Prior to heading from Brookland to Samantha's Restaurant in Silver Spring the other day, I consulted Google Maps for directions.
The advice was thus: take a bunch of streets, then at the very end do a U-turn and head back in the opposite direction.
Really, a U-turn? That's the best way to get there, Google?
I initially mocked these directions, but upon closer inspection it does appear the U-turn was the best way to do it.
