Re: abusive language
"Please do not use abusive language, sir (or madam)."
If it continues then if it's a phone conversation "I am terminating this call due to your abusive language" then hang up.
If the conversation is taking place face-to-face then the same applies to begin with but terminate it with "I am not prepared to continue speaking to you due to your abusive language" and walk away.

Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
