Anyone who knows me, or has ridden anywhere with me, knows that I am directionally impaired. For that reason alone, driving around Atlanta is always an adventure! Several years ago, I was on my way to a meeting in Midtown and after making a wrong turn and getting caught in theater traffic, I called my ever-patient husband, who, for the umpteenth time, patiently guided me to my destination. When I got home that night, there on the kitchen counter sat the marvelous little instrument that has made my life (and that of my husband), much easier! I think GPS had to have been invented just for real estate agents!
Since that day, I don't go anywhere without GILDA (Guided Instrumentation for Linda's Daily Adventures)! I love pushing the button that says "Go Home", after navigating from house to house with a buyer or visiting an Open House or Agent Caravan.
I was just reading Teresa Boardman's St Paul Real Estate Blog, noticing that she has named her GPS "Miles". Mine is affectionately called "Gilda". A friend refers to hers as Dora (She drives an Exlorer.) So, I am wondering, does everyone name their GPS? Do you find yourself answering that little voice?
Safe Travels, Everyone!
