I Don't Want Directions is the 783rd xkcd comic.


The man in the comic is getting directions over the phone to someone's house. The man doesn't need detailed directions because he has a GPS navigation device and can just enter the address and get his own directions. Although we only hear the his side of the conversation, it's clear that the person he's talking to insists on giving detailed directions instead of just the address.

Annoyed, the man tricks the other person into giving a simple street address by saying that he needs to mail something to that person. Problem solved!

Mouseover textEdit

"Yes, I understand that the turn is half a mile past the big field, but my GPS knows that, too. This would be easier if you weren't about to ask me to repeat it all back to you."
