When I was growing up as a child and would be in the car on the expressway with my parents, I would always be confused and mystified by car-pool parking lots. Since I had no concept of car-pooling, all I saw was random parking lots, in the middle of nowhere, full of cars.
Now I never asked about these lots, I guess I felt like I should have known so i never asked. But for years they mystified me. What were these strange parking lots in the middle of nowhere? And why were there so many cars parked in them?
It wasn’t until i was 13 years old that i found out what they were, and i found out only because they were mentioned by a friend’s mother. I acted like i already knew but inside i was like, “OHHHHHHHH! THAT’S it!”
So what about you? Anything just confuse the hell out of you as a child that was actually a very mundane part of everyday life?
