    Believe me its not my common language, honestly it never comes out of my mouth so yes a little ashamed that I did say it. But at the point when there is a flame inches from my face....

    Yeah, that's a ridiculous view to take. If someone injures themselves, it is 100% natural to exclaim, as is it when you're shocked. I rarely swear, but when I do it is usually related to a situation like this. (I didn't even swear when I put my hand through a window for example).

    To try to say that someone swearing when they have flames shooting out of something which they are right next to/working on is a shameful thing to do is nonsense pure and simple!

    It looks to me that MK-2 is joking, he said "The word sense", not "the word s***e". It's a play on words guv!

    Oh well, my sarcasm detector isn't working properly today - I got into work to find our main AD server broken.

    He was - if they'd bothered to read his post he said the word sense shouldn't be used around kids, presumably as there aren't many swear words that start with an s and end with an e!

    Speaking from experience, sometimes it's the automatic response. Myself and NM were working on the old building, doing..oh, I forget what. Class full of quiet kids, then "BZZT!", we both got a hefty shock. It was a case of "BLOODY HELL!..erm..I mean "Ouch".."

    I had a PSU go off gunshot style right by my ear one day..managed to catch that and turn it into a "FU...OOOOOOK! That..hurt. Ow."

    When my junior tech got propelled across the gym by a live-earth short on a metal pedestal he was working on, he let rip a few choice words..some were aimed at me, as i picked up my radio and said "Body bag to the gym please, we've just killed him. Yes, you heard me. BANG, and he's flat on his back. Oh no, wait..I can see signs of life. Either that or he's having a fit..".

    Ruddy electrocution virgins.. It was his last day to boot! Poor lad.

    I did something similar and aimed it a OH&S officer/teacher when we (as students) had a mishap in another class (and no, there isn't/wasn't a body) "Is there a OH&S officer around? what do we need to do when working near a dead body"
