Oh no she didn't
This blog post has nothing to do with Hawaii, but it tickled me silly to read about a Ohio woman, probably frustrated with high gas prices and road construction, who sent a $16 bill notice to the Michigan state transportation office. She claimed that she is owed the money for the gas used while sitting idle for 50 minutes in a construction traffic zone, which had no warning signs posted. Her cat was especially annoyed by the delay, she said, whining the entire time. I wonder how many bill notices our department of transportation office receives from drivers demanding to be reimbursed for unexpected gas use caused by work zone delays.
