I wish I had this kid's excuse for my potty mouth. Every time an expletive flew from my pie hole, I could just say, "I'm so sorry if I offended you. I am simply unable to pronounce words properly." (I'm sure that would work like a charm.)
My babe is at the stage where she repeats EVERYTHING I say. It's fun most of the time, but can be a tad harrowing when someone drops a four–letter word in front of her.
Somehow my motherly instincts have severely curbed my cursing, but every now and again, I let one slip.
Just the other night she caught me by surprise as she dropped the "F" bomb. Shocked and appalled, I didn't know what to do. At 17–months–old, what good does scolding her for bad language do? And besides that, it wasn't her fault that she learned it and was simply repeating it. It was just like any other word.

I like a man who's not afraid to use the occasional expletive (at appropriate times, of course), but I think it's a major turn off if he's constantly dropping the F-bomb.
I once met a guy at a bar that I found attractive, but when we went on our first date, he was cursing left and right. I think he thought it was cool or proved his manliness, but truthfully it made him seem unintelligent and left me feeling totally uncomfortable. I mean, come on, there are many more ways to describe a movie then to constantly say "That was f***ng awesome."
I've asked you about swearing at work, but now I want to know what you think about guys you date that curse. Do they seem more attractive to you? Less attractive to you? Does a cursing guy even bother you at all or are you indifferent?
