When I was a child, I was terrified by the "Trespassers will be Prosectuted" signs I saw. I accidentally read 'prosecuted' as 'persecuted'. I had learned in religion class that Jesus was persecuted, and I knew he had been killed, so unfortunately I believed they meant the same thing. Therefore, the signs meant that anyone who trespassed would be immediately killed. I was always terrified to set foot on private property for fear I would be shot.
i used to believe "rape" was unauthorized twisting of a woman's breasts. It wasn't till I was 9 till I learned the truth.
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!
I used to think cerial killers were cereal makers that hated their jobs so they bought boxes of cereal and stabed it untill the box could not hold the cereal at all. then they crushed the cereal unto little crumbs.
untill I was 9 I use to watch FBI most wanted and whenever I heard cerial killer I think poor cereal then go up to my mom and ask to go to the store and check if the cereal is still ok...........wow
I used to believe when i was 6-8 years old that the criminals in the prison ate spiders with bread, i think why my father told me that so i was scared to go into prison .. Now i can laugh about it
I used to believe that when the news reported that a woman got "raped"... it meant someone caught her and hit her with a garden rake, or raked her up her back leaving nasty scratches.... and thats why it was such a horrable thing when a woman is "raked"
I dont know where this came from, probably one of my brothers...but untill I was about 11 I believed that if you were in jail long enough you could become a judge. Therefore all lawyers and judges being exconvicts..?
As a child it was my belief that people went to school to learn how to be criminals. In my mind I pictured a classroom full of men all dressed in black catsuits sitting at desks taking copious notes.
When I was about 9 or 10 and first heard of "hookers", I thought they were women who hung out just about anywhere and snatched unsuspecting men that passed by with shepherd's crooks, didn't learn the truth for several years after, even after watching Pretty Woman.
I used to believe that serial killers were people who went around stabbing Cheerios, Frosted Flakes, and other breakfast cerials.
I used to believe that it was illegal to eat hot cross buns at any time other than easter, and those who did were committing a moral atrocity.
For some reason, I used to believe that women only got raped on train tracks.
Up until recently I thought that arson was a flammable chemical, like gasoline, that criminals used to start fires.
I used to believe that if you did not keep your shoes tied, that the police would arrest you.
I thought that when someone was called an "ex-con," I didn't know that meant "ex-convict." I thought it meant that the person was an "ex-con artist." I thought he or she used to con people out of money, but not anymore.
I used to believe that when a woman was raped, she was actually being scraped. So for a while I said to anybody that would listen that when I fell off my bike I was raped. Needless to say alot of my teacers talked to my parents.
when i was little i believed that if you got three speeding tickets that you went to the electric chair
I always used to think that there was an invisible mafia and they were always trying to shoot me with their guns. But every movement I made throughout the day would "dodge" the bullets and never get hit. I could only imagine how angry they would get as they kept missing. maybe they should take mafia-shooting lessons..............invisibly
Thankfully as a child, I had no concept of "assault" and a battery was what made things work. With the term "assault and battery", for some reason I thought it must refer to a car battery and I tried to comprehend why someone would pour salt on one.
When I was a kid, I was a bit confused about the word 'prosecuted' and consequently thought that prostitutes were all people who had been caught trespassing. You know, "Trespassers will be Prosecuted."
