this may have been noted already but at several points (too many to count or be specific about honestly) in the game, trying to interact with something you aren't immediately next to will send you off on a wild journey to seek out whatever you clicked on rather than just making your character run next to it or take the shortest path to it. i've taken to walking as close to objects or people as possible before interacting so that this doesn't happen, but it'd be easier if character pathing was improved
