Which Way is Right?

This is a true story that I heard on the radio the other day. A British couple landed in the hospital after their car's global positioning system directed them to drive into a church.

While driving their Renault in the evening on a back road near the Austrian border, the navigation system instructed the couple to turn right where there was no road.

"They were confused and didn't notice that the navigation system was faulty," a police spokeswoman said.

The couple, who were travelling to France, spent the evening in hospital recuperating from minor injuries.

"What happened to them is a salutary lesson about the limits of navigation systems - don't always believe what you hear, and keep your eyes open."

I think the moral of this story is that we shouldn't blindly follow directions without ever questioning where we are being led and above all else, if there is no road, don't turn right.
