It sure does, no worries. As a youth, I once drove 25 miles to a job interview at a waterside restaurant, couldn't find the place. I pulled in a gas station for directions, they pointed across the bay, right at it - about 50 miles away by road. :eek: Needless to say, I was late for the interview and didn't get the job. :D
