Whenever I would use a sink or any form of running water I always had to keep a body part or something else in the stream. I had this belief that there was a little man who lived under our house (and every other house) and he looked at all the water passing out of your house through a transparent pipe. He could always tell if the water was being used for something or if it was just going down the drain untouched.
I always believed that if he ever caught you wasting water something bad would happen and that he would be ok withunused water for a moment or two when you first turn on the tap or before you turn it off, but nothing more was allowed.
I still don't know what would happen if he caught you, but i never wanted to find out.
I watched Alfred Hitchcock episodes the old black and white ones when I was young about 6 or 7. I watched one where he talked about water torture where a person was strapped in a chair and water was let drip on his head until a hole ws eroded in the persons head. I used to think that standing under a running shower would erode my body and I would check for dents after every shower
I used to think that conditioner was to wash the shapoo out
When I was little, whenever I went to the bathroom at my grandma's house, I always thought there was a dead person in the tub. Every now and then I still check the bathtub before doing my business!
I was convinced that if I was still in the bath when the water finished going down the plughole, that a monster called the 'squirly worm' would come up through the drain and get me
I still get a bit stressed out about it
when i was like 5 i used to think every time i went into the bathroom someone was watching me through tiny cameras so i used to cover up anything that looked serspisouse just in case!
i used to blieve that when you took a buble bath aligators and spiders wood come out of the drain [how they wood fit out of it iouno lOl] and then when you drained the water they wood go down with the water
when i was younger my sister told me that if i put my head under the fauset in the bathtub lobsters wood come out and stick in my hair...and i believed her for the longest time
I used to believe that a baby shower was a tiny bathtub with a showerhead just for the baby.
I used to believe that if you turned a bathtub to maximum temperture it would turn all the water into fire and burn you, and if you took it to mininum tempurture it would turn all the water into ice and turn you into "Frozen Nude sitting in tub" I was horrified to have any one besides mum adjust the tempeture
When I was young I used to think that everytime I went to the bathroom at night there was a little girl sitting in the bathtub. So every time I used the bathroom at night I would pull back the shower curtains to make sure no-one was there. I am now 19 and I still do that at night. (Pretty Pathetic Huh?)
When I was nine I watched part of a movie on TV where some poltergeist reached up through a puddle of oil on a garage floor and pulled the little girl of the movie through to him. After that, I was convinced that he was real and could do the same thing in the bathtub, because our drain was slow and there was always a small pool of water at the bottom. I got so scared that I eventually started standing on washclothes in the shower, believing they would act as a barrier and protect me from the poltergeist.
when I was young I used to believe that I had to use toilet paper when I finished having a shower!!
I used to think that Luke-Warm water had somthing to do with Luke Skywalker
My mom used to talk about "luke-warm water"--you know, medium temperature water--for my bath or something and I thought she was saying "luke-warmed"--warmed by a little guy named luke who lived inside the tub. I actually believed this until I was 8 and I asked my mom what she meant.
When I was young I used to believe that when you take a shower the water was recycled, so I did'nt dare pee in it because I didn't want to wash or drink pee!
After watching "It" by Stephen King for the first time, I refused to step on a bathroom drain because I was afraid that a clown would come up from the drain below and attach me. To this day, i still won't stand on drains because it makes me uncomfortable even though I know that there is no clown down there now.
when i was little, i used to think that the water coming out of your faucet was comin from the ocean, and if u ran the water too long, then little fishies and stuff would come out, and if your bathtub was clogged, i thought that meant a shark was trying to come through.
I used to believe that the middle parts of jacuzzis were filled with whirring blades and that's why the water was so bubbly. Whenever I wanted to get from one side to the other, I would scoot around the edge. I was really worried for my dad that he would get his legs cut off as he always went across the middle.
I used to believe that a large snake lived in the bathtub drain. When the tub was drained after a bath, you could see its tounge as the water was going down. The snake was not particularly scary nor friendly, it was just doing its job, drinking the water after every bath.
