NEW YORK TOLLS
I understand, to a certain extent, that tolls are necessary. I do not understand, however, why in God’s name New York thinks they can charge whatever the fuck they want to. Okay, so New York’s an expensive place to live, and I’m sure they need money to fix the roads that see so much crime traffic every day. But what the hell? How can most tolls be $1 everywhere else, yet it costs me $28 round-trip to get into Long Island. (We have to go through 3 tolls round-trip.) Long Island is an hour away, not ten hours. $28 fucking dollars? I could probably drive from Jersey to California and pay less than that. Do you know how many people travel to and from New York EVERY day? Let’s say there are 100,000 people traveling to/from Long Island every day…at $28 a person, that would be $2,800,000. That’s two million, eight hundred thousand dollars. Have you seen the roads in New York? Have you seen all the construction that never seems to end and never seems to actually help? What the hell are these people doing with the (roughly) $2,800,000 they get daily? Want to know what I’d do with $2,800,000? I would sue New York hurry up and fix the fucking roads so that people could have a pleasant driving experience! And if their excuse is that there’s no time to fix the roads, that’s bullshit. You make the sacrifice and you work from 10pm – 6am, one lane at a time, so as to not have to close down the whole road and cause more angry drivers traffic. You don’t set up cones and leave them there, and never actually do the work you lazy fart. Why is everyone okay with paying so much money in tolls? How is this even allowed? I should boycott these outrageous tolls. But since I can’t, I’ll just rant on my blog and feel better about it. Yup. K…bye.
P.S. I’m sorry if cursing bothers you, but I feel like you can’t have a rant without a few f-bombs.
