Annoyances: Needless Directions


I really don't like it when you ask someone what they did at the weekend, and there answer is a variant of the following:

"Just went for some food at 'The Old Ship'. Do you know the one I mean? Yeah? It's just off junction 31 of the M62 West, yeah? If you carry on going you're down Blackthorne road, right, and then you want to look out for the third set of traffic lights, take the next left and keep going until you reach Tesco. Then it's past that, on your right, and a few hundred yards down that road. On your left. Yeah, it's on Greenbrass Lane, that's the one."

"Yeah, it was a nice meal. I just had a burger and chips. That was pretty much it."
