Oh I won't lie, I do sometimes. My favorite phrase is "Ya got to be fucking kidding me".
I never will forget the day I said that in front of a coworker. He stood back with a look of shock on his face and says "I didn't know you even knew how to cuss, you are always so lady like".
I'm not much for cussing..public, private or otherwise..
Maybe if i stub my toe or something like that..
Extremely rare when I do. I see it as disrespect for those around me. Some people do it all the time thinking it shocks people. It doesn't. It just shows them you have no class.
(cussing around friends who do likewise in a private setting is not the same as cussing in public)
I'm careful not to do it in public, since it can be taken as offense. But I don't mind if other people do it around me, as long as the intention is not actually to offend.
By the way, I don't know if there was "cussing" (foul language) in Egyptian hieroglyphs, but, if you take "cursing" in the literal sense of "invoking harm on other people" (not simply foul language), there was a lot of "cursing" and "swearing" in ancient Egyptian. Since they were afraid of tomb raiders, there were often "curses" and traps in the tombs to scare robbers away.
People that cuss in public,are low life.
No, I do not swear in public or private. I do not use God name incorrectly.
