look up any word, like darude - sandstorm:
When you avoid an otherwise unavoidable instance of having to pay, at the last possible opportunity.

An unexpected hope when there shouldn't be, but only when the consequences are minor.

Cheap desperation is the crux of the "brown man's exit."
We could pay the toll or take the brown man's exit and find another way.
