Microfiction Monday #34

Susan from ‘Stony River’ organises and hosts this weekly meme. She provides a picture and the challenge is to create a story in 140 characters or less – including punctuation!

Here is this week’s picture and my offering.

‘I told you that GPS thing’s no use. We’re in the middle of a farmyard!’

‘Shut up and follow me. We’ve got to turn around when possible.’

  2. Sometimes GPS will get you to the middle of a cornfield.
    Really good and different.

  3. He's a smart ass, I mean ponkey--those GPS units are sometimes unreliable!

  4. LOL...You mean the turn by turn didn't work properly? They should sue google maps. LOL Great take on the picture :) Have a great week :)

  5. Ah, so I'm not the only one who has troubles with GPS!! I thought I noticed my ears getting longer lately!!! Fun one for the day, Janice! Hope you have a great week!

    Loved ur post on the singing postman. i had never heard of him before.
    this is one thing i love about ur blog. it tells us about so many aspects of your culture you take for granted but which so many of us aren't even aware of.
    Fun way to acquire knowledge!
    Winston looks very smart but definitely conscious of his new harness!

  10. Yeah, backing up is NOT their strong suit!

    Well done! I hope they find a geocache on their "road less traveled"

  11. I just got a GPS on my phone. Now I have two ways to get lost!
    I loved your MF, I thought of myself driving in Wisconsin with only my GPS...scary!

  12. So cute. They really do look like they're lost!

  13. Knew I recognised them Trainee taxi drivers, aint they! Yes I know it's Wednesday but my employer unreasonably expected me to work on Monday and Tuesday so no time free except to sleep and even that down to 5-6 hours! Inspired by Shakespeare this week. My Micro Story
