Just this past weekend, I headed out east for a getaway with a bunch of my girlfriends from college to Fire Island, NY. It's a little island located right below the south shore of Long Island. The only way to get to this island is by ferry. But even before that, if you're coming from Manhattan, you've got to catch a train, and a shuttle bus.
One of my friends knows me so well, that 4 days prior to the date of my impending arrival, she sent me a detailed email including step by step directions on how to get to our house on Island. So, I was planning on going there on a Friday, and she sends me this email on Monday. It literally had minute to minute directions, and then options if I was going to be late. It was EXACTLY what I needed.
