How to get lost in one building — 12 Comments

  1. Hi GD. The diagram looks like a woman attempting to reverse into a parking bay……

    We have institutions over here like that where you would think they belong to MI5 they are that hard to find. Only consultants could come up with something like that, or town planners.

    • Heh!  Men have been divorced or shot [or both] for saying less than that.

      I stick by my theory that the longer people are lost, the more they have to pay in parking fees.  I reckon about €5 of my €7.50 was time spent finding my way around.

  2. I thought you might like this:

    I have a little Satnav, It sits there in my car
    A Satnav is a driver's friend, it tells you where you are.
    I have a little Satnav, I've had it all my life
    It's better than the normal ones, my Satnav is my wife.
    It gives me full instructions, especially how to drive
    "It's sixty k's an hour", it says, "You're doing sixty five".
    It tells me when to stop and start, and when to use the brake
    And tells me that it's never ever, safe to overtake.
    It tells me when a light is red, and when it goes to green
    It seems to know instinctively, just when to intervene.
    It lists the vehicles just in front, and all those to the rear
    And taking this into account, it specifies my gear.
    I'm sure no other driver, has so helpful a device
    For when we leave and lock the car, it still gives its advice.
    It fills me up with counselling, each journey's pretty fraught
    So why don't I exchange it, and get a quieter sort?
    Ah well, you see, it cleans the house, makes sure I'm properly fed
    It washes all my shirts and things, and keeps me warm in bed!
    Despite all these advantages, and my tendency to scoff,
    I only wish that now and then, I could turn the bugger off.



    • Heh! That rings true.  My one even warns me of things I have already avoided.  Wouldn't be too sure about the "cleaning the house" bit though……

      • I was given a "Sat Nag" for a birthday present – it's just an imitation of the real thing, which plays a selection of annoying messages with a female voice.  I'll stick to my AA Roadmap, thank you very much…

        I included an "Irish" themed picture in Friday Funnies – especially for you.

    • A depressing film but a very accurate reflection of the state of mind of a lot of Irish these days.  Actually, the opening sequence in the office looked like it had been filmed in the Beacon – all glass and depressing.

  3. Grandad- Your post eerily reminds me of a reoccurring dream I keep having which, of course, has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that I have spend numerous days/weeks in various huge-ish and confusing VA medical centers from Vermont to Boston, Massachusetts).

    I basically go through everything you wrote about with the exception that when I finally find the parking lot again–my car is not there. And when I go back in and finally manage to find a phone to call my wife, it never works and I end up wandering around this huge medical center until I finally wake up. And no, there's no punch line here. Just sayin'.
