I used to think that when you bought a checkbook you could use as much money as you wanted out of it. I thought they must be really expensive if you could spend as much as you wanted..lol

Once my friend and I were eating lunch together in the school cafeteria, and I got a can of juice. It said ME 5 cents. Well my friend apparently thought that ME was the abbreviation for Michigan even though it doesn't contain an E. She said, "That's not fair, it costs 5 cents to get it in Michigan but it costs 50 cents (I can't remember the actually price at school) to get it in Connecticut and everywhere else?" I tried to correct her but she didn't listen.

Mind you this was in 6TH GRADE!

I used to believe that all adults always had money. I remember asking my mom for some money once and being shocked and not believing her when she said she didn't have any.

In Kindergarten, I used to believe that when you "borrowed" money, you had to pay back the same coins or bills you borrowed. In the 1960's, milk at school cost a nickel. Sometimes the teacher would suggest that a student who forgot his or her milk money "borrow" a nickel from someone else. But if the nickel went to the cafeteria to pay for the milk, how could you pay the same nickel back to the person you borrowed it from?

When I was very young I assumed adults bought money at stores. Since money was the only means which I knew of to make purchases, I deduced they bought money with money at a 1:1 ratio, which made no sense even then but seemed like the only rational possibility

I used to think the logo for The National Lottery in the UK was not of a hand with crossed fingers, but some kind of weird-looking, sinister fish.

When I was 9 years old I thought "several" was a synonym for seven that people used for no real reason. I also thought of a "fortune" as 40 dollars because I couldnt imagine anyone having more money than that.

When I was a young kid I used to believe that the best way to make money was to buy something. Everytime my mum took me to the shop and brought something she always got money! (little did I know it was just change.....)There was always the alternative of the magical hole in the wall that dispenses all the money one desired (or an atm...)

I used to believe that the money I deposited into the bank would go into a special box with my name on it that stored the same exact bills that I gave the bank.

I never understood the concept of working and getting paid, but I understood the concept of getting drinks refilled, and I used to think that parents did the same with their wallets they would spend money, and then type in how much they spent and that much would pop into their wallet, like when you get a drink refill you tell them what kind it was.

I used to believe that when someone said they had a dollar, it was equal to a normal dollar (4 quarters). But when they said they had a buck, a buck was equal to 2 dollars (8 quarters).
