My wife couldn't navigate her way out of a paper bag, nor could my sister (86yrs and never driven. She knows Inverness is that way, and Perth the other, and where the bus stop is).
Drove her to Inverness last week, got to a roundabout and she says "go left here, and then right". So I take the first exit (left) - "No no, you're supposed to go over there . . " She meant the second exit. After which I would be in the Tesco car park and turn right into the parking bays.
