As a kid, here are some things when I was growing up that I never knew would be such a part of my life: 1. Worrying about dropping the phone in the toilet. Why would you have a phone in the bathroom? The kitchen phone cord never reached all the way to the bathroom. Even if you did, a new phone was a few bucks. 2. Worrying that my phone was keeping track of my every move and giving away my sensitive info. At the time, only the tin foil hat crowd would worry about this kind of surveillance or information abuse. Now my wallet is RFID-protected and my phone is fingerprint locked, and that makes perfect sense to everyone. 3. Seat belts, car seats, kid seats, boosters, etc. All we had at the time was scissor-style strollers in the trunk. I sat on the console for a better view back then unless I was napping in the "way-back" of a stationwagon. As for boosters, those were the kid seats at Denny's. What about you? What did you never envision about today's norms?
