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!
When I went to my friends house they would have blue water in the toilet. I used to believe that it was the same thing as the pink goo from ghost busters!
I used to believe that toilets were haunted
when i was a kid i was scared of sitting in the western style of loo coz i believed that one day a snake might come from the hole and bite me on my bums..!!!

When we were little my friend and I made up a story about a scary creature that lives in the toilet and would bite your bum if you would stay on it too long. We called it the 'Bum-biter'. I actually started to believe in its existence and was very scared to go to the bathroom after that. I was allready in highschool when I stopped believing in it.
I used to believe that when you went to the toilet at night you were in danger of turtles jumping up and biting your bum..
When I was little my dad told me and my brothers that if we sat on the toilet for too long our intestants would fall out. I was terrified for years this was going to happen so I was race away from the toilet after finishing my business.
I used to believe that when you flushed the toilet, monsters would chase after you so I would run out of the bathroom as soon as I flushed.
When automatic toilets became common, I was still a little girl. I would always freak out when I had to use an automatic flushing toilet because I thought it was going to suck me into the toilet, and a vicious animal, like a shark or an alligator, was going to eat me. This made me terrified of public restrooms, especially the ones with those types of toilets. Until I was about 15, I dreaded using public restrooms, even though I knew better. Now , I'm just afraid I'm going to drop something into the toilet.
When i was little i used to think that when i went to the restroom snakes would come out of my toilet and eat me.eww
I used to be so afraid of the toilet because when I was little I believed that frogs were waiting in the toliet to lick you clean when you've finished your business. When I became an adult and an ACTUAL frog was in my toilet, I had a panic attack (clinging to my husband in fear "it's true? I thought I made that up...")
When I was little I believed that if I was near a toilet when it flushed I would be flushed too. I spent most of elementary school running out of the bathroom after flushing.
I used to believe that there was a control room behind every bathroom that had automatic toilets. People sat in there watching on TVs for people to finish using the bathroom and they would push the button to flush it from the control room. I was creeped out by this idea that I refused to use those kinds of toilets until I found out it was only a sensor.
When I was young, i believed my brother's tale of the gremlins in the toilet. He used to tell me that if i didnt put the toilet lid down BEFORE i flushed the toilet, that the gremlin would jump up and bite my tush. I still find myself lowering the lid, and for a very long time, i would run after flushing the toilet in public restrooms.
In the movie "Finding Nemo" there is one line i took way to seriously...."all drains lead back to the ocean" until about fourth grade i was convinced alligators and sharks lived under the bathtub and toilet and when you flushed the toilet or drained the bathtub the flushing/water draining sound was them growling at me.
I used to believe that when you go poop a snake might come out of the toilet and bite your butt.
