Sugar Honey Ice Tea!

62 percent of 18-to-34-year-olds said that they swear in conversation at least several times a week. 75% percent of the population swears in public. I didn't know this was news, but apparently it is. It's also a reason for a badly written rant about how profanity shouldn't be used.
Read with caution.

And according to Yehuda Baruch, a professor of management at the University of East Anglia, and graduate Stuart Jenkins, profanity in the office is a good thing. As long as you don't do it in front of the boss.

But don't swear at your toilet, or might get arrested like Dawn Herb of Scranton, PA.

I heard about the toilet lady at work from my boss. It is crazy!

There's no way she's going to get convicted of that - people can swear in their own houses. The policeman swore at her from his house.

Admittedly I swear like a truck driver from time to time. Usually not in inappropriate settings, but when talking to Mik or chatting or out with friends. I need to curb the habit really. Because if people are getting arrested for swearing i'm f***ed. No offence Melody or Emily.

No offence taken.

I swear most when I'm driving - at other drivers, at the traffic lights, pedestrians, mother's who let their children play in the street.

Also at McDonalds. Today they sold me something they didn't actually have and then forgot to give me my burger and there was no straw for my drink. I need to start packing a lunch.

Beautifully Profound said...

That you do! It's much cheaper dear.

Melody said...

I know it's cheaper, healthier too. I used to always pack a lunch - I just got out of the habit.
