For the longest time (Until a few weeks ago) I used to believe that a Paralegal was another name for a foster child or young ward (like from Batman) And sometimes they would use the word on TV and it would throw me way off track. Then a few weeks ago me and my friend went out for breakfast and in some conversation we were having she mentioned that her brother was going to be a paralegal. I was confused at first and I told her what I thought it was and she had a good laugh. I'm not even sure why I thought it meant that either. God I'm a moron. Im 18 too.

When I was about 6 or 7 my Dad worked and got to fire people a lot. When he came home one night and said he had fired someone, I thought, that's horrible how could Daddy be that mean? Until I was aroung 10 I thought that if you got fired, whoever fired you took you outside, lit a match, and set you on fire.

When I was a kid, I used to think that every business built their foundation on a block of ice, but left one building on normal dirt. This was usually called the "off-ice".

My dad is a solicitor but when I was little I asked my mum what my dad's job was and she said he was a 'silly cheater'. For years I thought that's what he did for a living.. well my mum was kinda right I suppose...

About 6 years ago, i saw a commercial for mydiscountbroker.com. It had a pretty catchy song thingy so i remembered it (and hummed it upon occasion). When discussing what i wanted to be when i grew up, i mentioned to my mom the occupation of a "discount broker". My mom looked very puzzled and tried to find out from me what it was. I said "you know, like peter, a discount broker". Peter is my family's stock broker, so my mom understood, and she burst out laughing when she realized i thought that he was a "discount broker" and laughed even harder when i told her about the commercial...

When my sister started working at a bank, she often discussed with my parents about the "Swiss Bank Secret". I always wondered what this could be. I imagined, everyone who start working at the bank could go in a huge treasure and catch sight of it, but wasn't allowed to talk about what he has seen...

One day my dad came home from work and we were all sitting round the table eating dinner. Dad wasn't happy and mum ask if everything was ok at work. Dad said that he had given Donna his reciptionist, the sack. I sat there thinking why has he given her a heshan sack, what can she do with that? For years i thought that getting the sack meant that you were given a heshan sack until one day i just learnt that it meant you've lost your job.

Up until a few minutes ago, I thought that a "wet nurse" was someone who "took care" (let's not get into the details) of paralyzed/senile people who couldn't go to the toilet on their own. I wondered who would want to get such a job. I'm 17, by the way...

When I was little I thought that only people who are getting payed so much that they can live as they want, not as they can were pop and rock stars.
It scared me so much that from the age of 4 ive been singing and dancing so much, cause only a thought of a doctors or salesmans job frightens me!
