Years ago, I had to make a trip to a town about two hours distant. I was a driver who drove out of necessity, not because I liked to drive, and I never went by myself.
This particular time I had asked a church friend to accompany me. We arrived at our destination, I transacted my business, and we headed home. We were busy talking, and I breezed right past my exit, and had gone several miles before I realized my mistake.
Now there was another problem facing me. Getting lost was not uncommon for me. I knew we had to take the next exit because the further we drove the further away from home we were going. So I took the next exit, but then where was I? Did we have to turn left or right? My companion couldn’t help me. She didn’t even drive.
I decided to turn right, since I was right-handed. What did that have to do with it? It was as good a guess as I could make, but another fifteen miles told me it was a bad guess. We passed nothing familiar. I was lost.
I decided to turn around, but when I turned the corner to turn back, we were on a one way street – going the wrong way. I could only go the wrong way. Finally we came to an intersection, I turned right, turned right on the next street, and kept on going, until we arrived at the entrance to the thruway, turned right – again – and managed to take the next exit where we turned left, and we were finally on our way home.
After the fact, we laughed about my confusion – but it was certainly not funny to me while it was happening.
