* Happens ''in'' and around Albuquerque itself more often than anyone would care to admit...

to:

* Happens ''in'' Easy enough to do at a fair number of highway interchanges in the US, Especially from an Interstate to a US Highway or one Interstate to another. There will be two different exits, one for each direction the cross-road runs in, usually labelled as <number>A and around Albuquerque itself <same number>B. Within Cities, it can be even worse, with exits for two or more often than anyone would care to admit...different streets all exiting in quick succession.

* In Creator/MarkTwain's story "Captain Stormfield's Visit to Heaven", the dead protagonist must fly through space for thirty years or so in order to reach the gate to Heaven. On his way, he makes a single, minute deviation from his course, and ends up reaching an entirely different gate "billions of leagues from the right one."
