EZ-Pass And Etc.

I overheard this while getting coffee this morning:

"I don't remember what the question was, but the answer was 'boobies'".

But that is besides the point.

I got a letter in the mail from EZ-Pass.

Dear Sucker,

During a recent EZ-Pass transaction you were clocked as going 40 mph above the posted speed limit. Blah blah blah. If you continue to do this, you may lose your EZ-Pass privileges.



Are you fucking kidding me?

I am doing YOU a favor. YOU get to hire LESS people because I CHOSE to BUY an EZ-Pass and then make PAYMENTS on it that YOU don't have to then pay part of to a cashier.

Go ahead, take it away.

On that note: I knew a guy in Florida (SUNPASS in Florida) who never bought a SUNPASS. Every single day he would go through the toll and not pay. Every couple of months he would get a ticket from SUNPASS and he would go to court instead of just paying it. No represenative from SUNPASS would show up (because they probably don't pay anyone to do that job) and the ticket would be dropped. Every time. He's been doing this for years. I'd be willing to bet that the same thing would be true for EZ-Pass.

I think you should test this theory and let us know how it goes.

That picture?! WTF, is toll booth rage that bad? I have gotten, ok and given, the finger, but that is scary. Hope it wasn't you in one of those cars.

If I had the balls to do it, I would. I don't even have any strap ons.

Yeah, screw EZ pass. I used to test the sensors and go as fast as I could through the lane to see if the light would go off in time. Naturally, I didn't do that with the ones that had the red and white striped bar across the lane.

Lastly, the answer to the question is "I need to come up with a Christmas present idea for my wife--- something that is fun and practical?"

I was just going 190km on the Autobahn on New Years day.

If I was Matt Dilion in the States, I would go to jail.

One has to love the Germans for making a great freeway system! : )
