Normally I don't have a problem with vulgar language. Sparing my parents of my foul mouth has really been my only concern. Growing up in a Christian school I was of course surrounded by those whispered, almost as if they were sacred, "bad words". I never thought much about it, seeing that the only place unsuitable for swearing was my home and the church. As far as work goes, you should hear the mouth on my boss! Worst I've ever heard. I've always considered swearing as just a whatever subject, but as I grow older I'm finding it more of a shock.
I was sitting in the orthodontist's office today - that dreaded retainer check-up, going in there knowing you haven't worn it since the last check-up, positive that it won't fit. The boy beside me was probably 14 or 15 and he made a joke about his dog, but it involved swearing. Personally, I didn't find the joke all that funny, but the fact that he swore shocked everyone and left the room silent. Swearing is rude, end of story.
During job interviews? Absolutely uncalled for at all times. But I especially don't get the swearing in video games. I'm not a gamer myself, but I've sat in on my share of video games only to walk around the streets like a thug calling people derogatory names. It's a video game! Why do I need to swear at the other fake people walking around? Seriously!
I think that swearing has gone too far. I know it's not a subject that is going to tear our country apart, but we are all working hard on going green and cleaning up our world. How can this world be clean when the people in it are so filthy? Clean up your mouths, people. Please, be professional.
