CHESTNUT HILL — Beaming with pride as he exited his 2014 BMW, Gerard Fisher, father of student Jonathan Fisher (CSOM ’19) reported that he had managed to beat his car GPS’s estimated time of arrival by over 10 minutes. “The navigation system told me we’d be here by 2:13, but Google clearly they don’t know who it was dealing with,” Fisher stated as a proud grin creeped across his face.

Despite his son and wife’s lack of enthusiasm for his incredible feat, Fisher nevertheless took pride in managing to make the journey from Westchester, New York to Boston in only 3 hours and 10 minutes. Elaborating on how he managed such a noteworthy deed, Fisher boasted that, “this thing tried to tell me to take I-95, but I’ve been driving long enough to know better than that, I made the executive decision to take I-84. Most people let the GPS redirect them, but not this guy.”

Fisher reported that he hoped to make the return journey in under 3 hours Sunday evening, a feat that would break his personal record and allow him to “get back to his den and enjoy a fat glass of wine before going back to the office on Monday.”
