    Why do customers never warn you on the phone that the place is a nightmare to find?

    Took me half an hour of driving up and down the same road untill I finally found it by chance, no street names, nothing and satnav drew a blank.

    Her mobile was switched off so I couldn't ring and to make matters worse I was dying for a dump.

    I was convinced I was going to **** myself!!

    Rant over

    I had to hold it in till I got home, the job was a none flushing toilet :(
    Starring into that toilet bowl made it even worse, luckily it was only a 5 minute diaphram change and straight home for a dump. :)

    worst ones are the houses with no number but a name, like dunroamin and such, it can be a busy road and you have to slow down at every house to see the name plate, and you know how patient the traffic behind can be . and the owners will never give you a house number " ooh no we don't have a house number we're far too important for that "
    GRRRRR

    Strange, I find SatNav incredibly accurate. Postcode and number.

    Don't get me wrong, my satnav is fantastic and without it I'd be stuffed but this place was a weird 'off the beaten track' type place.

    It turned out it did get me to roughly the right place but the place was hidden, really hidden.

    good point drew, if you used a sat nav in skem, it would be the last time you used it, the * would have it before you got to your destination, then you'd be *,
