I have had a rough couple days with trying to get out of certain cities and driving through others. I think I know where I am going but I end up listening to my rand mcnally who is NOT ALL KNOWING. I just seem to have the gremlin taking me the wrong direction and the wrong freeway and figure it out a little too late. New Jersey was a nightmare and I ended up on freeways I shouldn’t be on. Finally ended up on a side road. To the right was bridges that I couldn’t get under and on the left streets that were too small for my truck. I finally found a place to turn around and was trying to be polite when Craig says you just have to go. No one is going to let you in. By the time I made it to the freeway I should have been on an hour ago I was shaking. But made it without taking out any light poles or NJ drivers.
Then today I am mozing along the 70 on my way through Missouri/Kansas and somehow I missed my turn off. Now I had looked but didn’t realize that I had already passed my turn. My rand mcnally was taking me the shortest route which was not the way I was suppose to go. Of course my husband wakes up wants to know why I didn’t get off where I should. I am trying to explain it is the computers fault but the bottom line is I am the professional driver and I need to pay closer attention to certain cities.
I guess the moral of this story is I NEED A MAP. I can’t just assume the GPS is going to take me the correct way. Sometimes there is a gremlin living in it and he is NOT a nice gremlin. I can admit when I am wrong. I usually don’t have trouble but lately I am jinxed. I see a map in a lot of my future.
UGH is all I have to say in a very disgusted voice!!!!!!!
