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.
whenever i am in the bathroom i have to open the shower curtain up just to make sure there is no one hiding inside the shower.
i used to be scared to death of the sound of the last bit of water going down thre plughole. i'd race out of the bathroom n shout loudly whilsy covering my ears to i couldnt hear it.
when i was little i used to be afraid of taking showers because i thaught a huge car wash brush would crash through the ceiling and wash me to death.
i used to believe that, if i ever stayed in the bathtub for too long, i would get stung by a bunch of bees.
I used to think that recycled toilet paper was just used paper that had been washed. My mum went mad when I tried to make my own!!!
i used to believe that if a paper towel went down the sink drain, the fire alarm would go off. i hated the fire alarm.
After watching the movies Volcano and Dante's Peak when I was WAY too young, I was afraid to take a shower or bath for a week because I used to believe lava would come out of the taps.
when i was really small i would lap up the water from the shower while bathing... and so my mum told me that any water that came from a tap and wasn't boiled was "germ-water" and would kill me eventually... i grew up believing this until i was, like, seven...! even when i'd play house i'd kill off my 'husband' by saying.. "oh he died by drinking germ-water"... thanks, mum.
