I used to think whenever you flushed the toilet the toilet monster would chase me!!! And I would run every time I flushed. But when I was eight I realized there wasn't a toilet monster!!!

up until i was about 10 i was afraid to flush the toilet
i was CONVINCED there was a monster that would pop out the second i flushed it and grab me and pull me back in with him
that roaring noise you hear when the water is sucked down..that's him growling on his way to come and get you
so i used to wash my hands BEFORE flushing the toilet.
flush it and run like hell to my room before he could get me

When I was about 7 my babysitter told me that if I flushed the toilet at midnight on a full moon, the mustard monster would come out and drag me into the toilet...I believed her until I was probably 10, when I got the chance to flush at midnight on the full moon.

I once had a toilet that ALWAYS flooded, so my family got a new one. I always thought it'd still flood, so I'd NEVER flush.

I used to think that a "Freddy" hand would come out of the toilet and kill me. It made going to the restroom a tedious task of getting just close enough but not to close.

when I was about 6 I saw the movie Steven King's It. So after I saw that movie i was scared to death. So, I would always inspect the shower, sink, toilet and any other place before I peed. When I was peeingi would always stand and watch (even tho im a girl)

I'm not sure where they originated, but when I was little I had a couple fears of the toilet. The first one I think came from partially noticing something playing on tv, but I thought the toilet would wait until I sat down and then suck me in and eat me, with the lid kind of making a mouth.

Another time I was convinced that there was a snake living down the toilet drain that would pop out once I was seated and couldn't see it. Sometimes the snake blended in with the hungry toilet idea and became a kind of tongue.

... Needless to say, I made a habit of going up to my mom and casually asking if she'd used the toilet each day, to make sure it wasn't in a hungry mood and that the snake wasn't around.

I used to believe that if you flushed the toilet, a monster would come up and eat me.
I got in trouble countless times for "forgetting" to flush.
Or I'd stand as far away from the toilet as I could before flushing, and if I made it onto my bed in time, my life would be spared.

When i being potty-trained, my parents told me that if i missed the toilet, a snake would pop up and bite my weiner off. I believed it for about a year till i finally missed the toilet. I was horrified for a few minutes.

When I was very young, I thought that the little red sensors in automatic toilets were cameras taking pictures of people's behinds.

I had an older brother who watched MTV all the time when I was growing up in the early 80's. I saw a video with an alligator coming out of the toliet and it terrified me. I would use the potty and then run out as soon as I was done so the alligator wouldn't bite my booty.

I don't know why. But I always ran away screaming after the toilet flushed.

in school some of the girls never went to the bathroom at school.(i learned later they had like a fear of public toliets or something.) back then i thought they done something to make the toilets mad and if they went in that the toilets would eat them. kinda like a toilet mob.

When I was the toilet I used to shake my head sometimes, because there was a ghost who counted the hair, If the ghost finished counting, the person in the toilet would die. So whenever I remember the story I shook my head badly.

When i was little i believed that if you still were sitting on the toilet seat when it flushed you would be grabbed by a monster that was in the sewers and you would die.

When I was in the toilet I used to shake my head. because there was story about the ghost who counted the hairs in the toilet. If the ghost finished the counting the person would die. So Before finishing the counting the person had to shake his/her head not to count.

When i was little my Gawgy(grandma) would take me to the bathroom and she said one time to not stay in the bathroom long after you flushed because germs fly into the air( not your everyday granma) so a week or so later i was in the bathroom with her and i flushed the toilet and we couldnt open the door easily and i started screaming "Gawgy gawgy get me out of here they are going to get me!" and there were other ladies in there

When I was little I saw "looks who's talking" and there was a scene where the toilet turned evil and looked at the little boy and said "give me your peepee" that was around the time I was potty trained and i believed thats what toilets did. it scared the crap out of me so bad that my parents had to put the baby potty in the kitchen.

When I was three, my mom would have to wipe my butt because I couldn't reach. One day, when my mom went to work, and my dad was asleep, I had to go poop really bad, so I just decided to go on my own. As I sat on the toilet, I felt a little bump hitting my butt. I looked down and wondered where it was coming from. It hit me again. I started thinking (really ranodmly), and I thought that little mini people were shooting arrows at my butt. I never found out what that hitting was... but I betcha it was just a bug. Omg! That is still really gross, but whatever!!
