    There was this big thing made out of using substitute words instead of real swearwords and apparently the substitute words are just as bad....well I accidentally dropped some literature on the floor and said rather loudly 'blockocks'....which was rather silly really but this elders wife came upto me with a disgusted look on her face and said 'you shouldnt even use substitute words they are just as bad'....so I asked what she would sooner I say...blockocks or BOLLOCKS...she wasnt impressed but neither was I at that point.

    Stuck up witch

    We were out in service and I was driving. The car group was a father/daughter and the other was young single brother . I did not know the people in my car group very well.

    We pull up to the house, on the street and I am looking at the front door as someone is standing there. Not watching what I was doing I hit the mailbox. And it leaned over.

    The father said, There is someone standing at the door and he looks mad.

    I said SHIT, not softly under my breath but blurted out LOUD. Total silence in the whole car.

    We propped the mailbox back up and went inside.

    I apologized a zillion times the rest of the am, and everyone was cool, but I mostly felt bad for saying it in front of the kid if she was not used to hearing that kind of language.

    Lordy, when I'm in the right mood, I cuss like a pirate. So sure, lots of times, in quiet conversations with friends at the hall, I'd drop an F-bomb or something similar. I don't think I was ever overheard by anyone else; at least, it was never mentioned to me.

    There used to be one brother I really liked, who used to lean close to my ear and whisper incredibly lewd, salacious stuff- and then go on talking, in a normal voice, about how uplifting the meeting had been. Problem was, I was too innocent at that time to fully comprehend what he was talking about much of the time- I was always squinting at him and saying "Huh? Why would you want to spank me?". Oh, the missed opportunities!

    The first pope was quite a potty mouth... so I hear. Mark 14:71

    As a teenager at a congregation volleyball game I bent my thumb back trying to get the ball and yelled "God Dammit". So not only did I swear but I was blasphemous too!! I thought it was funny and started laughing, the rest didn't. I was very liberating! hg

    how did we ever live through all that crap?



  • Nosferatu

    I don't think I ever cussed in the KH nor around any JWs, but I came close. My mother on the other hand....

    My mother just got her drivers license, and one sister would let my mother drive her car. I remember it clearly. My mother backed into another parked car, then took off. She made a wrong turn and blurted out "Oh shit!" Me and the sister's daughter (who's eyes bugged right out) just looked at each other and smirked.

    Probably a myth,

    A brother was giving a talk about yet another of God's gentile stone axe massacres, then got so carried away that


    Strange how on RTs to certain Christians JWs still say "We slaughterd them."
