Do you ever notice the men on the side of the highway sitting down on their suitcase with their thumb out?
Yes, I know they're called hitchhikers. Ever pick one up? Come on confess. Ok maybe not.
My thing is if you're really trying to get somewhere then start walking. If I see you making an effort to get where you're going then maybe I'll pick you up and help you out. If you're just sitting on your a** then just keep sitting. Maybe you'll get there by osmosis. :)
