In the past when my husband and I would visit a place for the first time we would frequently have this conversation (Me=me, and H=Husband–for you slow ones).
Me: Do you know how to get there?
H: More or less
Me: Did you print out the directions?
H: I know the area
Two hours later
H: This can’t be right
Me: I thought you knew how to get there?
H: Could you pull out the map?
Me: Can’t we just ask that man over there?
H: If I just look at the map for a second I’ll figure it out.
15 minutes later
H: We are almost there–I think–I’m going to ask this guy if he knows where it is…
Me: #$&***! BAM! POW! SPLATT! KAPOW!
Now when we visit a new place:
Me: I printed out directions on Mapquest
H: I looked on Microsoft Live Search with 3D technology
Me: You need to turn here
H: Oh, I know, I know. That must be that strange looking building I saw online. There should be a stoplight, then a stop sign followed by a McDonald’s, a dog, a homeless person and a green house for sale, and then we turn left. You see that house — I think that’s the one with the pool and the treehouse in the big back yard. We should be there in 4.5 seconds unless I miscalculated…
