Girls Write Out
Tuesday, March 17, 2009

Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction. Actually, it's USUALLY stranger than fiction. If I wrote this story in a book, no one would believe it. I mean would YOU believe a man would follow a GPS for five days on a trip that took seven hours? Here's the link:

The gist of the story is that Ryan O'Donnell left VT to visit his girlfriend in PA. This was normally a 5 hr trip. He ended up driving clear to Montana over FIVE DAYS and was found out of gas and dehydrated along the road. When asked why he followed the GPS directions for so long, he said the GPS had never steered him wrong before. LOL

Okay, here's my advice for his girlfriend Izzie. Break up. Now. I fear for your future if you marry him.

Your turn. What's your advice for Izzie?

That is very funny! Perhaps she should have gone to AAA and got him a Triptik :-)

Oh my goodness, that is sooooo ME!!!!!! I will NEVER use one of those things! Give me a map, and I'm fine, but if it tells me wrong and I have to follow my instincts, I'm a goner!

Poor, poor guy. I feel his pain!!

Oh you SO can't possibly feel sorry for him, Di. FIVE DAYS!!! There's no way a woman would do that. We'd stop at a gas station and ask directions! LOL

Um, I really hope you all know its satire :)

Clues: 1. Really, sometimes these navigational systems know about traffic problems, accidents, and nuclear attacks.

2. When asked about this, and why the screen showed the "distance to destination" in Egyptian hieroglyphics, Mr. O'Donnell would not comment.

3. Special thanks again to AZ for inspiration.

But if it really did happen... "Run, Izzie, run!"

Izzie, get your man a map! Oh, and exchange his car with a GPS for a vehicle that doesn't have one. (Though maybe this whole GPS thing is a sign that he'll follow whatever his wife says, even if its weird.)

And Colleen, for the record, I'd probably never get up the nerve to ask for directions in a gas station.

Too funny. I'm inept when it comes to directions. I'm always SO SURE I know where I'm going, Lol... BUT I'd ask for directions on that first potty break :)

Oh my gosh, that is HYSTERICAL. I laughed out loud. Well, if she's the controlling type, he does what he's told. That could be good. LOL

Ummm... if my dh was "missing" becuase he was blindly following his GPS to Montana, then I would question whether he was following his GPS or just wanted to go to Montana! :)
Can't believe he didn't at least call her and say he was going to be late :)
