Default Is "Pissed" a Bad Word?

Taking a poll, do you consider "pissed" a bad word rated up there with the "F" word and "S" word?

I keep things respectful around my house and I always believed pissed rated among not nice words like stupid or shut up but not really really bad words as above.

What is your view??

I added the poll for you!

I think it is a bad word and I would never allow my DCK's or my own children to use it. Nor would I say it in front of daycare children or parents as it sounds bad IMHO.

I think it is kind of one of those words that just makes a person not sound so professional...kwim?

I voted yes. I was raised that piss is the bad word for pee as Sh!t is the bad word for poop.

Either way you slice it, I wouldn't want my kids saying it.

I think it's about like stupid and shut up to me but I don't allow my children or dck's to say it. I don't even let them say "crap" even though I've had one that constantly likes to say that one. I just don't think it ranks with the "f" word or some of the other really bad words. That's just my opinion though for what it's worth

I vote yes..... I am not allowed to say this word, kids should not say it either.

I tell my kids I will only use words that I would expect to hear from you and this is one of them....

To me this word has two meanings...In USA it means you are very mad, slang
and in my home country it means that you are very drunk on beer, again slang.

Neither of these I think is the right way to teach a child. If a child is angry it is ok, but teach them kind words to express their anger. AND the other one, well you should never talk to kids about being drunk....lol

it's not acceptable in my house by children, or in front of children. But, it's not a cuss word, just a disrespectful word.

I voted depends because I don't consider it a "bad" word like some others but it is not a polite word. I definitely would not allow the kids to say it nor would I ever say it in front of them.

I rank pissed up there with crap and shut up. Just rude. I say it, but not around the kids. And yes, I'm a hypocrite, but I expect that neither my own kids or any of the daycare kids keep respectful language in the house.

I voted yes, though I don't think it ranks up there with the "f" or "s" words. I say it, but try not to in front of my kids, NEVER in front of other people's kids, and don't let mine say it.

I voted no but I still wouldn't allow it. Here we have a difference between "Bad words" and "toilet words". Bad words are super No no words and that require that I tell the parents that their child said it such as A**, S***, F*** etc. (I bleeped out the words myself lol).

Then we have "toilet words" that are still unkind or ill-manered that they are still not allowed to use but they don't get into as much trouble for. These are things like shut up, butt-head, stupid, pissed and others depending on how they are used. For example the kids can say they have to go poop but they can't call someone a poop KWIM.

It depends. This is one of my potty words-words that aren't really ugly but they sound really tacky. I don't use it, mostly because it just doesn't carry any strength for me (not because I'm goody-goody). My dc kids aren't talking enough yet to be using these words, but I never let my grandkids say them. They are mostly grown now, so I can't really control them any more, but I still frown real hard when they use potty words.

I agree with the OP. I don't like the word and don't allow its use around here, but if I hear someone say it, I don't really consider it a swear word.....

I also voted depends. My dckids don't use it. I do. It definitely is not up there with an f-bomb but I would suggest other possible words for my young friends to use instead. Then strongly suggest that they use their other option from now on. I like the 'toilet words' idea.

To me, it is a crude word and definitely an "adults-only" kind of word.

I never considered it a bad word, but I don't think it sounds very nice either. I don't say it and I don't let my kids or my day care kids say it either. I think it is a matter of opinion. It doesn't offend me if another adult says it and it is not in front of the children.

I even think "Shut Up" is a bad word...

My children ashually taught me the sign language for Shut Up...a more polite way their teacher taught them when she wanted to get the classrooms attention and the kids where being to loud..she'd call to a student...bop her mouth and point up...I laughed so hard when my son did it...wasn't expecting that at all!!

I don't know if it is officially considered a "bad" word or not, but this reminded me of what my mother used to say... It's better to be p-ssed off than p-ssed on!"

when I was in 8th grade Cra# was the word all the girls were using... we thought we were cool it was not a cuss word..... until a teacher said I would not hold in my hand what you have in your mouth.

When I was a kid it was definately a cuss word... it is used so often that it is a common word now.. along with Bit##

So what they are all just rude words until you say MF???

Kinda makes you think about what we teach our children and what is to come in the next 10 to 20 years.

I remember as a child, people didn't really say the word pregnant that much. It was a very private/family thing it seemed and not such a public thing.

My son who's a freshmen this year has started the crap thing. I can't get it through his head its just the slang work for "BLEEP" and hes still cussing just in a different way.

I don't use words like that or even cuss so thats why it bothers me soooooo much.

While it certainly isn't the F word or any of the majors I still would not use it in a daycare. You said it is it like stupid or shut up I'm not going to tell a parent if they sya shut up or stupid but I will talk to the child about NOT using those words.

ok here's why I ask....My 8 1/2 year old daughter who is generally a good kid, was sent to the principals office by her teacher for saying the word pissed. I guess it was at the lunchroom and 2 girls wouldn't leave her alone and it flowed out of her mouth.

This isn't something I have ever heard her say and she has always been respectful so it was an isolated incident. The day it happened my daughter immediately told me at pick up from school that she was sent to the principals office for swearing. When I asked her what she said she said it started with a "p" and it was the other word for "pee". Her teacher did email me and said she was sent to the office for swearing, I emailed back and asked what she said and she replied "piss".

I thought to myself "WHAT!!??" Ok, agreed not a nice word but sent to the principals office for THAT word...seriously. She would of been fine with a talking to and we don't say that here. My daughter would of been fine with that because she is normally respectful. I was just floored that the teacher ranked it up there with swearing, because I have always thought it just doesn't sound respectful, not flat out swearing.

I agree with the teacher. It is not just a impolite word like shut up.. it is a cuss word.

If a teacher would be disiplined for using the word on class then a child should be also.

too many words are used on tv and by parents these days. The kids soak it up and use them also.

My rule is is you would not say it to your grandma or in church you shoud not be saying that word.


so the teacher sent her to the principals office for a talking to and SHE decided to go home? the school did not suspend her?

I'm sorry that happened to your daughter. I hope the two girls that provoked her were punished as well, because they should have been.

I voted No! I am not sure why most of you think it is a bad word!

I use that word all the time when I get angry at someone.


Most of kids don't say that words, not ever my daughters just yet.

It is your opinions that it is a bad word but not to me.

Imagine my horror when my sons teacher called me and said that one of the little girls in the class room came to her with that my son said "Holy S**T"....

He wasn't send to the principle..he prob. should of bc that is a cuss word for sure...

Instead his teacher called to inform me which I very much appreciated bc that kind of laug. should go right where it belongs...in the trash!

I was really embarrassed...she made me feel that as the parent and the influencer he's learned that from home. And although we generally don't speak like that. But things slip out. I really feel that sometimes kids really try things out and it's important that the first response to something they shouldn't say or do reflect that immediately so in their minds it's already set that that's a no-no. So far, it hasn't happened again...but I can't say the same for one of my daycare kids...I heard the "F" come out and I ashually asked him to repeat it bc I couldn't believe what I was hearing coming from a 3 yr old. I didn't make a huge deal about it but I did tell him that that was a bad word one we do not say. Some parents say words like that...grow up words that little people like you are not aloud to repeat or say. I've ashually had to speak to the parents a few time on swear words.

There's only a few words that bother me, but kids shouldn't be saying even the smallest of curse/questionable words.

I don't think it is a bad word, but I don't think it is a great word either, if that makes sense. It is sort of like the word damn to me. I don't think either word is int he same category as the f-word, but they are not words I like to hear out of my kid's mouths, so we try not to say them in front of them. I have some very close english friends though, and the word pissed means being drunk for them, so I can see it from their perspective too. So, anyway, not a great word, but not a bad word that falls into the swear word category for me.

Just to add, if a kid said, "I am so pissed right now!" I would say "Henry, you mean you are so angry or upset right now" and just ignore the word, but if they said "I am so f***ing mad" I would tell them we do not use that word and also speak to thier parent about it, incase they are hearing that language at home frequently.
