My Scottish Grandfather would tell me after a bath that if I didn't dry off rapidly, that any part of my body that the water would dry on would fall off. I still dry myself as fast as possible to this day... 37 years later
When i was little, around 5 or 6 one of my two older sisters waited in the shower until i went pee, then jumped out and scared me. This made me realise just how easy it would be for someone to hide in there. I still have a habit of opening the shower curtain, or at least looking behind it before i go to the washroom. I'm 17
When i was little i watched this movie and this hand cam out of the drains and would kill people so whenever i went to the bathorom i would leave the door open and once i flushed i would run with my pants still down till i was safely with my mom, now i am 16 and i still run ( with my pants up) when
Starting when I was six, I believed that if I didn't get to the sinks by the time the toilet was done flushing something really bad would happen to me(I dont' know what, just something). I also believed that if I left a book or magazine in front of the toilet a trapdoor would open and that my book or magazine would drop through. I don't know where this came from, but I believed it until I was 10.
I believed you could dry your hands with hot water, until i got a chance to try it.
I was around five when I decided to weigh myself on my mom's scale. Before I did so, I closly examined the numbers on it. Seeing that the highest the numbers went was 250 I assumed that that was how much my house weighed(it was the biggest thing I knew of at the time)and asked my mom if that was true. She was applying makeup and obviously wasn't paying attention when she replied, "Yes".
By the time I was 10, I had thought it over and it made no sense. I mean, my house was two stories high and it had all of this heavy furniture in it. Finally, I decided to ask my mom for the truth and she denyed that she had ever said it. Lol. She still won't answer.
My mom told me when I was little that if she pulled the plug in the bathtub that I would go down the drain with the water. (She did this to get me out of the bath). I remember believing this and everytime she was about to pull the plug I jumped out as quick as I could!
i used to believe that when the water goes down a sink & a little ring of silver appears in the plug hole (i now understand it's a reflection!!) that if you were quick enough you could grab it & collect them & be rich!! (i'm still poor!?)
in between the ages of 6-10, I always had to check the shower before going to the bathroom because I thought people pulled the curtains up to hide behind them.
When I was about 5 years old, I saw an old movie called "Killer Slugs" about these slugs that would painfully murder you when you touched them. There was one scene where the killer slugs made their way up the bathtub drain of an unsuspecting female bather. After that, the thought of taking bubble baths (obstructing my view of the bathtub drain) horrified me. I still have a hard time taking bubble baths... who knows what might be on its way up that drain!
When I was little and I sat on the toilet I always thought that Snap, Krackle and Pop(the rice krispy guys) were in the shower, so I would always hurry out of the bathroom before they peeked out at me.
After watching just one part of a movie when I was about five where these cheap, scary troll thing-looking dolls come out of a vent in a bathroom, I would always open the door before I flushed when I went to the bathroom. Quicker when getting away.....
I always check the shower if I go to the bathroom during the night because you KNOW those two little girls from the Shining are going to pop out and go "Come play with me Katey...." I saw that movie when I was twelve and I thought, oh, that would be cool, I'd play with them, up until the part when I saw them all dead! I freaked out. I am now 14.
Whenever I go to the bathroom in somebody else's house, and they have a shower with the curtain drawn, I always check behind it to make sure nobodys behind there! This is weird because I've never gone to to the bathroom and had someone be behing there.
I heard of a legend of a woman covered in blood coming out of a puddle of water if you were near and kill you if you disrespected your parents. I was sort of the obnoxious child, and our shower mat covered the drain so as I took showers there would always be a puddle. I worried that this woman would come out of the puddle and get me, so I'd always glance at the toilet water every few seconds from behind the shower curtain, and I'd hurry up in showers always thinking to myself, "I love my parents we're best friends!" thinking she can hear my thoughts and she'd believe me.
I believed that if I was sitting on the toilet while it flushed it would suck me down and I would have to live in the sewer.
I had all these little plastic frogs that I would play with in the bathtub, and sometimes I would put them in their round pink boat and push them around the tub. 7 years later in sex ed I learned what a diaphragm looked like...thanks mom!
When I was a child and when my mom would give me a bath, to get me to keep my head back so that she could wash my hair, she would tell me "talk to Mr Ceiling" i really thought there was a man that lived in our ceiling!!!
I used to think that if I pulled the plug out of the bathtub while I was still in the tub I would be sucked down the drain with all the water. If either of my parents came into the bathroom and pulled the plug, I would jump out screaming.
When i was little i thought the those bubbles that you see in the drain in your shower were fishes and the sea went all the way to my shower.
