>I swear sometimes the office I work in is like working at an elementary school. Maybe it has to do with the high ratio of women in the office, but there is this vibe that negates all cussing. It’s way too goody goody.

In my last office, I was the only woman. Cussing wasn’t taboo there like it was at 8 years old. Nor was it used in every other fucking sentence. It just popped up here and there as though it were a normal part of speech.

Personally, I love cussing. It’s cathartic. I feel so censored in the office that I have taken to flipping off the phone whenever I am talking to a particularly annoying caller. I’m sure that is shocking and appalling to someone.

Luckily, that doesn’t happen too often.

    >I think FUCK is fucking great! How many other words cover so much? It is one of the most flexible words in the English language, being used as a verb, noun, adjective, adverb, and interjection and intensifier. I use it as part of my every day venacular. Some purists would argue that this shows an inability on my part to use (or even to have) a more sophisticated vocabulary, but that just isn’t so…I have a huge vocabulary. I don’t think it makes one sound unintelligent, as some would imply. It is often ill-educated people who are the more loath to say it – for fear of appearing ill-educated. In my view, nothing is regrettable in linguistic usage. But even I must admit, there is a time and place for such things…not because they are wrong, but because those that may hear, may not fucking understand.

    >i love to cuss. i would rather say “shit” than “poop,” “fuck” than “have sex,” i don’t mind being called a bitch, the word “cunt” doesn’t bother me so much anymore, and even though “tits” isn’t really a bad word, i would rather say that than “boobs.”

    you’re one righteous bitch, SFChick.

    >Fuckin’ A, gigi! I haven’t heard anyone use righteous in a while. Reminds me of Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. Although I don’t think they used it.

    Chewy, you cuss like those old cartoons. It took me a while to figure out that the gibberish they were saying was a substitute for cussing.

    I enjoy using “shite” every now and then.
