About a year ago we were in Massachusetts taking a rental car out to our hotel. The navigation system seemed very sure of itself but it really started to feel wrong when it took us off of paved roads and down what seemed like just a dirt path. When it finally told us that the empty field we were in was our destination we called the hotel.

“Oh, are you using some sort of navigation system?”

“Yes.”

“Yeah, those computer things don’t really know their way around here very well.”
