    You mean like "darn" and "drat" and "Oh, fudge!"? – Hot Licks Sep 1 '15 at 0:48
  • Do a web search on "minced oath" and you'll find plenty of options. – choster Sep 1 '15 at 2:18

Silence. I realise it may be among the less common alternatives. I find, however that using it consistently is the only alternative that actually quenches the urge.


It could be "crap", "dang", "dammit" and so on.

    "Crap" and "dammit" are generally considered vulgar (though less so than the OP's offerings). – Hot Licks Sep 1 '15 at 12:32
  • @HotLicks funny thing is, the OP before the current revision had no "for an adequate daily usage" line... – technophyle Sep 2 '15 at 16:38
