I was always scared of the noise that the bath drain made when the water was draining out and believed that it would suck anyone in the room into the drain so I would run out of the bathroom screaming as soon as the plug was removed! I also would never like to be in the bath when the tap was on filling it up, and hated when there were bath toys floating in the water...i was a weird child

I was always scared to take a shower because I thought a shark lived just below the drain. I could never close my eyes, I would watch for movement througth the holes in the drain, waiting for the shark to burst through.

My older brother and I lived in the 3rd floor apartment of a house until I was 4 (he was 6). I thought the best part of moving was that I could take longer baths. My Mom had told us we couldn't stay in the tub too long because our landlord needed to take a bath too and wouldn't have any water until ours went down the drain into his tub. In our own house, I figured we wouldn't have to share!

When I was in grade school I never wanted to use the school bathroom stall with an air vent above it. I thought the janitor hid up there and watched me while I peed

My mom used to tell me that whenever part of your body itched, that was Gods sign that you needed to take a bath.

We were always told not to go into the water for at least an hour after eating but never told why. I thought that also applied to a bath or shower as well as swimming. My older sister (1 year older) told me if you go into the water to soon, you will shrink up and fall down the drain. While I longed to shrink up enough to live in my doll house, I was afraid no one would get me out in time and I would fall down the drain. This fear kept me safe and somewhat unwashed.

When I first started going to pre-school everything was very strange and new. The bathroom had one of those sinks that is basically a big tub with streams that fan out in a semi-circle. You would turn it on by stepping on a bar that was on the floor. I had never experienced this type of sink before. The teacher would tell us to go wash our hands before our snack. All the kids would run in and crowd around this sink. There would always be kids there before me to press on the bar. So I never understood how the sink turned on. I didn't see any handles or knobs. I thought of lots of differant solutions. Maybe the bathroom had a motion camera like the doors at the super market. I also thought that maybe the teacher would press a button that would turn the sink on and off. It wasn't until i started grade school when there wasn't kids always crowded around it that i discovered the bar on the floor.

When I was little I thought that there was kidnappers behind my shower curtain, so every time I had to go to the bathroom I would try to sneak up to the shower curtain, but they were always gone in time. I wondered how they knew I was coming.

When I was little my mother told me that if I stayed in the tub too long I would turn into a prune, and I believed her entirely, I thought that the purpleish wrinkled skin would continue to progress and that I would spend the rest of my life in the pantry. This also made me think that eating prunes was cannabalism, which I knew about from my grandfather's tall tales (that I didn't know were tall tales).

When I was younger, my brother told me that if I added a little bit of salt to the water in the bathtub, sharks and whales would appear and eat me up. I believed this until I was about 10. Sad, I know.

I was not a smart kid.

When I was like four of five, I used to beleive that if I stayed in the bath long enough, I would turn into a elephant. It is because you get all wrinkly. To get me out of the bath, my mom would always say "oh, I see a trunk!" and I would jump out crying

I used to be so scared while going to the bathroom because there was this clay rabbit head on the wall. I used to belive that its body would emerge from the wall and grow really big and carry me on its back. Then it would jump up really high into outerspace and through me off and jump back to earth as I would sufficate.

i saw a movie once that had a man dressed all in white (kinda like the Glad man) standing outside a bathroom window, peering at a woman while she showered. Yo... I couldn't take showers for the looooooongest time. I mean, I took baths instead!

I used to think that if you looked in the bathroom mirror when the light was turned off, a huge zombie/devil/ghoul/Britney Spears would jump out and eat you alive. This led to my insistence that my unfortunate parents sit outside the bathroom every time I went, just in case there was a blackout.

When I was little, I thought the banging noise coming from the pipes in my bathroom were little men cleaning them out.
