Right, turn Left

I give confusing directions!

Or at least, I determine they must be, since the woman standing in front of me has a confused look on her face.

"So which way is the parking garage?" she asks again.

"That way," I say with the utmost confidence, as I have parked there many times. I point in the exact geographically accurate direction of the garage.

"So I take the escalator up and then turn which way?" She's still confused, despite my Very Authoritative Pointing.

"Left," I reply.

"At the top?" she clarifies.

I nod, beginning to think with dismay that I am the Worst Direction Giver that ever there was.

"Okay!" she says and sets off.

She walks to the escalator and starts up it. Only she doesn't quite, because she's trying to walk up the down escalator.

I feel my self-confidence return.
