Angry but Friendly

You are inline at the grocery store with your kids, but suddenly you hear the man behind you utter some pretty ugly profanities. What should you do?

If you're feeling brave and comfortable enough, ask him to safe his trash talk for another venue. You might feel angry but a friendly approach is more likely to get result (and avoid anything nasty). Say something politely like "Execuse me, would you mind toning down the language? My son/daughter always shows off in front of his/her grandmother whatever new words he/she picks up. Thanks!"

If you are at uncomfortable, do not say anything. Either way discuss the cursing with the kids as soon as you can.

Believe it, when you can manage your anger, you can also control the situation.
