Construction work often can be a pain to drive through.

We are busy people with places to get to, and road work or other such construction jobs are just delays.

Usually after driving through construction sites, my mother and I are irritated and/or annoyed at how slowly we pass through. Recently, we have been passing through the construction work on Route 201 in Farmingdale quite a bit.

In spite of frequent complaints, however, there is a particularly nice, cheery worker who often holds the stop-slow sign. Every time a car passes through, he waves and gives a kind smile to the people in the cars.

Now whenever we pass through there we look for him and make sure we wave back.
