I’m A Dumbass Geek

everyone who knows me knows that i heart anything tech/geek/nerd. i find technology easy (so far). but my brain forgot stuff.

i had to go to the big city. entered the address into my gps and off i went. should have taken about 20 minutes, but they shut down the major interstate (in the area i needed to exit at on i-40) and i never updated my gps unit. it’s free to upgrade and only takes a few minutes to do, but it had been a year since i remembered to do it. so, of course, it didn’t know about the interstate detours and kept sending me in figure 8’s until i realized that i was “groundhog day” movie driving.

thought i could find it on my own, but ended up behind a wardrobe in narnia, somehow.

never once dawned on me that my high-priced, state of the art, smartphone, had gps on it. never crossed my mind.

asked directions 4 times until someone got it right. half a tank of gas later, i arrived.

then i had to go back home, but i was lucky to have once been in that area before and knew a side road home.

live and learn.
