etiquette and no regard for the feelings of others.
