Today, I was home on leave and having breakfast with my parents and my younger brothers. I guess I got too used to the rougher language around the Army barracks where I'm stationed. At the breakfast table I asked my Mom to "pass me the f***ing butter". FML

It's obviously only a problem if swearing is taboo in his household. In mine, swearing is commonplace. For example if I asked my Mum to "pass the fucking butter" she would without a second thought. It's just the household


My family is mostly military so I got used to the language. It's not that big of a deal. As a parent you just have to make sure that the kid know they aren't supposed to say it. I'm a full supporter of the military and you guys deserve all respect.

My husbands navy, and we have 2 toddlers. Right back from deployment it was pretty bad, but he's used to "work language" and "home language" now. I don't mind it, but I sure as hell don't want my 2 yr old picking it up!!! Once they are old enough to understand I won't mind, but in the parroting stage...nope!

Op, hope your younger brother doesn't try to be exactly like you! If not, no big deal.

You lived in your parent's house for at least 18 years. You should be able to remember common courtesy. YDI.

Yeah, my parents don't know where they went wrong..... But at the same time, they're just words.....
