As a child I believed that toilets were alive. When you used them, you were feeding them, and if they didn't like what you fed them, they'd vomit it back up (overflow). If you made them angry, they would eat you, so you had to be nice to them and not make them sick. Stranger-toilets (e.g. public restrooms) were especially untrustworthy - best to keep an eye on them at all times.
I also believed that they would detach from the wall and dance around the bathroom at night when no one was around. You couldn't normally catch them at this, because they'd go back to being inert as soon as they heard you coming, but if you closed the bathroom door and then quietly crawled up to it and looked under the bottom, you could see this happening.
When i was a kid(about 6 or 7) I thought if you didnt get up before flushing the toilet, a monster would rise out of the toilet and eat you
I used to believe that when you sit on the toilet and don't flush soon enough before you get off, a snake would rise out of the toilet and bite you
I used to think there was a monster in the toilet
I used to be afraid to use the toilet because i thought a zombie hand was going to grab me and i'd get sucked down

I used to believe there was a frog inside the toilet , the noise he made was identical , but after a few years of very afraid my aunt Told Me was When there was an air circulation in the pipes.
I used to think that if you put a piece of paper or something like that in the toilet, someone else could receive the message when their toilet clogs.. So every time i used to the toilet, i would put a piece of paper with a message so someone can receive my gift.

When I was 4, AIDS was the cultural zeitgeist, propagated by fear especially from the Reagan administration. Fueled by this, alongside the "stranger danger" cultural provocation of the time, my mother had been fairly stern in her warnings of an imperceptible risk of a stranger kidnapping me, molesting me and giving me AIDS. When asked, her response was that AIDS could come from anywhere. At some point in pre-school I had something on the tip of my tongue which I attempted to wipe off using the hand-roll dryer and for several weeks I lived in near constant fear that I had perhaps contracted AIDS from the towel dispenser - for surely, a molester would also lurk in the restroom.
