I asked Dan Tokar, the master mechanic, for the prognosis. He replied: "Well, it used to he we had difficulties with the con- trol valve and the air pump. Now, I guess we've narrowed the problem down to the reliability factor." Good luck this Saturday, folks. SIGNPOST SYNDROME When I lived in Shepherdstown all year round, I would be asked direc- tions to various restaurants a few times every weekend. The requests were sometimes polite; more often than not, however, I was treated as nothing more than an incidental signpost. By contrast, I was always considerate and thought my ' assistance to the tourists to be a good deed and was only too happy to be of assistance to the distraught people who, while perfectly able to navigate themselves around the busy and com- plex city of Washington, D.C., were rendered helpless upon entering the quaint arena of Shepherdstown with its one main street. This weekend, as I was cycling along Route 480, wearing all of the spandex and various pieces of cycling equip ment required for a serious cyclist, a blue station wagon came up suddenly from behind. "Hey!" yelled the male sitting in the passenger seat. "Is this the way to Charles Town?" The station wagon drifted dangerously closer to the right, forcing me off the road. As I was concentrating on my ac- celerating heart rate and maintaining my safety on the narrow berm, I was in no way able to give this man ade- quate directions. I could only nod af- fwmatively. His head popped back into the car without so much as a thank- you. As a result of his rude action, I have decided to print a few tips for dealing with the lost tourist who forgets that manners still count in this world: 1) Misdirect the tourist party. This solution, especially seen from an economic standpoint, is not as dastard- ly as it sounds, for while the tourists are driving about willy-nilly round the county, they will have the occasion to pass more shops. "Well, George, I guess your forgetting the map has once again made us late for dinner. And now we're thoroughly lost. The least you can do is stop by that cute lit- tie store down the street and get the kids some souvenirs." 2) City folks are always in a hurry. If the tourists use their hurried state as an excuse for rudeness, give your directions veeerrry slowly: "'s see..." This approach, which I have already had a few opportunities to use, makes them grit their teeth and grip that steering wheel even tighter. 3) Try to engage them in mean- ingless conversation: "Wow! You all are going to the --restaurant, roast/bathroom soap dispensers!" 4) If the tourist party pegs you as one of the locals and therefore assumes that you have the intelligence quotient of a large houseplant, point out their lack of navigational skills: "Are you still lost?
