Script launches multiple Terminals w/ incorrect path

Frankly, selecting an item and clicking the toolbar script icon gives me the same terminal window result as dropping the item onto the toolbar script icon.
Also, in practice, I often open a terminal window and change directory by typing cd and dropping the folder I want to cd to in the terminal. It would be nice if you could simply select this folder in the finder and then click onto the toolbar script icon to get the same result (instead of cd to the parent directory).
But then I think, it's just simply getting used to it.
Thank you,
Vincent
