When I was about 4 years old, my mother told me that if I ran over the electrical cord while vacuuming I'd electrocute myself. I really fell for it, so one day I was over a friend's house and she started to vacuum. I warned her about running over the cord or she'd get electrocuted, and she naturally gave me a look like I was out of my mind. So I was like, "fine, go ahead and electrocute yourself. See if I care...."
