After flushing the toilet I would have to run into the next room before it finished flushing.
I was a strange child.
I used to think that when you would flush the toilet that all your pee and poop would go down to this little guy under the toilet and he would make a huge cake out of it and then every so often all of the other toilet cake makers would have a party and vote on who had the best cakes. I tried to make sure I always gave him good ingrediants so my toilet guy would win! lol. i was a weird kid!
I used to ride in airplanes a lot, and when I flushed the toilet it would suck everything in, and I thought it made everything that wasn't attached to the ground or the walls sucked in and fall out the airplane
I was frightend of the '9 o'clock hosses' till I knew what they were. They were the people who came round to empty the toilet bucket. At that time of the night.
My older sister always told me that if I didn't wash my hands with soap after I went to the bathroom, I would die of some pee-related disease. So naturally, I would soap up heavily. Then she tells me that if I didn't get all of the soap off, I would get cancer. Like I didn't have enough to worry about already!
When I was younger i believed that if you diddn't flush the toilet and close the lid then all the stuff in the toilet would then either go on your hands when you washed them or onto your toothbrush when you cleaned your teeth! My older sister had told me about it for a joke as i always used to forget to flush the toilet.
When ever we had spiders(house spiders)we always flushed them down the toilet.Im really sczared of spiders by the way!!!Now when ever i go to the toilet im scared that the spiders are going to come up and bite my butt or something!!!!!
For no reason I can remember when I was really little I believed Santa lived wherever the pipes in the toilet led to. I tried to write a Christmas list on toilet paper and flushed it to send it to him. I felt very sorry for him.
I used to think if you weren't quick enough getting off the airplane toilet seat, you would be flushed down the toilet and out into the air.
Admittedly my Dad had a part to play in that - telling me the toilet waste flies out into the air like it used to do (true) on train toilets - straight on to the track.
When I was in first grade, my family took a vacation to Europe. We took a small 14-or-so passenger plane to get from one place to another, and my parents joked that it was child size. This got me thinking that in Europe they were more considerate to small kids. When we got to France, at the hotel there were two sinks. One was normal size, and the other one next to the toilet. I was so excited that they made kid-size sinks.
My parents later told me that it was a bidet, not used for washing hands.
I used to think that the reason you should not flush the toilet when someone was in the shower was because what you flushed would come out of the shower head!
I used to believe that when you flushed to toiley you were letting it drink the water in the toilet, but pee was better tasting. I thought when the toiley got thirsty it would send messages to your mind telling you to come pee.
I used to belive there was a 'toilet man' and fed him by flushing food down the toilet.
When I was about 6 and my sister was 5, we were at the store with my mom. The women's restroom was out of order, so we were told by an employee to use the men's restroom (it was one of those single-person bathrooms). well, i saw a urinal and my sister and i asked my mom what it was and she said it's a man toilet.....we were trying to figure out how boys/men could get up that high to sit down! lol
i used to sing on the toilet and i also believed that when i leaned forward really far and shut the lid on my back i turned into a bee.
and people think i'm weird nowadays
When my grandson was about 3 he used to believe if he threw up in the toilet he would get rid of his bad attitude.
I used to believe that if you peed in a toilet that already had pee in it then that would produce aids......i remember looking into the toilet that i peed in and thinking "there is definately aids in there"
I used to belive that little people actually lived in the place where the water of the toilet fills up. When someone went to the bathroom and pulled the lever, I imagined that the fisiological needs were sent to the place were the water filled up, and then, the little men would eat what someone had done in the toilet.
I was always convinced that the water tank in our bathroom would kill me, so I'd have to pee and flush the toilet, then run out the bathroom really quickly before it started to growl. Even now at 22, I'm terrified of all tanks that contain water and are raised of the ground. I can't even look inside a toilet cistern!!!
I was told that snakes travelled around in the plumbing and occasionally emerged from the toilet, and sometimes an unfortunate person would be sitting down there at the time.
As a child, I figured three things: One, that this was a ploy to stop me spending so much time in the bathroom; two, that it was hard luck for the snake to have to swim through all that mess, so who could blame it; and three, that it was obviously untrue, because how could a snake breathe underwater?
It was with mixed feelings some years later when I found out that this actually does happen.
