Tuesday Reverie: Improving the GPS

Posted on
Sep 25, 2012

I’m just saying … I think it would encourage me to pay better attention to the directions.

“Turn … LeeeeEEEEFT!”

Because frankly, right now she sounds all hoighty-toighty and bossy.

  • I bet you could download Sloth’s voice. I know our Garmin let’s you set it to whatever you find out in the interwebs…..

  • Jodi

    Too funny. My co-worker calls his GPS Joanne, because that is the name of his bossy, know-it-all sister-in-law.

  • Tori

    Don’t we all?!? Life would be so much more enjoyable hearing Sloth each day!

  • Theresa

    Her real name is Monica & Monica is rather impatient and bossy! We take her on vacations with us 😉

  • I have Homer telling me where to go. Seriously. Homer. He tells me i’m a genius when I make it to my destination.

  • When my daughter was little, she named our GPS “Jeema” so that’s what we still call it, whichever model we possess, 5 years later. I can’t see this name changing regardless of how many we burn through. It’s kind of like that one fish named Fred. You know — ALL OF THEM EVER?
