52. The " F " word

Well, growing up in a very blue collar town and working blue collar job's all my life it was common to me and kids my age from a very early age and more so when we got into the workforce, however it was seldom if ever heard in most peoples homes , just at school or later at work, I agree it has gotten so common anymore that, regretfully, it isn't the shocker it used to be in almost any company nowadays. One story I must share however, while it was not normal to hear it in most peoples homes that did not apply to my father, he constantly used it day in and day out. My mother was half afraid of him because he could be abusive so said nothing. My great grandmother however was another story, I will never forget and still laugh to this day when he used it in her house one occasion {she was his maternal grandmother} after being warned about it and she proceeded to drag him by the hair to the kitchen sink and literally washed his mouth out with for real a bar of ivory laundry soap. He was bent over trying to avoid it , turned his head away screaming to leave him alone but she was having none of it, she stuck it in his mouth and literally scrubbed for probably 10 seconds or so before letting him go. He was abusive to my mother and me sometimes but he obviously didn't have it in him to fight his grandmother. She was a pretty tough old scottish lady who lived most of her life in the coal fields, her family on both sides were coalminers s as was her husband whom was killed in a cave in in 1948 in a roundup MT. coal mine. Anyway I watched this scene go down and still think it's one of the funniest things ever since at the time he was 51 and she was 95
