My friend and I had just visited Belfast Castle in Northern Ireland and we were trying to catch the bus going back downtown where we were staying. We could see the stop across the street, but crossing the busy four lanes of traffic was not happening. After seeing the bus go by before we could cross, we decided to simply take the bus going in the other direction. Being from a small town where busses are practically non-existent, we assumed that it would take us to the end of the route then turn around and come back downtown. We were wrong!
The bus didn't follow the path we expected but my stubbornness ruled out and I refused to ask for directions. The driver finally called out "last stop, everyone off!" and we ended up walking over an hour through an industrial sector to get to the nearest bus stop that would take us back to town!
