Topic: Swearing


Being back on active duty has exposed me to quite a bit of swearing. It amazes me how much soldiers run their mouths. Some of the females here have worse mouths than the guys.

My question is

how much do you swear?

I do my best to not do it, but from time to time it just comes out.

Not as much as my Sergeants, but still quite a bit.

Since having kids, I've cleaned up a lot. Talk about echo chambers!

I do it every now and then. I can clean it up and not say a single cuss word, but I also like to let loose and let 'em fly. I guess it all depends on what mood you catch me in. However, I always make a concerted effort to never cuss in front of children. They are like little tape recorders when someone says a cuss word. It is forever stored in their memory. LOL!

In the army, you'll need to curse and swear a lot.. I did that too. It's a culture. Else you'll be seen as soft.

Out in the civilian world, I'm supposed to be good and a SAINT.
So I don't swear.

I only 'swear' to girls that 'I love you!'.

I've learned that if you swear and yell ONLY when things are serious, soldiers notice. I blew up on a soldier once. Later a few of my friends said they never thought I could be like that and it was intimidating

Saint...how did I know it would be you who picks that "I am a saint" vote
