Here is a great example how we have become overly dependent on modern technology.
I live in a rural part of Minnesota. Not out in the sticks, just not in town. I include very precise directions for my listings. I had an agent call on Friday and was lost. Could not find the home. Her GPS would not pick up the address.
I told her, just look at the listing..the directions are right on the front. "You can't miss it." I said.
Her reply..."I'm not sure how to follow the directions." "WHAT?"
The agent was sitting at the starting point of my directions. A major highway intersection. She needed to take the road off the hwy going west, (the only direction you could go) Go 1.2 miles to XYZ ave. Turn right 1.3 miles to the property where my sign was.
I then went over the directions with the agent very S L O W L Y, to which the response was.."Well, I guess I can try."
I told her...ask your client to help you follow the directions. "OH, I couldn't do that, they shouldn't see that info." "WHY?" I asked..."You are driving them there and they will see where to go any way, or do you have them blindfolded?"
The point is that I know people who punch in the address to the store where they will be shopping even tho they shop there once or twice a week. We are losing a basic instinct...our sense of direction. I know that many people have been challenged by this all their lives, but you should be able to make a wrong right turn on a city block and know that you need to make a left and a right to be back on track or 3 more rights.
For me, I will not use a GPS...don't need one. I will always be able to find my front door. My directions will be spot on for those that have trouble following directions to make it as easy as possible.
OH OH, Now what do I do?
