I use to believe that perana could swim up the drain of the bath tub and eat you! Or at least that is what my sister told me when I was six, right after we watched the movie "Perana". I didn't take a bath for a year(I was stuck taking showers with a plate over the drain)!
I can't remember what age it started at but when I was much younger I believed that in my bathtub there lived an octopus. It terrified me, so I hated taking baths!
After I took a shower or bath I would always leave a puddle of water all over the tiles. My mom HATED that. So she told me that if the water was left there for too long the tiles would come up and be all pointy and I though that if I stepped on it they'd poke me and hurt. I also believed that if I poured a water bottle out on the carpet upstairs it would leak through the downstairs ceiling and it would be like it was raining inside! It's a shame that never worked...
I used to believe that if i was still lingering in the bath when the plug was pulled out, my skin would get sucked of my bones and down the drain too!
I used to belive that the drain in the tub would suck yuo down if you didn't get out before the water went down. I thought that because I thought since I wasn't as heavy as the average 3 yr old, It would suck me down with the water. The drain looked like a vacume 2 me, because at the end it made that gurgling noise. I also thought there was a monster down there, like hairy one, or a shark, or as a replacement, a clown.
I used to believe that a large snake lived in the bathtub drain. When the tub was drained after a bath, you could see its tounge as the water was going down. The snake was not particularly scary nor friendly, it was just doing its job, drinking the water after every bath.
When I was young I used to believe that when you take a shower the water was recycled, so I did'nt dare pee in it because I didn't want to wash or drink pee!
When I was little I watched Stephen King's "IT". After that everytime I got in a shower I watched the drain the WHOLE time because I was afraid IT would come climing out..... I still watch the drain in fear today, and I am 18 :S
I used to believed that if I didnt sing loud enough in the shower, a monster would come and get me. I believed that until my friend came over and made fun of me cause I sang in the shower.
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 there was this shark living in the water pipes under our bath tub. and i was sure that if i turned my back on the drain, the shark would come right out of it and eat me. so, needless to say, actually getting OUT of the tub was quite difficult.
When I was about 5 I believed my sister would go down the drain if she stayed in the bathtub when the drain let out. I would plead with her to get out before the water ran out.
When I was young and impressionable, I asked my dad what that loud rumbling noise was when you took out the bath plug to drain the water. He told me that it was the bath monster growling cos he didn't like getting wet. He said that if I didn't get out of the bathroom as quick as I could, the bath monster would come out of the plughole and eat me. For years I was absolutely terrified of the bath monster and up until the age of about 13 whenever I had a bath I used to remove the plug and immediately race out of the bathroom fearing for my life.
You know, I don't think parents fully understand what effect their lies have on small children...
well wer all little shits wen wer little especially at bath time, so ma mum got the funky bath cream to make it more fun an it had a little plastic creature in it. Ma mum told me that if i didnt behave she'd put it in the water it wud grow an eat me up and i beleived her so u can tell i was an angel till i was about 7 (yes that old) till i finally realised it wasnt real!!!
When I was about four or five me and my older sister (who is two years older thatn me) believed that if you pulled the plug in the bathtub while you were taking a bath, it would pull you down with the water. So one day my sister decided to test this theory, with me as a guiny pig. She put me in the tub and moments later pulled the plug, I started crying my eyes out until all the water was gone and I realized it wasn't true.
I honestly used to believe that whenever water was draining- be it in a toilet, a shower, whatever- the swirling water could quite possibly create a tornado. When showering I had this intense fear that a tornado would form behind me, where the drain was. I believed this until I was at *least* nine and it still gives me the creeps.
As far as I knew, people took baths because they needed to be watered in order to grow, just like plants. It made absolutely perfect sense.
The only thing I couldn't figure out about it was why people kept on giving the excuse that people bathe to keep clean. Really, being watered seemed a whole lot more logical!
Up until the time I was about eight, every time I had to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night I waited as long as I possibly could before summoning up the courage. Why? I had this firmly held belief that when I went to the bathroom, behind the shower curtian (always closed at night for some reason) there lived a horrible skeleton monstor that would eat me if I flushed the toilet too loudly. So I never flushed the toiled at night (and always blamed my sister the next morning when my mom asked who did it)
Also, there was a family of gnomes that would eat my toes if I didn't have them on the side of the tub while going to the bathroom. I still keep my feet up when I'm in that bathroom.....
When i was little i used to believe iif you pooped in a port-a-potty (portable restroom) a zombie mummy would come up and try to eat you!!! i still don't like port-a potties, i don't like'em at all...
When I was younger,I used to believe that people ran in place while they took a shower. I guess it was the sound of the water hitting the ground or something...I really don't know. When I was tired I would take a bath because I didn't want to run for so long.
