Strangely, it seems to help. However, I see this as different to open abuse of another by swearing.
I tend to be like that and rarely use swearing directly at another person, though when I do it is usually because it is necessary to make a forceful point fairly rapidly, and "oh my goodness me" type stuff doesn't do that for me, there is a time and a place where a short barrage of verbal invective is quite effective.

In the garage, surrounded by inanimate objects trying their damndest to decapitate me with every swing of a spanner, you'd be forgiven for thinking the end of the world was nigh if you had an ear to the keyhole and didn't know me

As it happens I almost never swear directly at people-you don't last long in my job if you swear at people when the company phone number and name is all over the truck.I prefer to look and smile while they give me abuse then suggest they apologise or I'll call the police and have them removed for obstruction or breathalysed. NOT swearing is far more effective.

I didn't swear directly AT him either-read the original post properly.If he could hear me from where he was I'd be amazed. His wife hearing was incidental too-I was unaware that he was recovering that particular boat and for all I knew he could have been recovering another one that was queueing on the pontoon.I was quite amused that his wife would own up to knowing him in public though considering the complete clown he was being.


Timw, you're still boring me. The analogy of a cheap tawdry windup tin soldier beating his little drum was I feel, quite accurate. Maybe if we wind you up some more your spring will break?

I'm not in the slightest concerned if I bore you.

You wonder if "...if we wind you up some more your spring might break".

I very much doubt in your case that the "royal we" would be applicable, so I wonder which group of people you refer to that are in fact winding me up?

To reassure you, I'm not wound up at all, but given your reaction to my posts perhaps you don't take criticism too well.

If I see a post of yours describing something you did such as shouting an expletive (and you stated that clearly in your post) in front of families, then I shall post a critical comment.

If that bores you, so be it. But I hope it will make you think twice before doing it again.

Yes, you're good at that aren't you. It would make a pleasant change to hear something that didn't sound like a thinly disguised whine from your direction.

I'm currently running a book with one of my alter-egos.

Next post from Timw-
3:2 it says 'Ribnet Court' somewhere
2:1 it says 'yob' somewhere, fails to actually read what's said properly,gets on it's soapbox and goes off at a tangent to the rest of the thread.
1:50 that there's actually something useful to someone else in there.
