I thought my kids would enjoy seeing a snow plow drive down our street, since it’s not an everyday occurrence. So when I would hear the familiar rumble after a snowfall, I would shout, “snow plow!” and my son and I would run to the front window to see it go by.
I just found out the other day that my 5yo daughter thought “snow plow” was some kind of winter swirling tornado thing that went by. No wonder she would never run to the window with us!
I used to believe that those signs on the roads that say HIDDEN DRIVE was a game set up on the road. The rules? that you had to find them. I told my mom one day that I always won and see just stared at me and laughed. I felt so dumb!
the street we live on is the same as our surname so when i was younger i believed that we were the first family to live on that street so it was named after us!
When I was young, I thought that the hills in the road were caused by all the wrecked cars over the years being stacked underneath the road.
If you drive through Texas, there are random little brick buildings along highways with big fans on the back and a chain link fence around them (still not sure what they are for, though).
When I was little, I asked my mom what one of those buildings were. She said, "That's where they take animals and put them to sleep."
It wasn't until I was **19** and driving past that same building that I noticed what the building said. Animal Shelter.
It just so happened to look exactly like every other little brown brick building on the side of the road with the fans that I had really initially asked about. I didn't realize they weren't the same until almost 3 years ago. Those buildings always scared me.
I always thought that roads with the "No Outlet" signs were roads where the houses had no electricity. I thought this until I was 8 or 9.
Thanks to her sister, my friend used to believe that it was only impolite to point at people with an ODD number of fingers. If you used an EVEN number, it was okay.
I used to think that joggers running through the streets without wearing a shirt or long pants were chasing after the robbers who had stolen their missing clothing. I was pretty concerned about the crime wave that hit our neighborhood every summer.
i used to believe that when the light turned red your supose to cross the light and at green your suppose to stop well i was a kid lmao
There was a road named "Napp road" and i thought that there were a lot of kidnappings there so i would always crawl on the floor when we had to drive on that road
I used to believe that the large telephone pole outside my bathroom window was where Jesus lived. The Cross at the top I think is what led me to think this. I would pray to that pole everyday..does that count as a false Idol?
I live in a place called Catlett. I used to believe it was called that because there were so many cats roaming around.
Additionally, there's lots of those neighborhood watch signs around, and I thought the criminal guy on them was a cat, so I figured that was special just for us.
There's this street near where I live called Fuqua (pronounced fyu-KWAY). My sister thought it was called FUCK-wa for the longest time.
That many streets were named after doctors (Dr.).
When I was little I loved playing in the park near my house, but when it was time to go home I never wanted to leave, so my mother told me that the park was going to close. When I heard that I pictured a giant glass dome falling from the sky trapping kids who stayed in the park for too long for eternity. I would run for my life when she told me the park was closing!
If you step on the cracks in tiles when walking through a street, fairies will die.
have you ever seen the signs about neighbourhood watch with a guy on it in a trenchcoat with a hat on that was completely black(not African American black) and you could only see his eyes?I used to think there was a guy like that in our neighbourhood.
When I was a kid I thought that the neighborhood watch sign (of the black figure with a trench coat and hat, saying keep out) was actually a picture of a cat. I thought it was saying that the neighbors should not have any cats because there were too many dogs in the neighborhood.
When I was little I asked my mom how the lights changed at a stop light. For some reason, she told me that there were "little green men" in the boxes on the pole that worked there. I told her this recently and she said she doesn't remember when or why she would ever tell me this...we laugh about it all the time now!
me and my friends used to believe that my neighborhood had a bad guy lurking about and that he was going to steal me and my friends' bikes and toys that we left outside at night, so we created a secret agent group where we would run through parks and back yards looking for mischevous characters. i'm sure we were the only mischevous looking things around.
