So I’m driving on the PA Turnpike between Pittsburgh and Harrisburg and there’s some construction and I have time so I think. What a nice day for a drive except for the huge amount of construction.

Is it really fair that, when I have multiple single-lane, speed-reduced, merge left, merge righ, slalom cone courses, that I have to pay the full fare on the turnpike?  I mean, when retail agencies have customer inconveniences, don’t they offer incentives, i.e. discount, as a way of saying, “sorry for the inconvenience?”

Yesssssssssssss I realize there has to be road maintenance and I get that there will be some kind of inconvenience and delay.  And another yessssss… I must decide not to always leave late to everything so that, when these construction activities happen, I’m not yelling at everyone about how late I am about to be.

But……how about a little “Pardon our mess, thanks for visiting, yes, we realize we have you by the virtual testicles but we’re gonna think of you as our customers for once”  inconvenience discount on my EZ Pass.  If I knew I was getting a discount, I might even wave to the construction people with ALL of my fingers, not just the middle one, Ya Jagoffs!
