I honestly used to beleive that there was a chain of shops around the country called 'antiques', and they seemed to be inevery town or village we went to. On a separate note, i also used to think it was pronounced 'anticues'

I Used to Believe that when you wear new shoes, the people would laugh at you and try to trip you, so thats why when I was younger, i never wanted new shoes!!

I was convinced by my aunt that ALL the clothes in shops are tried on by either customers, or the assistants in the shop so if we get clothes we have to wash them twice before wearing them to clean all the dirt them left in it. i used to run the bath tub and wash the new clothes with shampoo, then dry them with a hair dryer. I stopped believing this when I ruined a really expensive only-dry-cleanable dress that I was suppose to wear to a wedding when I was 11.

When I was younger my mother used to go to a butcher shop to get her meats. I believed that they killed the cows right there in the back rooms and I was always trying to get a peek into the back hallway.

When I was a little kid, about 4 or 5 years old, my mom would take me shopping. Everytime she bought something, she put down pieces of paper (which were bills) and some circular metal thing down (which were coins). So then I thought "Maybe it's like trading." The next time we went shopping, I brought pieces of paper with me and a couple of pennies. I took the toy I wanted, handed some paper and pennies to the cashier, and left.

At the Home Depot hardware stores, they have those zany little trucks driving up and down the aisles, like, all the time. My little sister and I were always terrified of the things and when we heard the beep-beep-beeping noise they make to keep customers from getting crushed under the wheels, me and my sis would run away from our parents screaming all the while. Usually, our pissed parents would end up in the kitchen department where a floor manager would direct them to a set of display cabinets containing their frightened little girls. Why would you ever bring small children to Home Depot?

I use to be afraid of escalators in the mall, It wasnt the riding part that scared me , it was at the end and I thought it would suck me in.

I use to believe that if you touched one of those dressed mannequins in the department stores you would turn in to one.

when i was about 5 or 6 i asked my mom what a flea market was. i had been bugging her so she told me that it was a store that sold fleas just to get me to shut up. i believed her and thought it was true until i made a complete idiot out of myself when i was about 11.

There are these metal devices used to measure what one's shoe size is. And when I was little I used to believe that these things were made to cut off your foot so whenever a sales clerk in a shoestore approached me with one I'd promptly run away crying hysterically.

When we were about to park in some mall's parking lot, my mom looked around at all the cars and said "it's gonna be a zoo!" (as in, the place is gonna be packed). When I went in with her and looked around, I asked her where the animals were. XP

I believed that inanimate objects had feelings and opinions.
When we'd go clothes shopping I thought that my new clothes didn't like me, and wished that someone else had bought them instead.

I used to believe that while in the grocery store check out lane, just as it was possible to scan food items to determine their price -- it was possible that I too could be scanned. I thought many times about how much I might be worth.

When i was younger my mother would often take me on trips with her to the grocery store. Sometimes while shopping i'd see the words "Fat Free" on a package. I'd always earnestly encourage my mom to buy the product because i that "Fat Free" meant that you got fat free of charge.

you know at the convenince stores and such, they have those round mirrors on the ceiling, so the clerks can see if you are shoplifting? well, im 14, and up until a short time ago, i always thought those mirrors were actually hidden security cameras, so if i was in an isle alone with one of those mirrors, i would either wave, make faces, or glare at it, because i thought some security gaurd was watching

When I was around 6 years old, I lost my knitted winter cap in a department store while I was there with my Mother. Two weeks later, we came back to the store, and the escalator was all taken apart. My mom told me not to ask anyone if they had seen my cap because it had been pulled down into the escalator and gotten caught and we'd have to pay for the escalator repairs. I guess I had more presence of mind at the time because I didn't believe it but I thought SHE did.

When I was little I used to have the habit of sticking my hand up inside vending machines, trying to reach the candy.
One day my mom told me that I shouldn't stick my arm up into the machine, because there were little men inside who dispensed the candy, and if I put my arm up inside far enough, they would grab me, pull me in, and I would forever spend my life as a vending machine worker.
To this day (I'm 22 now) I still have to get someone to reach into the vending machine pockets to fish out whatever I purchase.

This isn't my belief, but something a friend of mine heard a small girl say as she was exiting a store.
In New Zealand, there's a store called "The Warehouse." In the commercials, it always says "The Warehouse -- Where everyone gets a bargain!"
This girl was only about three or so, and so she didn't know what a "bargain" was, only that everyone who went to the store got one. Apparently, she was heard crying and wailing upon leaving the store about how she "didn't get her bargain!"
