Do you cuss? If so, where? Are you allowed to cuss at home? work? school? I grew up not cussing at home, so now when I go into other peoples homes, I refrain from cussing unless they cuss. Also I will not cuss around children.

I have a few friends who are parents now, and they cuss around their kids and are surprised when their 3 year old cusses.

I haven't made a habit of cussing. Normally, I don't cuss for the sake of cussing and/or out of anger, but rather using it to express myself and/or to use it for context or humour. This is true for English, but I swear much more often in some other languages just because they sound funnier.

Don't cuss in front of ur kids or they'll say it at school, cuss less at home so ur kids will accidentally hear u cuss less, blah blah blah, very basic common sense. They're just not very smart, that's all. And, in often cases, there r ppl who need to cut down on cussing like one would cut down on smoking, especially those that cuss in every sentence.. I wouldn't want to hold a conversation w/ them.

I don't think my parents have ever even heard me say a curse word, besides maybe once when I mentioned the Jackass movies. They almost never cursed while I was growing up and learning wrong and right in our family, but in the past few years my dad cusses more often (saying badass, s*it, dammit, minor stuff like that every once in a while).

But, in around 5th grade I began cussing a TON around my friends, and in high school I would cuss a lot even with teachers around and stuff.

I refrain from cussing around other adults or families or certain people until I know they're comfortable with it. And I know not to cuss around customers at work. It's interesting--some friends I have never seem to cuss (mostly girls) and then they'll cuss one time and I'll think "oh they're okay with it, cool".
EDIT: I've noticed growing up that my brother wasn't one to cuss even around our friends or at school, and now he seems even more opposed to it, which I personally think is due to his active participation in some church band.

But yeah overall I cuss a lot when I have the opportunity.

I do cuss but not at the level of cussing every time whenever I speak a sentence.

Not at all. I meant it's offensive. Do you want to be offended? But yeah if I'm alone I tend to slip my tongue from time to time.
