In the recent times, Google Maps have been an eminent part of our dat-to-day life, especially for the ones who have to travel to unknown locations on a daily or regular basis. We can’t deny the fact that almost all of us have used and come across this application once in our lifetime during several instances related to location and road enquiry. But do you know, on one hand this app is very useful and easy to use whereas on the other hand it can’t be trusted blindly i.e. it is not completely correct or foolproof.
In a recent instance we have come across such incident where a man wittily tweets on how the Google Maps asks him to drive into a mango tree and netizens can’t really keep calm looking at it!
Not Google maps leading us into the bush and having the audacity to say “turn left”. Into the mango tree?

Soon Twitterati got flooded with responses and people started sharing incidents which happened with them. For instance, one user told that Google Maps took him to a village with dead end while another user told that Google Maps took them on a bridge and asked them to turn right and jump into water.
I’ll never forget the day we used Google maps to travel to Calabar by road. Before we knew it, we were in one village with a dead end. Google maps said we should continue going 😭😭

That’s how Twitter responded with absolute wit and humor sharing their experiences with Google Maps- though these applications are extremely user-friendly and efficient in some ways yet we cannot rely or trust on them blindly, and as we all know ‘looks can be deceptive at times’.
