Yet another gizmo for people who don’t know where they are or where they’re going.

This could actually prove useful…

Not because I’m an idiot but because store clerks are often not capable of doing the
simple math needed to make change, let alone have the necessary language skills to give understandable directions…

I am good enough at math to remember getting shit from my teachers for doing my Trig homework entirely in my head and even though I hate writing in school
my sticking words together in understandable order has gotten me a paycheck or two writing a technical manual on diagnostic & Repair procedure
(Some people cannot understand a logic tree let alone create one)

I find myself in Walmart a few times each week, there are some items I simply stopped buying there… Why? because the third time they moved them to a new location I decided to buy those items are Lowes because they are always in the same damned place. These items are often a few pennies less at Lowes, but not enough cheaper to drive into another parking lot and hobble into the store on my bad knee.
