Poll: Are swear words no longer?

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

In 2023, Apple amended its autocorrect function to allow Iphone users to freely use their intended word without mentioning 'ducks'. Is this a sign of the times? Are swear words no longer taboo in our communities or workplaces?

Julia from Avondale

Leaving for work at 7:20 this morning 24.07.2024 probably half a sleep hadn't noticed that our 2017 Vulcan Trailer Rego 8Q721 had been stolen.
We work hard to make a living. I work with Stroke patients and the other guy's work in our mowing business. It has taken us years to build our business up and purchase equipment. But it just took a few seconds for someone take part of it away.
We were told that Lynfield was one of the best places to live by AA our insurer. Hmmm.
We reached out to our neighbours but never heard back apart from two. Not even to say no we didn't see anything and at least be friendly or slightly concerned. Because hey it might be you next and wouldn't you want some friendly neighbourly love if that should happen. It's bad enough that i already feel like a stranger in my own country. And scared to walk in my own street because people aren't friendly they just stare at you. I am actually a nice person. If you live in Halsey street say hello. Jules
