I used to believe that conditioner was also called 'rinse.' I believe this is from the directions to "Apply Shampoo and Rinse" on shampoo bottles.
I was afraid of the toilet flushing when I was little. I would use the toilet, wash my hands, and then flush -- and sprint out of the room immediately. I thought if you stayed in the bathroom until the end of the flush a witch came up and grabbed you, and I have NO idea where this belief came from!
When I was kid I saw for the first time a dead man. He was an ancient men who lived near my home. For at least some years, I saw the coffin in the corridor in my home near the telephone furniture. I was very scared, when I went from my bedroom to the bathroom and opposite, I used to pass adhering to the wall, and sometimes I asked to the man let me pass.
that bathroom tap water was recycled "potty" water from the toliet.
When emptying the bath, I had to be out of the bathroom before the whirlpool started making that slurping noise. I figured something would get me if I lingered, so I raced to dry myself and escape.
I could buy some time by splashing the water to break up the whirlpool temporarily.
When we were little I told my sister that if you pulled the plug out of the drain in the bathtub and you were still in there you would go down too. Then I would pull the plug to hear her scream!
Once when I was about 5 I had to pee but my dad was in the shower. My mum let me in the bathroom to use the toilet, but warned me not to flush (because that would affect the temp of the shower) That led to me believing that the pipes in the house were connected so that if you flushed the toilet while someone was in the shower, then toilet water would rain down on them!
I was afraid to have the shower curtain closed. I swore that someone was behind there ready to jump out and kill or hurt Me. I still pull the curtain back before I can use the bathroom..even just to brush my teeth in the bathroom.
Ever since I was little, I would always look over my shoulder coming from the bathroom because I didn't kow if someone was behind me. I would make to sure to get to my bedroom as fast as I could. I would also open & close the door to my bedroom just enough so that I would be the only person to be able to fit in my room. I am 18 and sometimes I still feel that thing were you know someone is looking at you. Very scary....
When I was young, I was convinced that if I didn't get downstairs again before the toilet stopped flushing, something terrible would happen. It did a couple of times when I slipped and fell downstairs!
As a child, my mum used to give me a bath before bedtime, and I would try to stay in there as long as possible, even after mum had pulled the plug out and the water had started to drain away, all so that I could stay up that little bit later. Well, mum decided that to get me out of the bath quicker, it would be a good idea to tell me that once the plug had been pulled out of the bath, crocodiles would escape out of the plughole and eat me up if I was still in the bath! To this day, I cannot stay in a bath once the plug has been pulled out! (Not that I believe her anymore, but I think psychologically the fear of the plughole has stayed with me!!).
I used to think that the curved pipe under the sink led directly back up to the faucet, so I wouldn't use water to brush my teeth.
After watching the movie, 'The Blob'. I thought whenever you went to the bathroom or washed your hands, the blob would suck you down the drain and eat you.
I used to believe that water from the drain in the bathtub all went to China. I've subsequentialy installed that belief in my own son and only today considered whether Chinese parents tell their children that water from the bathtub all flows to America.... hehehe
I used to think that when I was in the bath I shark lived under the bath and that ig might come up and bite me
I used to think that with dry hair shampoo was used on dry hair (not wet) and was useful if you needed to wash your hair being miles away from a tap.
I used to believe that there was a monster in the tub drain and if it caught me it would suck me down into the drain.
ok, after taking a bath, when you take the drain plug out, it makes that wierd noise, right? so my little sister and I were sure it was a crocodile that lived under our bath. i'm not sure why, i doesn't even sound like a crocodile, but it never really bothered us.
When I was young I used to try to drink the water in the bath tub and my mom told me it was made of smushed up flies. I have been waiting for a fly to come out of the faucet ever since... (I am 33)
I used to think that there was an octopus living underneath my bathtub and if I touched the drain, it would come up and drag me down with it.
