weeing & pooingShow most recent or highest rated first.
When I was very little and still in diapers, I would hear my parents talk about "potty training" and I thought it involved an actual locomotive!
When I was about 4, I used to believe that when people flushed the toilet, their pee and poop went into the sewer (as I had been told)--only I imagined that the sewers were these huge subterranean tunnels with conveyor belts running through them. I thought that the conveyor belts were loaded with all the stuff people flushed and that workers with rubber gloves stood on either side of the conveyor belt sorting everything out and picking out the best pieces of poop. I wasn't sure what qualified as the "best" pieces, but I figured that was part of the job training.
When I went to the bathroom if I had gum in my mouth I had to take it out because I believed that it would turn into poop if it was in my mouth while and I was going to the bathroom.
I used to believe urine was stored in the testicles, and that was why people on tv crossed their legs tightly when they needed the toilet
When i was younger my mum told me that the reason old ladies have fat ankles is because they don't go to toilet straight away when they need to and that the wee needs to go somewhere so it travels down to your ankles!!
I used to believe that boys had to squeeze their penises to pee. I thought this until I was probably 12 or so.
I used to believe that I could pee out of my bellybutton. I saw my brother peeing while standing up, and since I didn't have a...you know, I figured it must have to come out of the hole. So there I was, standing at the toilet, squeezing my belly button.
when I was 9 and in hospital to have my tonsils taken out, the doctor asked me if I had loose stools. I thought he said loose tools and wondered why my hadn't packed any screwdrivers for me...
I used to believe that i had to check the toilet everytime i went to the washroom just to make sure i wouldnt flush a baby, this went on for about two years until my mother noticed and asked me why i did it so i told her, i then learned about the birds and the bees, i was 4.
when i was younger i used to think that famous people never had to use the bathroom. I knew they went pee and all but i never thought they would like take a dump, that was just too gross for famous people
i used to believe that girls peed out of their vagina. when i took sex ed thats when i learned that girls have two holes in front: their pee hole and their pussy.
I used to believe that brown people had brown poop and white people had white poop.
When I was young, my mother used to ask us kids if we had done a 'BM'. It was my belief that BM stood for body manure. Horse did horse manure and cows did cow manure, so naturally we did body manure. It wasn't until, I embarassed to say, a hospital stay, that I figured it to be bowel movement.
I believed the handicap symbols on parking spaces were actually pictures of someone sitting on a toilet. So I thought that you were allowed to relieve yourself in that spot. Even though I thought this was quite odd I believed it for many years!
I certainly hope nobody finds this racially offensive. As a child, I thought that black people had pink poo.
I'd rather not get into the rationale behind that - to this day, I can't figure out why I thought that.
Because schools required the students to tell teachers where they were at all times, I grew up with the belief that in order to go to the washroom/toilet, you had to ask the teacher or parent first. This proved a problem one night when I was in bed and my parents were in the living room. I needed to GO, but my parents couldn't hear my question being asked. I gradually increased my volume until I screamed out and my parents came rushing in (I think they thought I was getting kidnapped or something) only to find me doing the bathroom dance.
I was a funny kid. xD
Growing up as a child I was unaware of the fact that men peed standing up. It wasn't until i was in Jr. High when a friend dared me to run in and out of the boys bathroom that I first saw a urinal. At first glance I thought that the urinal was a special type of sink that boys required. It wasn't until months later when my mother got my dad in trouble for leaving the toilet seat up yet again, did I have the curiosity to ask what the big deal was. It was then that she explained to me how it was that men peed. I felt like a complete idiot having believed the boys and girls pee sitting down.
I use to believe that...Boys keep their poo and wee in their scrotum.
I used to believe that you had a big bottom if you didn't poo enough, that the bottom cheeks held all the poo , so needless to say I used to sit on the toilet for ages
I'm too young to remember, but my mother has told me that the first time I used the toilet properly I got really upset when she flushed my poo away and I cried because I hadn't said goodbye to it.
