This absolutely cracked me up. We have two GPS systems – one in our minivan and one in our Buick. The minivan voice is a bit relaxed. Actually, more than a bit relaxed. It sounds like she is about to say “Go down the road a bit. I am going to take a nap. Wake me up when you see the Dunkin’ Donuts.” Our Buick is the opposite – she is demanding and a bit of a task master. And, she is frequently wrong. So, we end up arguing. It’s like what I imagine a bad marriage might be.
So, if this sounds familiar, please check out Bruce Feiler’s New York Times piece. (Bruce has been busy lately.)
