When I was in 3rd grade Catholic school, one day after lunch we were runnignt o the playground and on the walkway were the letters FUC in professional spray painted block letters. I knew from my classes that it was not a word because there was no E at the end or any other letter. I ignored it. The next day someone had scrawled a "K" at the end. I read it eff...you...seee....kay....fuck. It made no sense since it was not a word. A teacher's aid heard me and yanked me to the principal's office (where I heard Nuns used whips with a metal rin on the end to punish you with). No one was there so I was released not knowing what I did. I heard the word the next time about 3 years later and thought I had invented it. I took credit for it and was so adamant about it I convinced others I invented it too.

Up until about the age of 8 I was convinced that the f-word actually was the word Faroono ... yes I now know that, that isn't the word nor is a word at all. But for some unexplained reason I thought this when I was younger ... and of course I never thought to clarify it with my parents because I didn't want to get in trouble for saying the f-word to them...

When my daugher was young (before she knew profanity), she was really angry at me because it was bed time, and she just didn't want to go to sleep. She balled her fists up next to her face, started shaking, and yelled "You are FOOD"!
In baby language, I believe I got cussed out!

I used to think that the word "wanker" wasn't swearing, and once I went to watch the football (soccer), and when the referee made the wrong decision, me and the rest of the fans got up on the chair and shouted "The Referee's a wanker!" My grandma looked shocked because she thought I was a polite little lad.

I used to believe that if I said words like hell, devil or words related to that. I would be calling the devil and go straight to hell. I remember I would somtimes crawl under a blanket and whisper all those words because then the devil wouldn't hear me.

I used to think our local chase sign read "shit" and our bank of america sign read "Bank Of Asshole", mainly because my parents said those words all the time

Once when I was about 5 (I guess), me, my sister, and her friend Jennifer were playing a game where Jennifer sat on one side of the door and my sister and I would sit on the other side. We would write little notes to each other and slip them under the door. Well, I had come up with something to write to Jennifer..."Jennifer hell bell", I thought it was really cool becuase it rhymed. So I asked my sister how to spell 'hell' and she said 'H-E--Madeline! That's a bad word! I'm going to tell mom!' And I shouted 'No! I didn't know it was!' i was so scared.

In our house we used to have a medical dictionary called the Funk & Wagnell. If me or my brother had something wrong with us Mum or Dad would tell us to "look it up in the Funk & Wagnell" but of course to our ears we heard "look it up you f**ken wagnell". We always wondered what a wagnell was and why our parents were swearing at us.

When I was 3 or 4 my mom lost an earing in our driveway. She told me and my sister (6 at the time) to go look for it.

I went around the driveway saying "i'm gonna find that bastard!" over and over again.

My sister told my mom and my mom told me was bastard ment.

When I taught preschool, I had a class of four year olds, and we were talking about rhyming words. I was asking what words rhyme with truck. I got words like duck, luck, etc. One girl said f**k. It was so innocent, though, I just think she was putting the sounds together. I don't think she knew it was a bad word.
Another girl in the same class, drew a picture on the back of her 1 paper, she was supposed to draw a picture of 1 thing. I asked her what it was and she said it was a bitch. It took me a long time to figure out she was saying fish, I guess she just couldn't quite form the word right.

I heard someone use the word "slut" and I thought that was a really cool nickname. I called just about everyone I knew a slut until I finnally called my mother a slut. Then she filled me in on the real meaning. :)

When I was little (about 5 or so) we were all comparing our packed lunches in the dining hall. Somebody asked me how many sandwiches I had and I said two, and stuck up my index and middle finger (in the UK this is rather rude). OPne of the older kids reported me to the dinner ladie for swearing, and I had to stand at the naughty wall all lunchtime.

I hadn't even heard of swearing at the time and was really upset because I had no idea what I'd done.

In Kindergarten, my teacher said she was "tired of all this tattle tale crap" and my jaw dropped because I thought crap was as bad as saying any swear word... I told my parents and they laughed.

I used to believe that the term 'flat tyre' was a swear. My parents' car broke down one day in the middle of the street. Trying to be helpful, I poked my head between the front seats and suggested it might be a flat tyre. I got a slap from my mum. I thought at the time I'd said something I shouldn't have...

I picked up the word "whore" from an old babysitter and one day my mother told to me to 'stop swearing' I was stunned.

One day my mother thought I was lying and I said, "I SWEAR I DIDN'T DO IT MOMMY. OH MY GOD, NO I DIDN'T MEAN TO SWEAR MOMMY I MEAN I PROMISE."

I never saw such a look..

Once at my grandmother's house I was wheeling around a baby doll and kept telling my older brother to try and take it from me, each time he did I smacked his arm and shouted, "GET OFF HIM YOU BASTARD!" not knowing what it meant, grandmom set me straight...

Another one of these stories goes for my cousin. I was in the car with my cousins and my aunt, one of the girls was my age and her brother was a little younger. Out of the blue she hugged him and said, "YOU BASTARD!" she mistook it as a compliment and my mother never looked so stunned (until a few years afterward.)
