A public service announcement to hitchhikers
If you are my mother or my mother-in-law and you are reading this: please do not be afraid that I am going to go out and pick up the first hitchhiker I see. I'm not. I do however think I know what they could do to get picked up more often.
Have you ever driven down the highway and seen a hitchhiker standing on the side of the road, thumb out? I have. Multiple times. And I've always said to myself, or Clark if he happens to be with me ~ Poor Clark, he's heard this a lot ~ "I would pick up a hitchhiker if they were walking to where they wanted to go."
It's that simple.
If you're walking, you're not standing there doing nothing. If you don't get picked up, at least you're that much closer to your destination then you were at the beginning of the day. It shows that you can take initiative. That you're willing to do a little work to get somewhere.
They should do a study on this. Don't ask me who "they" are. I don't know. I do know that IF I were going to start picking up hitchhikers, I would pick up the ones walking. Let that be a lesson to you.
*Author's note: No disrespect is intended towards hitchhikers, or people that don't have cars, or people that have to hitchhike for any other reason. This opinion is my own and if you're offended, please no hate mail.*
