I used to think when a car was stolen , It flew in the sky. Once I saw a person stealing stealing Cookies Box et the Supermarket .My mother explained me that stealing , it was taking something without paying .I was surprised to know the truth.

I used to think rape was just holding people down by force onto a hard object. So I screamed that I was being raped when I was being restrained at school and disciplined onto a mat.

I used to think that if you gave prison guards enough money, they had to let your friends out, and the police couldn't arrest them again unless they committed another crime. It always seemed to work that way in TV shows.

I used to think that when you read letters to counsellors in children's magazines, saying 'I don't like my mum's boyfriend' or whatever, it meant that they had bad taste in something that they didn't agree on, like not agreeing on the same food or watching the same TV show, before knowing now that it usually means stuff about
Paedophilia.

I thought at all prisons they never let the prisoners out of their cells. Once you went to prison, you didn't see the outside of your cell until your sentence was up.

I used to think that a "mafia" and a "gang" were the same thing except for what gender made up each one: A mafia being for girls, and a gang being for boys. Since the word "mafia" sounds like a girls' name, while the word "gang" sounds less feminine and therefore more like a boy's name, this belief made perfect sense to me and i believed it until middle school.

I thought the reason people took illegal drugs is because they tasted so good. I had no idea it had anything to do with getting high.
