Losing Faith in a Trusted Friend

Dear Jack,

We've had a good a run.  I found your voice quite sexy.  I enjoyed the accent.  Such a nice change from that American woman whose voice went all digital every time she said "north."  But now you've lost my trust.  That's right, I don't trust you.  Worse, I question your skills of discernment and differentiation.  Let me illustrate.  I went from this:
to this:
Do you see the problem here, Jack?  Not only that, but I was driving along when you suddenly told me to turn here:
I really wanted to, I love the foliage but, as you can see, the road you indicated is lacking.  You recalculated and told me to turn on a second road.  I saw a hint of it, but it didn't look well traveled.  You can't expect me to be Robert Frost.  Not right then.  I was late and lost.  I let my guard down and that's when I trusted you. 

Thank you for the scenic route. I was already enjoying the scenery.

Fortunately, I've grown accustomed to your presence. Your companionship makes me feel big, powerful and all-seeing.

Next time, let's stick to paved roads, thank you very much.

Oh no! LOL I hate when we rely so much on technology and it totally fails us!! I especially hate when I'm lost AND late.

Thanks so much for linking up!!

Ha ha! Too funny! I mean, now that you are not lost anymore. You aren't still lost, are you?

Oh no!!! You got some gorgeous scenery there, but I'm sorry about the misdirection!

I was driving my mom batty on our trip to Colorado - trusting my laptop and WiFi more than the silly little GPS in the rental car.

Guess who was right? :)

I've never used GPS in my life! It sort of scares me.

Until I glanced at Kristina's comment, I thought I was the only person on the planet who doesn't use GPS

Just got back from California and used our GPS constantly. We name her Lulu and she has never steered us wrong excpet when we were in San Francisco and she lost satellite coverage. Sometimes we doubt her, but she is always right.
