in the streetShow most recent or highest rated first.
in my neighborhood there was a road called Pain lane. i avoided that street as much as possible, every one that i knew that went down that street hurt themselfs some how. in fact one day i thought it was stupid that i even had this superstition so i went down there, i almost broke my foot on that road that day.
I used to believe that a big monster would come round the corner and eat me if i stood on the cracks in the pavement
i thought the for sale sign buy owner things meant that u could also buy the owner
Every time we were in the industrial part of town i would see this big stormwater drain, more like a large concrete-lined canal. I honestly believed that if you stood in the drain you would immediately be cloned! So, if you stood in there long enough there would be an army of you....don't know where i got that one from!
There's a flag pole in the square down the street from my house and I used to think God had a chair on top of it where he'd watch over all of us
When I was very little there was and old man in my neighborhood that would talk a walk down my street everyday. My mom would sacre me and tell me that he was a crazy old man that took little kids and if i wouldn't finish my dinner he was going to come in the door and take me away. Till this day Really old men scare me.
I used to go with my dad in the car when he went to the gas station. He would always say "fill her up Ethyl." I used to think all gas station attendants were named Ethel. One day I asked my dad how come the gas station attendants (who were all men back then) had the same woman's name. He set me straight.
i used to believe that sleeping policemen were dead policemen covered with concrete that were buried in the middle of the road. i used to put my feet up when ever we went over them so that they didnt grab me and pull me down with them.
When my family lived in California, we had a very strange neighbor. When we moved in, I asked him what his name was. He replied, "I don't know!"
For the entire time we lived there, our next door neighbor was referred to as "Mr. I-don't-know."
I was three years old and it was the first time I was allowed to walk alone (supervised from a distance) to my best friend Lorianne's front door (three doors down) and ask if she could come out and play. Lorianne'e horrible older sister answered the door and promptly told me to GET LOST! I ran crying all the way back to Mum, screaming BUT I DON'T WANT TO GET LOST!
I remember how terrified I was - I thought I had to do what I was told !
when I was growing up I truly believed that my neighborhood was the only neighborhood with "THE CORNER"
The Salvation Army building in Crewe when i was growing up had the letters S and V missing from their name on the outside of their building. I thought they were called the Alsation army until I was 14 when they added the letters that were missing. I never could undertsand why everyone else called them the Salvation Army.
One day in the middle of summer, I woke up to the sounds of a constant thudding which seemed to shake the entire house. My first reaction from this peculiar noise was to look at my glass of water and i thought "dinosaurs are coming!"
When I finally faced my fear and got out of bed after listening to the dinosaurs getting closer, I looked out the window and saw a backhoe digging up the asphalt on the road...BOOM...BOOM
I'm not quite sure why I thought this, ut I did. I thought if you walked over a bridge in a cemetery, you had to fold your hands as if you were praying or it would break...

When I was 5 or 6 I used to believe that there are huge caverns beneath the sidewalks and streets there were caverns with stalagtites. I think that the holes dug when the city streets where being worked on in the city where I live gave me this impression.
I used to believe that when it got dark outside, there was a little dwarf-like man running under the streets switching all the lights on.. Now that I think about it .. He must have been a bloody good runner !!
i used to believe that the "coin wash" was to clean my dirty pennies.
I used to believe that petrol stations were there because someone had dug for oil and found it and built the petrol station there. Then when they were closed down it was because the oil had run dry!
When I was little, I used to see "Hidden Driveway" signs and believe that they had been specially hidden for alert people to find, like Easter eggs or a game of Where's Waldo. So I was always very excited to see "Hidden Driveway" signs and look for the hidden driveway. After my sister informed me that the signs were just there to warn drivers about the driveways being hard to see from the road, I was pretty disappointed, and a little more magic went out of my world.
