Swearing

My dad used to swear so much that the bad words just stick to his tongue so badly that he wouldn’t miss using a bad word in every sentence. Of cos the 4 of us won’t use or try not to swear in front of him…otherwise will kena hantam from him. When I was about 13 yrs old.. I don’t know what got into me one night. My bro asked me to do something and I replied.. "Diu". And he got so shocked, he asked me " what did u say?" I said…."DIUUUUUUUUUUU!". He got so shocked and said, " who taught you that?" And I slumber-ly said " of course from my father la.. Who else?"My bro looked at my dad and my dad looked at me. Total silence.

There’s another time that my dad scolded me "Niamafulat". I then turned and ask my mum.. " Ma…lei yau mou fu lat" (mom yr pants fall down edi ka?). My mum slumber-ly replied… "Moula..Chung Hai chiok chee" (nolah, it’s still attached). Hehehehe

Now he don’t really swear in front of us esp in front of his grand children. But we, the four of us do swear once in a while. For us, sometimes we swear when we’re damn pissed or just for the fun of it.

I remember when i used to drive my niece home from her babysitter’s place, I’ll always meet with jialat drivers (still with P licence ma). So sometimes I swore too fast and my niece will follow .. "STUPID ASSHOLE!" "SHIT" "OI KOPI-O Licence Ka!". But since now that I have my own child, I should control more. Like what Michael said, "It's getting harder to be a parent". We have to jaga what we do and say in front of them. Cos we’re the biggest influence to them….and why I’m so worried?

You say I should be worried or not?
