My sister thought the police would actually come arrest the whole family if we tore the 'do not remove' tags off pillows or matresses. You just DIDN'T DO THAT!

When my friends slept over my house years ago I always made them sleep on the side of the bed closest to the door. This way, when the bad people broke into my house at night and entered my room, they would be closer and, therefore, be murdered instead of me. I never told them this though, of course. They just thought I was picky on which side of my bed I slept on.

When i was younger i used to think that signs on gardens and business' etc saying tresspassers will be prosecuted meant that i would be shot and killed. Completely confusing it with executed. Needless to say i never went "tresspassing" with my friends.

As a kid, I just couldn't get around the idea of good and evil. I often would think to myself, "Why would anybody choose to become a bad guy?" Then I realized that God gave everyone the choice before they were born, and naturally there would be a few who chose to be bad.

I used to believe that when someone was sentenced to life in prison, it meant that they had to do the amount of years that they had already lived. For the longest time I assumed that this meant if they happened to die during that time, they would keep the corpse in the prison until the fiend's sentence was up.

Ok I moved from my home town to a new town when I was 9 years old and into a trailer park and my bedroom was at the back of the house. My window faced this railroad track that was RIGHT outside our home. All day I thought it was kind of cool that I lived right by a train track, but that night I'm watching the news on my tv cause I couldn't find anything else to watch and I saw this news report about a "train man". Who they said jumped off trains and killed someone and jumped back on the train to the next town. I started crying!!! I bawled all night and couldn't sleep cause I was so sure that the train man would come to our house and kill me since I was right by the tracks. Even after they caught him I thought that there were a whole bunch of "train men" and still had a hard time getting to sleep in that trailer till I was atleast 13 years old!!

I thought people at fast food joints were idiots for giving the food when they already had the money. I waited for the day they would catch on to what a profit they could make.

When I was little, my mum was telling me about speeding fines. I asked her what would happen if you didn't pay it, and she said you got into a lot of trouble and you might go to jail. I was really scared because I thought that meant that if you tried to buy something and then found you couldn't pay, you would go to jail. I was really scared and even had a dream where my dad was sent to jail when he couldn't pay some bank bill.

When I was about 8 I started "playing doctor" with the boy next door. A few years later I heard the term child molestor and when I found out what it meant I was terrified. I thought that "playing doctor" made me a child molestor and the police would find out my dirty secret and come drag me off to jail. I didn't realize that you have to be an adult in order to qualify.

When I was a little kid,about 3 or 4,if I started to get rowdy in public,my mom would always say "Do you want that man to get you?" and pointed to the nearest able bodied male.
Thus,I believed that all men where child abductors until I got lost in the mall when I was 5 and a guy tried to help my find my mother,but I punched him,kicked him,and ran off into the clothing department to hide in the clothes rack.Of course,I ran off everytime a male shopkeeper asked me where my mom was.

After a female clerk finally found me and took me to my mom,my mom yelled at me for running all over the mall.I shouted,"BUT EVERYONE WAS TRYING TO GET ME,MOMMY!There are a bunch of kidnappers in this store!I can tell,if they're a boy and they're not related to me or a police officer with a badge,they're a kidnapper!"

She never used that threat again.
