When it comes to giving directions, there are two kinds of people: street name people and landmark people.
Street name people base their direction on street names. “Turn right on Spruce, go about a mile, then hang a left on Main.”
Landmark people base their directions on landmarks. ““Turn right after the Best Buy, go about a mile, then hang a left at the Trader Joe’s.”
I once witnessed an argument between someone offering landmark-based directions, and someone who wanted street name-based directions. The directions involved turning at a Denny’s.
The person receiving the directions asked, “What if I don’t see the Denny’s?”
The guy giving the directions said, “A Denny’s is a hell of a lot bigger than a street sign.”
The logic was impeccable.
