Really random question. :D

How often do you swear out loud?

Someone mentioned to me today that they’ve never heard me swear. Thinking about it I don’t think I ever do out loud but I do swear a little bit in my head. I’ll also use minor swear words when writing but rarely if ever use words that would trigger a censor.

I know people in real life who swear in every sentence so I’m guessing we will get a diverse selection of answers from both extremes and everything in the middle!!!

    @Teddybear12 that’s a funny thing to swear about!! At least she apologised!

    @SueHeath I know what you mean about it not suiting certain people, I think I would take that as a compliment if someone said that to me. ha ha I know what you mean about the driving. I have a relative who always swears at other drivers.

    I have that too!! I always thought it a weird thing to say because who suits swearing? I think it's maybe because I'm quiet a lot of the time and softly spoken so it sounds weird when I Swear. I'd love to say I didn't swear at all but that would be a lie, it was part of everyone's every day language where I grew up.

    I don't swear often to be honest, I wouldn't use it in talking to a stranger, it's mainly if I get really angry, that's not very often either

    I don't swear much usually when I'm angry 

    I don't like certain words and won't ever say them 

    I feel uncomfortable when people swear all the time and feel nervous if it's confrontational

    I spent 20 years in the Royal Navy on all-male ships (Wrens started going to sea when I was on my last frigate in the Navy), so have spent many hours around bad language.  If I`m in an all male crowd, and so long as there are no females are around (I never swear in front of women - unless "passion" is involved and it`s a mutual thing), I tend to swear with the best of them - primarily to emphasise something.
    However..... I live alone, so if something comes on the news that really frustrates me, or I hurt myself (accidentally, not intentionally) or I`m cooking something that doesn`t turn out as I wanted it to, I usually say something that ends in "sake".

    I don't use a lot of bad language, sm never swore until she had been running her shop and the customers drove her to bad language.

    In my head when I’m mad. Rare out in the open but usually in a joking way.
