A friend, who isn't using Waze, refers to her GPS persona as "That Bitch in the Box!"

I finally have a UR that justifies my posting:

Update Request: Wrong driving direction
Took me to a dead end road. Not destination

And yes, he made the UR at a dead end but there is no indication of where he wanted to really go, so how am I supposed to know?

Mind reading, crystal ball, maybe I close my eyes and pick a place on the map?

I don't think there are as many "bogus" URs as you would think. There are a couple of issues that make many URs appear bogus but the primary problem is:

The reporter assumes there is more information provided to the responder than is actually provided.

If we knew "where they were going" a large number of the unsolvable URs become solvable. If there was ALWAYS a track and a route provided, a few more go away. Since neither of these is going to happen, we will always have unsolvable issues.

I think the coming changes to the Waze editor may help, since being able to ASK the person what they were thinking will go a long way to solving issues.

And speed limits if you're driving an expensive car. ;)


Well actually, if you live in Texas, replace "expensive car" with pickup truck.

It's a chicken place. A notch up from KFC but not that big of a notch.

Popeye's has a pretty good flavor though, can't say that much for the others.


Gosh.... its NOTHING like Church's and the notch up is huge. :)

The original Poppeys was a plywood building with two order windows to the outside on a shell parking lot. I remember getting chicken there :) I grew up in the upper 9th ward which is not far up-river from Arabi where the original place was located.

Al's light display at Christmas was a constant battle with his neighborhood and the Jefferson Parish sheriff's dept. because of the huge crowds and long lines of cars running through narrow subdivision streets. He also caused havoc when he had a helicopter land in the park over the levee from his house.

I really try to not be snarky when I reply to some people but I am tempted to use your suggestion sometime.

Yes, but this one was in the middle of San Francisco Bay. Maybe he was on a ferry?
