Pay the Bridge Toll for the Person Behind You

bridge toll on richmondThe “Paying the Bridge Toll for the Person Behind Me” post is part of My 40th Birthday Bucket List Extravaganza day.

I was driving over the Richmond Bridge on my birthday, feeling pretty good about myself after performing my first flying trapeze trick and knowing that I was going to pay the bridge toll for the person behind me. I jockeyed for position making sure that there was actually a car behind me to pay for. I was content with the 4-door blue sedan that was now tailgating me, though it was dark and I had no idea who the driver was.

“Today is my birthday and I want to pay for the car behind me too!” was what I told the bridge toll collector. She let out a laugh and I was on my merry way. I was giddy the whole way across the bridge; Who did I just pay the bridge tol for? Did I just make their day? Will they pay-it-forward the next time they cross the bridge? All that happiness for a mere 4 bucks! Totally worth it!

See my bucket list.
