E-ZPass is an electronic highway toll collection system that’s used in the northeastern United States, including Wendy’s home town of Boston. With an E-ZPass transponder in your car, you don’t have to bring you car to a stop and fumble for change to pay your toll; you simply slow down enough to safely pass the toll gate, where a sensor scans your transponder and makes the appropriate debit to your account.
If you’ve ever seen two people pursue the last cookie on the plate, the last seat on the train or the last available-looking single at the bar, you know what kind of disastrous hilarity can result. Here’s what happens when two determined E-ZPass users in a hurry race to the be the first through an E-ZPass-equipped toll gate, with mercy neither asked for nor given:
