    It's been found that certain groups of people, which I won't name for fear of seeming sexist, generally orient a pathway with turns (left or right) and landmarks (the Taco Bell), while the other group generally orients by compass points (north, west) and distance. (Vive la différence!) When you try to satisfy both systems, you often wind up with a confusing mess, though the worst by far is the list Google generates for directions.

    I always wave off attempts to give me directions, and say, "Tell me where it is, not how to get there."

      Some people "get it", but I get lost going across the street.  Directions and maps help a bit, but Garmin is the real solution.  They used to be around $400, but I bought one and ate Mac n Cheese, hot dogs, peanut butter and Ramen for a long time to pay for it.  I have no regrets.

      I did find that satellite view on Google helps with an overall comprehension of my final destination when it's an overpass and not a place with it's own address (helps figure out where to park, too).

      There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
