How many does it take? (6/31)

6 of 31 - SOLSC 2019

"Kristi knows where you are going," the head of facilities tells the driver, as I join the other teachers. 

I don't, actually, but Google Maps does. I open the app, type in the name of the school hosting the PD event, press 'start', and hand the phone to one of the gentlemen at the front of the bus.

We don't have just one bus driver, rather three. One is driving us there now. The other two are along for the ride to see where they need to pick teachers up at the end of the day. 

Before relinquishing my phone, which is what the feeling turns into as I realize that the small bit of work I had planned to do on the 17 minutes Google Maps had predicted for our route, won't be happening.

We teachers chat about this and that as we wind our way through Dammam. Turning back towards the front of the bus I notice that instead of following the directions Google is giving, the three of them are in a heated discussion - passing my phone around; zooming in and out on the screen.

This is when I wondered, "How many male drivers does it take to follow the directions they have in front of them?!"


  1. I so love the imagery in this funny...and so so true!!

  2. Oh my goodness! I love this funny slice. Thanks for the read.

  3. Haha! This reminded me of my parents. They type things into their “nav” (as they call it), and then ignore it completely and complain that the road they were on closed.

  4. It's always enjoyable to read something that gives me a good laugh. :)
