Even God Doesn’t Like Driving in NJ

Because the weather has made it near impossible to breathe outside this week, I’ve been driving my husband to work in Camden instead of making him suffer while waiting for NJ Transit buses. This has been great: he buys me coffee, then I fill up on gas while I’m over there.

So this morning while stopped at a red light on north US-130, I noticed the church on the corner changed its sign. It now reads “God lets you make U-turns, but not on Rt 130!”

Not the most hysterically funny church sign, but it made me snort a little coffee through my nose.

Have you noticed any funny, cute, or interesting signs lately?

    Not only does God not like driving in New Jersey, he despises the state for being communist and charging to leave the confines of the awful wasteland.

    $3 at that! Which bridge is only $2, Tacony-Palmyra or Burlington-Bristol?

    I know that the Burlington-Bristol bridge is $2, I’m not sure about the Tacony-Palmyra bridge.

    When I was at Penn State I always found it amazing the amount of anger directed at the one-way tolls between NJ and PA. Do people not see the logic of only paying a toll only once on a roundtrip? Are they aware that all the toll facilities are run by bi-state agencies? Or are they just looking for a reason to bash Jersey? I concluded it was usually all three.

    Yes I see the logic in only paying a toll one way but that doesn’t mean I have to be happy about it. Personally for me I think New Jersey is an utter wasteland with a beach. Since I hate the beach I have little use for New Jersey. When I do happen to get sucked over into the communist zone I am annoyed that I have to pay to leave the smelly cruddy area. I would like it much more if I had to pay on my way in, kind of like a warning (hey why would you want to go there it sucks but if you insist give us your three bucks).

    Not only are some of the toll facilities run by bi-state agencies they are sometimes run by more than that. It still doesn’t negate the fact that I am paying to get out of New Jersey regardless of where the money is going.

    And I am always looking for reason to bash New Jersey. From their craptastic hockey team (which no one in the state cares about regardless of them being good), the lack of left turns, the dickhead state troopers, the cruddy beaches and their cold dirty water, bitchy residents, stupid politicians, concerts being held in the ghetto that is Camden, to having to pay to exit the wasteland there is plenty to bash them for. Even some New Jersey residents I know bash their own state.
