I always assume the "real" swear word when I hear people use words like "gosh darn it" or "Oh, Fudge". I once told my very pious sister that after she let out an "Oh Fudge" (we know what you REALLY mean by that) and she quit saying it.Originally Posted by Rattus;3426869;
I also agree about the use of situational language. And the use of "my bad". I do not feel like "my bad" is a sincere apology. It's sort of like the faux apology: "I'm sorry if you were offended." You're only sorry if the person was offended. You aren't really sorry and it isn't really an apology. It puts it off on the other person for being offended and not the offendee for doing the offending.
