Because of Hey Aranold, I thought that there was a little person and he was so poor the had to live under the toilet so I would flush my Dads money
When I was 8 I thought a spider lived in the toilet and would bite me if I sat on it.
Trough ages 4-9 i used to think that there were monster in my bathroom and if i accidentally turned on the fan when i turned on the lights it would summon them.
when i was 10 i used to believe that there was some sort of ghost or zombie or something behind the shower curtain so i always had to check behind it or open it before i used the bathroom! i still get scared sometimes!
i only indulged in sitting on our bathroom floor once to play with my bathing toys because my mom warned me to keep my eyes open for earthworms. she said they tend to crawl out of the spaces between the tiles and enter one's body through his/her holes (you know). i feared bathroom floors since then. now that i'm grown up, i dropped the fear, but i still keep off any tile, even on walls.
My step-dad made me believe that if you put a baby wipe in the toilet it would explode, and one day (i think i was 5) I accidentally dropped on in and I screamed, running to my mom with my pants all the way down. And I was at my Aunt's house so it was more humiliating.
When I was, like, 4 or something, I thought there were sleeping monsters behind the shower curtain, and when you flushed the toilet, the would wake up and get you. I'm still creeped out, and occaisionally, I'll run out of the bathroom.
When I was about four, my Mom stopped helping me take a bath so when I was done with my bath, I would just throw my towl on the floor in my perants room and my Mom would yell at me and say "Its going to grow mold!" So when I brushed my teeth, I wouldnt let my Mom put water on my toothbrush before I brushed my teeth because I was worried my mouth would grow mold : (
When I was younger, I thought the shower water was pumped from the drain back up into the shower head, so I was afraid that if I peed in the shower, it would come raining back down on me and that grossed me out. Of course, I found it wasn't true, but even still, I won't pee in the shower.
You know those scrubbing bubble commercials where the bubbles came out of the bottle and cleaned the bathtub? As a kid, I would pour that stuff in the tub and sit and wait for those bubbles to come out and clean everything.
That there was a zombie living behind the bathtub in the upstairs bathroom.
When i was little at my house,outside the bathroom was kind of a crack where the carpet and the tile met.After i went 2 the bathroom as the toilet was flushing i had to jump over the crack.If my foot touched it or i didnt make it across in time i really beleived something bad would happen.I took it really seriously and truly beleived it.My mom would always look concerned when she saw me runnin out of the bathroom(LOL).
My brother told me that a woman and her husband had drowned in our bathtub and lived beneath the bath waiting to come out and get me.
Needless to say, after that episode I was a fairly unhygienic child.
In our childhood home, the bathroom door was located directly across from the basement door. When I was 6 years old, my sister (9) told me that when I flushed the toilet a killer whale would come out and eat me, but if i didnt flush it the pee-pee monster that lived in the basement would be waiting for me at the top of the stairs to take me away. However, the pee-pee monster was scared of the light so he wouldnt come out if we laid a flashlight at the bathroom door pointing at the basement. My only hope, according to her, was to point the light at him, flush the toilet, and run away from the killer whale as fast as I could. The funny thing was...she wasn't being mean to me, she honestly believed it herself and was only attempting to protect her lil bro from the "bad things" lol
I believed, until I was about 8, that if you flushed the toilet, the ninja turtles would come out and get you, because you were messing up their sewer. If I did flush the toilet, I would hide behind the door until the water went all the way down.
I used to think that when the power goes out, the water also stops working.
when i was wee, the toilet in our old house was really loud when you flushed it. i used to think every time you flushed it, witches and crocodiles and vampires and spooky stuff like that would come out and eat you. this meant that everytime i flushed the toilet, i had to run down stairs really fast. one day i fell down the stairs after flushing the toilet, and i assumed a crocodile had tripped me up, because i hadnt ran fast enough. i believed this until i was 8.
When I was 4 I used 2 believe that there were goblins in the air vent in the bathroom. I thought I would flush real fast and get out or they would bring me down and me.
When I was about 8, I though that if someone flushed the toilet when you were in the shower, the water would turn off and never come back on. I am now 29, and my son is afraid of someone flushing the toilet when he's in the shower!
I used to believe that thing in the sink (I don't know what it's called, it's like this hole halfway up that water drains into if the sink gets too full) had an alien living in it, and if I put my hands in the sink it would pop out and eat my arms.
