Because I'm a terrible potty mouth when I drive and sometimes when I'm working with the teens. I have to clean up my act. I'm getting better every time, but I'm not there yet.

I can relate. DH keeps trying to teach the world to drive with very blue words and gestures from inside the car. I, on the other hand, am a perfect example of an upstanding citizen. #%^*=!& right!

This was one of the best lessons I ever learned. When someone provokes me, I just walk away. It leaves them with their own "wrongness" and p*sses them off. You feel better, and they are left with their own negative feelings. Sometimes they even learn from it.

I think my signature says it for me. I have never been a real potty mouth. My daughter shames me even when we are alone. And so does Son #2. The youngest one occasionally when he is with friends and they swear. But he is making a very strong effort to get it under control. He can't do it at work. The patients would not appreciate it. And his 2 y.o. repeated a word he heard his friend say. So of course the RULE went into effect immediately. No more swearing in his home. Or at anytime in the presence of his son. He asked one friend to leave his home because he couldn't get his tongue under control.

When you get provoked, put out a big smile. The other person will wonder what you are up to. They will think you know something they don't. It's impossible to argue with someone who is perceived of being nice to them. They will walk away madder, and you will walk away calm. You win!

And I forgot Son #1. He worked for years with kids in the Little League. So he has never sworn. Never developed he habit.
