swear words that aren't swear words

My hubby is having a hard time quiting swearing. He is a corrections officer that works with some potty mouths to put it nicely and it is wearing off on him. I was wondering what are some phrases that you have heard or use in place of swear words that I can give him as a suggestion? That way he won't be teaching our children some of the inmates potty mouths, or he can use on the inmates to take them off gaurd.

  • I hired a new assistant a few months ago and she's a born again christian. I had a (bad) habit of saying "jesus christ" alot. Knowing this would "bother" her, I adapted it and have been saying "cheese and rice" instead. It draws a few stares from my friends at happy hour on a Friday, but I'd rather have that than offend my awesome assistant!
