This guy's being hurtled into space eighteen thousand miles. I think escape velocity is eighteen thousand miles an hour or close to it or something like that. We were too afraid to get into a play to go down there and live and cape canaveral and watch takeoff. Well we should all know too scary. Well his his vehicle is probably a lot safer than the seven twenty seven. You're going to go down to florida on. Yeah probably that was. That was pretty exciting. That is i mean. His voice did sound strange. Well it was. It was just like houston. We have a problem and he was from where houston must. Have those cheesy microphones and they've been using the same ones for thirty odd years because they all sound the same. Wow that was. That was pretty exciting. Good that's good.

So what can we do for you. The guy in the right is not okay. I have a little problem here in philadelphia. I feel like. I'm sort of a fugitive of sorts here My friends jonathan and david told me to call you and that you might be able to help. Okay i drive a teal okay. Nineteen ninety-one saturn which you'll need to know later. Okay yes and okay. I take a bridge to work every day. And they charge two dollars to get across this bridge. Okay that's a little pricey. But i have to take it so I have my dollars ready. And i'm waiting in a tow line. That's like fifteen cars long or something and at the last minute. I realized that. I'm in a coins only lane. And there's no way to get across the traffic shredding the dollars no choice of what to do with no this short notice. I had no way of pulling this kind of cash together. So i realized that it was also a toll lane. We're one of those arm. Things comes down. So it's not like i can just go through it. You're going to have to run the rapids as they say the wrapping green light weight into the guy in front of me through in his whatever. Three hundred quarters or whatever and when that arm thing went up floated buzzes off. There was mayhem everywhere. Jamaica's no one followed me. You made it onto though. I'm very lucky. I don't know how i did it but i made it under obviously discovered one of the best kept secrets in the world. Who was the chase you. Nobody my question is do they. Take a picture of my license. Is there some way that i could like. Send the two dollars in. Because i don't want them to send something to my house. 'cause my husband is going to be so mad so you have a guilty conscience about this really do but i don't want to get caught in the i'm honest and then they're going to charge me forty dollars for doing this right now. You may in fact be opening a pandora's box by confessing to the the crime may be subjecting yourself to a toll evaders fine. They'll take the two bucks from you and then they'll come to your house in a rescue. I was certainly let Here's what i would do. I would let sleeping dogs lie. I mean if you really feel if you real feels really feels some compunction to pay up if the toll is two dollars the next time you get in the line for the next eight times you get in line for nine quarters in. Yeah exactly. Okay you ever penalized. You'll get up it'll figure and other stoop that just put in too much money right the gate. We'll go up. And within two months you will have satisfied conscience. You'll satisfy the commonwealth of pennsylvania. Would they come get me. Is there any way they can get my address from my license can find out. It's it's called the betsy ross. Bridge five in pennsylvania where it recently burned down right by us. That's why. I had to take that bridge all right to reach the the pennsylvania transportation authority. Okay okay delaware's delaware pennsylvania Coming from new jersey into pennsylvania. Pennsylvania so the bridge bridges actually in pennsylvania jersey pennsylvania all. No it's a new jersey bridge over between the two states do all. It's the federal government. Then it's a federal offense. So i don't know okay. It seems to be run by the delaware port authority the delaware because it's over the delaware river. Maybe we have them on the phone. You gotta be kidding me. Oh my god you're not gonna believe this. Hold on a minute. We're not giving him your name. Evidently doug and ken have just somehow a hold of who on somebody. Who's the bridge manager. Hello don gale all cruel goodness. I really was ready to pay the two dollars. An sure for four miles going. Who are you really done. I'm the bridge manager at the betsy. Ross bridge really are. I really am. We don't get this two dollars fast. We might have to close this bridge No but but for other people who might wanna try with gail did. Do you take pictures. We we Do surveillance of the toll plaza. Do we take specific pictures. I am not at liberty to tell tell us but but the truth is that you. You could probably get through if that gay. Came down on gale's car. lord knows and destruction. No actually the the gates are made of a break breakaway. Would we wouldn't want to damage anyone's car not encouraged anyone to try to do that. We do we do. Patrol are plaza with our own police force. And we do pursue totally vader's and just for your information toll evasion find not forty dollars but more like two hundred dollars. You're gonna slammer. I don't think. I don't think gail wants to get yourself in trouble. Probably want dawn to know. Even her last name bush tape. Look how about this on. If gail sends the money to us and we send it to you anonymously in the name of gale gale anonymous. And she'll be off the hook right and you won't know who she is and she will not incriminate yourself. Is that okay with you. That sounds good. to me. Mcgill is not on my good side.
