It turns out though, that a navigation system is only as good as the person trying to follow its directions. Plus the navigation system isn't always right.
So I plug a certain address into the system, thereby instructing the car to take me to said address.
The computerized voice says, "Take the next left."
Sounds simple enough, so I take the next left.
But then the robo-voice commands me to "Make the next possible u-turn."
I take this to mean that I've screwed up royally.
And so we play this game of the nav system recalculating my route and/or telling me to u-turn, until I finally reach my destination.
I think I'll scratch bus or cab driver off my list of potential job opportunities. Maybe the local modeling agency has a market for women 4-foot-10 with glasses.
Oh--guess I better scratch that one off my list, too.
