My GPS Must Hate Me

When I’m not working, I like to explore the local area…

Our current location is in the middle of Amish farm country, so just going to the local farm stand can take me to parts unknown! Especially if I decide to take the scenic route!

It’s on these outings, that I like to use my GPS. This way, if I do get lost, I can find my way back to the campground!

However… I swear it sounds like she gets mad at me when I don’t follow her instructions to the letter! But sometimes, she wants to take me down a road I’ve already seen and know where it leads!

I want to see something new!

She doesn’t seem to appreciate my curiosity of the unknown!

My GPS seems to get especially terse with me, after I have ignored the directions for the third time to go one way, and I’ve chosen to go the opposite!

By the 5th time, she sounds exasperated to the fact that I don’t listen to her advise… and eventually she starts to sound like she’s resigned to the fact that I’m not going to follow her directions!

However, our goals are different. My GPS goal is to get me back home. My goal is to explore the local area!

If I listened to her directions all the time, then I would never have found this beautiful old barn… I obsessed with old barns!


Or these beautiful creatures grazing in a field…


But when I finally do decide it’s time to head home, I am certain that she sounds delighted! At least that’s what it sounds like to me!

Let’s see where the road takes us next!

Until then,

Peace, love and safe travels!
