Following directions

A friend called earlier to make arrangements for me to pick them up somewhere I haven't been before.

I said "Give me the post code and I'll put it into the SATNAV"

"No. I'll give you simple directions which will be easier."

They then proceeded to give me directions such as "You know that bit of the M8 where you come off and then go round in a loop? Take that and then go back the way you came...blah, blah, blah" Err no, that route is not familiar to me.

Several roundabouts, viaducts, traffic lights later without mentioning a road number or street name I'd given up the will to live.

Do you think that SATNAVs are the way forward for you, or do you prefer the take the third road on the right go through three roundabouts and then take the slip road under the arch kind of set of instructions?
