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...
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
