"Recalculating insurance premium"

I have used a voice guidance GPS in the car before. Never once did it tell me to drive up a power pole.

My old GPS had a speech defect, it would say 'doctor' instead of 'drive': "Turn right on Smith Doctor.
But it never directed up a pole either.

It was a Boston driver – worse than Florida.

GPS does not like Polish electricians?

I smell a lawsuit coming -- from the driver, of course. That's probably why my GPS specifically tells me to make a U-turn "in 400 feet" or "when able."

apparently meanie's GPS has the voice of a bikini-clad Swedish police officer

This was part of an THE OFFICE episode. Except Michael drove into a lake.

Some drivers following their GPS have also wound up a creek.
