why are men so terrible with directions?

my hubby is on his way home from a business trip 6 hours away, it was an overnight thing so he made the exact same drive yesterday. we have made the drive together several times.
well he calls me and says he was in la-la land and missed the turn off for the interstate that leads him southeast. and thus he had to take a backwoodsy road from there to home, and still had about 3 hours left of the trip lol!
i thought it was funny and cute in a way that he called me to navigate him from the phone. i know he made a careless mistake but it's still funny and i'm trying to keep the teasing level down. he still hasn't made it home yet. lol, poor guy.

  • Because they assume they are masters of the universe and don't need any help

  • I'm the one bad w/ directions. My DH used to be a truck driver so he is pretty darn good w/ directions.

  • My dh is awesome with directions. He can even tall how many redlights till your turn off. IF all else fails, we have navigation in the car.
