Do you ever have one of those moments when you realize what an idiot you are?
I just had one of those moments in the car.
I have this nifty G.P.S. device to guide me around town. It has been a life saver! Well today I was messing around with it while I was driving and found a screen that I had never seen before. It looked like my dashboard. It told me exactly what speed I was driving and everything. I noticed on one of the gauges it showed an E. I couldn't believe it knew that I was almost on empty and needed to refuel soon. Then I turned slightly right and the E turned into and SE. Could that mean it's now only "slightly empty?" At this point I was smacking myself in the head. Duh! It's a compass.
So I had a good laugh at my own expense.
This is not the first time I have read something incorrectly in my vehicle.
I remember it was the first winter we had the van and we had just gotten our first snowfall. The flakes were big and beautiful, but I was cold and needed to turn on the heat. I saw this button and thought since it had a snowflake on it that it should be pushed when it is snowing. Sounded practical enough. Five minutes later I couldn't figure out why I was even colder than before.
Here comes another smack to the head. Idiot! That was the button for the air conditioning. I kid you not.
Some days I scare myself.
