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.

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...)

Til I was about 8 I had no idea what swearing was, someone told me that this boy in a movie swears a lot. I told my friend that this boy had sex (I had a vague idea of what that was).

I used to believe "retro" was a vulgar word. It's odd now especially since I'm a retro gamer.

Because of the way swear words were censored on TV when i was little, i thought the' F word" was actually 'fuff'. I think i thought that until i was 9 or 10

I used to think that when someone say bad words on movies or in songs that they would mix 2 words together to make a bad word. Because if you cussed, then devil would come and take you.

Once in elementary school our teacher instructed us to write a skit. So I wrote "skit" in big cursive letters on my notebook. The kid next to me thought my 'k' was an 'h' and started gasping and saying, "You cussed!" For several years afterward I was convinced that "skit" was the s word and avoided using it at all costs.

At the age of nine, I was helping my dad fix the plumbing behind a wall. After dropping his wrench down the inside of the wall he swore, I was so shocked that I exclaimed hiw I didn't even know he knew that word!

I used to think that every time you swore, God (Im Catholic, thank you.) Would make a checkmark on a clipboard, and if her ran out of room on his clipboard, you would go to hell for bad language.

My childhood friend told me that his father had said the phrase "like so" and then admonished my friend to never say those words because it was a swear. Later, I watched an instructional TV show about oil painting and the instructor repeated the swear over and over. it was the dirtiest show I had ever seen! Later in life I realized that the phrase my friend heard was "___hole"
