LEAVING ON A JET PLANE

After a day of business in New Jersey, I am now excited about my trip home to Kentucky (and TN). I have blogged about that already. What really has my mind spinning now is New Jersey. These thoughts, in no particular order, crossed my mind today while traveling the length of New Jersey on the Turnpike

-In both Philadelphia and Manhattan: it's free to leave these cities to go to Jersey. However, it costs money to LEAVE NEW JERSEY to go to these cities (on the toll bridges/roads). Is this some sort of conspiracy to keep Jersey people out?

-SERVICE AREAS: are these places exempt from the same health laws that other food service places are required to follow? I mean, come on. How many hours can one roast beef sandwich sit under a heat lamp at Roy Rogers? (Answer: we don't know yet--one at Joyce Kilmer Service Area now holds the record at 18,273 hours.)

-TURNPIKE TOLLS: when you get on the turnpike in South Jersey, a machine kicks out a ticket. In northern New Jersey (near Manhattan), when you get on the turnpike, a person gives it to you. Are these workers members of different unions, with the northern workers being better negotiators, resulting in stronger job security?

-CONVENIENCE STORE CLERKS (only South Jersey): is there a requirement that if you work in a convenience store here that you must have hair that rises 25% of your body height above your head? And that fingernails must be 25% the length of your finger? And painted fire engine red?

Only in New Jersey, kids, only in New Jersey.
