When i was about 8, whenever i took a bath I always though a shark or pirana would come out of the drain! I was so scared since i could never see the drain when i used the bubbles, i laugh about that still.
Having watched my mother test the temperature of the water by running her fingers under the hot tap, I used to believe that was how the water was actually heated, and spent quite some time wondering why my fingers wouldn't heat the water up.
When I was little, after my bath, I would hide under my towel in the belief that my mum wouldn't be able to see me. She added to my belief by calling my name until I popped out, when she feigned mock surprise. This carried until I was at least seven, and she still teases me mercilessy...
When I was small I hated being left alone, and when it was just my dad and I in the house, I would sit outside the (louvred) bathroom door while he was on the toilet, and he would gripe, "would you go away and let me poop in peace!" and so for years I thought the bathroom was called "peace". :-)
When i was about five i thought that i would get sucked down the drain, after watching an eisode of Rugrats
I used to believe that brown paper towels or toilet paper was "whole grain". I walked into a bathroom one day and said to nobody in particular (out loud, of course), "Wow! Whole-grain toilet paper! How fancy!"
I use to belive as a child that the water that went into the drains got cleaned up and put back into the water suply of the house with the exption of tolet water witch is why you only went to the bathroom in the tolet because you did not want to drink pee.
you know when you let your water out of the bathtub and that little water tornado starts i used to think he was my friend and i would try and catch him and save him from the sharks in the drain.so i would cry after every bath because i thought he would never come back
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.....
