I took part in this conversation today in downtown San Jose. I was looking for the pharmacy and saw a young couple having coffee outside a Starbucks.
Me: I’m sorry to disturb you, but I’m looking for Walgreen’s.
Young man: Oh yes. (Pointing) It’s first on your left.
Young woman: No. First is second left.
Young man: Yes. First. On your left.
Young woman: Walgreen’s is on the right when you turn left.
Young man: Right. That’s what I said.
Me: OK. Thanks very much.
LOL! There should be a standards organization that makes guidelines for giving directions.
