How do you feel about swearing? (aka cussing)

Does it matter to you if other people do it? Does it only matter to you when your children are around? Do you not care at all?

I curse when I feel like it.

I do it every once in a while, mostly in response to a very stressful situation.   There are a couple of curse words I won't use, though.  I will not curse around children.  It does not really faze me when others curse.  I have a neighbor who drops f-bombs regularly, so that has probably desensitized me, as did high school.

 I try not to cuss- but things slip every now and then. We have asked a few people to respect our house and kids by watching their language.

They're words. Used carelessly, they can be hurtful, irritating, and overdone. Used thoughtfully, they can be quite powerful and drive a point home.

I have no problem with swearing when done with a purpose. If it's swearing just to swear because of the "rush" from it being bad or because the person doesn't feel like being intelligent, then it bothers me.

I don't care too much about cursing. We are originally from NYC. My kids have heard worse. They however do not curse. Their father and I do.
