For those unfamiliar:
"... A few turnings later and I was thoroughly lost. There is a school of thought which says that you should consult a map on these occasions, but to such people I merely say, 'Ha! What if you have no map to consult? What if you have a map but it's of the Dordogne?' My own strategy is to find a car, or the nearest equivalent, which looks as if it knows where it is going and follow it. I rarely end up where I was intending to go, but often I end up somewhere that I needed to be. So what do you say to that?"

Why does it have to be me? "Oh, he looks like he knows where he's going, let's stop in the middle of the intersection and block his path! We'll see which way he turns, and go that way!"
I should totally drive to the farthest back road I know of just to see them panic when the pavement ends...
