Well, mystery shop day today. I have to go deep into the heart of Richmond to do this one but I think I am going to take an alternative route to get there. It is going to be a bit out of the way..but honestly, it makes me nervous to go through all those high traffic areas. I do have a transponder now that I can use to take care of the tolls..but I would rather not deal with them. Do you ever go an alternative route to get somewhere, even though there is a faster way? Have a good one today! I was trying to post pics of the kitty on here last night..but my equipment was not cooperating..not sure why..hmm.

Neither do we. The government removed all of them some years ago.

When traffic is high here drivers cut corners and even drive longer distances to get to their destination. It's only the fuel that might be a cost. At least they saved some time.

Yeah this way was a bit longer but it is a decent trade off. I have arrived with unfrazzled nerves.

@snowy22315 don't forget the black cloths and mask under the trench coat, so you don't stand out as the mystery shopper!

@Marty1 my special spy garb and tools! Sometimes you do have to take a disguised recorder or camera..but my last "video" shop was a bust..so..I prefer the more straight forward ones.

I am the same way. I avoid the tollways here just because the drive is so hectic so I take an alternate route. Driving on Chicago-area tollways is nerve-wracking to me.

@snowy22315 I have gotten lost a lot!!! I haven't the desire to figure out the GPS in my car that I have had for 3 years, but one day, I just might.

I always try to take the easy way out - or in! Hope it's not too stressful.

It wasn't because I took the out of the way route.

Enjoy your mystery shopping today. It never used to bother me driving in high traffic areas but lately I seem to look for alternate routes that aren't so congested.

Yes, I don't like congestion..it is the worst in the morning and evening of course..during rush hour times. I hate having time deadlines and having to drive thru heavy traffic.

Yes, I like to stay to the outskirts..easier on me..and less potential of a traffic jam.

I am extremely nervous of toll roads so I avoid them at all costs. I've driven a half hour out of the way the past summer to avoid one.
