The Hitchhiker 

I saw a hitchhiker today – I think that’s the first one I have ever seen – well in real life anyway I’ve seen plenty of them in movies and I’ve seen enough to know that it never turns out well for the person in the car that stops to help  – he was standing on the side of the road in Upper Ferntree Gully right on the bendy bit which goes up to Belgrave or left to Olinda and he was trying to flag a ride. I honestly didn’t think people actually did that anymore, I mean who would be silly enough to stop and give him a lift? He could very well have been a psychopath for all I know. 

I couldn’t help wondering about him though as I drove past and because the weather was so terrible today I hoped for his sake that someone would stop and give him a ride, because hopefully he was just a regular person like you and I who had found himself in need of a lift.
