Do you swear often? Apparently it’s a problem in Middleborough, Mass. They now have an anti swearing law and it can cost you $20. It must be a problem too because the vote was 183-50 to approve the proposal.
It’s my guess it’s like playing your radio too loud or something like that. It’s not really a “law” law but an ordinance with a fine. I guess I’m okay with it but it makes me wonder what will come next.
I do think we should be more careful with our language. I try very hard not to swear when I’m out and about. I do it when it’s Paul and I alone when I get really worked up but I don’t swear that often. Just when I’m really REALLY upset when no other words seem to be suitable.
I do believe like this article states though that the vice president shouldn’t have used the F word near an open mike. I think that’s just dumb. You have one of the highest jobs in the United States and to make a gaffe like that is almost unacceptable.
What about you? Do you let curse words fly? Just sometimes or never? Does it bother you to hear them? Would it bother you if out in public you heard a bunch or kids with potty mouths?
