I used to think that when there were police chases, the cop was racing the bad guy and if the bad guy won then he was allowed to get away and Visa Versa

When I was about 6 I thought it was the funniest thing in the world to prank call 411. One day I called them and spoke in a French accent. When the man answered the phone, I asked, in French, if he spoke French, and was (unpleasantly) surprised to hear him say "oui," considering I myself knew no French beyond "Do you speak French?" He proceeded to ask me something in French. Not knowing what to do, I assumed that he was saying, "city and state please," seeing as that was what they usually said when you called 411. I replied, after a long pause, "Uh...Paris, France" and the guy immediately sighed and said, "Alright, for impersonating a Frenchman, that's a fine of $250 dollars..." Terrified, I hung up before he could even finish his sentence, and for at least two years after that, I lived in genuine fear of receiving a massive bill from the 411 people or being hunted down by the FBI. I never prank called 411 again.

In kindergarten, it was really cool to ride the school bus without a seatbelt on. Naturally I never wore a seatbelt, unless we happened to pass a police officer, in which case I put it on as fast as possible. It took me YEARS to realize that even if five-year-olds could be thrown in jail for not wearing a seatbelt, there was no possible way he could see my lap from outside the bus.

Oddly enough, almost all the kids in my neighborhood thought the same thing.

I used to believe that cops' radar could see through your car... how else could they know that you aren't wearing your seatbelt? And sometimes when I would lay down in the back seat I would be afraid that they could see me and my mom would get pulled over. I even thought they would be able to see me picking my nose and laugh at me.

I used to believe that there was a huge book called "The Rules" that listed everything you weren't allowed to do, and it was written by the Government, and the Police could check it from time to time

When I was a kid I thought that when a cop drove by you were supposed to call them a pig and oink at them and they didn't mind. One time a cop threatened to give me and my brother each a really big fine and we felt so bad that we didn't tell anyone for years.

I used to believe that as soon as someone got hurt doing something, the gubment made up a law to prevent it from happening again.

When I was little I used to throw fits in Wal-Mart if I didn't get what I wanted and my mom told me that the Wal-Mart police would take me away if I didnt stop and from then on I was always good in Wal-Mart until I realized there were no Wal-Mart police around age 7

When I was little I used to believe that I was smarter than police because i thought that you could give a criminal a lie detector test and then you would know if they were the criminals or not I thought i was gona go up to police one day and tell them about lie detector tests and they would pay me and i`d become famous later i found out how these tests work and theyre not just a red button lighting up when you lie and a green one lighting up when you tell the truth

When I was younger my sister told me that unmarked trucks patrolled neighborhoods and nabbed kids to bring them to juvie like the dog catcher. She then explained that juvie is a place where I would be suction cupped to the wall. Every time I saw one afte that I would whisper "there's the juvie truck". That wenton until I was about 7.

I used to want to be a police officer because I thought you got superpowers. For example, I thought they had some sort of superpower that made you get on the ground when they yelled,"GET ON THE GROUND!" And robbers could somehow resist this with magic. I was a messed up kid.
