In my opinion when men drive to a destination they use things like street names, highway numbers, mileage, things like that. A guy giving a guy directions.
Guy#1=How do I get to the UC Clinic?
Guy#2=Ok, you’re on GB so go down about ¼ mile and turn right on 50, down about 1 mile past 75th, turn left, big building on the right.
Well, I had to use my cell phone to call a doctors office to see how to get there. I had never been to this place before and I was lost and it was raining. Here is our conversation, as
best as I can remember.
Her=This is United Care Clinic, how may I help you?
Me=I have an appointment there but I seem to be lost. I’ve never been there before. Could you give me directions?
Her=Sure, where are you?
Green Bay Road.
Her=OH, yea, I can help you. Are you by any sign posts?
Me=No, I just passed the “Hu Hot” restaurant though.
Her=Yes, I’ve heard that is a good restaurant if you like spicy food.
Me=Yes it is spicy I went there for my BIL birthday dinner. Knocked my socks off with the heat!
Her=I’ve got to try that place soon. OK, so you’ve passed the “Hu Hot” and you should be near the lights and you should see the new Walgreens on the corner.
Me=Yes, there it is to the left. Did we really need another Walgreens, there are so many already?
Her=I totally agree. OK, don’t go that way, go to the right past the new little pond on the corner.
Me=Oh, yes, it is cute isn’t it.
Her=Yes, I’ve been watching as they completed it. So nice.
Me=OK, I’ve turned right.
Her=Good, now get in the left lane, not the far left though because that takes you into the shopping center. Just the middle left.
Me=Ok, I’m in the lane now. I’ll have to stop and do some shopping after my appointment.
Her= Yes, try the new spice shop, it is great. Now go down, 1,,2,,no, 3 lights, then get in the far left lane and turn left and you’ll see our building. It is the tall brown one on the
right. Go into main door, the one with the flowers outside, not the plain one to the side. Elevators are to the left. Take the far left one, it is faster. Go to 2nd floor, take a left out past the big glass window on the side that has the Palm Tree
and keep to your right around a maze and there we are!
Me=Thanks much, I’ll be right there.
Her=No problem, we’re not going anywhere. You should stop in the gift shop they have so many cute things. See you soon.
Me= I will stop by the shop on my way out. Bye.
Now, can any of you imagine a man having a conversation like this? I mean, really. Isn’t this a much nicer way of getting information about someplace? BTW, the new Dr. is very nice. I
think her and I are going to get along fine. I know the girl in the office and I already get along!
