I recently looked into adopting a dog from the SPCA. It fell through, but during the transaction I was surprised by something.
The SPCA requires an in-home visit to verify that the house is safe for the dog. When I gave the SPCA representative my information, including my home address, she asked me for directions to my house. As in, turn-by-turn directions. I was surprised, but provided them.
A few days later, I received a phone call from the SPCA rep who’d actually be visiting. She asked me for turn-by-turn directions to my house.
I was floored. Could neither of these fine people use Google Maps or MapQuest? Just type the destination address in the search box, click Search, then click the Get directions to here link, type your home address, and click Go or Add Location. Boom! You have complete, turn-by-turn directions to wherever you’re going.
It’s easy, it’s free, and it saves everyone time. Why not use it?
