    Got Lost Going Home

    Today was the second time it happens; I was driving home after work a little tired and all of a sudden I looked around me and I have no idea where I was. I turned on the Nav in my car and realized that I was like 5 miles away from where I ...

    The Shame

    When I first moved to this town my husband had to go away for three months. I had no job or friends so had to go out exploring on my own. The only thing is all the army house's around here look the same, as do all the estates. So I'm wondering around for ages and I spot it, I...

    Directions?????

    my sense of direction stinks.  that's the only way to say it.  so, every time i move from one home to another, it takes me forever to learn how to get there and back again.  this last time was the worst, i think, because my apartment complex is fricking hard to...

    Egh... Where Am I???

    I am horrible at directions.  Getting lost is even more embarrassing.  I think I have you all topped with this embarrassing story.  When I was about 13 years old, I was going to meet my friends to go trick or treating.  Well they left without me so I ended up...

    Best Adventure

    My desire for freedom was never respected. I was never been freed from my parents' control. At ten, I got lost in another city. While they were so worried at me, I was so happy with that situation. That was the best adventure in my life. I reached home safe.

    I Got Lost On the Way Home

    Many a time, the outbound road is the longer journey. It may be that it takes you to a previously unvisited locale; perhaps you track the arrow of specific purpose, be it for leisure or more tiresomely productive task. Regardless, the path that leads away from home is...

    It Can Make You Feel Like An Idiot

    I've lived in the same place all my life.  Been all over, know many different ways to get here & there.  But, I have to admit I've taken wrong turns.  One time I headed west instead of east & thought I was losing my mind.  Had to pull over & call...

    This Was Bad!

    I had left work early one day (7 years ago) because I wasn't feeling well. I got on Rte 1 and started home. I was so out of it that I missed my exit but didn't realize it until the road changed. I felt so stupid and probably shouldn't have been driving if I was that out of it. I...

    From The Grocery Store

    I guess I was just lost in thought and wasn't really paying attention. I was thinking there must be a more straightforward way to get home from the grocery store.  I took a street and then another and then realized I had no idea which way to go to get home.   I checked the GPS...

    Road Blocks

    Earlier last week I was driving, trying to get back home from school, only to find that my usual route was blocked off by the cops. Taking another route, then another, I found that they'd blocked those ways off as well. I didn't know what was going on. This is the second time...
