Go South

Me: “Hi I have an appointment for 9:30 and Im on campus but Im lost, Im standing on the corner of Tiverton and James Charles way how do I get to you”

Girl 1: “Hold on Ill get someone to help you”

Me: “Ok”

Girl 2: “Hello Oral blah blah clinic”

Me: “Hi I have an appointment for 9:30 and Im on campus but Im lost, Im standing on the corner of Tiverton and James Charles way how do I get to you”

Girl 2: “Go South”

At this point I have a look of confusion on my face, I look up I see trees and tall buildings Im emcompased completely in shadow.

Me: “I dont know where south is Im surrounded by tall buidings and trees and I dont have a compass, but Im near the building called the school of Dentistry clinics”

Let me digress for a minute, I have a map of campus ( a shitty map but a map), I have a great sense of direction and having been the victim of bad naming conventions before.  e.g. San Pedro Way   San Pedro Court  San Pedro Ave.  All located in the same neighborhood UGH.  The map said School of Dentistry, the sign on the building said School of Dentistry Clinics so Im thinking maybe this is the buiding maybe not depending on if the same stooge did this campus and the aformentioned San Pedro debacle.

Girl 2: “Sir Im trying to help just go South”

Me: “If I dont know where South is that doesnt help, Im standing in front of the school of dentistry clinics buidling If I were to walk out these doors where do I go” 

Girl2: “Oh ok well theres some construction stuff out there you need to go towards that and then over to…..”

So at this point Im following her directions which is taking me back to where I just parked my car I interupt her

“Im on foot I told you I was standing in front of the School of Dentistry Clinics building is this where I need to go?  I wasnt sure cause the map and the sign on the buiding wasnt the same.”

Girl2: ” Oh yeah thats it just go inside elevators in the back……”

Me: “Thank you”

Lesson learned           just go South
