As the youngest, at 5,of about a dozen cousins visiting us on our farm in 1951, I was the one who, wanting to be like the older kids, said "damn it!" in front of the grownups. My Mom washed my mouth with the suds from a bar of green Palmolive soap. I always think of it when I see 'A Christmas Story'.
I thought "gay" was a bad word when I was young for a while. I got the idea because whenever my brother and dad would laugh when I said something, and I said it to my mom, she would say it was bad. I heard the word somewhere and said it around them and they laughed, so I just assumed.
when i used to watch thomas the tank engine in kindergarten, i giggled everytime the narrator mentioned the 'fat controller' because i kept mishearing it as 'f***controller or 'f***ed controller' lol.
one time when I was little I was playing outside with my friends and I saw GRAFFITI but I was 2 young to know what it is so I was reading it and I was like
What is that? so After I went home i asked my sister
"What does FUCK mean?"
She stared yelling at me and then I never said it ever. again until 7TH GRADE!! hahahah lol
Yea then she told me what it meant!
When I was younger I rode the bus to and from school, and after school I went to a daycare. One day someone said that they were "PO'ed" and I asked my friend what they meant. He whispered really quietly what it really meant, butI didn't realize that it was a bad word.
A few days later I was in the room and my parents were talking with some friends, and one of them remarked, "Oh I'm so PO'ed." I looked at them and said in the most sincere way, "Oh, why are you pissed off?" Needless to say, my mom was not happy about this.
I saw the "F" word in several bathrooms when I was little, and I thought that it was the name of a guy who went to different bathrooms and signed his name in them. I asked my mom who it was, and she told me to never say that word again...
I was a 90's kid and The Violent Femms' "Add It Up" was always on the radio.
When we were really young my brother and I would think nothing of singing "Why can't I get just one screw?!" (Or worse), at the top of our lungs at any time in school.
We didn't really get what a curse word was and thought it was just another word like "cat" or "dog".
I used to believe that the word "stupid" was a swear. After finding out it wasn't, I used it continually for a week straight.
I used to believe that “shut up” was a swear word.
I used to believe that swearing was just saying, “I swear!”
i used to beleive that swearing would get you thrown i jail....and my dad was a police officer... i think that he told me that.
I used to not kno what fag meant, and one day I called my friends older rother a fag and he slapped me. (I was about 5)
when i was at the age of 6 or so, i went to kids church (kinda like sunday school) and the conversation for that day was not to say Gods name in vein. well it was obviously clear that i didnt know what vein meant... at that point i thought it meant we were never to say it or it would be bad... so when we were at the dinner table saying our prayers my dad ended it with "in Jesus name i pray" and i stopped him abruptly and said "Dont say that! Its a bad word!" he stared at me with a confused look. soon my mom corrected me that its okay to say it but not as a swear word. im teased to this day and i can tell u right now i never say his name in vien :D
When I was little I used to believe that god's last name was damnit
When I was like 5, I heard the B word and I thought it sounded at LOT like peach so I beleived it wasn't a bad word but it still meant that you hated them. So when I was angry at my Mom, I called her the B word. Then my dad got angry at me and all that. So I found it was a bad word.
I used to believe that every time I said a bad word, tiny invisible elves would walk over and pinch me really hard.
My mother told us that "mousketeer" and "kimosabe" were bad words. This was after we'd driven her nuts recreating scenes from "The Lone Ranger" and "Mickey Mouse Club." We believed her. I can only imagine how ridiculous we looked calling someone a "Mousketeer" in total anger.
At the age of about five, I was in the car with my parents, when someone cut us off. My father called the other motorist an asshole. I asked why the guy was a "donkey hole" and got in trouble.
Later that year, I said "son of a bitch" because I heard my cousin say it...and got in trouble. Since a literal son of a bitch would be a puppy, I was afraid to mention puppies around adults for months.
I used to think that flipping someone the bird was called "f*cking them off." Additionally, someone once told me that "reller" was a euphemism for "sh*t," and I believed it.
