recalculating

My wife and I just returned from a trip. A fun trip of family visiting and a little sight seeing. It was planned to be just us traveling.

but no 

She had to bring the bitchy GPS lady along. When I use the gadget I mute her (the GPS lady not my wife). We have never given her a name but we should. For now, it will be GPS Gwen.

GPS Gwen doesn't know where this is


She is so bossy and rude. 

More than once during an interesting conversation, GPS Gwen would interrupt with “loss of satellites”. Lady I don’t give a damn about your tracking. 

At our age being interrupted often just kills the conversation because who can remember what they were about to say. 

Good thing I had checked with google maps beforehand because Gwen had the football stadium for our grandson’s game on the wrong side of the highway. Oh she was recalculating on that one for a bit. 

I’m very suspicious of GPS Gwen intentions. She started a fight between my wife and I. She meddled with our dinner decision. 

First GPS Gwen tricks us into believing the restaurant was only 5 miles up the road. After about 4.5 miles we realize she meant 5 miles to the first turn which happened to be in the opposite direction of our final destination for the day.  (starts a fight then keeps me out later) 

We followed along for about 12 miles only to discover that the restaurant probably went out-of-business or didn’t paid their electric bill. We never saw a sign for it. 

I thought of not recharging her after that.

You thought of re-charging her huh, this sounds like electric love, you can never get away from her.  you should feel scared every time you hear her say - recalculating.

thanks

New entertainment for road trips - interesting thought.  Having a common enemy often provides a bonding opportunity.
thanks

My wife still loves to get the free maps from the visitor centers.  I like it when the Michigan one gives out free apples.
thanks

Electric love - oh that reminds of the sixties and Jimi Hendrix.  It's scary when women are calculating and you don't what they are calculating but are sure you will be the next victim.
thanks

electric love is okay but I meant to say electric dreams the 80s movie.
