I used to believe that there was an giant hole right under the bathtub, which is where all the used water would go.
i used to believe that if i stayed in the bath too long after the soap had made the water all cloudy, that jaws the man-eating shark could launch suddenly through the plughole [i'd seen the clip of him lunging out of the pool at the visitors' bus on the universal studios tour] and bite my legs off before i could even react. but i couldn't take showers because i believed that while the translucent shower curtain was blocking my view, a madman would come up and stab me with a carving knife through the curtain like in psycho. oh and i also was scared of the Deep End at swimming pools, because they always had these huge grilles underwater and i just knew jaws was kept behind them too like in james bond. basically i believed anything i saw on tv at night. i even believed "terry and june" was hilariously funny, because i could hear all the other people watching it laughing so loud.
At a friend's party when i was really young, his father played us some humpback whale songs - very creepy to a youngster! I said some emboldening thing like "ah, who's afraid of a whale!" the father said, "I am. they can come through the tap into your bathtub!" How I cried!
When I was little I lived in this house and in the bathroom there was a hole in the shower where somebody had removed the shower head. Well, I had just watched Freddy Kruegur and my older sisters told me that he was going to come through the hole and get me. I was scared to death to be in the bathroom by myself and somebody had to always sit with me while I was in there.
I was always a fraidy cat when i was little but the thing that i was most afraid of was the bathroom i didnt understand that the pluming was different from my idea i alway thought if you went to the bathroom and flushed it would come up in the bath tub
In my downstairs bathroom, there is a boiler with a red light and a green light. Next to the red light were the words "Power On" and next to the green light it said "Demand". I (not being able to spell very good at that age) thought that "demand" said "demon". I thought that when the green light was on the Demon was coming t get me and whenever I used the toilet I used to force it all out quickly and run before the green light came on and the Demon would come and get me. I often ran from the bathroom with my pants still down! *blush*
when i was little, i believed that every night when i went to go to the bathroom before bed, there were kidnappers/robbers/murderers outside the window. every night, i would make weird deals with them in my head ("please don't kill me till after i wash my hands") then after i did that i would run like hell to bed.
I used to believe there was monster (he looked rather like a Yowie) living in the plumbing who would suck out all the water when you pulled the plug, that's why there were all those slurping noises. My sister told me if you sat in the bath while it was draining, he would eat you too!!
I was so scared from the movie IT, I thought a clown would come of of the drain when I was in the shower. So after hearing a little more about the movie from my dad, I found out that the clown was actually some kind of an alien spider. So i would spray bug spray on the drain to keep it away. I was about 11
I used to believe that when i took a bath there was whales and sharks below me, because our bathroom was over the ocean so we could get water. I was always afraidto take a long bath or shower because i was afriad they'd come up and try to get me!
For years I wouldn't use the bathroom in a public place and someone had to be in the room when i took my bath (one of my older sisters sat on the toilet) and i left the door open when i would go to the bathroom..all because i was afraid Candyman would get me
when i was really small (2) i used to think that if i stepped on red towels that the floor would collapse and that i would fall under the floor and be trapped there forever...
i also used to be afraid of melting cheese...
When I was little I always made sure I got out the bath befor I pulled the plug, because I thought you could get sucked down it and into the drain and no one would find you.... but even worse was the thought I might get stuck in the plug and never get out!!!
When I was in grade school I never wanted to use the school bathroom stall with an air vent above it. I thought the janitor hid up there and watched me while I peed
I used to believe that under the bathtub drain were little green army men toys that made the sewers work, and I was afraid that one day they would jump out of the drain and talk to me.
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).
When I was 8 I thought a spider lived in the toilet and would bite me if I sat on it.
i believed that when you finished taking a shower and you opened the shower curtain a velociraptor would be right there to eat you.
When I was about 3-5 I thought I could shave like my dad and I ended up cutting myself all over.
I used to believe there was a "toilet monster" that would suck me down the toilet if I sat on the toilet while flushing it, even with a toilet seat. So I made sure to get off the toilet before I flush it, and when I accidently flushed it before getting off, I would run and start screaming!
