Do you - as an adult - "cuss" in front of your parents? What about grandparents?

I was just reading the answers to another question and was surprised how many women said they didn't... What about you?

  • I only have one grandparent left and just one parent... Both of them could make a sailor blush when they are pissed! lol... Cussing was discouraged, but by the time we were teens it wasn't a big deal... Since I was about 12 or 13 "cussing" wasn't something I ever really didn't do in front of them - which is funny cause with as sheltered as they tried to keep us, you would think it would have been a bigger deal. But, yeah, sure, I cuss in front of both of them, I've never understood the big deal about it...

  • All grandparents have passed, but NO WAY do I swear in front of parents. I may be 36, but she's still crack me a good one upside the head if I cursed in front of my mom!!

  • I never had grandparents but I live with my mother right now (hard times) and I cuss in front of her all the time and she does in front of me. I was raised in a house where you speak your mind and say what you want. I will admit, I did not swear in front of my mother until I was 18 because by then I wasnt scared of her slapping me across the face lol but she cussed in front of me all the time. but we are not vulgar about it, we say it every now and then in a normal conversation and ALOT when we are pissed lol

  • I haven't had grandparents since I was 6. My mother taught me the most colorful language! Cussing is my stress relief! :)
