5th grade for me. I was allowed to say piss & Hell
Pretty early. One of the benefits of growing up in a working class neighborhood.
aboot the same here...(other than around my mom who still forbids it in her presence.)
My grandma allowed most things other than fuck and cunt, but they had to be in context and not repetitive.
zactly, Dad worked on an offshore drilling platform in Prudhoe Bay and Gramps has a masonry business (I started working as a hod carrier at about 8)
Our family were all electricians. My dumb ass had to be different and be a carpenter.
such a departure...
I wish I'd have stuck with it sometimes but it's hard and dirty work.
I swore out loud from about 12/13 but my dad always complained, my mom didn't mind too much. he stopped complaining when he cheated on my mom. he just wrinkles his brow now, although he doesn't say a complete sentence without swearing himself.
my granddad never allowed it, but my nana had a much higher tolerance and got a chuckle when the rest of us pushed his envelope.
my other grandparents were in the countryside so even cunt (not allowed anywhere else) was just part of every day language there. "ah ya cuntchya, I couldn't stop laughing"
I dont have the natural gift for math that everyone else in my family has. Not talking about pulling wire. Everyone my generation are electrical engineers.
I'd be happy with any of these.
Around 21 after dad died, mom doesn't tell me to stop now
Bro's kid said "smd" to him last night.
Although the only swearing i say is probably 'Shit' when i stuff up something....not big on swearing
and look where that got him :headlock:
Around 15/16. Seems like when I started to drive they became a lot more tolerant to those types of things. Cussing, smoking, drinking. I think once they figured out that I saw how dumb it was for them to tell me not to smoke while they had a cig hanging out of their mouth, they stopped giving a shit.
I only regret that I didn't go for an engineering degree. My cousins are way more successful than I can ever hope to be. Wish someone would have sat me down and said you will never get rich working for another person.
My mom's probably still not thrilled when i let loose with the big ones, i.e. fuck, cunt.
i never swore until i joined the military.
when in my 40s, i was visiting my mum. a cousin i hadn't talked to in years called. he said "how the fuck are you", i said i'm great. how the fuck are you.
my mum slowly turned and gave me a look like i hadn't seen since HS.
i immediately said "he started it!" .
