    Are you forced to use your lambofeeties? Lay on the shoulder with a Edgar Allan Poe poem in hand?? Flag down a potential traveling rapist??

    experience and advice?

    1. Drop your pants and wave at passing cars
    2. Set something on fire
    3. Grab a stick and start swinging it at oncoming traffic

    Help will get there quick. They will be easy to spot with the light bars on the top of the cars. 'Help' cars are often black and white colored.

    2.... hope its not -10 and its 2am
    3... hope the the vehicle that stops doesn't have a dead body in the trunk
    4... just hope somebody even stops regardless if their a raper or not

    Lmfao, too good. Honestly if someone was waving a stick at me naked I’d pull over and offer them a cliff bar or something…”you good dude??” “Wtf happened to you??”

    I once was broke down off highway 70 middle of the night 10 degrees out next to a completely abandoned farm house with overgrown vegetation. I prayed and was blessed within the next 30 min with….nothing

    yes, in the trunk, to replace the one buried. It always comes full circle
