Imagine you’re on a long road trip and you’re currently in the middle of nowhere. No stores and no restaurants anywhere nearby. Even Waze says that nothing is coming up anytime soon. We forgot to mention that you’re starving and you forgot to drink coffee this morning. After a few miles, you see a gas station coming up.
