It just goes to show you.........make sure you spell things correctly!!!!!!!

I had the same issue with my boss, who plugged into the rental car GPS the wrong location......we would have been driving for the next 3 hours if I hadn't put on my glasses and noticed that we were headed for Red Deer!!!!!

Did you hear about - true story - the member of the UK royal family who was going to see Chelsea play? Just shows that despite their royal blood whatever that means, they had as much clue as the cab driver. She asked for Stamford Bridge and he took her to site of the Battle of Stamford Bridge in Yorkshire about 200 miles away. I dont like to be insulting to anyone but thick or what?

Not to mention the guy with the truck who was supposed to drive from Turkey to Gibraltar via Europe. Since Gibraltar is under British rule he somehow ended up at the ferry to Dover. His mistake was discovered by the customs officials. It took them quite some time to convince him to turn back and drive to Spain - he was from Syria and spoke only very poor English.
