You reminded me of something strange that happened to me.
I was a teen at the time and driving in a different city from me. My first day at a new job. These were the days before smart phones and I was lost. I ended up about 3 miles from where I supposed to be going. I was driving round in circles. I was a bit distressed as I didn't want to be late for my first day on the job. I came across a roundabout and I had absolutely no idea which exit to take. It was a big roundabout and no place for pedestrians. I then noticed a white guy with no beard standing on the side of the road trying to get my attention. He had a jolly smile on his face. He starting pointing at an exit and was telling me to drive down that road. I took that road and kept driving for a couple of miles. I didn't recognise anything around me and started doubting going down that road. But I kept going and the road took me exactly where I wanted to go.
