I am going to start sharing some Answer.com articles that I write with you all since many times they are based on or inspired by things I do everyday—in this case, getting lost.
I have written in the past about being lost in my own town if I have to take a new route to a familiar place. I am immediately lost when I walk into Wal-Mart. I get turned around, forget why I am in a certain aisle, and have to watch the signs that are hung up high to find my way around in order to gather the things that I need. This happens EVERY time even though I should know the store very well. To make matters worse, I NEVER remember where I parked my darn car, and whined up roaming the parking lot looking for it with a cart full of groceries and screaming kids in tow; not fun!
I also wrote about place-blindness in my book when I described my being lost in the halls at middle school, and on the campus of my university. Although I did not have a name for it then, it is obvious to me now, that I have some degree of place-blindness.
Anyone else get lost in your own backyard?
