1000 or more. I cuss out pokey dumbasses in front of me in traffic and lines in grocery store. I tell my girlfriend to shut up when shes ralltling on about her friends lovelifes. Alll of this silently in my head.

Lately, more than usual – and I mean in regards to some of the things on Fluther. I have been biting my tongue, a lot. The feeling will pass and life goes on!

Depends if I’ve seen my parents that day or not.

i’d never be able to count. especially in class. my mind tends to wander into some strange places when i’m bored.

A lot…probably pretty often when I see someone.

It’s usually nothing terribly bad…just things like “You’re so chubby round I could curl up on your tummy like you’re Totoro and fall asleep!!”

that goes through my head every math class when I see my prof

I don’t think I can count that high. I work with the public-there are so many thoughts that run thru my head. If I said 1/16 of the shit I think, I’d get fired an hour into my day.

A lot. Once I learned that I don’t have to say every GD thing that pops into my head there’s a lot of stuff rattling around in there. But my life is easier and my interactions with other people a lot more pleasant. :)

At work? Too many to count. Outside of work? not much.

Yesterday, on several occasions, I had to pretend like I didn’t notice when a few people were being either very awkward or fake (self-conscious). I don’t have any reason to call them out on it, but I might use those quirks in a story of mine, so it’s a fine line between mentally noting, and trying to act unaffected.

MANY…most of it all’s on the train

I work with kids. “JESUS CHRIST STOP FUCKING WHINING ALREADY” would probably be a bad thing to say, but I think it many times a day…

Well over a hundred a day. So far my censor mode is working well. If it ever fails me I will be the next “House.”

cak's avatar

@Dog – That’s funny. My husband actually pointed that out to me, before I resigned from my job. He said I was losing the ability to use the 7 second delay before saying what was going through my mind. Probably good thing I am self-employed and can talk to myself and the dogs, throughout the day. Keeps me from saying a lot of things that should never leave my mouth!

I couldn’t begin to give a number. I’d say constantly. I mean every time I see a woman that isn’t repulsive, and for me that covers just about all of them.

kevbo's avatar

Every time I put the “jail” in “jailbait.”

casheroo's avatar

Like others, at work is where I’m the most guilty of this. I don’t want to get fired.
Otherwise, I usually say what I’m thinking.

Jeruba's avatar

What an interesting question! (GQ.) I haven’t any idea, but I will listen tomorrow. I can tell you for sure that it isn’t zero.

Russell_D_SpacePoet's avatar

Too many. Also too many times I say it anyway.

augustlan's avatar

I’m alone a lot, so most of the time I could say whatever I’m thinking, but I usually don’t. My head gets quite noisy sometimes!

ohmyword's avatar

At least once for every waking hour. But I come up with many random things in my head I would never in a million years say outloud. So maybe two every waking hour…
