There used to be a big conch shell in my bathroom. I would listen to the "ocean" all the time. I would also talk into it believing I was talking to the sea life. I thought I could tell sharks not to hurt people, dolphins to swim closer to beach so I could see them better or to stay away from tuna nets, mermaids that I wouldn't hurt them if they said hi one day, and who knows what other ridiculous things I thought would help them!

I was afraid of the toilet flushing when I was little. I would use the toilet, wash my hands, and then flush -- and sprint out of the room immediately. I thought if you stayed in the bathroom until the end of the flush a witch came up and grabbed you, and I have NO idea where this belief came from!

I believed that there was *something* that lived below all toilets that would reach up and pull you down when you flushed. For years I simply never flushed the toilet, or I would flush and run for my life!!

I personally used to believe that if I yelled into the sink loudly enough, my message would echo and travel through the pipes, into the other bathroom's sink exit, or shower exit and that they would hear me talking to them... They never did.

when i was 3-to about 8 or 9 years old i thought that the little hole at the top of the sink (the thing that drains it if it overflows)would go to africa for the people that didnt have water so i would be in the bathroom for a while cupping water in my hand for the poor.

When I was 6 years old, I used to watch ''Flushed Away'' and I used to believe that when I flush the toilet, a mouse, dressed like a real person, would come out the flushing button.

I believed that the water droplets in the strainer-like shower drain after my shower were the eyes of little drain creatures that would blink and eventually disappear when the water was all gone .

When I was little and living in my grandmother's house, the bathroom was right above the dark and mysterious laundry/storage room. I thought that when I flushed the toilet it woke up the monsters down there and I only had until the water stopped running to get out of the bathroom before the monsters reached it. Needless to say, I didn't wash my hands very well.

I used to believe there was a guy living under our sink holding a bucket that he would use to catch all our water that went down the drain.

I used to think that a toilet was called a potty, and I also thought a tub was called a bath, rather than those words referring to the actions. My parents always seemed to call them by those names, and they would only say "toilet" or "tub" if they were angry.

Several years ago, my dad got a new motorized toothbrush, and it had lots of settings, the names of which showed up on a screen. One of the settings was "massage," but I misread it as "message." So I thought the motor and sound pattern was hiding a hidden message.

Also, when I finally discovered that it said "massage," I misinterpreted that. I didn't know that the massage was for your gums, so my dad was really mad at me when he saw me rubbing my back with his toothbrush!

Watching "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" when I was 5 was one of the worst mistakes I ever made. Since then, and up until a few years ago, I thought that if I didn't flush the toilet and get out fast enough, the Basilisk would come out of our toilet and eat me. Which is stupid really, because the Basilisk in Harry Potter lived in the water mains, not sewage pipes. And another dumb thing- there are no snakes here in New Zealand anyway!

I used to believe that recycled toilet paper was actually used toilet paper that had been recycled. It didn't help that the one time I saw a roll it was speckled and not all white.

When I was 6 and was taking a shower, I used to believe that the yellow bag hanging was for me to use. My mom came to check on me and found me peeing in her bag. She got a good laugh.

When I was small I used to see the "TOLET" sign and think people were renting out toilets for desperate customers.

You see that overflow hole in bathroom sinks? I thought it was the mouth and would feed it clay every day otherwise the sink and the rats living in the hole would starve
