Lori didnt grow up in NY

Those words exist for a reason Lori - If what you say is true our vocabulary would have less words and be more limited. Everyone can express however they want, there are different ways to communicate. Thanks anyway

Dear Lori, I love listening to your words of wisdom,you are so right ,we must think before we talk ,we can really hurt ourselves and our loved ones by using bad language.Kol hakavod to you,continue your great work. B'Shalom, Simonne

hello and I hope you are having an great day your talk reminded me of an experience I had many years ago.Someone I had worked with got transfer to another part of the department.About an month later he related to me about how he was telling about some quality problems they were having and the woman said that she didn't like his choice of words that he was using. He told her that he said it nicely. Then he said Willy I don't get it.So I explained it to him. When he pointed out that it didn't seem to bother me, I explain that I'm use to it because I have been around it my whole life but I would preferred that people would use better words. In talking with him I realized that cursing has become common language. People don't realize that it is wrong. In the years that this has happened I have not forgotten this and have tried to point this out from time to time
