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.

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....

When I was aged probably three to six, i used to think that the noise when you take the plug out of the bath (that wooshing, shrieking sound as the water goes down) was the noise of ghosts and skeletons coming up the pipes to get me - I guess it let the water out, and let the ghosts in. I was terrified when my mum or dad would leave me alone in the bath and say "when you're done, just pull the plug out." I would get out of the water, kneel on the edge of the tub, yank the plug out as fast as I could and then sprint naked and screaming into my bedroom and hide until I heard all the water had gone down and the scary noise had stopped, so I could go back and get a towel.

I still really don't like that sucking, shrieking, wooshing noise when I take the plug out of the bath and try to get out of the bathroom before it ends!

When I was little, I was scared of drain holes in the bath-tub. I thought I would get sucked down them and die.

When i was younger i used to believe that if you were still standing in the bath when you took out the plug that you would get sucked down the plug hole with the water. I still make sure that im out of the bath before i take out the plug.

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 used to love taking baths as a child, and it would always take forever for my parents to get me out. Therefore, my dad made up a lie that once he began draining the water out of the tub, I would eventually be sucked in with it if I remained in the tub. He told me it had happened to my brother once before, and he ended up coming out of the sewer in our street. I cried after hearing this and for years after, I would get out of the bath and then drain it- I wasn't taking any risks.

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.
