Poem of the Free GPS

A friend sent this Poem to me and I can relate to it. I think it will relate too many of you.

Poem of the Free GPS

I have a little GPS
I've had it all my life
Itís better than the normal ones
My GPS is my wife

It gives me full instructions
Especially on how to drive
"It's thirty miles an hour", it says
"You're doing thirty five".

It tells me when to stop and start
And when to use the brakes
And tells me that it's never ever
Safe to overtake

It tells me when a light is red
And when it goes to green
It seems to know instinctively
Just when to intervene

It lists the vehicles just in front
And all those to the rear
And taking this into account
It specifies my gear.

I'm sure no other driver
Has so helpful a device
For when we leave and lock the car
It still gives its advice

It fills me up with counseling
Each journey's pretty fraught
So why don't I exchange it
And get a quieter sort?

Ah well, you see, it cleans the house,
Makes sure I'm properly fed,
It washes all my shirts and things
And - keeps me warm in bed!

Despite all these advantages
And my tendency to scoff,
I do wish that once in a while
I could turn the damned thing off.

I've discovered that it's more fun turning it on.
To the engineer, the world is a toy box full of sub-optimized and feature-poor toys.
