When my mother was a child, she believed that since she could see the people on TV they could see her too. Accordingly, she would never turn on the television unless she was properly dressed. Until this day, nearly 43 years later my mohter will not watch tv in her pajamas.

I used to believe that the newscasters could see me, so I would stick out my tongue at them and try to poke them in the eye.

Back in the day, when you watched the Price is Right at the end of the show the winners, losers, models, etc would stand around and wave at the cameras. I used to believe that they were waving at me, because my grandfather told me they were. One day I was happily waving everybody goodbye and my grandmother said sharply, "they can't see you". I was so disappointed.

I used to believe that the people on tv could really see and hear you, so if they asked a question, I would run to the speaker on the front of the tv and yell the answer out to them.
Also, if I was afraid to leave the room while the tv was on, because I thought the people would be mad because they were left by themselves.

When I Was Younger, I Used To Believe That News Reporters On Televison Could Actually See You, So I Would Make Head Gestures To Let Them Know I Was Paying Attention.

I Also Licked My Tongue, And Held My Middle Finger Up To The Reporter And Ducked Behind The Dresser lol

For some reason I thought that the characters on television could see you the same as you could see them, that they were staring out at you. I watched Barney religiously. I had a MAJOR crush on Michael-the cute curly blonde-anyone remember him? For some reason I thought that the characters on television could see you the same as you could see them, that they were staring out at you. So I used to put on a little dress and fix my hair whenI watched television. And whenever there was a close-up of Michael, I would sort of shyly smile and giggle at him, and maybe wave. It was ridiculous.

I used to think when I was little the people on tv could see what you were doing. So I'd never get dressed while watching tv or anything.

I used to believe that anyone on TV could see me watching them. They wouldn't talk to me, but they could see me. I would never pick my nose, scratch my butt, or do anything funny in front of the TV because I didn't want to make them laugh and mess up their lines.

one time my brother and i were acting up in the family room, and the tv was on, and mr rogers was just about to come on, and my mom told us, "you'd better behave, because mr rogers can see you!" and i was horrified that mr rogers would see us misbehaving and be mad at us so after that i was always very well behaved during his show.

I used to think that on the news, the people reading the news could see you in the same way that you could see them. When I was about 5 I used to show my bum to the TV because I thought the news was boring and imagine the look on my horrified mother's face when she'd walk into the room and I'd be pulling a moonie at the TV!
