About that smile...

In the vein of man bites dog,
Man fined for swearing.

Another day, another pointless argument. People could learn a thing or two from Mean Girls and stop with the softcore public insults, and start treating each other with a litte respect. If you think of the other person as a human being, you might not be so quick to dish out the four letter words and start belittling them. Or maybe it is because this new modern society we live in means that courtesy is old fashioned? One of the things that used to be great about living here was that everybody played nice and understood each other's problems.

Are we as a society destined towards savagery? I'm no wine-sipping gallery owner, but aren't we supposed to climb out on the pit, not roll backwards?

Swearing is not such a big deal in North America; it's all a question of cultural perception.

To some people, savagery is to insult somebody's mother - to others, savagery is to call the police when people say something you don't want to hear.

I think it's pretty normal for people to lose their cool once in a while, as long as it doesn't get out of hand (and nobody gets hurt). Just because we step on each others' toes once in a while, doesn't mean we can't all live together.
