Which way is up

I have a confession...

I am directionally challenged. That is right, it takes me a second to think which way is left and which way is right. I am bad at giving directions, I tend to point to places where to turn or at landmarks, which is not always good for the driver. I am the one who gives directions,

"Make a left by the taco place called El Famoso but if you get to El Bandito you are too far north"
"The road makes a weird twist thing, keep going straight
I am getting better but still I am the last person to ask for directions by car.
So after my last fiasco of driving in NJ I got me a GPS which will be coming with me to NJ. Now NJ is not that bad, I mean it produced Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi but the roads are confusing with weird twists and turns. I have to be there next week and already I am pondering how not to get lost for hours (again).
In other news, I got my new phone in Maroon it is a LG EnV2, it is my new toy!

I can usually give good directions IF you realize that I have permanently mixed up my left and right.

Yeah. Most people will take your taco stand directions.

I once had to find an apartment from a woman whose directions went something like this:

Turn left at the first light and drive about 1/8 to 1/4 of a mile and take the first right after that. Then take the first left after a blue house on the right.

Or then there's my niece's directions. "Turn there!"
