I was afraid that Jaws would come out of the drain, so I would hop away when I pulled the plug.
When I was really dirty and the bath water got dark, I thought that there were little sharks and eels in the bathtub... so I would avoid putting my hands down in the tub.
how many us believed you would go down the drain with the bath water? I did!
when i was at my nans house when i was about 4 or 5, i would have a bath, then when my nan wrapped me in a towel and pulled out the plug i'd shout, 'NOOO!' and run down the stairs as fast as i could. It's because the sucking sound of my nans plughole would scare me so much, it sounded like a monster in the drains.
do you remember Aladdin by disney?
if so, do you remember the evil guy when he was pretending to be the old old man in the celler to trick aladdin?
well i was So so scared of him and until i was about 8 or 9 or maybe even 10, i thought that old man lived in the cupboard, so i would always run in and out of the bathroom as if he was going to open the cupboard to grab me.. -shiver- i still think that guys is scary tho.. =D lol
I used to believe that sharks swam up the plug hole when the plug was pulled outand would eat you if you did not get out of the bath before all the water went down the plug hole. It certainly made me jump out!!
When I was really little, about 2-5 I didn't like taking baths because I thought I was going to go down the drain. If my mom pulled the drain I'd jump out quickly because I didn't want to get sucked in.
I used to belive that when i turned on the Tap something Magical would happen like a unicorn or something like that!
i used to believe that the gurgling sound when the bathtub is draining was the "Gurgle Monster" and that it would eat me if it came out of the drain.
When i was like 8 i thought that the drain for the showers had like a hand that would come out of it when water went down it. I thought that there was a man in the drain that when the water went down it it would wet him and hed get mad and pull me in and beat me up, so i never went close enough to the drain so that he could pull me in.(ended when i was 10)
I used to believe as a kid that cockroaches used to come up out of the hole in the bath and if you didn't get out in time, they'd come up and run all over you.
I believed that if you stayed in the bathtub while the water was draining down, you would get sucked down the drain.
I used to think if I locked the door in the bathroom while using the toilet, something very terrible will happen and I will die without anyone knowing or helping because the door is locked. I didn't lock the bathroom door until I went to boarding school.
I used to believe that if I didnt get out of the tub before all the water went down the drain that I would get sucked down the drain, too. My mother told me this, I guess, because she was in a hurry and wanted me to get out of the tub.
I used to believe that in the middle of a hot tub there was a big whirlpool that would suck me in and never let me go if I crossed the hot tub. I think I got this idea from my mom telling me once not to swim in the middle of a hot tub.
I used to beleive there was this creepy man hiding behind the bathroom door, just ready to kill me when I opened it. So, in the middle of the night, being my spunky self, slowly opened the door and then quickly slammed it to the back, to find out nothing was there. I used to do it every time, thinking he somehow escaped everytime.
I used to believe whenever I went to the bathroom of my tita's house, that the lights would flicker because my knid of mental grandpa was playing tricks on me. I was going #2, so I couldn't get off! I was really scared. Then I learned it was just the power that went out. It messed up a few things, like the bathroom. Still, I never went in again. LOL!!!
When i was little, my cousin (about 4 yrs older than me) told me that if you swallowed toothpaste you would die, so whenever my mom told me to brush my teeth i would just go in the bathroom an wet my toothbrush cause i was afraid the toothpaste might slide down my throat somehow.
you know when you run a tap and look into the plughole well I used to believe that little silver ring in the was a fish eye as i thought that fish could swim up the drainpipe!
when i was little(4-5) i didn't wanna taka a shower cuz it seemed so big and i believed that it will crush me and eat me XD
when I was very little I thought a monster lived down in the pipes under the toilet. Whenever I finished I had to get out of the bathroom as quickly as I could, because when I flushed all that pee or poop down onto his head he would come out and attack me.
