My mother took me to see the 3D Jaws movie when I was 2 (?) and I refused to keep my glasses on. She, apparently ready for anything, took a rubber band, a small pair of scissors and a mini stapler out of her purse. She cut off the arms to my 3D glasses and snipped the rubber band in two. Then she stapled the new 'arms' onto the frames of the glasses and sat me down again.

For the longest time, even though we had a septic tank then, I was convinced Jaws lived in the drain of our tub and was waiting to spring out and get me everytime I let the water out. For a long while I got my mom to pull the plug after I was safely down the hall (my logic dictated Jaws only wanted me, not anyone else). She finally got fed up with this arrangement and started making me pull it myself. I would stand there, huddled in a towel and sob, begging her not to make me do this horrible thing. I would literally stand as far away from the tub as I could get, facing the open door and FLY out of the bathroom, all the while pulling the chain attached to the plug and usually screaming my head off.

When we were kids my Mom told us that we were not supposed to drink the water from the tub, and we thought she meant that we could not drink the water from the tub faucet because it was bad for you. So for the longest time I thought the water that came out of the faucet was only to bath in not to drink.

My dad had a hard time getting my sister and I out of the bathtub when we were little, so he would tell us that if he pulled the plug from the drain we would go down the drain with the water!! We believed him

When I was younger, I believed that beavers lived in the air vents, so when I would go to the bathroom, I would close the air vents. Sometimes, I would leave the air vents open and talk to them while I were on the toilet.

When I was little, I thought that if I pulled the drain while I was still taking a bath, I would get sucked down with the water and have to live in the sewers, where the evil mole people would find me and eat me.

When i was little, my cousin (about 4 yrs older than me) told me that if you swallowed toothpaste you would die, so whenever my mom told me to brush my teeth i would just go in the bathroom an wet my toothbrush cause i was afraid the toothpaste might slide down my throat somehow.

I used to believe that when i took a bath there was whales and sharks below me, because our bathroom was over the ocean so we could get water. I was always afraidto take a long bath or shower because i was afriad they'd come up and try to get me!

I used to think that when I took baths, I had to get out of the tub before I could let the water out, or I would get sucked down the drain. Well one day I did an experiment with it and suck my foot in the drain and waited to see if Id get sucked out of the drain. Of course,I didnt,but my foot got stuck.lol. Go figure.

When I was a child I was convinced whenever I took a bath that Captain Hook would come out of the faucet. I would sit there at the other end of the tub and watch it, waiting for his hook to come down out of it.

i used to be so scared of the shower. We had this weird tile that looked like poeple were staring at you from behind the tile. for years I thought that I would be sucked into the world behind the tiles if I didn't entertain the people so I would do soap commercials and dance and sing in the shower.

I used to believe that stepping on our (battery operated) scales would most certainly lead to death by way of electrocution if there was even so much as one drop of water on your body. Too many safety videos at school, I guess.

I freaked out one day when my mom stepped on the scale before she finished blow-drying her hair. I thought it was a fluke that she didn't get shocked and continued to manuever my way around the bathroom very carefully for years, making sure not to touch the scales after my bath.

Ever read/seen Stephen King's 'It'? If you haven't, it's about a evil clown creature thing that kills kids and comes up through sinks, showers, toilets etc. I was deathly afraid of the washroom for about a week after seeing the movie.

I was so scared from the movie IT, I thought a clown would come of of the drain when I was in the shower. So after hearing a little more about the movie from my dad, I found out that the clown was actually some kind of an alien spider. So i would spray bug spray on the drain to keep it away. I was about 11

I used to believe that the handles of toothbrushes were made out of hippo teeth. I know this originated in Kindergarten, but I don't know how.

I used to think everything in the bathroom came to life when I wasn't looking and "stood still" when I was.
Sometimes I would turn around really fast to try and "catch them" walking around.

I used to believe whenever I went to the bathroom of my tita's house, that the lights would flicker because my knid of mental grandpa was playing tricks on me. I was going #2, so I couldn't get off! I was really scared. Then I learned it was just the power that went out. It messed up a few things, like the bathroom. Still, I never went in again. LOL!!!

I used to belive that the drain in the tub would suck yuo down if you didn't get out before the water went down. I thought that because I thought since I wasn't as heavy as the average 3 yr old, It would suck me down with the water. The drain looked like a vacume 2 me, because at the end it made that gurgling noise. I also thought there was a monster down there, like hairy one, or a shark, or as a replacement, a clown.

I don't know why, but i used to believe that, under all the bathroom drains, there was a room. And there was a bum in the room with a pot who caught all the water in the pot when any water went down the drains ...
