When I was a little kid, I was scared to sit on the toilet because I thought there was a monster inside the toilet that was going to bite me, and I was also scared of the smaller potty that lights up for the same reason. I kept wearing pull-ups until I became old enough to wear underwear.
When I was kid I saw for the first time a dead man. He was an ancient men who lived near my home. For at least some years, I saw the coffin in the corridor in my home near the telephone furniture. I was very scared, when I went from my bedroom to the bathroom and opposite, I used to pass adhering to the wall, and sometimes I asked to the man let me pass.
I will be forever grateful to Mr. Rogers. I thought for sure that I was going to go down the bathtub drain. He assured me we kids couldn't. YAH! Love him forever.
I used to be scared to go in the bathtub because i was afraid that i would get sucked down the drain
I used to believe there was a "toilet monster" that would suck me down the toilet if I sat on the toilet while flushing it, even with a toilet seat. So I made sure to get off the toilet before I flush it, and when I accidently flushed it before getting off, I would run and start screaming!
I used to believe that there was a snake in the toilet that would bite you and that made me and my siblings afraid to use the toilet. We would scream whenever our parents put one of us on the toilet when we had to go, we would take our pull up off and pee or poop all over the floor, it was frustrating for my parents.
I was convinced that the water from the hot tap (the cold was fine) was highly poisonous, and that if you drank it you'd die. And I sort of still do!
I used to think that trolls lived in my shower drain and showered with my dirty water
When I was really small, maybe 4, my mother told me to be careful when bathing because " even George Washington slipped and fell in the bathtub ". I have no idea where this silly belief originally came from, but I believed my mother. I even fleshed it out so to speak in my imagination- George Washington was always standing up in a modern bathtub, naked but wearing his wig, and then suddenly he throws up his arms, yells " whoops!" and down he goes with a big splash.Then I imagined a female voice off stage so.to speak exclaiming "George, George are you all right?" ( Martha of course).It was so real to me.I was very careful in the tub.Years later I asked my mom where she had gotten the George Washington in the bathtub story and she looked at me like I'd lost my mind and said "they didn't even HAVE bathtubs in those days!" I don't know if that's true,but she seemed very sure that George in the bathtub had never been discussed.Years later, she admitted that the story had come from her own mother, who had also denied ever telling it.Generational amnesia, or just generational denial? All I know is that if I ever have a daughter, I will teach her bathtub safety without George Washington and his soggy wig.
I used to believe that my toilet used to contain rats and snakes. I used to be so terrified, I would take a picture of the toilet without looking at it, than looking at the picture to make sure there were no snakes or rats. But now, I like to pretend I'm peeing on the snake or pooping on a rat... but as i did so in my dream, it bit me, and i didnt pee or poop for a week. But now I'm good and I don't have the fear anymore :D
When I was a child, I had a big fear of going to the bathroom alone, I believed that if I gave discharge and leave not running there "Blond's Bathroom" come get me. LOL!
One time when I was 5 or 6 years old I started playing with the water in the bathtub. I just started moving my body back and forth in the tub making these big splashes. The next day alot of people at school were talking about an earthquake that had happened the day before. I thought I was the one who caused it and I even told all my friends that I did
I used to believe, that when I went to the bathroom at night, if I didn't get back to bed before the toilet stopped flushing, a monster would come out and kidnap me.
I used to believe that there was an giant hole right under the bathtub, which is where all the used water would go.
when i was child, i believed there was a ghost in a toilet....
the ghost made me very scared, the face is very dark with the flying body without the feet
so, i run to my bedroom and close the door
when i was a kid i used to think that when someone flushed a toilet while you were in the shower, the dirty toilet water would pour on you.
when I was a kid I turned off the bathroom light and run away in fear of the devil
I used to believe that Ghost Busters slime would eat me in my bath tub. Since I saw it on TV.
I used to believe that if I fell asleep in the bathtub I would wake up in the sea.
I was always certain that there was either an alligator or a shark in the plumbing of my bathtub. I used to tell them stories while I was taking a bath to make sure they didn't eat me. I think I was in my late teens before I stopped worrying about it.
