Directions from Women vs. Directions from Men

My mom insisted we go to an amazing bakery called "Union Bakery", which she was referred to by her friend, Stephanie. I googled the name but there was no such establishment in Vancouver.

So she obtained directions from Stephanie, which are shown at the top. I shook my head when I saw these and exclaimed, "This could only come from a woman!"

We eventually did find the place. It's not a bakery but a little corner store run by a Portuguese family and is called "Union Market". For contrast purposes, I rewrote the directions!

Incidentally, the bread there is delicious!!

Yes -- and the woman's directions are much more interesting. She tells a story and gets you excited about going. The male directions are just "Go here" That's it. No fun!

Oops -- And it looks like you have the wrong address. I believe it is 810 Union. So -- luckily for those other directions with much more detail one could still find it.

You're right! The original directions were real. I just faked up the "male" directions to provide the contrast. Clearly hadn't drank enough coffee.

Thanks!
