Men's refusal to ask for directions is simply lost on me

Over a lifetime, an average man will travel an extra 900 miles lost rather than ask for directions. I'm not surprised.

I don't ever recall my father asking for directions. No matter how lost we were, no matter how many hours we had driven in the wrong direction, hell would freeze over before he would ask anyone for directions.

He is not alone, men do not like asking for directions … ever. As a woman I don't understand it. If I'm lost, the first thing I'll do is pull over and ask a local person for directions. It seems like the most logical and obvious thing to do. I have tried explaining this to my husband, who doesn't seem to share my view.
