Who is the best person to inquire for an address/directions?When people visit a new city first time, often they have to ask somebody for directions for reaching any particular address. I have observed that often people ask any individual who is available in the vicinity . It is not an easy task to identify the best person to ask for directions. All people available in the vicinity may not be suitable for such inquiries.
Generally in rural and semi-urban areas, people tend to help in such matters even without themselves knowing the direction. They find it below their dignity to admit that they don't know and end up giving wrong direction which may be even opposite one.
A stranger who himself has visited the locality first time for certain job may not necessarily be knowing the exact address though physically present in the locality. So asking for directions from such person may not prove worthwhile.
