Long story... but when I was 5 my older brother got me to watch Nightmare on Elm st. Wouldn't use the bathroom for 2 years after that. Finally got my courage up (after two years) to take a shower by myself. Not missing the opportunity, my brother hid a walkie talkie close to the shower, waited till I was wet, then said over the walkie talkie in his best freddie crugar voice, "Alex! I'm going to get you." Needless to say it scared the crap out of me, as I streaked about the house screaming for dear life.
