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.
