When I was around five, I caught a glimps of a scene from a scary movie from the eighties where something came up from a toilet and grabbed the girl sitting on it.

For a very long time I thought that was possible, especially after hearing about snakes turning up in toilets in FL.

I used to believe that if I didn't finish my duties in the bathroom in under 10 seconds (walking in, closing the door, sitting down, using the toilet, grabbing the toilet paper, etc.), something bad would happen. Each time that something bad was different, like something coming out of the toilet, or something popping out from behind the shower curtains.

I used to believe that when you flushed the toilet, you had 5 seconds to get out of the bathroom and onto a piece of furniture, or a monster would come and get you. A few years later, I saw some alien movies and thought if I sat on the toilet too long, an alien hand would reach up and grab me from inside the toilet bowl. Needless to say, I would stare at the water EVERY time I went to the bathroom, just in case I saw something move in there.

When I was little I played soccer and they had a porta potty if the players needed to go. One time when we were leaving I needed to use one and my mom told me to hurry up or the wee-wee grabber would get me. I don't think I've ever gone into one of them since.

When I was little we had a cabinet across from the toilet in our bathroom. I was scared spiders would crawl out from underneath it and bite me, so I always put my feet up on the cabinet every time I used the toilet. To this day I cannot use the toilet without propping my feet up on something.

Up until I was about 10 I used to think that if you didn't close the toilet lid really fast after you flushed a shark would get you!
I'm 16 and I still close them right away.

When I used to go to the toilet, I used to believe that if I did not get to the bottom of the stairs before the noise of the toilet (from the flushing) stopped, a lion would come and get me. My family always wondered why I would run really quickly down the stairs after each visit to the toilet.

When I was a child, I believed that there was a blonde woman in the men's room, which abducted children to the world of ghosts.

When I was in second grade, my friend told me that all the waste in a Port-a-Pottie fermented and then turned acidic if it sat too long. She then told me that if you go pee too hard in a Port-a-Pottie, the acid pee would splash your butt and thats how you get flesh eating diseases. So i never used Port-a-Potties

I used to watch the X-Files, and when I was 8 I saw the one where the monster was hiding in the Port-A-John, and used to bite people when they went to the bathroom.
So up until I turned 25 I would NOT use any port-a-john. I would hold it as long as I could, because I was afraid of that monster.

I used to believe that after you flushed the toilet you released monsters and witches from the sewer so for years I would wash my hands, flush, and then run as fast as I could out of the bathroom slamming the door behind me.

I used to believe that there was a snake hiding in the dark hole of the toilet. It took me a long time to actually sit down on the seat and not hover over it.

When I was little, I used to believe that if I stood too close to an automatic flushing toilet, a monster would come up and drag me down into the pipes.

I used to believe that there were monsters in my toilet when I was a kid. I finally decided one day that they got lost in the sewer and were never seen again.

top belief!

My dad told me that rats lived in the sewers, and some were as big as cats. He told me they would come up when the lights were out and for years I was terrified of going to the loo at night. I thought they would bite my bum :P and I kept getting off the seat just to check they weren't there.

I used to believe that toilets would open and swallow you up because they got dirty!!

When I was a child, our toilet was at the dark end of the house. For some inexplicable reason I thought that a puppet (Loobie Loo) from a popular children's pupet show - Andie Pandie - would grab me if I hadn't gotten away from the toilet before the flush finished.

When i was 6-10 i use to believe that there was some weird sea monster in the toilet so when i flushed i would run out to the hall way but naked and pull my pants up so the monster wouldn't get me.

I used to believe that a hand would come out of the toilet bowl, grab me and pull me into the toilet--so i would try to go to the bathroom as quickly as possible and check it often.
