I used to believe that a drinking problem actually was when you had a problem getting the drink to your mouth-- like they showed on "Airplane"

I thought all soda pop and my dad's beer came in bottles. When soda and beer became commonly found in cans, that seemed real strange to me...tasted different, too. The soda anyway, I'm not a beer drinker.

Several years ago, Burger King's kids meals had Ghostbusters theme. My nanny (in an attempt to get me to wait 'til we had say down to open my fizzy drink) told me that if I opened the can, Slimer would come out. I envisaged the huge holographic Slimer from the Ghostbusters film, and never, EVER opened that can.

When I was 3 or 4 my older sister would always press the correct bump on the top of fast food drink lids (Coke, Diet, Other) to mark which was hers. When I asked her what she did it for, she told me some bumps made the straw harder to drink out of. Everytime I pressed mine down she told me it was the wrong one, but someday I would get it right.

i used to believe that you could spin and shake your cup around in circles in order to make more to drink....so when i was running out of juice, i would sit and spin my cup around for the longest time expecting more liquid to appear....it never worked...but i still do it to this day!

When I was young I used to believe that if you took an asprin and drank a coke real fast you'd get drunk. I never knew anyone daring enough to try it.

that coffee had to go into thick cups and tea in thin cups. This is because tea is thinner than coffee!

By the way, I am now thirty and I still believe this!! I just found out today that this isn't correct!!!

Growing up, I always heard the term "alcoholic" said with the word "beverage." I therefore thought that beverage was a term for an alcoholic drink. When we would stop at a gas station I would refuse to get a drink if the sign above the drinks said "Beverages." I thought it was for adults only. One time I saw my grandmother get a ginger ale from the Beverages section of a gas station and because I had also heard the term ale in regards to alcoholic drinks, I came to the conclusion that ginger ale was alcoholic.
It took me years to learn otherwise. All those times I declined a sip of ginger ale, she probably thought I just wasn't thirsty or didn't want her germs.
I thought she was trying to offer me a sip of booze!

Not my belief, but I caused it.

I work at an after school care centre. There is a water cooler in the room, which is available to children, staff and other adults to use whenever they want. It's a standard model with a little container under the taps to catch any water. It needs to be emptied every now and again.

One child was pushing the lever on the tap, just to fill up the container, so I told him that if the container gets too full and overflows, it gets into the electronics of the dispenser. Because we were in an old building, the electrical system wasn't that great, and the water would go from the cooler to the circuits, knocking out the power to the whole building.

The child backed away immediately! I can't believe I made it up on the spot.

My sister's friend thought that a "Hard" drink meant it was extra sweet. She drank a bunch of 'Mike's Hard Lemonade' without noticing.

My sister used to believe that she lost more weight if she drank Coke out of the bottles rather than from a cup or a can. HAHAHA!

When I was a little girl, my mom told me that it was "against the law" for children to drink beverages that contained caffeine. In kindergarten, my best friend was drinking Coke and I tried to get her to stop because I thought she'd be arrested.
