    Unfortunately like a sailor. I'm terrible, I'm trying to reign it in though, the toddler is starting to repeat some very unsavory phrases.

    I do at work (not obviously when with clients!) rarely at home or with family, it's probably because they all seem to swear in the office and it rubs off!

    Default Swearing

    I used to swear a lot.

    However since I started working in a low paid industry with, how should I put this, a lot of bogans, I've realised how it can look and sound. I'm a lot more self conscious about the image I project.
    I don't like to think I'm a bogan, though to be honest I probably am 😂

    But yeah, I still swear. But I can mainly control myself unless I've had a few.

    And I do cringe at the c word. It is very blunt and crass.

    I will allow dd1 to use crap and bloody (she hasn't as yet though) but will only allow the bigger swears- sh1t and ****- when it's warranted, like singing along to the weeknd's "star boy" lol

    ETA: apparently f.a.r.k is bleeped too!

    All. The. Time. Except around my mum and grandad- even though they both swear like drunken sailors too, I just never feel comfortable doing so in front of them.

    Yes. Too often. Once upon a time, I hardly ever swore. Then DH started swearing at home because the people he worked with swore a lot, and the people I worked with swore a lot. It just kind of started to happen. I have noticed it is more common when I am anxious. I am working on cutting it out. But I am not doing a very good job at it.
