No Good Deed Goes Unpunished
While pulling out from the commuter parking lot, a young woman approaches. I estimate her age at mid-twenties.
“Mister, can I hitch a ride to the next exit?” she asks, smiling. Dressed in jeans and a T-shirt, her hair is pulled back into a ponytail. Her skin is almost as white as the cross trainers on her feet, like she doesn’t spend much time outdoors.
“Sure, get in.” I wonder what her story is.
As we approach the exit ramp, I see a large yellow sign.
And the sign read “Hitchhikers may be escaping inmates”.
Just my luck.
