RANT: My Wife and Directions

Andy, please note it does NOT say ERECTIONS.

I just spend 1/2 an hour on the phone trying to get her unlost, after giving her directions, showing her a map, and going over the area where she would be most likely to get confused, and sure as sht she got lost at the area where I told her to look out for. Then she tells me that her uncle told her to take a different way back home, which happens to be the exact way I told her to take home, but of course it wasnt good enough when I told her.

First we let them Vote, then drive, now they wear jeans, and the next thing you know, we'll have a Democrat in the Whitehouse.
Hell in a handbasket I say.

If she had to drive herself she'd never find her way out of Georgetown!

Re: RANT: My Wife and Directions

LOL.

I haven't been able to convince my GF that yelling "there was a spot back there" is NOT USEFUL when you're trying to park at a mall, since you drive forward, and there's usually other cars behind you.

Another classic: "turn...RIGHT HERE!"

Re: RANT: My Wife and Directions

C'est la vie.

I seem to remember a time where I had to quite violently yell out that there was a dump truck coming at us while my ex-girlfriend had her head turned looking for a parking spot. And somehow I was the a-hole for screaming.
And I thought screaming is what you were supposed to do when a very heavy vehicle is heading right at you.

That seems to be a nice solution to the problem at hand. Or just make sure that she never finds the carkeys.

The thing is, if you put a vaccuum in her hand, she can find her way anyplace in the house.
