Strange as it may sound, the cheapest way to transport Phespirit and his seven companions from New York to Hackettstown turned out to be by limousine .....

A limousine was ordered well in advance, the destination address was clear and a straightforward map with directions was provided for the driver. There was just one problem: the driver was an idiot.

From his vantage point in the front passenger seat, it was obvious to Phespirit that the man was could not follow simple instructions. Almost from the moment he entered New Jersey he was lost. The most annoying thing, however, was that even when Phespirit tried to set him straight he still doggedly refused to change direction. It eventually took a highly frank exchange of views to steer him onto the right path.

Upon late arrival, Phespirit paid the bill. There was no tip.
