Panel 3 is fantastic!! :)
In my run-down hometown, businesses are so short-lived that we only give directions by where landmarks USED TO be. For instance, if someone asked me where the Dunkin' Donuts was, I'd have to tell him, in 100% seriousness, "In the old Rax building, across the street from the Verizon store that used to be a Dunkin' Donuts."
I love the 4th panel. As a cashier in a small town off a major highway, I quite frequently walk away after giving directions thinking "they're never going to get there".
lmao Blanketgirl, that gave me a giggle.
this is classic. everyone has a different way of giving directions so you can hardly ever be effective.
I once gave completely random, yet plausible sounding, directions to some woman in an over sized Hummer. I was visiting a friend in California (I live in Illinois) and was putting my shopping cart away into the cart corral when she stopped me. She must have assumed I worked there due to me wearing black jeans and a white t-shirt, but when I told her I was from out of state she didn't believe me and kept asking me how to get to some shoe store. So, I told her to head down the street we were on for about 3 miles, then make a left at the street with the gas station. After 4 short blocks, make a right by the convenience store, then pull in when you see the McDonalds.
I hope she ended up lost in the ghettos of LA.
best. comic. ever.
4th Panel...This also lends to pick-up football in junior high as Bill Cosby describes..."OK, so you're the bottle cap...""No, no...I wanna be the piece of glass!"
"And there was always this fat kid that asked 'What about me?' 'Hey, you go long!'"
