What the What?!

Anger and frustration are two common reasons people cuss, so it kind of follows that because of our poor economy, people are cussing more nowadays. Depending on who you ask, this might not be a terrible trend. This msnbc article says cussing can be cathartic in times like these. Something along the lines of using your words, not your actions, to vent your anger.

Do you cuss? Have you noticed yourself swearing more often lately (like at the price of gas or your 401(k) statement)? And on a related note, do you call using bad words cussing, swearing or cursing?

yes. i swear. a lot. always have. probably am doing it more nowadays due to the stress of eventually losing my job (next month).

i tend to WAY overuse the 'f-bomb'...all the time.

but i do often feel better after going on a swearing rant.

I use to talk like a drunk trucker but I've WAY toned it down as I don't want a toddler that tells people to get f*%ked.

BUT when I opened our retirement statement and saw that we lost $40,000 I SCREAMED MOTHERFU&#ER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love me some f bomb. Always have. Always will. Use it way too often. The kids are going to start using it soon. That'll be bad.
