I was in the shop the other day when I heard a little girl say to her mother in the queue behind me.
"Why the f*ck can't I have that Jay's got one!"
I was quite shocked and waiting to hear the mothers response which was
"Well he's f*ckin older than you isn't he!"
At which point I raised by eyebrows and realized why the child actually spoke the way she did, it was believe it or not the parents fault. Its strange now a days I'm not saying I was never a kid that swore when I was younger but if I was ever caught by my parents I would either get a smack in the mouth or my mouth literally washed out with soap by my teachers. Swearing has become such a common part of life in some areas that its just part of regular conversation. Its shocking but it only takes one generation to introduce it as part of everyday conversation and its gets passed on. I suppose swearing which used to be something used when someone was very annoyed or angry doesn't seem to have that same effect anymore.
