Some years ago I was riding with a brand new wholesaler that I hired and we were approaching a busy toll booth on Chicago’s I-294.
He pulls up to the Exact Change coin bin and frantically searches for ANY money.
Then he looks at me with sheer terror in his eyes as the docile citizens of Chicago, stacking up behind us, began to lose their patience.
Panicked, he literally was frozen in place at the toll plaza.
I get out and beg the car behind us to take $1 in return for 2 quarters.
Lesson: Be ready for everything, and overlook nothing, when your manager is coming for a ride-a-along.
