GPS mishaps

( ok, maybe this will wind up in another forum.. only the shadow knows for sure )

Some of you ( sick minded people ) will enjoy this…

We’ve all heard stories of mishaps with GPS haven’t we? Recently I had occasion to use the “Tom-Tom” on my phone in order to find a tiny English village, and more importantly the pub that we were told was just beyond the village.

The Tom-Tom worked fine and we found the pub with no problem, So I shut off the car, tossed the phone in my pocket and proceeded into the pub.

Walked into the pub ordered a pint... no problem.

I decided to excuse myself to the men’s... no problem

Found a nice comfy seat in the ‘loo and got settled in to think about the worlds problems… no problem.

At just about this point a loud (English btw) female voice commanded from my pocket “TURN AROUND NOW!” problem!!



Two other guys that were also in the ‘loo bounded for the door.

"You have reached your destination" would have been much better suited
( but not as funny )

Yes, especially since I don't own a car. Also, real men don't need a GPS tinker toy anyhoo....I'm oldschool ya know, I still navigate by wind, stars and roadmaps.
