Google Navigation Destroyed my Career

Okay, maybe I'm over-exaggerating. But I'm still extremely disappointed in Google Nav. I know, it popped up with a warning saying it was in Beta, blah blah, but it's not like I was trying to find Mordor here!

Franciscan Vascular Associates in Federal Way is not in some backwoods country hick town in the middle of nowhere. It's on a main drag, in a big city, and Google screwed me over not once, but twice!

I have myself a whole hour to make my way for this interview, that would take 20 minutes without traffic and probably 30 minutes with some morning rush. There was an accident on North I-5 (duh, because there always is) which cut down my time quite a bit but I could still get there in time.

If Google Nav had any idea where I was going.

After I got lost the first time, as Google Nav decided to take the scenic route and plop me in the center of a residential district, I called the clinic and they gave me the address for St. Francis Hospital and said it was nearby. Okay, perfect. Plug it in and get going. I still wasn't late. Yet.

And then Google Nav plopped me in the middle of a park.


Now it was 7:30, and I was officially late for my interview. Luckily, the interviewer was the one who answered the phone the second time and had to manually direct me because obviously Google Nav was on some sort of strike and was refusing to tell me where this place was at.

The purple star was my first attempt, and the red star is, supposedly, where St. Francis is located. No, that would be the BIG F*CKING PINK BLOB NEXT TO THE ADDRESS FOR VASCULAR.

So, I probably ruined my chance at getting this job since I was about 10 minutes late for the interview. I could have found the time that weekend to drive up there and find the place, but if Monday was any indication, I wouldn't have found it anyway!

I guess I learned never to trust Google Nav again.
