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...
After Sept 11 (i was in 4th grade at the time) i couldnt use the bathroom for a week because i was positive that osama bin laden was living in my bathroom sink cabinet and would kill me if he saw me because i was american.
i used to believe that showers were only for men then my mum told me the truth!
i thought that taking a shower was a sexual thing that only adults were allowed to do.
My cousin once made me believe that there was a man living in the drains. For over a year, I couldn't take a bath or brush my teeth without someone in the bathroom with me. I remember one day I waited around all day crying for my mom to come home before I could pee.
I used to belive that if u looked into a mirror while you were doing your "dirty work" your mirror-self would turn into your "dirty work"
When I was a kid, I use to believe, when I put salt in my bath water I will turn into a mermaid.
When I was younger, I used to like to play & splash around in the tub and get water all over the place. My grandma used to tell me that if I got water on the side of the tub that it would flip over & I'd be stuck under the tub forever.
There was this old episode of Kate and Ally where Chip overflowed the toilet and tried to remedy the situation with a plunger. For some weird reason I developed a totally irrational fear of plungers and would make my mom or grandmother remove the plunger from beside the toilet before I would turn my back on it and sit on the toilet.
To this day, I still check the shower to see id theres a burglar in hiding to get me while im doing my business
At 3 or 4 years old, I believed that the walls of your house were hollow and served as massive water reservoirs. The taps literally opened a hole in the wall and let all the water just fall out. This strange belief system also held that if you forgot to turn the tap off, your house would flood, with the whole street following soon after, finally resulting in a Biblical Deluge which would basically destroy the world. A panicky "forgot which way to turn the tap off" incident, combined with a number of nightmares about small leaks in the walls of our home, saw me become the "Guardian of the Taps" at my kindergarten. When time came to wash up before our snack, I would man the sink and ensure the safety of our planet.
I used to believe that elves lived inside my faucet and that they used water bottles to make the water come out. When one water bottle was used up the elves would make a hole in the bottom of the bottle and pour another one in so that the water would not stop. Eventually they would have several dozen water bottles stacked up on each other.
