Nicknames

Common Name Abbreviations
This struck my funny bone, hard.

We went to Hawaii a couple of weeks ago. Our flight arrived around 11PM. We rent a car and my wife pulls out her smart phone and it starts telling us how to get to the resort. This works great around home because I recognize the street names, but here it's no help at all. "Turn left at hokohokohooky street", "turn right on hokohokohokohoony street". Wait, what? It was like the phone was speaking in a foreign language. It was no help at all. It wasn't a complete disaster, we only made a couple of wrong turns. I mean it's an island, there are only so many places you can go.
