Pop Quiz Time

Today, I had to drive Teen to a babysitting job in an unfamiliar suburb. The mom gave me a lot of directions along the lines of "It winds around, and you just follow it for a long while." I have no GPS. I also have no internal sense of direction. Just like sociopaths are born without a sense of empathy, I have no ability to drive from point A to point B without accidentally taking the scenic route through Q, detouring onto F, and ending up at Z.

Poll #1552443 Let's Get Lost!

If April's directions (in her own handwriting) say "Turn left on Royal," what should she do?

Turn left on Royce, because that's the name of the street
0(0.0%)
Search in vain for Royal
4(80.0%)
Sail past intersection
0(0.0%)
Some combination of the above
1(20.0%)

If April is driving back the way she came, and to get there she turned left from Westview to Overlook, should she now turn:

Right
2(40.0%)
Left
0(0.0%)
Sail past intersection
0(0.0%)
Left, then double back and turn left again
0(0.0%)
Hell, I don't know
3(60.0%)

If April realizes she has missed a turn, should she take the next turn and try to run parallel to it?

No! The street will turn out to run at a diagonal.
0(0.0%)
No. She will become even more lost, to the point where she can't find her way back and they will run her picture in the paper.
1(20.0%)
Yes. It might work out. Maybe. And if wishes were horses, we'd be up to here in horse sh#t.
4(80.0%)

How many wrong turns can April make in a 20-minute trip?

1
0(0.0%)
2
0(0.0%)
3
0(0.0%)
4
