Traveling Tips: Do Men Ask For Directions?

Rick Scibelli/Getty Images News

 

So… you’re on a road trip, you get lost, the GPS isn’t working…. Do you stop and ask for directions, or do you keep on driving?

Do you have any ‘GETTING LOST’ stories? If you do… now’s the time to regale us with them.

According to every female magazine article ever written…..

His And Hers Road Trips

HERS:

Pulls off at wrong exit.
Opens window.
Asks directions from a knowledgeable police officer.
Arrives at destination presently.

HIS:

Pulls off at wrong exit absolutely positive it’s the correct one.
Drives five miles into wilderness, still thinks he’s right.
Drives an extra 5 miles just in case.
Finally rolls down window just to get fresh air.
Pulls up to a 7 -11.
Gets three hot-dogs, a large slurpee, and beef jerky.
Asks person behind counter how to get back onto the highway.
Gets back into car.
Laughs at the idea of looking at a map as he pulls away from the 7-11.
Drives down a dirt road with no street lights insisting this is the way back because guy from 7-11 said it was.
Almost hits a deer.
Curses the night.
Curses you.
Curses the large slurpee.
Drives and fiddles with radio.
Yells at you for suggesting the map again.
Admits he didn’t want to go to Thanksgiving at your sister’s anyway.
He hates your sister.
Ever since she called him a pernicious weasel.
He had to look up pernicious.
Couldn’t find a dictionary.
Finally found a dictionary.
Couldn’t spell pernicious.
Seethes at the memory of it all.
But she is laughing inside..
And of course you’re still lost.

I don’t agree with this at all because I think most guys would stop and ask for directions. Do you agree with me??
