Our sinks in the bathrooms at primary school made a lot of noise when the water was going down the plughole, so we all thought creatures like little turtles were in the pipes and drinking all the water. We were only 6 at the time!
When I was 3 or 4, I asked where the bath water when when the drain opened. My Dad told me a big frog drank it all. For a couple years I was terrified to take a bath beacuse I thought the frog was going to swallow me.
Ww went to a shopping mall when I was about five years old, and my mom asked me if I had to go to the restroom. I belived that she was asking me if I wanted to sit and rest. I pictured a large room with lots of couches and chairs for people to sit on if they got tired from their shopping. I told I didn't need to rest and wasn't tired, but she then told me that a restroom was the same thing as a bathroom.
Until about 6 months ago (I'm 21), I believed a bidet was used to wash your feet in.
I used to believe that the reason toothpaste was effective was because of how it burned in my mouth. So it effectively burned the plaque and germs away. Same with Listerine.
I used to be super paranoid about weird things happening to me when I was little.I used to think my eyeballs were going to fall out while I was in the shower.It's funny,my mom used to have to take me a shower till I was like in the First grade.
i used to believe that if i used the showerhead in the shower it would be the devil giving me a massage
i used to believe that when you flushed the toilet and you turned on the water in the bathroom sink that it was the water from the toilet!!!!! i'm wierd i know
When I was young I believed razors were little vaccum cleaners that sucked the beard off. I remember trying it after my father shaved and consequently had a bloody cheek.
For a good chunk of my childhood, I was extremely leery of taking baths, and when I did, I refused to put my head in the water. My reasoning? I was certain that the water could seep in through my ears and drown me by suffocating my brain.
When I was young, I read something in a book by a Brittish author which said that in a submarine, food was stored anywhere possible, even "in the toilet". Not knowing that they ment the bathroom, I was confused why they would keep food in a toilet,
because did they bother to take it out before they flushed or not, and I wondered why they didn't cosider this metod of storage unhealthy.
When I was younger,I used to believe that people ran in place while they took a shower. I guess it was the sound of the water hitting the ground or something...I really don't know. When I was tired I would take a bath because I didn't want to run for so long.
When I was little my there was a hole in the bathroom wall where my brothers had slammed the door to hard. Anyways I always had this irrational fear that there was a guy in the wall and I went potty really fast so he wouldn't shoot me.
When I was little my mom to me that if I didn't get out of the tub I would turn wrinkly and stay that way. For quite a few years I thought that old people with lots of wrinkles had stayed in the tub too long!
One night, when I was 6, I watched a show with my parents about psychos that killed people in their own homes. I got freaked out by that show and needed to go, so I ran upstairs to the bathroom. But when I saw that the lights were left on and the toilet wasn't flushed, I tried to hold it in because I thought that the psycho was hiding in the shower! Needless to say, my parents did not appreciate having to vacuum the carpet each day.
To this day, I'm still a little paranoid.
I used to believe that while I was taking a shower, if I turned my back the devil would come out of the drain.
when i was little i was so afraid of my grandma's bathroom window it was close to a hill with a bunch of really tall pine trees and that reminded me about Jurassic park and i was deathly afraid of dinosaurs so i always thought that a big t-rex was going to come crashing through the trees and eat me.
At my grandmas house, and onlly at my grandma's house, I check behing the shower curtain before I go to make sure that there is nobody bad behind there.
Thanks to Stephen King and Alfred Hitchcock, I believed that if I shut my eyes for ANY reason while showering that I would most certainly open them to find a psychopath in front of me, wielding a butcher knife (right there in the bath tub with me, ha ha). My worst nightmare was getting soap in my eyes. It happened once or twice and I hysterically wiped at my eyes before I got "killed". This is hilarious now but I remember feeling terrified. :)
When I was little, probably 4 or 5, after I took a bath my mom would pull the plug. The sound of the water going down the drain made a sort of screaming sound. [It was an old house.] One day I asked my mom what it was and she told me that is was a ghost that lived in my drain and drank all the water. I made my mom stay in the bathroom the whole time I took a bath until I was about 8...
