Where is my compass...

One of my guy friends was trying to give me directions on how to get to his new office for a visit. He told me to go northwest and then make a right...blah blah blah. Pretty much he lost me at "northwest". Okay buddy, let me go out onto the street and pull out my compass. What human (non-male) automatically knows where North is wherever they are?

Had he told me to turn right at the driveway, left at the second stoplight, and then right after the fountain. I would be good to go.

I know men and women understand and think of things differently.

I think Tine put it best, "Women use landmarks. And men...men are just weird."

Hey, I use landmarks, and I'm a guy. But maybe I'm just weird. So Tine is both right and not. Now I'm confused.

Hey! Whaddaya mean "...men are just weird"? I resemble that remark!! As for giving directions... you see the secret is placing the map on the ground and stepping INTO the map to get your bearings!! Always look for the spot that says You Are Here... it never fails! ;)

I guess Graham assumes one has a GPS wherever one goes. While this is the case for me, it is not for everyone else in the world.
