Another story. I’m on my way back from the airport, having just dropped off a family member. There’s a 10-long line of cars in front of most of the toll lanes, but miraculously the lane I want is completely empty. The light above the toll booth is green, so I drive in. As I fumble for the $3 I say to the toll taker, “I thought you were closed, there’s nobody here.” He replies, without a trace of humor, “hurry up before they figure out that I’m open!”
