I used to wonder why my mother made my bath so hot. My brother told me it was because she used to be a fire dancer and lost her sense of tempurature. I felt sad for her every time I bathed.

When I was younger I wanted to be an Airline-ticket-taker because I loved watching the airplanes all day, I didn't want to be a pilot because I didn't want to leave my parents. I guess I figured I would just have to bring them to work with me

When I was a very little kid I'd ask Mom where Dad went in the morning. She said he went "to work". When I asked why, she thought that explaining what a lawyer was to a 4 year old might be a bit complicated so she just told me that he went to work to "make money" For a long time I thought my Dad went to a workshop and literally manufactured money.

as a child I believed that trash collectors worked only on Friday, since that was the day our trash was collected. I never understood why when Friday was a holiday they took the day off, since they had to come on Saturday anyway. If you have to work only one day per week, who cares if it's Friday or Saturday?!

When I was younger, I used to believe that most factories of the world were completely automated. I thought that maybe a couple of people looked over the machines to make sure they were working right, but that the most employees that any factory would have would be about 10. I have no idea where this belief stemmed from.

One childhood friend of mine was really rich and they had a maid. One day she told me that her mom had fired the maid. In my mind I imagined the mom firing a gun at the maid and killing her. I was horrified and reported it to my mom, but she just laughed at me.

Me and my sister used to think that my dad owned all the Toms Restaurants because his name was Tom.

We also used to think that our mom's job was to hand out suckers at the bank because everytime we went there that was the only thing that we focused on. ;)

was your employer paying for where ever you chose spend your 2 weeks off. I couldn't understand why everyone wasn't going to some fabulous tropical island as long as someone else was paying for it!

I believed that people actually worked inside the cooling towers. I thought that they must be really brave to stand there at the bottom of that massive, awe-inspiring vat and work away. I had dreams about these people all the time.
I never thought to ask anyone what cooling towers actually did.
