do not approach a woman at a gas station to ask for directions. especially if there are other men there that you can ask. and the second you start leaning out of your car window to ask this woman directions, if she’s in her car with the doors closed and locked before you can say, “excuse me miss”, don’t pull your car up in line with hers and say, “i think the lady inside gave me the wrong directions. i was asking you if you know where such-n-such intersection is.”
then, if she reaches for something in her car, don’t ask her if there’s a grocery store anywhere nearby, particularly if there is a Publix right across the street. and when she says, “there’s a Publix right there,” don’t say, “yeah, i know” and drive off in a huff.
and you’d better make sure you drive right into that Publix parking lot, park your car, go inside and buy something, because if you don’t, she’s at the nearest police station with all of the information about your car faster than the bullets from her favorite gun can hit the center of the paper target at her favorite shooting range.
seriously guys, don’t be idiots, and try to be a little considerate.
