The only information I needed was "which exit do I take?" This is not difficult - you just have to tell me what number or what name the exit has. I was told to take the Syracuse exit. Such an exit does not exist. It says "Syracuse" on one of the side exit signs, which I could not see. The main exit reads "Antelope Drive." Hmm. So, needless to say, I passed the correct exit and called in a frenzy because I knew I was speeding towards "too far away." Phone call went as follows:
Me: I think I went too far. There isn't an exit that says "Syracuse."
Tom (distracted): Uh, you missed it? Where are you now?
Me: I know I went too far...
Tom: Let me get Alejandro.
Me: I missed the exit - which one should I take now?
Alejandro: Um, let me get my wife.
Oh my God - People - I am driving on the freeway at 75 mph! We must make quick decisions. It's not like I can just "pull over real quick" and wait for you to tell me where to go. Grrr. I hate nothing more than people who do not know where they live or how to tell people how to get to where they live. Of course, I stupidly forgot that my fabulous iPhone has GPS. I should have just asked for their address, plugged it into my phone, and followed its simple no-fail instructions.
Note to self: save yourself grief and rely on yourself.
