BOOM! Job interview one of two is complete! Went pretty well, all things considered…..by that I mean completely spacing on what job I had applied for. Luckily they mentioned it at the beginning of the interview so I was able to save face.
Usually when I go to interviews or places I don’t know, I borrow my lady’s GPS. Most of the time it’s used to really just help me in case I get lost, since most of the schools I have been to for interviews lately have been on roads either on or near major NH highways. Hampton School was gorgeous, and only a half hour away, which makes it fit into the “ideal” category.
Anyways, since I knew 80% of my journey, I decided to play the “Screw With Garmin” game, and purposefully take alternative routes to see how the GPS reacts. And here is today’s post.
Since I was going to have to take the Spaulding Turnpike regardless, I decided to hop onto it earlier than Garmin wanted me to. This of course, caused the GPS to lose its shit and recalculate 7 times. I’m sure that if it could, it would have sworn at me in its weird robot Australian accent. When i was already on the turnpike, it decided the best course of action would be to take the Durham/Concord exit (Exit 6W), stay on that for about 3 miles, then go back ONTO the Spaulding Turnpike. WHAT? On what planet would that make sense?* Luckily I was able to make it to The Hampton School on time, and make it back here in time to catch up on my DVR’d episodes of Gangland before I have to go work at Staples from 4-10.
*I know that had I turned off “avoid toll roads” that the GPS wouldn’t have told me to take the Durham exit. But I needed a blog topic and this has been the ONLY thing that I’ve done today. So there.
