Last night I stayed in a hotel in Maastricht, in the most southern area of our country, to be close to my work appointment in the morning: 8:30 am is the start of a photoshoot in Belgium, just across the border. I did the production, I am the team’s mum for the day – come to me for help I thought about this – and therefore I should be there before everybody else, meet the owner of the location, get the drill and spread the plan for the day.
It is 8:30 they must be waiting for me, to get the brief.
But. I am in the car, and my satellite navigation system directed me to take a sharp right off the main road, into this field behind the sign: dead-end street.
A bit late, but I had to by-pass a rather complicated road block just after the river – and this happened to me before: On my way to an appointment, well prepared, nicely on time and just before the arrival my satnav screws it up.
Surely this happens to others too?
