Terrible language in all but two! Finally stopped!

Soooo unfortunate! These could have been good stories. I skipped through all of them but two! There was so much bad language! I finally stopped at the 8th story when the F word was used. If any of the other stories were any good I couldn’t tell you. It’s sad that the English language is so degraded!
