North, East, South, West

So just how many lovely Maltese talk ladies know directions using North, South, East and and West. My hubby says I am very unusual and not like most women cause I never say left or right but use N, E,S,W. Most of my friends don't know directions so I do feel a bit odd.

No clue with N,E,S,W. I hate it when GPS starts the first direction with "head south on such and such road". Unless I have been on that road a million times I have no idea which direction the road runs. I use right and left or even better "turn at the (landmark)".

I have no clue about North, West, East, South. When confronted on a Freeway with East or West I have to ask my husband "which way do I have to go". I am terrible at this.

I think I am the oddest person I know. Why do I have this sense of direction?

My husband gets a kick out of me when he asks me where something is cause I respond with, in the laundry room on the west wall. Or in our bedroom closet on the second shelf on the east wall.

Guess I am just plain weird!

Carol, you and I must be related! I use both, but when hubby and I are traveling, I use the N, S, E, W directions. When I'm with my other family members, I use the right and left directions.
You are special, that's why I like you sooooooo much!

Carol, I have a good one for your sense of direction. We have a belt line around Raleigh. Depending on where you get on the choice may be north/south or it may be east/west. Locals refer to using the inner and outer belt line. It took me forever to get it straight when we moved here. I went the wrong direction more than once.

It was probably a man that set it up that way.

In Tampa there is an exit with choices to go either east or west on Dale Mabry........my problem with that is, Dale Mabry only runs North and South. Again, a man who set it up more than likely.
