Recalculating . . .
I guess this is really just a private joke in my family that I'm sharing today. We never had a vehicle with a navigation system, but when we took the kids to Europe for the first time in 2005 we rented a car in Germany (they upgraded us to a BMW although we had paid for a compact!) that had a built-in system. It provided some good laughs. First we couldn't figure out how to change the language from German to English, so I was constantly shouting translations from the passenger seat. Then, once we switched the navi to English, we got the giggles over how often and indifferently the "voice lady" would say, "Re-calcu-la-ting . . . " every time we stopped for gas or an unexpected sight or somehow got lost. Guess you had to be there . . . .
