Do We Rely on Technology Too Much?

Yes, technology is great. But it can sometimes let us down. In the worst ways.

A woman in Colorado was on her way to the airport in Denver to pick up her husband. She came across an accident along the way. Traffic was tied up indefinitely. She wanted to be on time for her husband’s flight. What did she do? She relied on Google Maps to help with a detour around the accident to get to the airport. Something many of us have done.

Unfortunately, this time didn’t pan out for this woman. She was led to a dirt road. A dirt road that had gotten pretty muddy from recent rain storms. She wasn’t the only one. She found there were about a hundred people who also took the same detour. Some people got stuck and she ended up with 2 other people in her car.
