My friends the Turnpike-people... Wichita Reviews

I think that southern Kansas has the most friendly turnpike-people ever. (of course I really don't have any basis for comparison here because I am from the west coast and we don't have turnpikes back there.) What is a turn pike-person you ask?...well, it is that person that sits in a booth at the entrance to the freeway and gives you your ticket and takes your money. The turnpike-people will try their hardest to give you useful travel advice and help as far as they know, you just have to ask.
Here is a typical conversation between me and the turnpike-person at the booth that I frequent...
Him:"Good Morning, my friend! How are you today?"
Me:"Good, how are you?" Me:(thinking...(man, I'm really late, I hope he doesn't want to talk too long, this is why I'm taking the turnpike anyway cause it's faster.)
Him:"Good, my, you are up early this morning!"
Me:"Yep, I have a class this morning."
Him:"How's school going then..." and on and on and on...
You get the picture. Not always the most perceptive people in the world, but the turnpike-people in Kansas can be counted on to greet you with a smile a hello and a cheerful goodbye!
