I saw a truck that said "non-potable water" on it. Not knowing that word, I thought it said "non-PORTABLE water", and wondered how they could transport it in a truck if it's not portable.

I thought that the term "mild-mannered" meant the person didn't have very good manners, as I knew "mild" meant "not very much" (due to things like mild hot sauce), but had never heard that definition of "manner(ed)" before.

I thought that "caucus" was a bad word (not sure where I heard that word as a kid, but whatever) it took ages for me to get up the courage to ask my mom if it really was, as I was afraid I'd get in a lot of trouble if it turned out to be something really offensive
