So when I was very young, they released a large number of pedophiles from jail in one go in my town. This lead to my mother explaining to her vocabulary proficient 3 toddler what a pedophile was, and that they’re bad people who want to hurt little kids.
Well a couple weeks later I get lost in the mall. My parents start frantically looking and hear me screaming pedophile at the top of my lungs. They race over and it’s this little old lady who had tried to ask me if I was lost, apparently she was mortified.
It’s been 24 years and it’s still brought up at family functions.
