He drives twenty blocks away from home and drops the cat there. The cat is already walking up the driveway as the man approaches his house.
The next day, he decides to drop the cat forty blocks away, but the same thing happens. He keeps on increasing the number of blocks, but the cat keeps on coming home before him.
At last he decides to drive a few miles away, turn right, then left, past the bridge, then right again, and another right and so on until he reaches what he thinks is a perfect spot and drops the cat there. Hours later, the man calls his wife at home and asks her, “Jen, is the cat there?” “Yes, why do you ask?” answers the wife. Frustrated, the man says, “Put that cat on the phone. I’m lost and I need directions!”
