I used to thinm that all criminals were like the bad guys on tv, but then I learned better and thought that there was no such thing as criminals!

I once thought, when I was three I think, that people would steal cars by just picking them up and running away! I had a little image in my head of a blond guy running up to our car, picking it up (as if it were only 5 lbs,) and running away! This made me wonder why millions of cars don't get stolen every day

There's this coffee house in Knoxville, Tennessee that I've gone to with my mother since I was little. It had a huge deck out back, and there was another little part down some steps. I remember some Gothic girls telling me that there were "bad people" under the stairs, so don't go under them.

I feared the space under the stairs, and avoided that part completely. Even now, I'm still a bit hesitant to walk near there.

When I was little and we would watch America's Most Wanted they said most of the people could be found in Florida, where I live and I thought that the murderer's were outside the window watching and would kill us for watching the show and trying to catch them. It terrified me!

When I was seven I tried to make a movie play on a TV at the store. The TV went off and made a loud noise and I ran away because I thought I was in trouble. A lot of store workers came to check out the TV. I thought they caught me on camera or something so the next day when I went to the pool and saw a police officer I thought he was looking for me. I went over bawling my eyes out and told him the whole thing. (oopse!!!)

I used to believe that suicide was a crime you could go to jail for because people would say "They commited suicide" like commiting a crime. I'm pretty sure I thought it was a combination of murder and robbery.

When I was about eight years old, I heard something on the news about money laundering. I thought that money laundering meant that you'd accidentally left some money in your pockets when you did your laundry, and I couldn't see why it was such a big deal... but I made sure my pockets were empty whenever I put something in the laundry, because I did not want to go to prison for money laundering.

My mother left me in the car while she quickly went into a store. I noticed posted on the shop-window "Help Wanted". I immediately became terrified for my life, figuring they needed help to find a wanted criminal in the area.

I used to believe (and i admit i sometimes still do) that when you were away from your house for over an hour at night, when you came home the first person to use the toilet would be attacked by a burgler hiding behind the shower curtain who had been stealing from the house and had hid away in the bath when he heard people come home.

I used to sleep in my bed all rolled up in a ball. My mom would ask me why and i would tell her that it was beacuse I was afraid that someone would break into our house and upon seeing my incredibly comfortable bed, steal the bottom half of it. I slept balled up to make sure that my legs wouldnt get cut off when he cut my bed in two. Yes, this actually terrified me.
