When me and my sister were kids, my dad used to sing us that song by Cream called "A Mother's Lament", and if you've heard it, you know it's a rather sad song, in a funny way, about a mother who turns her back on the tub for just a second so that she could get the soap, only to turn back around and find that her baby was so tiny, he was sucked down the plug.

Needless to say, we were afraid of going down the "pluggole".

When I was six, my friend told me that her aunt got her intestines sucked out by sitting on a bath tub drain while it was draining.

I thought of sitting on the drain to see if it was real; i chickened out.

I took the fear of getting sucked down the plughole to the extreme . . . My father convinced me that I would be sucked down the plughole when I was about 3 years old. Afterwards, I wouldn't sit down in the bathtub for a year . . . I was a very gullible child and my mother threatened to kill my father after the incident.

When I was like 2/3 my sister and I used to go into the bathroom while my mum was having a bath and sit and talk to her. I remember her telling us that if the plug was pulled out she would go down the plughole.
Well ofcourse she pulled out the plug and slowly slid deeper into the bath; my sister and I went hysterical screaming and trying to hold her up screaming we loved her and crying.
My mother used to stop when we were really upset, she said it was to test how much we loved her. I remember being really really upset, scared and traumatised thinking the plug-hole was going to take my mummy away.
I was always scared of the plug hole for a long while after that.

I used to belive a monster lived down the plughole in the bath and when you pulled the plug out he would grab you and drag you down the plughole and eat you so i'd jump out of the bath as quickly as possible or make someone else pull out the plug later....

I used to believe that if someone pulled the plug on the drain while I was in the bath, I would go down it. So everytime I was done taking a bath I would hop out really quickly. If my mother pulled the plug on the drain while I was in it, I would start crying and screaming for her to get me out. I really thought that my body would get sucked down that little hole just like the water, and I would be gone forever.

Being sucked down the bathtub... My Grandmother once told me when I was 4 or 5 that if I didn't finish all the food on my plate I would end up so thin I'd get sucked down the bathtub hole when someone pulled the plug. It didn't actually make me finish my food but I ended up being really scared of going down with the gurgling water at the end of my bath!

I had a morbid fear of being sucked down the plug-hole and would climb out of the bath tub with great haste after taking out the plug.

Having seen Laurel and Hardy go down the plughole in the bath with the water I always had to jump out of the bath before plulling the plug out in case I suffered the same fate.
