Profanity in public: Do you find it rude or overlook the use?

Posted by   + Show Post

Out for dinner, movie, grocery.........wherever you may here the bad words, does it offend you? Do you correct the person or ignore what they said? Do you cuss in public or refrane the use of it?

Just curious.

i speak up and give "the look" to the person (if it's an older adult).  don't believe in swearing in public or around children (of any age!).

I think it's rude, but I usually let it go. I'm not the language police. Now if I'm at a child centered event or its directed towards my children? All bets are off.

I find it rude and offensive, especially around my kids.  I do not use it.

I ignore it. I am not everyones parents. My kids know its naughty and to not repeat it. They learn by my and my husbands examples, not the general piblics.

I think it is rude.

My husband is guilty of this, we have had words many times because he is loud and swears at inappropriate times and he makes me furious.

I think that those who chose to use loud profanities in public are uneducated and have no class.

I just ignore what others are saying. I've probably heard it all.  Nothing bothers me words wise these days.

It doesn't offend me but I find it inappropriate and find people who use it regularly ignorant.
