After pulling over to let the hiker out the driver said to the hiker to remember. When you get on your feet pass a little giving along to the next needy person with the same request to pass it along.
A person picked up a young woman walking in the rain at night. Then took the woman to a housing project where she said she lived. Before getting out the woman asked how she could repay the driver for the needed help she received.
The answer was. When you can; give a helping hand to another and ask them to do the same when they can.
One will never know if the helping hands were ever passed on to others but the driver thinks they will.
I enjoy my coffee from cups I bought from the Salvation Army Thrift Store. Used but not abused.
Thank you LADYPINKtomato1 for the video.
That's really cool. I've always been nervous about hitchhikers, to be completely honest. There are some roads around here where signs are posted that read "DO NOT PICK UP HITCH HIKERS". Apparently in some cities it is illegal to do so. I guess you never know what you're going to find, and the last thing I would want to have happen is to lose my car with whatever may be in it (generally guitar equipment, wallet, phone, and laptop bag) in the middle of nowhere.
