I curse all the time, maybe even too much. I can cut it out at a moment's notice in case it's not appropriate, though.

I look sweet but believe me, I've got a mouth like a sailor. My parents/family don't know, but you better believe my friends and boyfriend have heard it plenty of times.

I love telling people where the term "vulgar" comes from and how you can directly link curse words to class warfare as a result. I'm surprised, actually, that it wasn't something Carlin himself didn't harp on during the many decades he railed against the stupidity of the curse word.
Seriously, I was taught so many times to believe the "sticks and stones can break my bones but words can never hurt me" mantra, and yet, we have curse words? Counter intuitive at best.

I'm not awful, but I can be really bad, especially when I'm with friends. Certain things really bring it out to, namely traffic, the dog (sometimes), and our local teams. I really should invest in a swear jar.

When I was teaching, one of the kids flunked a quiz and let loose the F bomb. I told him and the class that using that word in the context of a 10-point quiz was like using a sledge hammer to kill flies. Flunking a reading-check quiz called more for "Oh, my goodness" or "Well, rats." The F bomb was entirely appropriate for the flunking the final exam so thoroughly that he couldn't graduate.
Appropriateness and respect for context are key.
(On the other hand, alone in my car, I will unleash my entire repertoire of swear words, and if I'm really steamed I go back and hyphenate them.)

I usually don't curse just for the shake of doing it. I usually have to be pretty mad to curse like when Reynolds strikes out or Kevin Gregg loads the bases. I must have a pretty big potty mouth then since those two things happens quite often.

When I first started cooking for a living, anytime I'd cut or burn myself, I'd say G**dammit. One of the first times I cooked my family dinner at home after I got kinda good, I got some hot oil on my hand and let one fly. My mom is a very sweet church going lady, and though I could tell she was offended, I was ill-prepared for what happened next. She looks at me and says "Gosh, Bobby. I'd rather you said c*******er or f*** than take the Lord's name in vain." I'd never heard her curse before that, and neither had my dad, and we just fell apart laughing. These days I save it for traffic, bad golf shots, and Kevin Gregg.
