Lost

‘For god’s sake, Margie, where the hell are we?’

‘I ... we must be ...’ Margie twisted the map, peeked over it at the passing landscape, then back at the map.

‘You haven’t got a clue, have you! All you had to do was read the flipping map.’

‘I’ve been reading the flipping map! You must have taken a wrong turn.’

‘How could I have taken a wrong turn! You’ve been telling me which turns to take.’

‘Don’t yell at me!’

‘Do you have any idea where we are?’

‘No, but neither do you!’

‘I wasn’t reading the stupid map!’

Rob - Oh, yes, that's definitely a true-to-life conversation. Thanks for this! I really like the way you show so much just through dialogue.

This sounds all too familiar.
