GPS Directs Amazon Driver into Golf Cart Tunnel

Most golfers keep their driver in a bag with the rest of their clubs. So, when Bill Offer, the outside services supervisor at Boulder Pointe Golf Club, was told that an errant driver was out of place, that’s what he expected to see. Instead, Offer was treated to the rare sight of an actual human driver, behind the wheel of an Amazon delivery truck that got stuck in a tunnel meant for golf carts.

Offer said, “Somehow he got inside the golf course and obviously he was not familiar with it. He said his GPS led him there. It’s too funny. It really is." A tow truck was required to remove the delivery vehicle from the smaller tunnel in which it was so tightly wedged. Offer quipped, “He was between a rock and a hard place.”

Eventually, an Amazon supervisor arrived with another vehicle to transport the driver and his packages elsewhere. The driver was said to be embarrassed, but otherwise fine. The novelty of the sight prompted jokes on social media, “I am going to guess that it's going to be a rough few weeks in the break room for this guy.”

Possible Preaching Angle:

If we're not careful, we can drift into error and not realize it until we've done major damage. We ought to be vigilant about the truth of the teaching and direction we're receiving.
