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?
my son used to love the bathtub when he was younger and the only way to get him to get out of the tub was to tell him the water wanted to go home to its mommy.
That, if I took a shower and closed my eyes that someone might kill me or eat me. I still sorta believe, that might happen.
You know, when you're little, you believe in monsters under thhe bed and all that. Not me. I believed that there was a ghost that looked exactly like Homer Simpson in my bathroom. I was always in and out really quickly, so it didn't 'get me'.
i used to believe that if you pulled the plug out of the bath before you got out you would be sucked throught the drain by your toes. this was because all the water was sucked away and there was a whirlpool just above the plug
i used to beleive that if you stood in the bath while the water was draining that you would be sucked down the plughole :s
My sister used to believe that Freddie Cruger would come up the toilet and scratch her bum and she had to call mum every time she went!!
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.
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.
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!!
When I was little, my brother once told me that if you didn't shut the lid to the toilet when you flushed it, and if there wasn't a ceiling, then some of the water would go all the way to outer space. I imagined that a small amount of water (not enough to see) would be shot into the air when you flushed it, and it would then float up and up and up. I basically figured it just evaporated, which it does so I guess I wasn't that gullible...
I used to think that trolls lived in my shower drain and showered with my dirty water
My mum used to tell me that you couldn't drink water out of the tap from the bathroom as it was poisonous.
i used to believe that the water in the sink was filterd out from the water in the toilet bowl...i would never get a drink of water after flushing!
I used to believ ythat when you didn't wash your hands a toilet monster would come out of the toilet and put you in the toilet where the poop belongs
I used to believe that fluorescent strip lights were bad and scary. When I went into the bathroom I would close my eyes and switch it on. I'd have to wait for it to stop flickering before I could open my eyes otherwise something really bad would happen. I'm not sure what bad thing. I guess I was just really scared. My local town hall had huge lights I was scared of too...
when I was younger(about 3or 4), my mom read me the Chronicles of Narnia.
I used to think that if I didn't get out of the bathtub quick enough one of those evil centaur thingies
would pop out of the drain pipe
when i was little i used to think that you would have to get out of the bath when your fingers went wrinkly or your entire body would go wrinkly to.
I used to think that if you stayed in the bathtub while the water was draining that you would get sucked down.
So my mum would rip the plug out and I would scream and leap out of the bath and she'd just be laughing.
When I was little when ever I took a bath I was afraid to drain it, because I thought if I sat near it, it would suck my butt towards it and if I didn't get away from it in time, it would start sucking my intestines out.
