When i around 5 or 6 and went to the supermarkets with my parents, they used to leave it til the store was shutting before they would finish their shopping. I remember the staff pulling down the roller doors and i used to scream and cry, thinking that we'd be locked inside for the night. I would pull in my mothers arm and try to drag her out the door before the mean staff locked us in!

I used to believe that when you paid tax on a purchase, you paid extra money because you didn't have any tacks to pay, and that the cashier took the money and bought the tacks themselves so they wouldn't get in trouble with the IRS.

When me and my mum used to cross at the traffic lights she'd always say 'wait for the green man to come!.'
I always looked up at the sky and thought that some crazy real life green man would come flying down like superman. it was disappointing to eventually find out it was only a light :/

I used to believe that it was the law to hold the railing when you're walking down/up stairs

Up until I was 14, I thought that the store" Car toys" didn't sell car accesories, but that they sold phones, phone accesories, and mp3 players and walkmans. I was shocked to see an ad on tv for "Car Toys" selling tvs for your car and speaker systems for your car.

I used to think that strip malls were places men went to shop, so they could buy everything and be entertained by strippers placed randomly throughout the mall.

When I was smaller (I guess I'm still technically a child) I used to think that stores, especially liquor stores, would buy things at a slightly lesser price than wholesale from companies and that they'd pay the rest through a kind of "tax" when you bought it. I've no idea where this came from, but I remember thinking that it was "So complicated and stupid, so what's the point of having a higher wholesale anyway, what's it for?" Hahaha. It's truly ridiculous...only a left-brained person could think like that as a kid. Also, I don't remember when I realized that this was complete b.s. that I'd sold myself XD

when i was mayeb 5 i used to believe that if i went into clothing store wearing something i had not bought at that store, they would be offended and would yell at me. same thing if i went into a store with toys in it, i always got really nervous when my little brother insisted on bringing a toy into a store with him, i was convinced that we would get in trouble.
needless to say, i really hated shopping with my mum.

when i was a little i used to believe the travel section (the section with all the mini bottles of shampoo and stuff) was the aisle where little people shopped. when i say little people i don't mean dwarfs, i mean miniature grown-ups a little taller than i was. it only made sense that mini people needed mini things. and the reason why i never saw them was because they only shopped at night when everyone else was sleeping, there was a whole different mini world at night. then when i went to bj's for the first time i thought "this must be the place where the really big people shop." i have no idea how old i was when i believed this or when i realized i was terribly mistaken.

When I was little, 3 or so, I used to think the elevator in the department store was somewhere you went while the rearranged everything. I mean you go in the box and come out and everything is different. I never used to get confused if we took the stairs though.

The mall I go to has a slope going around it so that there are parking lots on both floors. Until someone showed me the slope, I thought that if you go out the door to the parking lot on a floor where you didn't park, you'd end up in some alternate dimension.

i used to think adoption was done by visiting the baby store, and picking out the one you wanted. i can still remember my vague versions of a store lined with babies.
kind of like a pet store i guess.
i had a wild imagination.

I used to be terrifed that if you were in a store in the mall after it closed, they would shut the gate on you and lock you in there for the night. Everytime an employee went on the intercom announcing the store was about to close, i would burst into tears and start screaming hysterically until we left.

...yeah.

I used to think that when my mom went brought groceries, I didn't understand why she said she went fruit chopping. Later my sister told me I had misheard food shopping.

Before I learned to read, I would go shopping with my mom. If I wanted to go into a toy store, she would point out the sign on the door and tell me that it said "No little blonde boys allowed."

when I was little my mom always said something about things in stores not being on sale so we couldn't buy them...well I was very confused for so long because I thought that meant that the store carried things that people couldn't buy...later I realized my mom just meant by on sale that they were cheaper...
