Happy Easter, Illinois Roads Suck, Gas Pump Bank Hold



I want to first start off by wishing everyone a Happy Easter. A few days late, but better late than never LOL.  I hope everyone had a good and safe Easter. Hope everyone had a great Easter!

I took a road trip over the weekend. I took a good friend of mine to go see his dad, before he passes away. He was able to see his dad again. He also got to see his family and a son he hasn’t seen in years.  I am happy my friend was able to see his dad.  Because he texted me earlier tonight and said his dad was not expected to make it through tonight. So I am happy we made it and he was to able to see him again.

I been telling people for awhile now, that if you pay at the pump with a credit/debit card when you get gas, the bank charges you extra.  And below is proof. We stopped at a gas station, and this was posted on the pump. I been telling people for a long time, to walk that extra 30 feet and go inside and pay for your gas inside. So you avoid all this BS. For all of you who did not believe me, here is the proof.

I can tell you one thing, Illinois has the worst roads ever!  And I am saying this nicely!!!  OMFG, The roads in Illinois are terrible!  Why do they tax the citizens to fix the roadways, but do not fix them?  I mean seriously, they taxed the citizens a lot to fix the roads, then the roads are not even fixed. Or even close to it!!!   I was spoiled driving on the roadways outside of Illinois.  They were soooooo smooth.  I did notice one thing, you get to the Springfield area, the roads were nice. Then pass Springfield, and the roads turn bad again.  And all the roads outside of Illinois, literally as soon as you leave Illinois, are smooth.
