In the current times, Google Maps is that tapri waley uncle telling visitors directions to different locations. However, it’s not as foolproof as him. If you’re running low on luck, you might end up in deserted islands or reach a dead end, thanks to the web mapping service.
Earlier, a groom almost married the wrong woman after Google Maps took him to the wrong venue.
Well, recently people online shared similar experiences of being diverted to weird locations. Twitter started flooding with such stories after a man joked that Google maps lead him into the bush and advised him to drive into a mango tree.
Not Google maps leading us into the bush and having the audacity to say “turn left”. Into the mango tree?

From making people drive through someone’s compound to saying ‘your destination is on the right’ when on a bridge top, these are some hilarious blunders it did.
Story of my life today. My family have been hissing and puffing at me all day for taking them to dead ends!

I’ll never forget the day we used Google maps to travel to Calabar by road. Before we knew it, we were in one village with a dead end. Google maps said we should continue going 😭😭

Will never forget accepting a shorter route to Kpetoe via Sogakope. Beginning of road was tarred and all seemed well until the tarred portion ended and portions of road seemed like bush path/ tracks. Gone too far and it was getting late. Had to complete journey through the bush https://t.co/KP5lvbpKYl

Well, these are hilarious but annoying. Have you ever been diverted to an unknown land when blindly following the navigating service?
