I used to think burglers were like those pool creepy crawleys but on a pole on wheels with blue and white streamers!!! Don't know where I got that one from.
I used to believe that thrift stores were where thief's came to sell all the goods they stole. I couldn't figure out why the police didn't just wait outside the store to catch the thief's.
i used to believe that when you sleep you had to cover your whole body. and if you didnt a robber would come in and cut off whatever part of your body was showing. sometimes i left my hair out hoping i could get just a haircut
When i was small, after seeing a poster in mcdonalds, i thought that robbers were little burgers with blindfolds. It made sence because another name for them was 'burglars'
Every time my family traveled to the coast, they'd buy a crab. Never wanting to share it with me, they told me that it was illegal for people under 21 to eat crab..I believed them for several years.
I used to be really paranoid about robbers breaking into our house when I was younger....
So my grand plan to thwart the criminals was to pretend to be a robber too - by dressing all in black, with a black stripy jumper, and a eye mask and a sack that had 'Swag' printed on it. Then I could go to the robbers hideout with them, and get all our stuff back.
My parents gently dissuaded me, saying that we didn't need any extra security, and it would be very dangerous for me.
Probably just as well - I would have looked more like 'Hamburglar' (remember him?!) than a robber! In fact, that's probably where I got the idea from!!
When I was little I used to believe that college really meant jail. So when my older sister was planning to go to college, I cried.
Whilst watching re-constructions of crimes on the the t.v. i could never fully grasp what sort of person would film an armed robbery, rape, murder etc rather than doing something to prevent it. I am not willing to say how long this moral dilema troubled but suffice to say i was enjoying a pint in a pub (leagally!) when i was given an explanation for their lack of morals!
i used to think being "prosecuted" meant getting the death penalty. i remember crying hyserically when my family and i went hiking, and there was a very old sign that said "do not trespass, violators will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law" i totally thought if we got caught we'd immediately get the electric chair. i thought it was an awful extreme punishment.
Me and my cousin were watching tv (me being 12 and mycousin being 6)
And we were watching the news and there was a thing about a molester so he asked me what that was so I said oh you mean the guy named moe lester??? He's a famous guy that livs in orogon! Of course he believed me and I'm glad that noone heard becasue I didn't want my aunt to go into dep covo's about the good people in the world and bad people who want to hur you!
LOL good times man! That cracks me up but I guess you sorta have to be there for it to be funny but I think it's really funny!
Hey we all have our own points of veiws!
When I was 14 or 15 I used to believe that rape just meant anal sex, so I wondered why rapists were sent to jail. What was all the fuss about, different people like different things and they shouldn´t be punished for that!!! (I was corrected many (many) years after that..., i´m a lawyer now...)
I used to believe that a widower was a guy who killed married husbands to make thier wife a widow
When I was 6 or 7 me and my Best Friend Alexis Acord spent the night @ each others house every other week. We used to think that every time a white van drove by, someone got kiddnapped!!!
Up until recently I thought that arson was a flammable chemical, like gasoline, that criminals used to start fires.
I used to think that rape was when you took off someone's clothes, but usually only the shirt and shoes. How wrong I was.
This one was not believed by me, but by my brother.
When he was in elementary school, he either believed or had been told that bankers had this red button that they could press if there was a robber. The button would eject their seat and have them fly through the roof. He admitted that flying through the roof would not be so useful- but he still said it was present.
I used to belive that anyone who went in the drive-thru at burger king was a burgler.
I used to think being engaged meant being in jail. I have no idea how I came to that conclusion.
Me and my cousins used to watch Law and Order a lot, and often times people would get convicted for assault and battery. Well, I knew what assault was, and I knew what it meant to be battered, but it never really clicked that "battery" meant the act of battering someone. So I just thought they were talking about batteries, like AA, AAA, and so on.
I'm really glad I never asked anyone about that.
I used to believe that if I slept with my face towards the wall, I would be better able to disguise my terror when the Bad Guy broke into my room. Since he would assume I was still sleeping, he would kill my sister instead of me.
