This is for advise you know how to give, but don't know how to take yourself.
I strongly tell everyone not to stop for strangers on the road, especially to pick them up. They can call the police instead.
I used to do this were I used to live and thought once I move, I won't do it again. Oh, well. I guess something happened in my synapse that doesn't allow that message to reach me when I see either man or woman on the side of a road or highway.
First, I told myself only to stop for women with children, then it included men. I told myself not to stop for a van or in the dark (that was forgotten). Then not to give anyone a ride. (Opps, there goes that short term memory again).:nono
What good advise do you give others, but fail to follow!
