why do people need to cuss all the time? adult content

ill admit i do have a lil bit of a potty mouth but only at home, NEVER in public. i started school today and had lunch with a couple class mates and this woman at the next table cussed so much, every other word was f*ck and she talked loud. i think its one thing to talk like that in private, but to go out in public and talk that way is distasteful and very unprofessional. you think someone would want to act better than that at a college but guess not. unfortunately i have her in one of my classes...ugghh

  • Because we BEEPING want to. Got a BEEPING problem with that?

    I have no idea. I guess swearing makes them feel good

  • Maybe they aren't ridiculous enough to believe words have any more power than what we give them.

  • Its because some ppl have a major lack of better words. And to act like that out in the open is def not classy. I def curse but not in public and if I do its a slip

  • It's a really hard habit to break. I catch myself doing it more frequently than I like- especially when nervous but it's always under my breath or broken up with a "grrrr!!!" like "mother f-GRRR!!" But I also get really offended and put off by people that swear loudly around people they don't know or in public.

  • because they have no class....do not know other words to use instead and maybe even lack the education needed to carry on a civil conversation

    well its a good thing she is taking public speaking then huh?
    the woman appears to be in her mid 30's i would hope that she would know how to act in public. common sense should tell someone thats not appropriate

  • I couldn't tell you. I think they are trying to be emphatic, but I tend to listen more and agree more without all the expletives. I think you make a better point without all the profanity. It gives and argument validity.

    really? you wouldnt find that a little unsettling? what if you walked in to lets say an attorney's office and the receptionist was cussing up a storm....you wouldnt find that unprofessional? while yes it was just a college cafeteria, i feel that if people are going to college to be a professional, one should act like one in public. we have people in and out of the college at all times, whose to say that a potential employer wouldnt walk in at some point and hear that.

  • There is a time and place for cussing. When I'm at work I keep it proffessional and do not curse. When I'm off...anything goes, lol. I'm educated but I'm myself. If you think I'm stupid or uneducated because I curse then you can pretty much fuck off.
