No common sense of direction

You’ll laugh at me, then I’ll cry — but I deserve it.

From The Grove (in L.A.), I went the wrong way from the directions I printed out. They showed me from home to The Grove, but I didn’t print any for the return trip.

On Santa Monica Blvd., I drove West instead of East. I wanted I-10 East. Instead, I hit I-405 and went North. Had I drove South, I would’ve hit I-10 East just fine.

  • My freeway route: Santa Monica Blvd (2 West) > 405 North > 101 South > 134 East > 210 East
  • Quicker route: Santa Monica Blvd (2 East) > 101 South > 10 East

I’ll post a highlighted route from Google Maps, but I need a nap right now. I know it’s 7pm. Oh well. For now, look at it yourself! 🙂

If I had my way, I’d have signs posted on main streets that indicate where the freeways are. (GPS systems aren’t ubiquitous yet!) Instead, they’re posted right when you see the freeway. That’s convenient for those who don’t know the area that well. (Sarcasm brought to you by Me.)

Granted, I should have stopped to ask for directions. But, it’s me. At least it’s Saturday, and I’m an idiot!

Was that pretty funny, or just plain sad?
