What the...?

I simply cannot get used to swearing over here. Yeah, you read that correctly.

Polite, proper little old ladies use ‘damn’ and ‘hell’ in their conversations (albeit not regularly). My students don’t hesitate at all to look at something and say, ‘what the hell is that?’ The s-word (and worse) is used all the time over here.

But let me say the word ‘crap’ and even the kids look at me and say, ‘Awww…Sir’s swearing.’ And they mean it.
