Have you ever said something to someone for swearing in front of your children?
Have you ever been out to dinner, a ball game, or a birthday party and someone is non stop swearing and you say something?
Most Definitely. I will not tolerate a vulgar mouth around my family. No one should use unpleasant language in public. It is in bad taste. I use to also be a deputy sheriff. God Bless.
I don't have any children, but I do think that it's highly rude to swear in front of young children.
Sort of. Years ago when they were young, we are in a video store and one young man clerk, working with a bunch of young women was telling a really vulgar, filthy joke--the girls were clearly annoyed with him and I said something about it pointing to my young girls. I also asked to see the manager--who wasn't in.
At the time, I was not very good at confrontation, and ended up with a migraine from being so upset. My 6'4" husband went back and had a little chat with the boy.
I have since learned to sort of embrace confrontation when necessary!
Yup. I just asked, pleasantly, "Hey guys, do you mind not swearing in front of my young son, please?" The teenagers were perfectly pleasant, and said, "Oh, sorry about that." And they kept it clean for the rest of the fireworks display. All in all, it was a good night.
yes i have. we were at a theme park and some guy in front of us kept swearing so i told him to watch his mouth. he laughed at me and said to f-off. i gently pulled him out of line and squeezed his shoulder until tears came to his eyes and said" if i have to ask you again it will be your balls i'm squeezing". the way i did it my kids didn't even know there was a comfrontation but he didn't swear around us anymore.
I am the same way. I haven't had many incadents with people swearing around my children but I go to a bar n grill type place every Tuesday and shoot pool with friends. A lot of families are there early and eat and wait for the karaoke, there was a family with 2 small children and they were eating near the pool table and there was a drunk woman splashing her drink everywhere and saying very vulgar things to get attention by the pool tables. The parents looked disgusted buy didnt say anything so I did. At first I asked her if she could watch her mouth because their were children in the room and she flipped me the bird, the second time she got out of control I walked over to her and told her that I knew she obviously had no self respect and everyone in the bar could see that by the way she's sitting with her legs open and going on an on about her sex she then got mad and stood up and I got upset with her getting in my face with her disgusting breath and I quietly told her that the children in the room were to young to know about whores and STD's so if she could please go back to the corner she came from it would be greatly appriciated. She stormed off and went to the bar and didn't come back to the pool room that night.
What I did might have been over the top but I don't put up with drunks and I can't stand hearing people swear around children for the simple fact that it's rude and their parents probably don't want them picking up such language.
yes i have and would every time i will not allow any of that in front of my kids or my partner
Yes. It is not only rude, but also not necessary. I kind of feel sorry for the ones using these words. It shows their lack of education. An intelligent person could easily think of a much more descriptive word to replace the expletive.
Definitely have, and unfortunately I found that most people don't like being told how they should talk regardless of how many minors are around. One led to a fight (and police being called) in a McDonalds play place. Another almost led to a fight on a bus.
I think that through my experiences, I've learned that you need to pick your battles, and maybe just move away from the people rather than start an argument.
Yes, to personal friends, to strangers and even to my own hubby. Usually a mild, " there are children present" does the trick. Sometimes, I have had to be a bit more forthcoming, " Tina, you CAN'T talk like that in my home in front of my children"........"Hey, Take that trash talk elsewhere!", or a reminder to my own........." we have a family of little girls here".
Most people, at most times are willing to respect your limitiations when you define them.
Yes, I have told relatives to please not use swear words and they get annoyed and frankly don't understand why.....it is very frustrating.
Definitely, anytime that children or adults are swearing in an inappropriate public place that I have children at I politely ask them to refrain. This normally works OK with adults but I have encountered some ugly situations with teens to include having to physically restrain them. New world we live in I guess.
In restaurants where a nearby table has a swearing group, I have spoken up and reminded them that we have children with us and asked them to watch the language. I don't make a big deal out of it if it isn't a long-lasting situation. It's mportant to remind people to be polite but another to unrealistically shelter your children from what has unfortunately become too commonplace today. We teach her at home that "just because someone else does it, doesn't make it right."
Yes all the time! Don't ever be intimidated by anyone especially when it comes to your children.
Swearing wasnt such a big issue when I was raising my children, however today it seems to be almost acceptable. I dont like it when my partner and I are enjoying a meal in a restaurant and someone at the next table is swearing loudly. And its not even that I dont swear myself, because I do. However, there are times when appropriate language should be used, and in public is one of them. It is not right to assume that everyone is okay with foul language.
I have no problem speaking my mind, if you're going to be rude and I can hear you,be prepared for a rebutal. lol

Is it ok to use "vulgar" slang in a hub about Australian slang and strine?I am writing a series of hubs about Australian slang, strine and colloquialisms. Many of the regularly used words/terms could be seen as vulgar by many. I would like the opinion of others in regard to whether...

Will President Donald Trump lower the bar for "once vulgar" offensive language?Consider him repeating a supporters reference to another candidate as a female body part. Will it be appropriate to make fun of and belittle people? Will he do a 180 after election?
