Here's another that made me smile:

Problem: food

So, I wonder if the food is the problem, or whether the wazer is just hungry. ;)

Problem: you've reported map issue fixed, but Glen Arbor Way, Fitchburg, WI still isn't on your map. check Google!
Reported on: January 12
For some unknown reason, this UR landed in Glendale, California. (appx. 1665 miles)
And, for extra points, the road in question does look to have been added to the map by bigbear3764 on Jan 3rd and appears in Live Map.

Yeah, I've seen several instances where the original reporter responds with a new UR instead of responding to the original request. And the reporter doesn't then realize that their new report comes from where they ARE not from where the original report was generated. Sigh. When the conversation feature is used as intended, it is extremely useful. It's hard to know if the "no response" is from perceived clumsiness on the part of the reporter or not.

Problem:

Wasn't sure if this would be a new "vehicle" icon choice or not. :D

We just de-railed the thread, that's all.

tried to get to Del Ray from Boca. Waze sent me SOUTH

The more I see of these, the more I am convinced that the casual waze user enters a new UR to respond to a request for more information - not realizing that their response comes from where they are at the time of response rather than where the original UR was logged - and further not realizing that it comes up as a new UR. And since users experiencing an error want to make sure waze really, really gets it - I often see 2 and 3 URs for (apparently) the same error by (apparently) the same user, and then a 4th UR with a comment relating to the other 2/3 URs in the same area.

I just recently had a UR that contained social commentary on the neighborhoods he had just driven thru. It wasn't derogatory or anything, but I can only hope it was the passenger writing the commentary and not the driver. :D
