i got a call once from a co-worker "help, i got lost." ok, sez I, where are you... "in a home depot parking lot..."Kids these days rant:
My SIL and her BF stayed at our house from when their break started until Christmas morning, then drove to his house in NW Indiana. Once you get on 55, it is literally three turns to his parent's driveway. They got lost. A couple times. She has a smart phone and they wrote down directions.
Now, they're on their way back for the weekend (yay...) before classes start on Monday. He got a GPS for Christmas and they're *still* having navigational issues.
Ohmygod, how does this happen? Three turns! Don't turn until you're supposed to! In my day, we had to print out Mapquest directions or *gasp* look at an atlas...
yes, i had to ask a few questions to find out WHICH BLOODY HD PARKING LOT and then tell her basically, turn the f around and get back on the highway. Her stupid GPS took her off of 55 to the buisiness loop and back on out the SW corner of the Bloomington Normal Metroplex instead of staying on 55 and going around.
and she had driven to BN several times, and also to the city she was realy headed to before... Ugh, i hate it when she has to go anywhere like that.
