That's why when I found out that I had won a GPS this week from a local TV station, I kind of chuckled to myself. Aside from the occasional excursion out of town (which I usually use the GPS that came pre-installed on my cell phone for - we're not too backwards) there is really not a necessity to own a GPS. Additionally, a GPS cannot be programmed to give me the directions that I am used to receiving. It all seems rather silly (and maybe a bit arrogant) to think that I would need a GPS for daily use.
The Hubs, however, is infatuated with all that technology has to offer, even if it makes no sense in our day to day lives. He has downloaded every map from the company's website (exclaiming "I have street maps for the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico!"). Never mind my response that we cannot drive there and therefore will probably never go, he is on a mission to look up directions to relatives houses, to see all of the alternate ways to get anywhere he may think of to go. He has mounted it proudly in his car.
And, until the next cool gadget comes our way - that is where it will stay.
