I will use my GPS

 Meeting with a client at a rural property, I gave him the directions.

Not simple but easy to follow.

He had the address also. 

At the meeting time he calls and is lost.

I am at where my GPS says the place is but it doesn't look like it.

"NO, I am at the place and you are not."

 

I had told him that the GPS would not work.

 

"Go back to the main road and follow my directions."

I can't, I left them home.  I thought the GPS would get me there.

I guess he should have listened to me.  He will next time.

 

GPS does NOT work in many of the rural areas of Minnesota.
