I figured in preparation of not cusing in front of the Amish we should have some acceptable alternatives. This will help avoid yelling something unacceptable when in the heat of the moment you have to yell something! My current alternatives are Pickles! Poop on a stick! (I'm not entirely sure this one is acceptable) Balls! Son of a Pixie Stick! Any other suggestions?

Disclaimer: My son is only 10 months old and has a limited vocabulary of HI! Hey! and farting noises. If you meet a young man several years from now who yells random things like poop on a stick. Don't blame him.. it's his mothers fault.

Chuck you Farley, you're not so muckin futch! But you have to be careful with that one, sometimes you'll mess up and say it right...usually in front of someone that will not find it nearly as amusing as I do.

One that I always use around my kids, and it's because my Grandpa always said it and it stuck, is Dog Dang It! I have no idea why he said it, or why I continue to use it, but that's probably the one I use most. There's also Shaving Cream, Son of a Biscuit, and Son of a Bee Sting. I'm sure there are more, I'll have to pay attention to what I use around my kids. Pretty much anything Will Ferrell might say as an expression of surprise would work.

I have a good friend who runs a daycare in addition to having 4 kids of her own. I caught her yelling pees and rice. This was before I had any kids. I thought she was nuts. Now I understand. lol

I personally think Pickles and Pixie Sticks are great. Some would say using variations of real "bad" words is the same as saying them. At least that is what a pastor told me years ago.

I don't swear unless very ANGRY. I use frig frack, shooska, son of a bucket head, bucket, crusty, crusty bum bum heads, you smell, go jump in a mudd pit, cabbage head.

That's all I can think of right now...poop on a stick is hillarious. And peas & rice too!

Someone told me to say "Bless your heart" whenever I'm really upset at someone. I tried it today when the escalade cut me off and almost caused a massive pileup. It just doesn't have the same satisfying feeling as flipping them off and yelling Jackbunny! I'm going to experiment with it some more. Maybe it only works when they can hear me and I don't look like a raving lunatic in my car.

You're got a point there. The Amish can't hear me if the windows are rolled up.

DFW - I am dying laughing here picturing you in your car screaming "BLESS YOUR HEART!!!" at some stupid car that cut you off... Smile

My FI's favorite non-cussing phrase is "Son of a biscuit!!"

"Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it. "

"Bless your heart" was always something all the older church ladies used to say to me when I was little...would make me feel 250 years old if I started saying that. lol

I favor saying "you unholy son of an unwed mother"! By the time they figure out what that really means I can be in my vehicle and leaving the scene at the speed of light... XD
