Generational directions 2

The Buckets by Greg Cravens on getting directions.  Does this seem familiar?  Maybe it's because about a year ago I posted the very similar one on giving directions:
At least one of them still seems to be using Mapquest.

By the way, about that sullen teenager who is simply complaining about not having a smartphone,  that presents a perfect opportunity to mention my most favorite recent quote about teenagers... from an article on evolutionary computing. The computer scientist was explaining his experience working with a self-learning software program and how the results were often less than useful:

"It's like arguing with a teenager, ... It just keeps coming back with things that are irrelevant."

That's just beyond perfect.
