I don't trust a man who doesn't cuss. Similarly, I don't trust a man who won't stop cussing in mixed company.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

One more vote here for restraint. I don't believe in contrived politeness but I do believe in civil society.

I am not bashful about the occasional scatalogical reference or for, say, making this forum ... uncomfortable ... for some prudish, self-important troll. Nothing says "I don't give a shit what you think" like a cuss-storm to someone you just want to Go Away. At the same time, degenerating to every fourth word being "fuck" or "fucking" is not impressive either.

That said, I think the OP probably is pretty restrained given her background and she just has a sanctimonious boss who is uncomfortable with "normal" cursing in a situation such as cutting your finger. It probably would be a good idea to tamp it down around him so he doesn't find an excuse to fire you or even pass you up for a raise. Just a reality of life in some parts of 'Murica.

I read it as if he was encouraging her to swear. You see, this is why I get in trouble.

Would have, but I tend to not come up with one liners over night unlike some. Shy

I feel really uncomfortable and awkward when people curse. Freedom of speech is more important than my comfort, though.

Such people don't need to curse at all to make their points, any more than they need to slap you in the face to get your attention.
