I used to think that our car was special, because it new in advance which direction we would turn.
I would sit and watch the blinking lights in the dash.
If the left one came on, sure enough, we turned left.
Same for the right one.
I had no idea that it was just my Dad turning the indicators on.
When I was a kid we use to travel to my grandmothers house and we had to get on the interstate. well when we got off the interstate my mother would forget to turn off the turn signal in her car and it would beep to remind her. But she told me that the car knew that we were almost there and thats why it beeped. Its sad because I believed her until I was like 13 years old.
I used to believe that cars were really clever because they knew which way you wanted to go and indicated for you.
when i was little i used to think that the turn signal had a mind of its own and would automatically turn on (tick...tick...tick) and direct my mother to drive in certain directions. interesting.
I used to think that the flashing signal arrows on the car dashboard read minds and told my dad where to turn left, and where to turn right.
when i was like 8 i thought that the direction arrows in cars knew what way you were turning, and i would get so confused.
When I was little, I would observe the turn signals on the dash while my parents were driving, and used to wonder how the car somehow knew which direction we were going to turn! It took me a while to realize they pulled the lever on the other side of the steering wheel.
when i was small, about 4 or 5, i used to think that the arrows that flash on the instrument panel when you turn on the turn signals told you where to go when you got lost.
I used to believe that whenever the driver of the car put on his blinkers to turn that the car predicted which way you were going to turn or would tell you which way to turn. For a long time I believed that...
When I was little, I knew that blinkers told the other cars that you were going to turn, but I didn't know exactly how. Of course, I couldn't see the turn lights from inside the car,so I eventually came to the conclusion that other cars heard the little clicking noise that they make when you turned your blinkers on, and that's how they knew.
That turn signals told you how to get somewhere! It wasn't till I was like 10 or 11 that I found out that the driver used a handle to make the arrow point in the direction they needed to go.
When I was little, I used to think that cars could sense when you were going to turn the corner and put the indicator on, I never thought that the driver had to turn them on!
I used to believe that the turn signal turned itself on and off. When my Dad got lost on trips, I'd ask him why he didn't listen to the car.
I used to believe that turn signals started flashing because the car already knew when and where you wanted to turn. So I asked my Great Grandpa how it worked and he told me. And I was really upset because I thought this for a long time
I thought that cars could only make turns when you used the turn signals...
When I was lil'... I used to believe that the car was magic... bc when i asked my parents about how the blinkers worked... they told me that the car was magic and knew where we were goin...
I was very dissapointed when i found out how the car wasn't magic!!! = P
I used to believe that the blinkers knew where you were going so you never turned them on. I also thought for some reason that the windsheild wipers were INSIDE the car, and whenever it was raining i would sit in the very back seat far away from the wipers because i thought that they would chop my hands off if they got too close.
I used to believe that the turn signal on the car magically went on when my parents wanted to turn, and then it magically went off.
Heh, this is pretty silly, but when I was a kid, I always noticed that the signal lights in the van I was always driven around in somehow started blinking a few seconds before my mother turned the van. Naturally, I came to the conclusion that the van knew where to go and kept on blinking those lights to show my mom where to go.
I used to believe that the turn signal in your car would automatically go on whenever you were getting ready to turn. I couldn't figure out how the car knew you were about to turn. I finally concluded that you had to wave your hand to the side of the steering wheel to tell the car that you were going to turn, so it could turn on the little clicker thing. It wasn't until many years later that I realized that when someone was "waving" their hand beside the steering wheel, they were turning on the turn signal!
