Lost a mile from home. WTF who does that!?



Ugh, I’m so bad with directions.

I missed my appointment because they recently changed buildings. I was not aware of this change so I went to the old building. I opened the door (not seeing the sign) thinking oh how great, there will not be many people in here, the parking lot is almost empty. Note to self: That should have been my clue. I was the ONLY freaking car in th parking lot but failed to notice that part.

I was confused when I opened the door to see a waiting room black and completely empty. I go back out the door with my three kiddos clueless trailing behind me. Now I discover the sign! “We moved, just down the street.” For real, 1/2 a mile away, just one mile from home. 

I load the kids back up, buckling my three year old hipp-ity hopping 3 year old back up. Down the street we go. I circle through where I think it would be at, nope not there. We drive a little farther. This has got to be it. We unload, and go into the small medical building. We walked around the building looking for our eye doctors name on the glass windows in front of waiting rooms full of patients starring out them. Did not find it. We loaded up and drove some more. Why can’t I find stuff. People do this stuff all day. I must say I respect the mail lady much more today. I don’t know how she finds so many places in a day. 

I gave up and decided to head home before I really go lost and didn’t know my way back. I didn’t have my cellphone with me and my car kept wanting to stall. Really?! Now!? Check engine lights on (bad gas? Maybe?) I can’t find where I’m going and I have three kids in the car with traffic everywhere. I say I call it a day! I was ready to cry all the way home. 

After I got home, I used my friend, Google Street View. Ah now I see where it is. I had to call and explain why I was not there and make new appointments. If they would have let me know they moved I would have done this before. The lady on the other end could not understand why I could not find it saying they had directions on the door of the old building. Directions don’t do me much good, obviously

  1. I can really relate to this….I get lost over the simple changes, and close to home. Went back to the town I lived in for ten years and took wrong turns three times! Change is hard. Thanks for visiting my blog, and I’m glad you have this blog as an outlet and way to educate others. We have a facebook group listed above my blog, if you want to join. Mosly all women with Aspergers. 🙂 Sam
