Funny facts-Stopping to ask for directions

To all those who smirked at this week's news that male drivers waste six million hours a year by refusing to admit they are lost, we reply with the salutary tale of Michael Chapman, arrested and charged with stealing a car after stopping to ask for directions at the house of the car owner's father.

Chapman, 54, allegedly stole the motor in Hopedale, some 130 miles from Columbus, Ohio, and drove it for three miles before stopping randomly to ask the way at the house of Thomas Eltringham, who instantly recognized the gold Buick as his daughter Norma's and got Chapman arrested.

See where admitting your ignorance gets you?
