when i was younger i used to always over fill the bath and sink, often flooding the bathroom. so my mum told me that there was a mouse that lived in the over flow hole, and if i over filled the bath/sink i would drown the mouse. i believed her until i was about 11, when her and my sister were reminiscing, and laughing about the fact i belived her. if i hadnt caught them, i probably would still believe them to this day!
the other stupid idea that was put into my head when i was little, was that i thought that when i flushed the toilet, something could come out of it and get me, but only when i flushed at night. my way of escaping this was to put the toilet lid down, hold the pully light switch at the same time as the flushing handle, flush, run out of the bathroom as fast as i could until i ran out of light switch cord and pull it to turn it off at the last minute! if anything it kept me fit.
This is actually about my bathtub. When I was 3-7 years old, we had a round lever on our wall that had "wolverine" writen on it because that was its companies name. It had 2 bolts on the sides of it that looked like eyes, with the slit in them to make it look like it was almost closed but sleeping, and a lever in the middle that you pulled down to drain the water. Well I always thought that there was a monster in our wall called wolverine and if the water got too high and reached him, he would wake up, his eyes would open (the bolts), and he would jump out and eat me. So for years I tried not to touch him a at all except to drain the water, which I thought he drank.
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.
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
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!?
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.
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!
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.
When we were younger, my brother had me convinced that if you took a bath with the lights turned off you would get electrocuted.
When I was little I used to wear my underwear in the bathtub because I thought I'd get sucked down the drain......Not that underwear would even help me!
After watching just one part of a movie when I was about five where these cheap, scary troll thing-looking dolls come out of a vent in a bathroom, I would always open the door before I flushed when I went to the bathroom. Quicker when getting away.....
I watched Alfred Hitchcock episodes the old black and white ones when I was young about 6 or 7. I watched one where he talked about water torture where a person was strapped in a chair and water was let drip on his head until a hole ws eroded in the persons head. I used to think that standing under a running shower would erode my body and I would check for dents after every shower
My mom used to tell me that whenever part of your body itched, that was Gods sign that you needed to take a bath.
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.
my mum always told me the water that comes out of the bathroom tap has spiders wee in it. To this day i wont drink from it!
When I was around 4, I was taking a bath. My dad pulled the drain plug and while I started watching the water swirl around the drain my dad casually told me to watch out that I don't get sucked down the drain. My dad still laughs when he recalls how I looked like a cat, all sprawled out, clawing my way out of the tub, onto the floor and out the door. Wet and naked I ran to my mom and explained to her what happened and she and my dad had a conversation about what not to say to a four year old. I am still afraid of drains. Thanks Dad.
Not me, but my cousin used to think wrinkle cream gave you wrinkles.
There was a brand of shampoo called Kids Only, so I thought that if my mum tried to use it, she physically wouldn't be able to.
When I was a nipper, I used to believe that there was a
Drain Draggon who lived in my Bath. When the water went down
the overflow and made that gurggle noise, I used to think that it
was the drain monster drinking my bath water.
When I get in the shower and the water is cold, I change the temperature as quickly as possible. Why? Becasue i've always been scared of cold shower water. Not cold sink water, just shower water. For some unknown reason, I feel like there are dead bodies soaking in the cold water, but not the warm water.
