Out on the street, people ask for directions almost every day. A guy once asked me how to get to City Hall and I pointed to building across the street. But the most frequently asked question is how to get to the Social Security office at 17th and Delmar. I try to avoid answering this query if at all possible because even though the agency's local headquarters is nearby the shortest route involves a couple zigs and zags. The office is located across from Bob Cassilly's City Museum, but on the one occassion that I instructed a couple of lost souls to head in the direction of the building with the school bus teetering on the corner of the roof I was met with quizzical looks.
