I used to think that if you went too near, you would get sucked down the plughole in the bath and come out of the tap somewhere else. Whenever the bath was draining I stayed well back!

A great method of transport

When I was very young, my father used to sing me a little song while he bathed me. It went "my baby has gone down the plughole, my baby has gone down the drain. My baby has gone down the plughole, I'll never see baby again!" he used to sing it in a very sad voice. I believed that if I didn't cling on to the side of the bath I would go down the plughole and have to live with all the other babies who'd suffered the same fate. I was too small to hold on to the bath and I used to scream and scream at the mention of having a bath not because I didn't want to live in the drain's with the other babies but because I didn't want to make my father sad!

I must have only been about 3 or 4 but there was a song that my mum used to sing to me about a baby that went down a plughole because it was really thin. Well...people in my family always used to comment on how thin they thought i was so whenever my mum or dad used to put me in the bath, I was terified that I would get sucked down too. As soon as they pulled out the plug and I heard that sucking noise it makes, I would get hysterical because no-one could pull me out quick enough. It still freaks me out to this day. lol

I used to think that you would get sucked down the plughole after having a bath and would be carried away to a poo factory with the rest of the waste water from the bathroom.

I used to think that if I stayed in the bath while the water was being drained away, it would suck me down the plughole. My mum used to ask me how i would fit down such a small hole, but I knew that "they" (the drain people) had powers you coudln't even imagine....

When very small I used to love baths so much that I'd never want to get out. This annoyed my parents so they invented a monster called Tommy Splodger who lived down the plughole and would come and eat me if I stayed in the bath too long. They told me the gurgling of the water going down the plughole was the noise Tommy made. I became very afraid of baths.
