Twittering Tales — Damn Tourists

0B14A2EB-FE1D-4618-95B9-0603F9CD7CB3I hate them. The tourists. Always stopping me on the street, asking me how to get to here or there. Do I look like a freakin’ tour guide? Haven’t they ever heard of Google Maps? Type in the name of where you want to go and it shows you a detailed map directing you there. Sheesh!

    They do look totally clueless. Maybe they haven’t heard about Google maps!

    Paper maps are definitely old hat. I live by google these days, though I do remember when a trip to the library was where you looked things up…and every family who could afford it, had a set of encyclopedias, with annual update volumes that came in the mail every year. I don’t miss those days. I like having the world at my fingertips.

    Definitely google maps are in, did anyone tell these guys, huh! You’d be a good person to do that. I’d love to hear your response…lol

    They look like a group doing orienteering – no Google allowed! Okay, so they don’t do that in built-up areas so much, but I’m a person who could easily get lost in my back street, and maps always look upside down or …
    I’d rather ask someone, talk to someone, make them feel special for the help they offered a stranger.

    Glad there is nothing touristy around here. I bet the questions do get old. 🙂
