Survival in USA #102
Never take road directions using national chains as landmarks.

We were trying to locate this place the other day and the person concerned had directions that read - "look around for a McDonald and then go on a little bit to the right and you'll see a Subway; next to that there'll be a Blockbuster and then just ahead of that you'll find Wendys ...". We figured (albeit the hard way) that any road in San Diego fits that description with a very high probability. So as a mark of caution, use the obscure small time joints, e.g. Jose's Red Sauce $3.50 Pizza. Poor Jose can barely make a profit with his spicy hot pizzas but the guy can be of all the help you need when taking you where you wanna go.
