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?

  • It's hard for me to even begin to describe Rand's Uncle Doig. During the war, Rand's grandmother Ruth and her father were trying to flee Europe. They got stuck in England, where her Jewish-Austrian father was mistaken for a German, and thus an enemy combatant. He was sent to a POW camp and Ruth was adopted by an English family - Doig's family. (She and her father would be reunited after the war.) Now in his 90s, Doig remains a keeper of family lore, a hopeless romantic, and a wonderful flirt.
