Your ass or a hole in the ground

June 18th, 2003 § Two comments

I spent a good ten minutes the other day looking for the UPS Store on Shattuck. It’s right by campus; I’ve walked past it a dozen times. But I couldn’t find it. You know why? Because I temporarily forgot that odd- and even-numbered addresses are on opposite sides of the street. What’s more, I didn’t realize my mistake until I had walked almost to Shattuck and Adeline—a half mile away—and dropped off my package at Shattuck Avenue Self-Storage.

Reminder: I am a graduate student in city planning.

    That’s awesome! I love hearing stories like that, especially from you Jeff. It’s just so unlike you! :) I do hope your graduate degree will assist in preventing similar occurrences in the future.

    So my friend John also recently moved to Berkeley for grad school. He’s in the Geography department. This is amusing, since the first time I visited him at his new place in Berkeley, he was trying to figure out which way was north.

What’s this?
