Directions


You know what kills me? When someone gives your their address and then proceeds to tell you turn by turn exactly how to get there.
When was the last time you were in a car that didn’t have navigation or with someone that didn’t have a smart phone? While I’m sure you’re better at directing me to your house or office than map quest or my gps, save it, I’ll take my chances.
Now I completely understand if you have some crazy hidden home and you have set up landmarks, like turn after the white tire or something of the sort, but as far as I’m concerned, there’s no need for it otherwise.
It’s always the people that want to give you every detail of their entire day and tell you how things go together and fall apart that want to give turn by turn directions from anywhere in the world to their apparently very obscure location. Which of course makes it that much harder to say, “oh no, I’m good, I’ll just use my navigation, thanks though.” I can’t ever quite squeeze that sentence out without feeling like I’m really saying “um, I’m not an idiot, I can figure it out, I’d rather get lost than listen to you for one more second.” TOTAL. BITCH.
I wonder if at any point in the future technology will be welcomed by all and people will no longer do this because every knows you just put it into the navi…? I. Hope. So.
