Things I don't understand.

I must be damn awful at giving directions. I mean, it seems that people just can't follow them! Even if I am giving crazy details like "look for THIS", no, people get pissy that my directions are HORRIBLE. WTF.

You know you are going from point A to point B, WHY for the love of ham, are you going to stop at point A.5 and then get pissy about "well I didn't know because blahblahblah".

I say in my directions, go this way, UNTIL x. Not go this way oh hey there is X, but I am not where you said I should be, and I went that way and IT'S ALL YOUR FAULT.

No? I told you directions, a, b, c. Not a, b, s, c. I mean, have you passed these important landmarks? No? Then why is it my fault that you can't follow directions?

What is so hard about "stay on this road to this city". You know you are trying to go to city P, I've already said "follow this sign that says cities Q,R,P", what is hard to follow about A BIG HONKING SIGN? You know you are going to city P, why would you stop before city P when you see a sign that says "city P, n miles"? Doesn't the sign tell you that you are not near your destination? Am I supposed to read for you as well?

I've said take exit U on road W, you see exit U. Are you on road W? No? Then this is not your exit U. It is not my fault that you see exit U and go "oh I am confused", because somehow you left out the steps inbetween to put you on road W before taking exit U.

Sheesh. I try to make my directions damn simple to follow, and yet people still manage to get lost/confused. FFS, what do I need to do, teleport to the person driving and hold their hand the whole way?

This is why I hate giving people directions. I don't think I can make them any clearer, and yet there's always some sort of bellyaching about oh this, oh that, do I do this? Did I say do that? No? DON'T DO IT!

These must be the same people that go to the Dr. and say "Doc, it hurts when I do this!", and the Dr. replies "well don't do that!".

I could understand if I said "go on this road, go on this road, turn at this third light", and gave no... extra details. But seriously, when I give directions, I say "you will pass these things. Turn on this road, by this thing, across from that thing. look for this, you will know you are going the right way. Follow the road. don't turn. get into x lane when you see y" I don't know how much more detailed I can get!
