My dad was in the reserves. One time when I was [10 I asked him what he did the two weeks a year when he went to summer camp. He told me that he painted jeeps. What he failed to mention was that was one thing he did a long time ago so until I was a teenager I believed that every year when he went to "summer camp" all he did was paint jeeps.

i used to believe my dad was the greatest while he worked in a pizza chain store. the pizza logo on the top of his car made me proud. i wasn't that impressed when he owned his own construction business or took me on cruises.

When I was a little boy, I used to believe my father went in the fire to help the people, I saw him like a hero. But he is just a fireman. It's only his job.
Because in the movie I only saw the heroic side but in the reality it's a dangerous job, he needs courage fot this job.
But I feel protect, in security with my father.
I love my dad ! He remains a hero ! My hero !

I used to think stage makeup was like ordinary makeup, and that people would do things like draw on themselves with lipstick to look like blood or use eyebrow or eyeliner pencils to give themselves spots. It does sound fun.

When I was around ten or eleven, something behind my grandparents house caught fire. I think it was the transformer on the telephone wire. Well, they wound up having to call fire-fighters to come put it out. I remember after the whole thing was over and all the men were leaving... I ran over with a pen and paper and asked for autographs. *lol* I thought they were famous just because they were firefighters, and this was waaaaay before Sept. 11.

After watching snow white and the seven dwarves (Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho, it’s off to work we go…), my sister, aged 2-3, developed some strange ideas about my father, who was a teacher at the time. Each day mom dropped him off at the school and he walked in with a briefcase. In my sister’s mind, he walked in to the school and produced a screw-together pick from his briefcase and started mining. That’s what “work” was, according to Disney and according to my sister.

When I was little, I was told about water cleaning places from some learning program, but not taught all that much... I thought that people would go and sit in an office-like room filled with water, and they would get out scrubbing brushes and scrub the water clean.

Up until third grade I thought that if you worked somewhere, you had to work there 24/7 and if you quit without being fired you would go to jail for a week, and come back to that job after the week but instead of working there 24/7, you'd work there 23/7 (23 hours) and once you kept going to jail and finally only worked there for 1 minute every day, you were allowed to switch jobs.

I was a coo-koo child.

Remember when you were told "you can't be what you want to be when you grow up unless you do good in school"? i used to think it meant someone had to choose for you. then i learned you actually couldn't get a career at all.

I used to think that adults had paid money to get a job and when got paid they were being paid back - so they had to work a certain amount of time to be paid back the full amount that they paid for the job.

When I was younger I believed that everyone enjoyed summer vacation in June, July and August. My mother was a teacher, and my dad worked for an outo company so he had the first two weeks of July off and used all of his vacation time in those summer months. We had a summer cottage and everyone around us was always there for those three months too. It was a sad, sad day when I was about 12 whe I realized that most everyone I knew was a teacher, an auto worker, stay-at home parent, or retired (I had a skewed version of age when I was younger and didn't correllate family friends with time off as being old enough to retire). And it makes sense that when I saw other family members of family friends, it was when they were on vacation too. When the realization struck and I exclaimed to my mom, "I'm going to have to work in the summer!?!?!" she asked me where I thought the people who worked at restraunts and stores came from if I believed that everyone had the summer off. I had staunchly believed that they were students who wanted spending money and retirees who needed something to do with their time. Sometimes when the weather gets warm and Memorial Day approaches I still get giddy at the idea of spending a few months at the lake. Then reality sets back in.

I guess i never understood as a child why people went to work. I always wonderd why adults did this and never could figure it out.
