Default What should I say?

Let's say I'm doing a project around the house and I hit my thumb with a hammer. I've become rather preconditioned to yell out either "Shit!" or "Fuck!" This is so ingrained that I do it without even thinking about it. Problem is, I have a young daughter who is prone to repeating things, so the wife wants me to stop.

My question to you guys is: What should I say that is more PC? And how do I train myself to say this?

It's pretty difficult to change your natural reaction to pain. Damn near impossible, actually. Words won't hurt your daughter. Just make sure you have your wife tell your daughter that those are adult words and it's inappropriate for children to say those things each time she hears you. Communicating with her is the biggest key, not watching what you say for every situation.

How about, "No, I won't have sex with you!" Or, "Not on the first date Justin!"

Something she can learn now and use when she's 14.

"Only second base this time!"

I really wouldn't know what to do. I've never been a person to curse in frustration or in pain. I'm usually pretty damn calm and silent when it comes to pain, which is weird compared to most people that I've known. At most I say Owwww.

lmao i used to have this same problem when i was playing sports regularly and lost the ball or screwed up. I'd just yell "F***" real loud. I got thrown out of a game for it 5 minutes into it, RIGHT AFTER our captains were warned that he would throw people out for bad language. I couldn't help it, it was just habit. So frustrating when you always feel like you ****ed something up to lose the ball, more than it being out of your control

Just scream. Your immediate reaction to pain needn't be articulate. It's probably easier to change your habit to something beastial and inarticulate than some awkward euphemism.

two things to choose from

1) watch the Adam West version of Batman over and over

2) be a white guy in your 40s , the type that says lots of corny/cheesy/ meaningless words
