When I was small my brother and I were fighting over a single dollar bill my uncle had.
He took it and ripped it in half, then gave 1 half to each of us.
We tried to use it as actual currency/tried to tape it back together...

I used to believe that credit cards had an infinite amount of money on them, because whenever my mom didnít have enough money, she would pull out a credit card. I thought she was such an idiot for not using it all the time.

I used to believe that checks were 'make your own money' paper so you could write down any amount on them and you would have that much money. When I was about 4 I took my mom's checkbook and made each check for a million dollars so I could buy myself everything I wanted.

Needless to say, I freaked out and I thought that we'd be in so much debt because she'd shredded the check after telling me checks took money out of her bank account.

When I was little I thought whenever cashiers gave you your change whenever you bought something, they were actually just giving you free money because they were just so grateful that you bought something from their store!

I used to think that when I would go to the bank that they would put my money in a shoebox in the safe and give me back my money when I came to withdraw. Boy was I upset when they gave me somebody else's money!

when I was a child whenever one of my brothers or I found a coin we had to go and show it to my dad. He told me that if I ever found a coin with the Princesses head on the back I could keep it, and if my brothers found one with the prince or king on the back they could keep it. He naturally got to keep any coin with the Queen's head on the back. I can't believe I fell for that one for so long- I think we ended up giving him a fair bit of money over the years.

Up until I was around 7 or 8, I believed that one day, without warning, my family would just lose all our money and become homeless. I kept a secret stash of tinfoil and anything spray-painted gold/silver so that we would have something to sell to pay for food, clothes, etc. when this happened. I believed that anything that LOOKED like silver and gold, must be silver and gold, and therefore must be valuable.

I used to think that when you get change back at the store, they were actually giving you free money. So I never understood why when we couldnt afford something we couldnt just go buy something to get money

When I was around three years old I accidentally tore a coupon in half. I thought for some reason that I wasted a huge sum of money and started crying and apologizing to my mom. I asked her if she still had enough money to help pay for me to college. When she explained to me what coupons were I felt better.

When my sister was a freshman in college, my mom called her to tell her her checking account was overdrawn. My sister didn't know what that meant and my mother said, "It means you don't have any more money!" My sister countered, "Yes I do! I still have a whole box of checks!"

I talked my brother into "trading" stacks of money. The stacks I was giving him were all pennies but they were much larger than the stacks he gave me (of only quarters and dimes). I convinced him that the penny stacks were worth more.
