Country Club Versus Country Kitchen

Buddy says, "Da truf, da hole truf and nuttin but da truf!"

BUDDY:  The other day Jan asked Mr. Doug to give her a ride to the bank.  Then she asked if they could stop at Badcock Furniture so she could check out the store.  It was on the way.

CYNDI:  We're going to share it just the way Jan told the story to us.

Mr. Doug:  Are you sure it's on the way?

Jan:  Yes, it's just a block this side of the bank.  And then I won't have to hike into town to check them out.

CYNDI:  As they drove by where Jan thought it was supposed to be ...

Jan:  Oh, that's right, it was another furniture store there and it closed.  I wonder where Badcock is? 

Mr. Doug:  Maybe someone in the bank knows.

BUDDY:  Inside the bank, Jan asked a bank employee who was walking by if she knew where Badcock Furniture had moved.

Woman #1:  Yes, I do.  Do you know where the Country Club is?  It's right across the street.

Jan:  So if I go SOUTH, Badcock will be directly across the street from the Country Club?  Are you sure? 

Woman #1:  Yes, directly across the street.

CYNDI:  Mr. Doug was even more astounded at the directions than Jan was. Neither of them remembered any stores in that area SOUTH of town.

BUDDY:  Jan went to a teller to do her banking.  When she finished, Mr. Doug was talking to Woman #2 in Customer Service.

Woman #2:  Yes, it's right there.  You can't miss it.

Jan:  It's right where?

Woman #2:  Just head NORTH and Badcock is directly across from Country Kitchen.

Jan:  I'm sorry, are you saying Badcock is NORTH - across from Country Kitchen ... not the Country Club?

Woman #2:  *looks at Jan as if she's a bit lost*  Yes, you can't miss it.

CYNDI: We think this is payback for those times Jan has been asked directions.  She is notoriously bad at remembering names of streets.

BUDDY:  Yes, once she gave a guy directions by counting traffic lights before he should turn.  As he drove away, she hollered, "W-A-A-A-A-I-T!  I gave you walking directions.  Those are one-way streets!

UPDATE:  We've had several ask if Jan ever made it to Badcock Furniture, so we thought we would let you know.  Yes, she did.  Woman #2 gave the correct directions.
