M is for Maps.
I'm quite sure that everybody can relate to this. With the invention of the GPS Navigation, who needs a paper map, especially if every cellphone has it, too? Or you can buy a GPS unit for your car, and you're good to go anywhere, everywhere. (Unless you have mazeophobia like me. *laughs*)
Seriously, I didn't own a GPS unit back in 2005. I got lost in Sacramento. I stopped by a liquor store and asked for directions. The cashier advised me to buy a map. Duh. I didn't buy a map. I didn't want to read a map while searching for the correct road. *giggles* Well, I do know how to read a map, I just didn't want to waste money on a downtown Sacramento map. I never visit it often enough for me to own its map. So, I saved my money and got me a GPS unit instead.
GPS Navigation went out with a loud boom of convenience. People who get lost easily can now just listen to the voice prompts and arrive at their destinations. It's a piece-o-cake!
The fun thing about GPS voice prompts is that you can buy a unit with different types of voices. The funniest I've heard so far was Ozzy Osbourne's voice telling me where to turn left. He cussed at me! "You effin' need to turn left!" I was shocked. I think I missed my turn. *cackles*
Technology can be fun sometimes. Have you heard a famous voice on a GPS? Tell me your story.
