I was scared of toilets as a little kid because i was afraid that i would get sucked into it
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.
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.
I thought that toilets would suck me in when ever I sat down
When I was little I used to believe that every time you flushed the toilet, that a door at the end of the pipe would open and trolls would run up it and if you were still in the bathroom then they would get you. Whenever I flushed the toilet I always ran as fast as I could down the stairs and jumped down the last few so I was faster. When I twisted my ankle I was scared that I couldn't get out fast enough so I got loads of toilet paper and purposely blocked the toilet so that the trolls were stuck.
When I was a kid. I used to believe that when I went to the toilet, a snake would eat my bottom.
Since then, I look into the toilets before using them.
When I was about 4, I became convinced that if I the toilet was closed and I opened it, I would see the face of my mother's youngest step-brother looking at me. I was terrified and would make my mom open it for me.
I barely knew him, but I suspect I must've had some weird dream that led to that fear. It took about 2 years to get over.
I was always terrified of toilets as a child and believed monsters could come out when you flushed, so I'd get as far out of the cubicle as I could while still in reach to flush, and then hurtle out of there as fast as possible so the monster wouldn't catch me.
I used to think that when I flushed the toilet it would wake up the monster hiding behind the shower curtain. I had until the flush noise stops to wash my hands or the monster would get me.
When I was around 3 or 4, I used to believe that it was bad to sit on the toilet for too long because I thought that burglars were able to get into the house through the sewer system and up into the toilet! I was scared that the longer I sat on the toilet, the more likely it was for a burglar to come up the toilet as I was sitting there and steal me!
When i was about 6 i used to believe that if the toilet stopped flushing before i left the bathroom it would come to life and eat me. i don't know where i got the idea from but when the lock got stuck on the door once and i couldn't get out, i cried and my mother had to come and pick the lock to get me out
I belive- and still to today- that when you flush the toilet a man eating monster is going to come look through the window so I rush out of the toilet when I flush! Im only 11 so this habit is going to go on for a while!!!
when i was about 5 i had this dream that if i didn't leave the bathroom after flushing the toilet a giant bird would smash through the window and eat my dad. I am now 17 and i still believe that...
i used to be scared to use the bathroom becuase i believed something lived in the toilet.
I never watched horror movies so when a friend told me about It grabbing a little boy from inside the toilet I was terrified it would happen to me. The loud flushing public toilets made freaked me out and I would always try and get my hands clean and get out of there before he grabbed me. To make it worse my elementary school had a long gated hallway leading to the bathroom. I used to run down that hall imagining him coming to get me in his demon clown car. Sometimes flushing public toilets still scares me.
I used to believe that when you flushed a toilet, you had until the water level reached the drain pipe to get out of the bathroom before a terrible monster would come out and hurt me. This resulted in me booking it down our hallway every time I pressed the flush. And we're not even going to touch the automatic toilets in public restrooms.
I used to believe that a snake would come out of the toilet and bite my butt... i thought i saw a snake in the toilet and I freaked out........ then i realized somebody pooped in there and didnt flush lol
this is was my daughters belief, when she was about 4 or 5 we were at the airport using the bathroom, when the toilet flushed by itself she asked "mom how did it know to flush?" i explained to her there was an electronic eye that detected motion, well ALL that she heard was "electronic eye" she was convinced there was a person sitting behind the wall looking through the hole to see you get up and then they would flush. she was terrified to use a public bathroom with motion sensors after that.
I used to believe that when I flush the toilet something bad will happen
When I was on a plane I used to believe that toilets would suck you in and you would be released out of the plane. Just the fact that the inside is black and it makes that loud noise it really scared me!
