    When you stop at a toll booth to pay the toll, after you pay the required toll, shouldn't you at least get a stick of gum, or a sucker, or maybe a handful of M&M's or something? Seems like there should be more than a surly "Thank You" and only part of a smile.

    I usually get a receipt, but I've never tried licking it.

    I have a bad habit of saying "thank you" at the toll booth.

    Inevitably my passenger will say, "what are you thanking him for?"




    Oh I don't know, thanks for the shitty highway? :lol:

    At least you got a 'thank you'. I usually get a grunt. :lol:

    My mailman used to carry a bag of dum dums around with him, to give out to the kids as he delivered mail.

    I like the New Hampshire turnpike when, to pay a toll, you only have to slow down to 65 MPH.

    The Florida Turnpike toll collectors are the best!

    I like the Oklahoma toll booth collector that goes "beep" when I buzz thru at 70.
