paranoid about theft? In Kenya we'd always sit at a table with a good view of the car.

It's been like that since the 60's and 70's when I was growing up. I guess back then people might have been trying to be discreet (specially teenage girls didn't want to be seen by parents or relatives etc..). Now? who knows? Definitely not about safety of the car. Young kids trying to empress their friends with daddy's new BMW? Maybe.

I agree with Mike. That way they can hide their boyfriends or girlfriends. :)

I talked to a couple of friends last night about this and they agreed: whether with pals or GF/BF, it's hard to get any privacy when you live with your parents. The car makes a private environment where one can talk about private or controversial issues. Now I get it.

But I have seen middle-aged men in cars in front of cafes. Are they on the d/l?

They really need a sonic in this town...

Maybe the middle-aged guys hang out in their cars alone for the same reason my Uncles always went fishing in the US: to get away from their wives and kids for an hour or two?
