When we were younger, my brother had me convinced that if you took a bath with the lights turned off you would get electrocuted.
I used to think that baby showers were just that-the ladies would gather around the new baby and stand it up in the shower for a bath.
When I was young I believed that the drain in the back of the sink was to give the sink a drink. Every time that I brushed my teeth, I had to pour some water in the drain so that the sink wouldn't be thirsty.
I thought "toilet water" was used to put into the toilet to make it smell better. Therefore, I put all "toilet water" I could find into the toilet!...That's what the bottle said!
for some reason I had to hold my breath when I would walk past the one bathroom at my house. It didn't smell or anything. I just didn't like that bathroom.
when i was little, i believed that every night when i went to go to the bathroom before bed, there were kidnappers/robbers/murderers outside the window. every night, i would make weird deals with them in my head ("please don't kill me till after i wash my hands") then after i did that i would run like hell to bed.
when i was younger i thought that the restroom was a place where people went to lay down and rest. also, i belived that kindergarten was a garden for people to plant flowers and drink tea
I believed for some reason that my mother's box of Calgon Bouquet bath salts was evil or dangerous or something, and when very young would cower from it, screaming, "Bookon Ookay! Bookon Ookay!!"
When I was young I used to try to drink the water in the bath tub and my mom told me it was made of smushed up flies. I have been waiting for a fly to come out of the faucet ever since... (I am 33)
when i was small, i used to think that the popular boys in my class had hidden cameras in the bathrooms of every girl to see which ones were the prettiest ones. That's why i had to undress very "sexily". Imagine a nine year old doing that...
I'm 17 now and, thankfully, have slightly more sense now. When I was 3, I would stay at my grandma's house quite often. She hated bugs and would flush them down the toilet when she found them. One day, I was misbehaving quite badly and Grandma told me she was going to flush me down the toilet like she had done to a cricket earlier that day. This traumatized me and a few weeks later, my parents were trying to wash my hair in the kitchen sink, but couldn't figure out why I would scream and slap at them when I saw the drain. After my grandmother heard about this, she confessed what she had said to me on that terrifying day at her house.
In my downstairs bathroom, there is a boiler with a red light and a green light. Next to the red light were the words "Power On" and next to the green light it said "Demand". I (not being able to spell very good at that age) thought that "demand" said "demon". I thought that when the green light was on the Demon was coming t get me and whenever I used the toilet I used to force it all out quickly and run before the green light came on and the Demon would come and get me. I often ran from the bathroom with my pants still down! *blush*
I used to think that only girls could take baths, and only boys could take showers, because I only ever saw my mother in the bathtub and my dad only took showers. I got really freaked out one day when my sister said she was going to take a shower; I thought she was breaking the law.
ok, after taking a bath, when you take the drain plug out, it makes that wierd noise, right? so my little sister and I were sure it was a crocodile that lived under our bath. i'm not sure why, i doesn't even sound like a crocodile, but it never really bothered us.
Until my adolescent years, I believed that if you went into the shower on one side of the curtain, you had to leave on the same side. If you left the shower on the other side, you would be in another evil dimension.
When I was little I use to believe that the middle part where the water comes out from on the shower head was an eye looking at my naked body. So I use to wear shorts in the shower so the eye couldnt see my private parts.
Till this day I still wear shorts in the shower. I'm 34.
Like some children, I used to believe that I would get sucked down the drain in the tub. Do you want to know why I thought that? My sisters, who are 10 and 12 years older than me, hid in closets and used to yell "Help me! Help me! I slipped down the drain!" There I was, running to every drain in every sink and tub in our house, crying "I'll save you! I'll save you!" I should send them the bill for all the therapy I've received over the years!
I used to think that when I flushed the toilet, I had to get out of the bathroom before it finished flushing, or bad guys could come out of it and chase me.
I used to beleive there was this creepy man hiding behind the bathroom door, just ready to kill me when I opened it. So, in the middle of the night, being my spunky self, slowly opened the door and then quickly slammed it to the back, to find out nothing was there. I used to do it every time, thinking he somehow escaped everytime.
I used to beleive if I went to the bathroom at night and went in without turning the lights on the second I got in, this freaky chinese dragon would come and take me away... I was an odd child..
