One of my flaws is that I cuss way too much. And I can do it in three languages. You know it’s pretty bad when a former sailor asks you to cut it out.
I don’t know why I do it. Sometimes saying “Don’t fuck it up” has a stronger impact than “Don’t mess things up”. Sometimes you just need that extra emphasis. But when you say it all the time, it kind of loses it’s punch anyway.
I try not to do it as much online. But in person, yeah, I use it way too often. When I was younger, I never cussed. I made the mistake of saying something to my mother when I was a teenager, and my dad smacked me on the leg. He hit me so hard, I had a hand print on my leg for days. (It was not part of a pattern. That was the only time I ever remember getting smacked/spanked at all)
But, working in restaurants made it easier to learn, and use such words. Being online hasn’t helped either. You get immune to the shock value of certain things when you’re exposed to them alot.
Sometimes, you just need say fuck it, and do what you want to anyway.
