When I was 14 I went through a Jane Austin phase. Around the same time I decided I was going to be a childcare worker when I finished school.
On the train one day a man asked me what I was going to do when I finished school and I told him I was going to be a wet nurse.
He was absolutely stunned for a few seconds and then said that that was a very unusual occupation these days and I looked at him as though he were mad and said 'Are you kidding? It's very common!" and then changed seats so I wouldn't have to sit next to the madman any longer.
It was a year or two later that I found out what a wet nurse does... and I will remember that poor man's expression forever.
As a child I believed that when a person was fired from their job, they were executed on a firing range.
My son once told me he saw a policeman. I replied "where did you see the police officer?" He replied that he was not a police officer because he had a car. I said "what do you mean?" Police officers don't have a car because they work in the "office".
i used to believe that a man was sitting squashed up in those barrier boxes pressing a button sat on a chair all day letting cars in and out.
When I was six I believed that being a real estate agent was the best job in the whole world because (to me) all you did was scribble on papers with real nice fancy pens, circle pictures of houses you liked, brings your friends around to nosy through other peoples houses, and make millions of dollars a year.
That was my dream, at 6, to be a real estate agent. HA
I used to believe that men go the army and women get babies when they grow up! that was their fate!
I used to believe that one could actually grow up and get a career as a fairy princess... sometimes, I wish I still did.
i used to believe that a living person can never ever be a scientist.......a person who has contributed a lot in the field of science would be called a scientist after his/her death.......because all the scientists i read about in books were all dead..........
I used to believe I could become a cloud-maker.
I used to believe that my dad didn't really go to work, but he spyed on me all day. I sware I saw him peep his head round the door when I was playing with my toys many times.
I used to believe that if you put on a pair of black rubber gloves you'll turn into a grave keeper.... I know totally stupid ah????
i used to believe that my mom is a doctor, cos when i used to get ill when i was little, she managed how to cure me :)
When I was younger I wanted to be an archeaologist. I watched lots of TV shows on Egyptians, Pompei, and the like. What finally made me decide against it is that I was worried if I was alone and found a skeleton, I would scream and cry (and ruin my career).
My Dad was an area manager for a shoe firm, and my sister Stephanie (aged about 9) announced that when she grew up she wanted to be a manageress. My name is Paula, and when I heard this (aged about 5) I informed my father that if she was going to be a "manager S" then I was going to be a "manager P"
i used to think that the paparazzi were a group of Italian criminals or spies. i have no idea why??
My dad works with computers, so when I was little I used to believe that the way he earned money was that the computer printed it out for him.
I grew up in Reno where there were always signs posted by the slot machines that said "No Minors". I thought that they didn't want miners to play the slot machines because they were already rich enough from mining all the gold.
When my little brother was about three years old, I asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up. He replied, "a California dancing raisin!" Boy, did I ever have a hard time explaining to him that he couldn't be a raisin when he grew up.
I used to think that minimum wage meant that you were paid one cent an hour - since that's the lowest amount of money you could possibly get to!
When I was young I used to think that a urologist was "your ologist". This created conversations such as "He's a urologist" "My ologist?" "No, a urologist" "I know, my ologist". This would go on for at least five minutes.
