My dad used to think there was a spanking machine at school. You had to sit in a chair with 2 hand shaped paddles that continued at light speed until the red light turned on indicating you were sore. lol

When I was little, I used to think you had to go to a school that taught you where all the places in the city were. Like you would never know how to get to Target or Toys R' Us unless you took this class...What?!???

I used to believe that the big kids in high school spent all of their breaks jumping rope. When I'd asked my oldest sister what was the best thing about high school, she told me, "Skipping." I didn't know that "skipping" was slang for cutting class. I thought high school must be fabulous because she told me that even the boys skipped...along with the girls! I thought this until I actually started high school in Grade 8. I couldn't figure out why NOBODY was jumping rope. After she finished laughing at me, my oldest sister explain it all to me. I was so disappointed!

As a toddler, I loved the show Spot. There was this one episode where Spot goes to school, and he carries his lunchbox in his mouth, becuase he is a dog.

Well, I actually though it was the proper way to hold a lunchbox, so once when my Mom was out shopping, I saw a lunchbox for sale and put the handle in my mouth. The shopkeeper didn't seem too mad...

This wasn't mine, but rather one a math teacher told me:

We he taught 6th grade, he had a student come up and tell him, after the first day of class, that Elemtary School Math was where you learned to add, subtract, multiply, and divide numbers, and Middle School Math was where you learned to add, subtract, multiply, and divide letters instead.

When we we're in Nursey school we all used to sit on the carpet and sing a song called "Daddies taking us to the Zoo tomorrow" I used to worry that the teachers had arranged this without making sure 1.my daddy knew that he was taking a class full of 5 year olds to the zoo and 2.wether or not he had the room in the car.

In kindergarten, one day our teacher told us to be on our best behavior because there was going to be a fire drill later. I had no idea what a fire drill was, but man did it sound cool! A drill that used fire to drill through anything! Imagine what I could do with that! I wanted that fire drill so bad - you better believe I was on my best behavior (I assumed whoever was best-behaved got the fire drill, of course). Man, was I disappointed later on that day.

When I took home the infant simulator that my child development class had me do for a project, I took it to a grocery store. A little girl saw it and asked me if my baby had plastic surgery!

I have always been terrified of injections and in primary school I never took my sweater off because of the fear that the school nurse could come any time and give me one and I thought the sweater would protect my arms.

I believed, really believed, that when we were taught something in school for the first time, it was something that had just been discovered, and we were the first to be told.

I once worried myself sick after a first-school lesson that we'd have some terrible ice-related incident because no-one but my class knew that when water freezes, it expands.

When I was in kindergaten I saw a commercial (I think I misunderstud it) and it was a girl that said she had a child in second grade. I was terrified to go into second grade. Then when i finished second grade I was so relived that I didnt have a baby.

I used to believe there was no high school and when it was about the end of the eighth grade for my bro i started crying and saying "Georgey's leaving!" There was an awkward silence and then my parents and my bro started laughing and asked "Where is he going?" and i said "He's going to college!" and they said "No, he's not, he's just going to another school called high school." I said "Oh" and i went in my room so embarrassed.

There's a high school?

When I was in kindergarden my teacher said raise your hand if you need to speek. So I didn't know that meant like a question or something like that. So I was really bored and I needed to talk. So I raised my hand and when the teacher called on me to speek, I said Baboom Boom lala fafa fefe so me do. My teacher still recalls that I have a BIG problem.

When I was in preschool, my teacher would always ask everyone "Did you bring Show and Tell?" In my preschooler head, I pictured Show and Tell as two twin girls, and would always say no because I couldn't fathom how everyone could bring the same two people to school especially if they weren't already in my class!
