Moment of Zen For Abbott and Costello

Leaving Airport Rental Car agency  in Denver. The first ten minutes of the vacation weekend

 

Wade: Ok, where am I going ?

 

Rayda: Look for a sign that says to 22

 

Wade: 222 (two twenty two) ?

 

Rayda: Right, to 22

 

Wade: I don’t see any.

 

Rayda: Wait, look over there ! 22

 

Wade: No, that’s not a sign that says 222, that’s highway  22

 

Rayda: Right, it points  to 22

 

Wade: But it’s not 222

 

Rayda: You don’t need to find  a sign that says to 22 if it already says   22.  Why do you need  a sign  to say to 22, you are already there ! ?

 

Wade: because you said to look for a sign that said  222

 

Rayda: no, I said look for a sign that said  to 22

 

Wade: and that does not say 222, just 22. Wait a minute, are you saying a sign that tells us to go to 22 and not a sign that says highway 222 ?

 

Rayda: You are exasperating.

That reminds me of a mix-up while driving in a very busy strange city.

Left here?

Right!

Well, the right ended up taking 20 minutes to back-track when the left was actually the way to go.

Next time Correct! or Yes! may be the better response if left is right.
