i get the opposite effect. I swear so often no one takes any notice no matter how vulgar the word that comes out of mymouth is, and I generally dont even think about it until i happen to say something in front of someone who doesn't know me so well and get that look haha. but my best friend came out with the f word the other day and my jaw dropped hahah she never swears so it sounds so odd hearing it come outta her mouth.
