Since you were asking about your experience hitching a lift here goes:
We were just done skiing for the day, didn't wanna wait 2 hours for the next bus so we figured we'd try and hitch, got a lift off somebody in a van but said we' have to hang in the back cause they didn't have any seats in the front. Well as it turned out the "seats" they had in the back weren't so much seats as they were fully functioning toilets... wasn't the best experience.
To top it off, just as were we were about to get out something touched my friend on the shoulder, absolutely shit himself, and smashed his head off the roof. Turns out there had been a man not unlike smeagol(
) in there the whole time, just sitting in a corner... came across as a bit of a fucking weird experience, but all was well.
Ironically less than a month later there was another toilet experience on the way to Edinburgh. I was on the train with my dad, he went to the toilet, and flushed the toilet while the lid was up.
Well obviously the pipe had hit a rock or something, because all the toilet did was spit back up at him, he's trying to open the door and it's locked, stuck in a tiny room getting piss flung at him. Good times.
