One day when I was little I had fast-food in the car. Well, I had a leftover ketchup packet and I started playing with it. I squeezed so hard that I squirted ketchup on the ceiling of the car. The next day, I forgot all about the incident and looked in the car. I started crying to my parents, telling them that a burgalar had come in the car, killed someone, and left some blood on the ceiling. It wasn't until a year later that I remembered what I had done with the ketchup.

When i was in first or second grade i used to get really mad at my dad because he would drink a cup of coffee while driving me to school. One day after he dropped me off at school i was really upset about his "drinking and driving" so my teacher asked me what was wrong. I told her that i was scared that my daddy was going to hurt himself or me because he liked to drink and drive in the mornings. Of course my teacher was very upset about this and took me to the princpal's office, who called my dad and asked him to come to the school for a talk. I remeber lots of laughter coming out of the office and then they came out and explained to me what drinking and driving really meant!!!!

i thought that drinking and driving meant that whenever you drank anything in the car that it was against the law. So anyway one day my mom was drinking a Pepsi or something in the car and i go in with her to work and i told everyone that my mother broke the law because she was drinking and driving.

when i was little i used it think if something bad happened... like a murder or bankrobbery... that it was me sleep walking and i just didnt remember it, and that they would catch me sooner or later... i got very nervous when the phone would ring thinking the cops were questioning my mother about where i was that night n stuff....

now that i think about it i was a very paranoid child :-P

A long time ago my mother took me to see Ollie and Optie (a program that taught kids to be "safe"). The speaker told a story of a psycho killer who had kidnapped a little girl. When her parents where home. On the same floor. She described it in such detail that I thought that he could get me too, so I wouldn't go into my room and would constantly follow my mom around. So, basically it had a reverse effect. Bleh.

I used to think that the crime scene was the same place for all crimes. I always wondered why people would keep going back to it.

My sister used to have two piggy banks.

One was where she kept her allowance money, which was well hidden. The other was filled with 5 pennies and left on her nightstand as a decoy for would-be burgulars!

When the Yorkshire Ripper was still on the loose, I used to think that a prostitute was a woman who was once in jail.

Wish this one was mine... my girlfriend was working in a daycare, where they had of course talked in circle time before about not talking to strangers. When you think about it, to a child, "strangers" come across to be a pretty evil bunch.
Later in the year, a police officer came in as a guest speaker. He was asking the kids why they thought he had different parts of his uniform. When he asked why he had a gun, one kid immediately blurted out, "To shoot strangers!"

i used to believe that when you saw someone killed on t.v. or in movies that they really died but that it was ok because they were using bad people(criminals) for those scenes and that was how we got rid of them.

when i was a lttle boy i used to believe
that metal detectors at airports could find out who was a bad person because older people told me that some persons tried to carry weapons on the plane.
so i assumed that everybody who was stopped at the security checks was a thief or murderer, even if they only had to unpack their backpack to show their personal stereos or whatsoever.

I used to believe arson was a really bad person. It must have come from hearing reports such as, "The police belive arson was responsible for the fire."

When I was about 7, I thought that all robbers could be easily recognized by their thuggish appearance, broken noses, 5:00 shadow and black-and-white horizontally-striped shirts. Once my brother and I got toy rubber bats (as in flying mammals), and we walked around the block looking for robbers. The idea was to shake the bats in their faces and scare them away. We didn't find any. What a boring neighborhood.

My sister and I heard the phrase kerb-crawler on television and logically assumed it to mean someone who drove slowly and close to the kerb, like an old granny (it never occured to us for what reason they were doing that). We were somewhat confused when our mum told us off for shouting it out the car window at some man who was driving really slowly, and oddly enough she refused to tell us what it actually meant

When I read the phrase "violators will be subject to prosecution," I thought it meant that the people that wrote the sign would one day hunt you down and execute you (probably in some foreign country years from now). I wondered why they couldn't arrest you right away... but I wasn't too shocked about the "executing" part.
