1. The only Japanese swearing I've heard has been in anime

 

LOL. One time when I was tutoring some kids in their home, I said one of those words I heard in an anime (I think it was ドラえもん?. Anyway, I mentioned it in one of the classes, thinking that it was OK to say it front of kids because it was in an anime, after all. But ママ became very flustered and I ended up losing that lucrative job. ちくしょう!

2. Now that I think about it, it was ドラえもん where I learned that expression

 

In one episode, のび太くん said "ちくしょうあいつら!" which I was told meant something like "Why those lousy bums!" But when I said that to my students when discussing that particular cartoon, ママ had a fit! And it cost me my job, making $60 for talking to kids for an hour

I can laugh about that now...
