When I was 7 i was in the car with my dad, mum, nan and grandad. I turned to my grandad and said "grandad, are you a bastard?"
(I'd overheard some teenage lads yelling at some old guy calling him a bastard earlier that day so I'd become increasingly curious as the day progressed)
you should have seen his face! haha
childhood naivety is so funny lol
my parents still tease me about it to this day

When my brother and I were little my parents told us that it was against the law to swear if you were under 18 (probably to keep us from repeating some of the stuff we heard from our father). I'm embarassed to say that I believed this until I was about 10.

When my sister was a baby everyone was trying to teach her to talk. My mother would always say she "shit" her diaper when she would have to change her. So one day when my sister dirtied her diaper I screamed, "Hey mom she shit her diaper!" And of course me being the big sister and her always looking up to me she had to copy my word. And the first word that came out of my little sister's mouth was shit. For awhile that was the only word she would say. And of course I couldn't understand why I would get in trouble for it and not her.

I thought that "bastard" meant turkey, so I said to my dad, "You bastard." He told Mom, who made me look it up in the dictionary and apologize. (He was the 6th son out of 12 children)

As a child, my mother had a flower box on the front porch. She tended to be pretty foul-mouthed, and her favorite curse when frustrated was "Son of a bitch!"

For some reason, I always thought that the flower box on the front porch was the "son of a bitch."

When I was six, I had some cousins whose parents were very strict with them in most everything. I remember saying to them "No way, Jose!" From their reaction, I ended up beleiving the name Jose was an actual swear word for a few years after.

Iused to believe that if I sweared, the devil would climb up a rope from Hell and taunt me... My parents made me believe this, saying I was calling for the devil if I sweared.
If sure worked, but for yeasr I was scared half to death every time someone sweared

This wasnt me (it was me and my uncle wen dey were little)

My Uncle we are talking bout here is the youngest out of 4 boys. And my mum was the youngest out of 3 girls. Well since my 2 aunties were too busy in their lives my mum was stuck looking after him. My uncle would swear 24/7 even if my grandad threatened to take off his belt and smack him with it across the back side! so one day my mum said "I know an even worse word u can use, its worser than f**k, its worse than sh*t. Can u guess wot it is?" so of course he thinks about it, so with that my mum says "dont tell anyone!" he nodds his head, and my mum goes "........Turnip!" Of course my uncle being young, immature and gullible every time he wanted to call someone a nasty rude word he would always call them a turnip...this happened until he realised that turnip was a vegetable not a swear word.

I believed till probably about 11 years that the word "hassle" was profanity, from my father's livid use of it at one time. I think I confused it with a similar sounding word.

I was shocked, shopping in Next one day with my mum, when I looked up and read the signs 'menswear'. I got quite upset and didnt tell my mum, then seen the sign 'childrenswear'! I started to cry. My mum asked me what was wrong? I said 'mum men swear in here, and so do children!!!' Obviously I couldn't read correctly being only three years old... bless me!

When I was younger, I was playing with a friend who wanted to tell me a secret. She asked me to swear that I wouldn't tell anyone. I replied that I wasn't allowed to swear.

When I was in third grade, our teacher had left the room for a minute and left me "in charge" of taking names while she was gone. Well, all was well until I told the teacher that a girl said a bad word. She asked me what she said and I told her "the B-Word!" The girl got in trouble and had to write sentences. All for saying "Butt"!

I know a kindergartener who thinks that "Dude" is the worst word ever. She was very upset when one of her classmates said "Dude!!"
