How we speak has much the same effect as the clothes you wear. It shapes how others see us and how we see ourselves. If you speak like a street ganger then it will have much the same effect around others as dressing as a street ganger. It may be perfect for when you are hanging with a street gang but would likely cost you a job in an interview. Just as speaking in proper business manner will impress at an interview but leave you looking like a sell out to your gang buddies.
I have learned that it is a simple matter to adjust my speech to match the occasion. Think of it like role playing (something we should all be familiar with); if you are at a high society party then you speak with proper enunciation with no trace of any vulgarities and maybe even spruce up your language with a few attractive and witty words... just like the gown and jewelry you are wearing. Become high society in a high society event and you will be well received, change language to match the image you are presenting at the time.
Also it is a bit revealing the language people choose to use when they are being casual. When you are in casual mode you are at your most comfortable this is the closest to the real you.
