Who Needs Directions? We Have GPS

Setting: the interior of a rental Impala on a snowy morning in a medium-sized Midwestern town

Players: a husband and wife, neither of whom are familiar with the town; and the GPS, whom the husband and wife call Doris, which came with the rental car.

Doris: Turn right on Miami Road.

Wife: There’s the sign. You should turn.

Husband: I’m turning, I’m turning.

Doris: Continue straight on Miami Road.

Wife: There’s the entrance to the school. On the left.

Husband: Doris says go straight.

Wife: That’s the entrance. On the left. There.

Husband: Doris says go straight.

Wife: Well, okay, but we just passed the entrance.

Husband: Maybe there’s another entrance up ahead.

Wife: That was the entrance. Back there. On your left. We just passed it.

Husband: Doris must be broken.

Wife:  You’re right.  Doris probably just didn’t see the entrance sign and the big arrow pointing into the gate.
