Posted:So I'm on the way back from last nights fire meet in Bath, and I see this guy, thumb out, by the side of the road. I'm on a high, of course, and feeling indestructable so I pick him up.

He LOOKED fine from the road, but once in the car acted like, really paranoid, kept looking out the back window and hid his face when a car overtook.

So we're talking about how hot it was today and after a break in the conversation I notice he has a duffel bag by his feet, so I say "so what's in the bag?"

He gruffly (I think he was Scottish) replies "none of yer f***ing business"

Being me, I thought he was joking, so I'm like "really though, what's in the bag?"

Again, "none of yer f***ing business, alright?"

So I sort of slow down the car and say, "look mate, I'm giving you a lift, the least you can do is be honest, what's in the f***ing bag?"

"NONE OF YER F***ING BUSINESS"

So I'm like "fine..." and I pull over and tell him to get out. He doesn't argue, just swears under his breath, and I burn off before he can barely shut the door, and I see him in the rear view mirror running after me and waving his fists.

I'm laughing hysterically at this point and can't believe what has just happened. It was only when I got home that I noticed the duffel bag, sitting in front of the passenger seat!


Magnus... pay it forward

Posted:maaaaaybeee *thinks hard* theres sthg naughty in it, that would get you into trouble and stop him being in trouble if you open the bag and look, hence his suspicious behaviour to get you curious and then 'forgetting' it and leaving it in yr car?

you're a naughty potato!

Posted:Here is my suggestion, we all go out and get ourselfs a duffle bag, stuf it full with whatever the hell we want and in any shape we want and make other people try to guess whats in it. then in about a 6 months to a year we can share what people have guessed have a duffle bag exchange. THEN WE WILL ALL KNOW WHATS IN THE F***IN BAG.

YEAH

Posted:Magnus! this is the most awsome coincidence! I was hitching last weekend, and i lost my bag to some incredibly nosey F***er who kicked me out his car, and took off with it! The answer is: a balloon, 3kg of white powder that's actually just baking soda, 4 Ragedy-Ann Dolls (one of which is blow up), and a small Tuba.

But seriously, you have no choice but to remove all identifying marks from the Bag(fingerprints, hair, cloth fibers) put on gloves that obviously don't fit your hands, and take this bag to a nice friendly place where you can pick up a free ride with a stranger. Stick your thumb out, and as soon as some one stops, toss the bag in, look them strait in the eye, and tell the driver "Sorry Mate, you just don't look safe!" and take off with out your bag. It would even work better if you had your own car right there to hop into for a faster get away.
