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.
When I was four my dad and much older brother took me to see Men in Black at the cinemas, and when the shop bloke has his head blown off and grew it back, I became terrified of flushing the toilet incase he grew out of it (I was v.young!). My mum went mad when she realised :D I still get scared flushing the loo now!
I used to believe that flushing the toilet awoke monsters underneath the bathroom sink. Every time I went to the bathroom I would wait until the VERY last second and then quickly flush and run away.
I used to believe, that a devil will get me, when i stay too long on the toilet and he will break through the ground or the wall. so every hair on the surface gave me the creeps, cause I thought that are the first cracks. I still feel a little uncomfortable in toilets with closed doors.
When I was a little girl, my older brother told me that Oscar the Grouch lived in toilets and he would attack at random moments. I tried extra hard to pee without touching the seat for a few years...
after my grandmother let me watch "The Blob," I was convinced that any time I used the bathroom I was in eminent danger. I thought the blob was going to come up through the toilet and get me. I don't remember if anything like this ever happened in the movie, but for years and years I would never sit down completely on the toilet seat, or I would look down into it while going to the bathroom, just to make sure!
When I was very small I really used to belief the airplanes' toilets released the crap in mid air, like pidgeons. Back then I was very afraid of planes overflying me...
I overheard a friend of my grandmothers talking about her hemorrhoids and how horrible and painful they were. Later I asked my grandmother what hemorrhoids were and she said “they happen when you spend too much time on the potty”. For a good three years I was afraid of the toilet.
At the zoo near where I live they had this black widow spider that lived in a closed toilet, I was young but my parents still told me it was poisonous, and I swear to God one time it wasn't there! For months I had to check every time I went to the toilet!
I used to believe that when you flushed the toilet, there was a guy behind the toilet and reached up and grabbed the bowel stuff.... for the longest time as soon as i flushed the toilet I would run out of the bathroom so he couldn't grab me by accident!
one time when i was 4 there was a roach in the toilet n ever sence i was 7 i would look i nthe toilet before i sit down sumtimes i look now in then u can never be to sure
I used to believe that motion-sensored toilets were in fact live-feed camera that were remotely-controlled by someone. The controller would then remotely flush the toilet when he/she saw that person was done using the toilet. Obviously, I would feel embarrased using a public restroom knowing that someone was watching me as I went to the bathroom.
For years my brother simply refused to use the toilet and no-one knew why. Whenever we went on trips he would say he didn't need to go and then Mum would find him sqatting in a park garden! It was only when he was about nineteen that we finally discovered that it was our Aunt's fault - at my grandparents house there was a frog in the toilet and she had warned him that it might jump up and bite his bum, thus instilling a crippling fear of toilets in my young, trusting brother.
I used to think that a snake would come out from the tiolet and bite me. So before I'd sit down I would take a little glance inside.
i have no idea why but i used to believe that if you flushed the toilet and stood there the toilet would flush out part of your soul so every time i flushed the toilet i would run away :)
the odd thing is i still do
My aunt had me convinced for years that there was a toilet monster that would bite my ass and pull me through the toilet if i took to long to go. I was the fastest pee-er, especially at night. I don't think even she knows how long I was nervous about getting my ass bitten.
After watching Gremlins as a kid and seeing the part where the Gremlin comes up the Tiolet while a man was sitting on it I have forever since had problems sitting on toilets! I am now 26 and still have horrible thoughts that one will come and bite my ass!
I used to believe that when you went to the bathroom there was a man waiting in the toilet with a gun waiting to soot your butt. If you didn't hurry up and pee he would shoot you! He Hated pee so after you peed you had 10 sec. to get out or else your dead!
To this day I hate to admit sometimes I'm still freaked out.
When I was 4 or 5 I thought Gargamel (evil guy on the Smurfs) lived under my toilet...
When I was like 5 or 7 i thought that in public bathrooms while you went to the bathroom ghosts would surround your stall, and when you flushed it they would rush up and take you away (i'm not sure where). So always used to unlock the stall door before i flushed, not flush, or (rarely) not lock the door!
