    No. Been close to letting them in the bed of the truck, but that's not safe.

    I haven’t picked up a hitchhiker but I’ve been picked up before. On vacation in Gulf Shores, I dropped my dad off to golf, and I was driving back to the hotel. Well, my dad failed to tell me that when his car says you have a quarter tank you’re actually empty. Ran out of gas about 2 miles away from hotel. Started walking down 292 a little ways before an old couple asked me if I wanted a ride. I accepted thinking 17-year-old me could overpower these villains from Cloak & Dagger if I had to. They were just nice people who dropped me off at our hotel 4 minutes later. My dad was proud of me for putting trust in people.

    A long time ago I was traveling through Texas on my way to a concert with some friends. We picked up this woman hitchhiker who was really distraught. We couldn't calm her down, she kept saying something about a bad man and that we were going the wrong way, she pulled out a revolver and yada yada yada we didn't make it to the concert

    Once .Two girl. Arguably the craziest college night ever. Where do u start?

    We're leaving downtown clemson. Me, J, C ( who's actually an Olympian, but that's another story), and H. Driving back to the apt and we see a car that's smoking and two fine coeds.

    Apparently the girls who's car it was was barely able to walk, so the girl who was slightly less drunk decides to drive home, but it's a stick shift and .....yea......

    C knew one of them from from bio class. He hops in and drives them home...we follow .

    We get there and C and J and talking to them. I'm hungry. Ready to go get waffle house. All of a sudden some 5'2 light skinned dude comes down the stairs of their apt and says "wtf yall want? I bet yall won't be here when I get back" .


    This is when I realize I have a bright future ahead of me and decide it's time to leave .

    Me and H are in the car yelling at the other guys to hurry up so we don't get shot while J and C are trying to show that chivalry isn't dead or something, idk.

    He comes back down and drags one girl by her hair across the lawn while waving a fucking revolver he stole from Paul revere or something.

    J and C are trying their best to stop him. C gets basically pistol whipped while J gets punched in the stomach.


    Little man drags his girl upstairs and the other girl, J and C come with us.

    I wake up in the car at the police station. H is getting a dui and I have 10 minutes to have someone come pick us up or we all get drunk in public citations.

    Best man in my wedding shows up to pick us all up and the remaining girl had no idea who the other girl was. We never got an update.


    Edit: well, he got arrested, but we never talked to or saw the girl again.

    I remember being tempted to once when I saw a lady with a dog on the side of the road outside Columbus IN on an exit to I-65. Really felt bad for the dog being in such a dangerous spot

    But I didn't stop. And can't recall ever thinking about doing so since

    Helping someone who is broken down is a different matter

    Yes. A couple of times. Nothing fancy. Just gave a guy a ride as far as I could. Dropped one off at a truck stop.

    I went to pick my dad up at a bar one night. I had not been drinking. Local VFW. Well some dude said he needed a ride home. Easily an hour away. He offered me $200. Jump in mother fucker. I had a Buck knife by my side. I really wasn't scared of this skinny drunk fuck.

    Told my dad I will be back in a couple of hours. Drove that dude home three counties over. Made him fill my tank up on top of the cash. He tried to give me the shitty brown bag half gallon he took to the bar. I threw that shit out with the quickness.

    Went back to the bar and picked my old man up.

  22. I did once, but I would see this guy all the time at places in town and near where I lived since he didn't live far from where I lived and I had talked to him a few times because he's a pretty friendly guy. He is on disability, doesn't have a car anymore because he can't afford it, and the public bus routes don't go out into the county. He walks from his house to in town and vice versa, which is several miles one way, if he can't get someone to take him. He then uses the bus in town. He was leaving Walmart as I was arriving and he asked if I could take him home so I did. I actually never saw him again after I dropped him off, wonder if he died?

    5 times. Three were normal and trying to get back to their broken down car.

    One was an old homeless man trying to reach his daughter’s house. When we got there, she wanted nothing to do with him and wouldn’t let him in. It was cold and he had nowhere to stay. I drove him to a restaurant next to a motel, and got him a room and a meal. I got him some clothes and shoes (toothbrush,deodorant, and a razor too) from a Wal Mart nearby, and put them in his room for him.

    The only crazy one, was when I was in high school. I was driving home and saw a guy waving at me like he knew me. I slowed down, and this guy basically jumped in the car without an invitation. It turned out he had just gotten out of the jail up the road, and he started yelling about the girl who got him locked up. I’m a good size guy, but this guy was Randy Johnson on steroids (mullet and all), so I was trying to think of a way to get him out of my fucking car. The place he wanted to go was about 20 minutes away, and he was getting agitated that I didn’t have cigarettes, so I told him I’d give him some cash to get some at the next gas station we saw. When he got out to buy them, I took off quickly. I wouldn’t be surprised if he was trying to get me to drive him to the girl’s place, and for me to be his getaway car when he murdered her. This guy should have stayed locked up.

    I gave a guy a ride 95% of way home once when it was colder than fuck and was snowing like crazy. He just got off work at Wendy's and ducked into gas station to warm up. I was going his way and it took 30 mins off his trip by foot. I actually saw him at Wendy's drive thru like a month later and he hooked a brother up with like 3-4x the normal fries lol

    Once. Picked up a guy along the interstate for some reason that I don’t know. Turns out he had blown a tire several miles back and didn’t have a spare. Looped back to his car, got the tire, took him to the next exit that had a truck stop and got his tire fixed. It was completely uneventful.

    I have a couple times but I make them ride in the bed of my truck. Once I had taken my dog up to the mountains to walk around and explore a bit. I was probably 18. It was late fall and was getting cold at night. On my way back around sundown there were a couple hikers hitch hiking down the dirt road. They were still 5 miles from town and would’ve had a cold ass hike back to town in the dark. Picked them up but told them to hop in the bed while my dog sat up front. Dropped them off at McDonalds in town no prob.

    I feel pretty safe if they’re in the bed of my truck seperated from me. I don’t know if I’d ever pick one (especially two of them) up if they had to sit directly behind me where I couldn’t keep an eye on them.

    I do regularly, but it's a different scenario than if I were in the US. It's a small place and most of the hitchhikers are Haitians that are just trying to get to or from somewhere nearby. Nothing nefarious is ever happening so it's just something you do to help someone out. Not like giving someone a lift in a city of 10M people.

    Was getting some candy around the corner from the place I worked in a shit part of town at a gas station. My first job and I was 23. Guy walks out with me and starts asking me to take him around the corner to his apartment. Immediately I knew his plan was to kill me for my $2,000 200k mi Camry and the $8 in my pocket. I of course said sure, get in. He talked the entire time and we had a conversation but my mind was entirely on when I was going to ram us into a tree when he pulled a knife. Got to his apartment a block away, he thanked me and tried to pay me $3 for the ride.
