Hi

Nope, not being old fashioned at all.

It is just ill mannered and uncouth of them.

Re: Am I being old fashioned?

Pauline, when you say Ďstudentsí do you mean school kids or university students?

I have heard school kids on the bus swearing like that but not the students on the university bus that l occasionally catch.
The university students are quieter but thatís because they are too engrossed looking at their mobile phone screen!

I must be sexist as l can take boys swearing but l wince when itís a girl swearing.

No you're not being old fashioned Pauline, I hate it hearing youngsters swearing, then again I blame the Parents for not bringing them up right.

I also get fed up with Movies, I record a Movie, but as soon as you put it on, it the F..... word all throughout the film, as if its the only word they know, and I end up switching off.

I dislike the use of swear words, especially the 'F' word.

Re: Am I being old fashioned?

I don't like the "f" or "c" words but it seems to be the norm these days to use them.
I thought I liked Sarah Millican Lee Evans and a couple of other comedians until I saw their "uncut" shows on telly, it put me right off them. I suppose if it's allowed on telly people think it's ok.

To me,it's such an offensive word,..I thought it was against the law to swear on public transport,obviously I am wrong.

Thats exactly what I thought Tessa,people just seem to accept it as the norm.

Thanks for that, Pauline.

I donít know then? Maybe, they are a bit more mature when they get to university?

I donít like hearing people swearing but it seems to be the norm these days.
