 New Yorkers Express Concern Over Widespread Use of Swear Words

A sizeable section of New Yorkers are unhappy over the widespread use of bad languages in public, often within hearing range of children.

Angelique Serrano, 12, and Amanda Torres, 14, said that they hear it all the time.

"They say the N-word, they say the F-word and stuff," CBS News quoted Serrano as saying.

"I don't think it's appropriate either because a lot of kids are around and they're going to get used to those words," Torres said.

It's everywhere - from the subway to the playground to very loud cell phone calls.

"It's New York, everybody curses. It's just a formal language everybody has in them," Manhattan resident Nichelly Pena said.

"It's just the way it is. It used to be taboo, not anymore," Fred Haghighi of Newark, N.J, said.

While many people say they let it go, Dinah Day, who is an etiquette expert, has spoken up about the issue.

"I will say in the subway, I will say on a bus, 'I'm sorry I'm finding that offensive. Could you keep your voice down' or 'That really bothers me,' or 'There are children on the bus,'" Day said.
