A bit of this, a bit of that and a lot about computers

I need a new word

Yesterday I was going to meet a friend. I arrived very late due to poor planning on my side (leaving late) but also because I got lost. Well… I didn’t really get lost. I knew exactly where I was all the time. Pinpoint accuracy by my GPS. But I didn’t know how to proceed because buses got diverted, some may have been cancelled but I wasn’t sure.

One part of the definition of “lost” is the correct one:

Unable to find one’s way

but the other part is not:

not knowing one’s whereabouts

and when I say I got lost, I may sound like a lier: “How can you possible get lost with your phone/GPS/google maps?”. I need a new word that means “I know where I am but not how to proceed.”

    I know how you feel. I’d try “confounded”, and I just found “metagrabolized”. Hilarious :-).
