To think saying I'm pissed off isn't swearing?

Just that really. Not said in front of any children, but you'd have honestly thought I'd f'd and blinded the worst swear word under the sun by this woman's reaction. I've never thought of the word pissed as swearing.

BlondeBecky1983 Sat 22-Apr-17 21:39:18

Definitely swearing.

Floggingmolly Sat 22-Apr-17 21:39:46

It is.

coolaschmoola Sat 22-Apr-17 21:40:06

Yes, swearing.

Charlesbakerharris Sat 22-Apr-17 21:40:06

Yep, definitely is. Although not in America, weirdly.

MrsELM21 Sat 22-Apr-17 21:40:09

Yep, it is

BlondeBecky1983 Sat 22-Apr-17 21:40:50

It is, in America also.

Amockingjayhey Sat 22-Apr-17 21:41:01

It is a bit sweary
Not as bad as some. But definitely swearing

Yep, swearing. Saying fucking cunt arse is still swearing even if no children are present.

If my dc told me they were passed off, then I'd tell them off for swearing

weeblueberry Sat 22-Apr-17 21:41:29

100% swearing...

TyneTeas Sat 22-Apr-17 21:41:52

Yes, swearing

ImperialBlether Sat 22-Apr-17 21:42:04

Sorry, OP; it's swearing!

Blumkin Sat 22-Apr-17 21:42:28

*pissed (even my polite autocorrect changed it to passed)

DevilsDumplings Sat 22-Apr-17 21:43:11

I never thought of that as swearing, so there you go! I've never been offended by someone saying they were a bit pissed off. Spent a lot of time in America and no one seemed to think it sweary there as everyone used it (minus the off part)!

For me it's level three swearing:

Level 1:

Level 2:

Level 3:
Piss / pissed

Level 4:

It is swearing. Not the worst thing but definitely swearing. If you'd wanted to not swear you could have said "cheesed off" or just annoyed/frustrated etc.

Primaryteach87 Sat 22-Apr-17 21:49:55

Agree with the above post about levels, except bastard would be in level 3

DeadGood Sat 22-Apr-17 21:50:18

good lord not your levels are all wrong! Shit belongs on level 2 and dick is more a level 3.

LonginesPrime Sat 22-Apr-17 21:51:54

It would be level 3 for me, but I only have three levels:

Level 1:

Level 2:

Level 3:

Would you say it in front of a child? Or in the playground? If not, then it's a swearword.

TwoBeams Sat 22-Apr-17 21:53:38

blush I wouldn't think of this as swearing.
Also bloody hell, Jesus Christ etc blush

bibbitybobbityyhat Sat 22-Apr-17 21:53:44

Yes, piss and pissed off are swearing. I wouldn't want to hear my children saying those words in front of me and I would only say them in front of select people.
