GPS or Google Maps were not around when I was growing up.
If I wanted to figure out how to get from one particular locale to the other, I had to get out a map or an atlas.
I don’t even think they teach the youngsters how to use a map or an atlas in university anymore. I worked as a delivery driver for a pizza shop when I was 17 years old. I had to look at a map to get all of our directions before I left the shop. There were no cell PCs either, fast forward 10 years plus a lot of things changed extremely. The internet changed a lot; Certainly you could print out directions to almost any locale in less than 8 hours. 10 years after that, there were maps on our PC that could lead me to a locale with step by step directions, gPS changed a lot of things for me… Being able to use these electronics to go from a single locale to the other means you don’t have to look down when you are driving. That means it’s also a lot safer. It also means that you can get to more than one locale more abruptly. I still work as a delivery driver 20 years later, however now I work for another costly marijuana boutique. The costly marijuana boutique has customers all up plus down the hill. We have lots of unusual medical plus recreational marijuana products that are available for pick up or delivery services. I have to be able to get to the customers’ addresses safely plus abruptly. Now I can put the address into our PC plus a nice lady on the other end will tell me exactly when to turn and also where to go.
