TITLE: NICE THING #7 – Paying a Toll
DATE: February 27, 2010
I was headed north to Vermont for my writer’s retreat and along the way, there’s a toll for a bridge in New York state. A couple of years ago, while making the same trip north to visit my family in New Hampshire, I got to the toll booth with my dollar out and was told that the person in front of me had paid my toll. It made my day, to think a stranger would do something like that for me.
I paid the Hamilton Fish Bridge toll for myself and the car behind me.
I don’t know, as I didn’t stick around to find out, but the guy at the toll booth smiled and told me I had done a good deed for the day.
WOULD I DO IT AGAIN? Sure!
COST: $2.00 (my car and the car behind me)
TIME: Less than a minute.
