New Jersey’s ‘God Bless You’ Toll Collector Moves On

New Jersey’s ‘God Bless You’ Toll Collector Moves On

There are different forms of customer service these days. A Garden State Parkway toll collector may have lost her job because of hers.

Most people are okay with hearing “God bless you” when they sneeze, but not in this case.

According to nj1015.com, Garden State Parkway toll taker Cynthia Fernandez was asked to stop saying “God bless” to drivers after she greeted them by her boss. Fernandez said she was just trying to be polite.

The 34-year old Fernandez greeted her customers with “Have a good day, God bless you,” but her boss Henry Lee told her to stop saying that. “He told me that I couldn’t say, ‘God bless you,’ anymore to customers because somebody might get offended,” she said, according to CBS New York.
