Have you ever found yourself having a hard time driving in a new place? Try doing that for a living! We were in Hagerstown, MD recently between meetings and left our hotel to get some dinner. I saw on the GPS that there was a Roy Rodger's Restaurant about a mile away and since we had never been there before, we decided to give it a try. It was so-so. The best part was the burger toppings bar where you could fix it yourself just the way you like it which was great for this pickle lover!
Well, on the way out I thought I knew the way back to the hotel and that there was no need for the GPS. All we had to do was turn left and our hotel should be about a mile down on the right. The hubs pulls out to the light and puts his left blinker on and when the light finally changes we both realize, yuck, lots of traffic and no left arrow. That's when the honking starts. Several cars behind us are just letting us have it! What is going on? Why are they beeping? Well, traffic finally clears and we take our left . . . onto a one way street going the wrong way! Opps! So that's why they were honking. Thankfully there was no one in the lane and we were able to go a few more feet and pull out of the road into . . . a police station of all places. Yes, we had just made an illegal turn onto a one way street in front of a police station. Thankfully there was no one from the station watching and we survived without incident. We just laughed it off, because really, what else were we going to do?! We will definitely pay more attention next time!
