Memorial Bridge

When we were in Parkersburg for the Shophop we needed to go across the Memorial Bridge to the Ohio side. There is a fifty cent toll for crossing. Anyway, I approached the toll booth with my 2 quarters in my hand. The toll keeper said it was free, that the car ahead of us had paid our toll. I told him Pay it forward and gave him my fifty cents anyway. I said the car behind us would now be free. You know, I felt really good about this and I wish the driver who paid our toll could know how he affected me. There just are not enough incidents like this happening today. I had never thought of paying the toll for the next car in line but I am going to remember this in the future.
