Cursing: Not Welcome Here
This is not a Complex
issue. In fact, millions of normal, hard-working folks curse. Bus drivers, cops, short order cooks and even the pretty waitress curses when her tip is not given. Think about it in an honest fashion. When was the last time you really cursed? Can't remember? That's cool. No one really thinks to take an accurate count of times we have cursed.
But now we face a definition of junctures: common cursing (or "cussin'" to some folks) is a way for people who dabble in the Art of Black Magic and then say a phrase or two if the dabbler has been offended and look out! Terrible things are about to happen to this person who caused the dabbler to be offended. Have you ever read about this stuff?
(In Above Photo) is the
perfect example of someone who is, or has lost their temper and when this happens, (many times) this man's mouth moves and out comes many vulgar, degradable, and harsh words and phrases aimed at the source or person who has made this man say such anti-social things.
I am not going to make one of my famous lists of vulgar words and phrases, because I value my sweet followers and I also give them all a lot of credit for their high I.Q.'s in not having to have a list such as mine. Note: any reasonable person knows the difference between vulgar and nice words and phrases.
Just stop a moment if you ever see such an individual such as the man in the photo above and you really don't have to understand every vulgar word he is spewing out, just know by the faces in the huge crowd now gathering that this guy is cursing and cursing to "beat the band."
Time to ask you the Special Question:
"Is there ever really an acceptable time for anyone to curse?"
I used this bold type to emphasize how serious that I am about people cursing in places that are not welcome. In yesteryear many people cursed as if they were drinking a glass of water. Even some priests cursed "if" the words used were not causing others to be condemned or sent to eternal damnation by Almighty God, but since we are all born with a free will and can make rational chances, why would anyone of us have such a burning need to curse someone or some thing?
Know what I am driving at? I hope so. I would hate to know that I wrote this much about cursing and not make a legitimate point and if you know me well, and some of you do know me well, you know that I do love making legitimate points as much as I do love eating bacon and eggs for breakfast.
So I guess it's "that" time. Not the best of times, I will give you that. But "the" time to ask, Is There Really any Place That is Acceptable for Cursing?

Ready to Make Notes?
- Restaurants: never an acceptable place to let your temper get the best of you--no matter if the waitress intentionally spilled your coffee on your freshly-pressed suit because you made a clean, but yet a snide remark toward how she talked.
- Gyms: where places play sports such as basketball and volleyball. But when these athletes or maybe people who love to work out at various times seem to curse when a team loses or a barbell accidentally falls. These are moments when people are not to go into a fiery tirade and fill the air with profanities.
- Medical clinics: are no place to curse for any reason. I can understand if a person has had a terrible accident and the driver curses because he is in shock, but if a person is going with a person for an emergency check-up and the E.R. nurse is a bit slow, this is definitely no place for cursing.
- Schools: especially where the office of principals are located. I can now understand why parents are not getting anywhere from the principal who banned their son for yelling profanities for laughs and the principal did not give in to allow your son to go back to school, sure the parents are angry and now humiliated. But cursing will only get this pair of parents told to leave and if they do not comply, the police will arrest them and probably sue them.
- Bus stops: are not ideal places for you to curse at the people who are waiting to catch a bus to go across town. Hey, even if you go board the bus and get upset for someone throwing a rotten pineapple at you and curse, the bus driver has the authority to stop the bus and tell you to get off. This is a fact.
- Police stations: are like the "Mother of Non-Cursing Locations." Even if you are trying to file a complaint against your nosy neighbor and catches them taking his photo in the nude, you are not allowed to use profane language. These guys and gals in blue do not handle cursing well. They have enough stress without you having to throw on extra cursing when there is no reason.
- Churches: now really. I am not going to dignify this non-cursing location. I mean it. Okay. if the parishioner or child is afflicted with a mental issue where they burst out at anytime for saying ugly words, I would suggest that the priest have a more private location inside the church building just so his members will not be offended out of not understanding the mental issue.
- Grocery stores: oh yeah. Please try to abstain from cursing while shopping for groceries. I will bring this point home by telling you by this example: a weary single parent, a woman who is working two jobs to support herself and a teenage son and she has to shop for food, but uh, oh! A forward-talking guy stalks her and talks in suggestive terms about how good she looks. Then out of anger, this woman curses him out and for good. The man ogling her leaves. But the store manager tells her to pay for her groceries, but do not frequent his store again.
- Airlines: I should not have to explain why a flyer is not condoned for cursing a flight attendant, pilot, co-pilot or any airline employee or passenger. I think that you have seen enough reports on television about flights landing en route and the offending passenger being put off of the plane.
- Offices of the Salvation Army: should never use ugly words from people who are asking for help or just wanting to file a complaint about this all-charity organization. We are supposed to be civil-minded people. Why not act like it?
I hope that you have enjoyed this non-profanity-using hub. I am serious.
Good night to all in Wichita, Kansas.
