i used to believe that a monster would come out of the showerhead if i closed my eyes but it couldnt hurt me if i touched something white, so i always made sure i was holding on to the tile in the tub to be safe.

I used to believe that in the middle of a hot tub there was a big whirlpool that would suck me in and never let me go if I crossed the hot tub. I think I got this idea from my mom telling me once not to swim in the middle of a hot tub.

In the bathtub there was a dried drop of paint, but I believed it was a porthole to where Peter Rabbit lived. I was always afraid the mean gardener would come through the porthole and see me naked.

My 4 yr. old daughter has a panic attack if anyone pulls the drain plug out of the drain of the bathtub while she is in it because she believes that she will go down the drain with her bathwater. I used to believe the same thing when I was little and thought it was neat that she did too!

The plumbing in our home used to have a lot of air in it so the water would sputter and spurt as it came out. This made me terrified to take a shower, every time the water would spurt I thought it was the Blob oozing through the pipe to eat me. My mom let me watch scary movies as a child, can you tell?

Up until I was in high school I had an irrational fear that a monkey's paw lived in the plumbing in our bathroom. I regularly had nightmares about it attacking me.

I used to believe that if I didnt get out of the tub before all the water went down the drain that I would get sucked down the drain, too. My mother told me this, I guess, because she was in a hurry and wanted me to get out of the tub.

This one's about my neice,Amber. When she was younger my mom's bathroom had this vent that the cover was always coming off of. It was definitely something we encouraged her to stay away from. We told her that when she was born she had a twin sister named Bamber that was really bad and fell down into the vent. For the longest time, she believed us and wouldn't even go into the bathroom.

When I was little I thought that when you flushed the toilet, Darth Vader would burst out of the shower wall. To this day (I'm 28), after using the potty, I have to fix my pants, wash my hands, and then flush. I still run like hell. My husband is very amused.

When I was 5 or so, I would take baths with my cousin. I was always so excited when we pulled the plug and that little whirlpool would happen. My cousin would tell me that it wouldn't happen unless I stood completely still and didn't breathe. Needless to say, I stood there many a time holding my breath until I was blue in the face...

As a preschooler, I was afraid that the shower would turn on in the bathroom whenever it wanted, that my mother had to tie a washcloth over the showerhead before I would take a bath. I wasn't afraid of water and knew how to swim but I was terrified of the shower. Go figure!?

i used to believe that a "washcloth shark" lived in the drain of our bathtub. if you didn't bathe regularly enough, the water would get really grimy, the shark would be able to smell you and come up through the drain. as you looked down through the soapy/dirty water, you would think you were seeing a washcloth, but it was really--the shark! this story was told to me by my babysitter, and when my parents saw how easy it was for her to get me to take baths--they told me it was true! it took years for me to stop being afraid of the washcloth shark

When I was about seven years old my sister told me that I shouldn't put soap on my skin without wetting it first. She said that she knew a girl who did this and she ended up having to wear summer clothes in the winter and winter clothes in the summer!

When I was a kid, I believed that the way to get to the attic was through the bathroom sink drain. I would stare at the sink for hours trying to figure out how this worked. I finally asked my dad. His response: Counter-clockwise, of course.

when I was takinga bath my mom used to say "be sure to close the door so the draft doesn't get in" but I thought she was saying giraffe. So I would always leave the door open so the giraffe could get in to play in the tub with me, but my mom would always close it.

When I was about 5 years old, I saw these ads on TV for Cottonelle toilet paper. Well, the woman in the ad had all these huge cotton balls around her, so I thought that the toilet paper would turn into these huge balls if I scrunched them. So I asked my mom if we had Cottonelle toilet paper, she said yes, so I went into the bathroom and wasted a whole roll trying to make big fluffy clouds like on TV!

it didn't work.. :( haha

I used to believe that that the bag hanging in the shower was to pee in.
So I peed in the bag hanging in the shower all the time. I found out later that this bag was a folding enema bag.

When I was about 5, my cousin would come over to play (she is 5 years older than I am), she would go to the bathroom and lock me out, and starting carrying on about duckies being int he bathtub. I would beg for her to let me in,and when she did, she'd say they went down the drain because they diddnt like me. I believed her for years.
