I got stuck in a store this week behind a couple who basically said the F*** word every other word. Of all the words in the English language, this one is in the top five of my I-really-don’t-like-to-hear-or-see-it list. Such a vulgar word, and what’s even crazier they weren’t even angry. They were having a pass-the-time conversation in line. That awful word came out so often I wondered if they even realized what they were saying, or if it had become similar to the often overused “like.”
Like, you know, like, I couldn’t believe it, like, he came up and, like, his smile was like amazing… If you were to insert the F*** word instead that’s pretty much what was happening.
The cashier gave them pointed looks as did the people checking out in front of them, yet they still didn’t stop, as if they relished in the discomfort they were causing everyone else. I wasn’t the only one who gave a sigh of relief when they finally paid and left.
For those of you out there, who might have fallen into a similar habit of tossing the F*** word about, let me give you a heads up. That word doesn’t make you seem tougher, and it certainly doesn’t make you look smarter. More like a toddler with a vernacular of only ten words and thinks saying poop is funny. The F*** word is never necessary, I don’t care how angry you are, I repeat NEVER NECESSARY. With the thousands, and thousands of words out there, there is always a better way to express yourself. It’s time to raise the intelligence out there and stop degrading ourselves, and society as a whole with that word.
