I used to believe that there were tiny people inside traffic lights, looking at how busy the traffic was, and knowing when to turn it green. I thought how interesting it would be to have that job.

When I was little, I thought that there were little men in the street lights that changed the color of the light. I imagined them as one being tall and skinny and the other being short and fat, and when the street lights were broken, that meant the little men were sick.

When I was little, I used to belive that there were little tiny people that sat inside the traffic signals who would watch the cars in the intersection and decide when to turn the lights to red or green.

When I was little, and stop lights were bigger and boxy, I used to believe that tiny people were operating the lights, and that they had little holes where they could peer out to see which side cars were coming from, and that they would change the lights of the colors accordingly

I used to think that there were little men who lived in stop lights, and they could see outside. To make the lights change, they would look out, see if traffic was safe, and flick switches inside.

I used to think that there were little men in the street lights that would change the light from red to yellow to green. I learned later that this was just a stupid story that my dad made up.

When i was little I used to believe that there were little mice flipping switches in the stoplight, and they would go up ladders to get to the yellow from the green and the red from the yellow etc. I remember telling my mom, and always wondered why she never answered back.

When I was younger, I used to believe that stoplights were controlled by gnomes that lived in the stoplights. They would use different colored flashlights and flick them on and off so that cars could go by.

Some of my friends and neighbours and I were on vacation in New Jersey, and as we were walking down the road to the beach, my friend ever so kindly pointed out that there were midgets who lived in the posts holding the lights up.

I, being the gullible "Pokemon Master", believed her. She then went on to explain how the midgets changed the colour of the lights when there were a lot of people waiting. However, if the midget saw someone they disliked, they would make them wait for a very, VERY long time. And the midgets didn't only live in the poles holding up traffic lights, but the streetlights lining the road as well.

....It's quite pathetic that I believed that, really.
