So I picked up some Rednecks....

....who were hitch-hiking on I-95 earlier tonight. Decent looking for a redneck couple (just some missing teeth, in need of a bath and some hair care products) who said they had their car stolen (not at gunpoint sadly). Their story seemed kinda fishy, but they didn't shoot or shank me so I guess they're alright enough. George and Cathy if you're reading this, go see a dentist.

Anyone else ever pick up hitchhikers and have a good story to go along with it?

    That is hilarious.

    I... I want some of those candies now.

    Mostly because in America "Redskins" is a slur against Natives.

    I'm pretty sure they had a Native American Chieftain guy on the wrapper as well, or at least they did when I was a kid. Are they even still sold anywhere?

    Holy shit I almost made a hitchhiker thread a week or two ago

    I picked up a teenage girl who had been ditched by her friend and said friend's abusive boyfriend in the middle of nowhere on my way home from work recently. I probably wouldn't have, but I felt bad because it was like midnight and nobody else would be driving out there so I just took her out to the nearest recognizable landmark and she called someone to pick her up.

    I picked up a guy named Jack while driving down the highway once. It was interesting, because twenty minutes earlier I passed up a guy walking on the side of the highway and hesitated long enough that I passed him up by the time I decided to pick him up. Jack needed to get to West Virginia in twenty days, where he had a construction gig waiting for him. While I drove him, he kind of ranted about Starbucks and fat people and looked at me funny when I had one of those cold coffee drinks in the cupholder. He was also kind of pushy, and I drove him a bit out my way. I think he said he was writing a novel too.

    Yes, and they got rid of the red tip as well, now they're just small white sticks of sugar.

    I seem to recall they had to do a similar trick for Big Boss Cigar candies?

    I picked up a guy who was hiking the AT while my dad and I were out on a short hike. Dude apparently hurt his knee a little and wanted a ride to the next major stop. We offered to take him down the way a little since we weren't going all that far. He started talking about how he ate ants while on the trail and he was concerned the other ants knew and were now avoiding him. I don't think he was going to make it all the way to Maine.

    I mean, I would pick up someone who really looked like they were in need. The only problem around here is that the only people you see hitching a ride are dudes that look like they would wear my face as a hat after they raped me to death.

    Fair enough I guess

    I hardly ever see hitchhikers so I am pretty sympathetic when I do

    I don't pick up hitchhikers because, well, I rarely see them, and most of them look like smelly gross faces.

    I was driving home from the city one night around midnight. I was along a dark stretch of road bordered by trees and wetlands with no streetlights or light of any kind but my own headlights. Even the moon was covered by the rainclouds that were periodically sending down a cold mist every so often as I drove.
    Up ahead on the road I caught a flash of light out of the corner of my eye, distracting me. As I got closer it flashed again, longer this time and it hit directly into my right eye. I slowed down and saw a man walking in the wet grass between the road and the guardrail carrying one of those little LED lights trying to discreetly flag me down with it. It was wicked creepy and all I could see of the man was silhouette and a bit of his shirt and no jacket, which was odd since it was pretty cold in the fall, especially when it was raining.

    I drove on by with a chill running up my spine and briefly considered pulling over to call the town cops and warn them a hitcher with a potentially dangerous method of sticking out his thumb was walking around in the pitch black and rain without a jacket at midnight. In the end I decided to just forget about him and hope he wasn't some dangerous crazy man.
