I used to think that stupid was a curse, and when my dad took me to the hard rock cafe there was a song on called 'stupid girl' or something (it was a long time ago) where the girl sais stupid about 17 times in a row. I was in shock. my dad was like 'what?'

i also used to think that cursing was saying a bad word, and that the word 'swearing' was a bad word. And for a while, that they both meant casting a mean spell on someone...

About swearing, I'm Irish, and we have a....colorful word choice.

So, I was playing A-10 Cuba flight sim about 11 years ago, good old Win 95 :P (some of you might know the sim, and I just showed my age), and was stuck on a mission, so I first said f**k you to an enemy, but very, very quietly. I completed the mission, but got shot down. I then yelled something like...f**king c**t s**t b******s. At the exact moment my father walked in.

Yep. Great timing

When I was 3 I watched a Micky Mouse cartoon where Mickey called Pluto a dumb mutt. I thought he said damn it, so I figured it was ok to say it. My mom wasn't happy when I repeated it...

When I was 4 I was told not to use God's name in vain. I thought this just meant saying the word "God" at all. So I thought that you were supposed to say "Fairy Goshmother" instead of "Fairy Godmother".

What's weird about this is that I later found out this was just a belief on my mom's side of the family and not my dad's. It can be very confusing to be raised in a family of both a believer in God and someone who doesn't quite believe in Him that much.

not really a belief, but when I was little my friend told me he liked to make up words, so I decided to try it. On my first attempt I came up with the F word. I was playing with blocks in the living room and blurted it out right in front of both my parents, like, "Hey, look what I made". The memory of how angry they got keeps me from swearing to this day (Junior in high school).

when i was little i thought 'rats' was a bad word. so when my brother loudly shouted out "RATS!" in frustration i was appalled that he had actually said a bad word!

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 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.
