Mama always said it is a good way to get killed but 9 times out of 10 I will pick up a hitchhiker if they are traveling the same direction as me, there are no kids in the car, and I'm not running terribly late. What about you?
Edit: Where do you live? As one poster pointed out in their country it is a really bad idea. Here in the USA perhaps you have better odds.
I would imagine more times than not when approached at a gas station that I've allowed myself to be scammed out of cash by those "down on their luck". More times than not I will go ahead and give them 20 or 40 bucks. Have you ever been approached by one of these people? If so how do you normally handle it?Last edited by The_Yoda - on 26 March 2018
