This belief was caused by "A Christmas Story". Because Ralphie says "fudge" during the movie, I thought that fudge(when used in that way) was the real F-word for a while. I later found out from my friend's potty mouth older sister that this was not the case!

when I was three I believed it was ok to say cuss words when you got mad at people. So when I was ridding in my mom's van with her a guy cut us off so I yelled at his car move f***head.

I thought "f*** you" meant "thank you" in an ironic way, like if you messed your work up and someone is upset.

My grandmother has always had very colorful language and I overheard her saying the word "bastards" as she was hitching up her knee-highs so I some how came to think that panty-hose were called "bastards." Imagine my moms surprise when I went into her room tugging at my tights and told her "MOMMY, I CAN"T GET THESE BASTARDS PULLED UP!" I think she later had a good laugh about it after she set me straight.

Not my belief, but that of a friend's brother:
Try to allow me to take you back to a few years ago, when the (terrible)* band Papa Roach released the video for the (equally terrible) song "Last Resort". For whatever reason, the word "resort" in the chorus was decidedly bleeped out on television, as if it were a cuss word (Still mystified myself, but I choose to file it under Douchebaggery and not think about it too much). Anyway, Friend's Brother, who was maybe 9 or 10 at the time, sincerely thought that the word "resort" was a legitimately offensive one and told on my friend, the older sibling, once or twice for saying it before he was set straight.

*understatement on my part

I wrote some naughty words on the typewriter one time, thinking as long as you don't say those words, it was all right. I still got a whipping.

When I was five, I was in a daycare thing for my school waiting for my mom to take me home. While I was waiting, I wandered into the place where only the 5th graders (or "wise guys" as they were called) were aloud. One big 10-year-old looked at me and said "hey, little girl, you cant be in here!" and I said "Oh yeah I can! I can do whatever I want!" then he told me to shut up. Like most young children, I thought "shut up" was a swear. So i said "AWWWW, you said the 'sh' word!" At this, all the older kids cracked up.

Once when I was about 5, I was riding bikes with my friends and his older brother. His brother was riding toward their mom and said "Move, pedestrian!"
Iwas shocked, because for some reason I thought pedestrian was a "bad word." When we passed his mom, I said "I can't beleive you called your own mom a pedestrian!" he just rolled his eyes and kept peddalling

As a younger child than I am now I had a blanket, but being only small, i would not say " iwant my blanket" I would say, without realising "I want my back shit." It never gets old.

When I was 4 yrs old, my Dad was adding a room onto our house. I saw him hit his finger with the hammer, he didn't say anything afterwards and I asked him "Daddy, aren't you going to call it a "sonofabitch"? I think he had a hard time keeping a straight face.

When i was a chid i used to think the word "mofo" was a general insult like "fool" or "idiot"...so of course i said it a lot in public and i got a lot of looks.

Talking about swearing when we were younger, about 7, my friend asked me if I ever swore. I replied, "not really, but I sometimes call my dad a bloody bugger". We're 14 now, and it was only a few months ago that she realised that it is actually "bloody bugger".... not "bloody BURGER".. lol.

I was almost afraid to say "cinimon bun" or "cinimon toast", because, to me, it almost sounds like you're saying S.O.B.

When I was little I thought the word 'bastard' was just something you called your friends like 'buddy' or 'pal' because my dad called all his friends and brothers 'bastard', like "Hey, bastard how's it going?' When he took me back to my mom's house after his weekend with me I said "Hey bastard!" to her so happily.Mom was convinced my dad set me up to this and wanted to kill him.

didn't know it was cussing!

I used to believe that your "rude finger" meant I hate you. So when we were angry at the teacher, we would all put up our rude finger when she wasn't looking.

Before I was old enough for school, my folks had taught me that "pee" was a bad word...so whenever I had to recite the alphabet, I said those middle letters as "L, M, N, O, bad word". (By the time I hit first grade, thankfully, the teacher set me straight...)
