Cindy’s Front Porch: Trust me, I can miss it

I’m making a list and checking it twice. At the top of my naughty list are people who tell me, “You can’t miss it. It’s easy to find!” This is what I’m told almost every time I schedule an interview at someone’s home. Most folks assume I can follow basic directions. It’s a logical assumption, but for the navigationally impaired, it’s just one more obstacle on the path from point A to point B. Technology hasn’t helped. In fact, I think I was less geographically challenged in my pre-GPS days when I relied on MapQuest and the kindness of strangers to guide me to my destination/Cindy Hval, SR Front Porch. More here.

Question: Do you have problems with geographical directions?
