Who is that stranger along the road with the thumb up?
Hundreds of times we’ve passed hitchhikers along the road. A few times we’ve stopped and given them a ride. There have even been occasions when we’ve gone by so fast we hardly saw them, made a u-turn, returned and offered our service.
Oh, how wasteful we are.
Even as conservative and as much of a tightwad we proudly proclaim to be, we sure are a spendthrift, when evaluated honestly. It’s not just in a couple of places, but nearly everything we do actually demands more efficiency and appreciativeness.
