    My 37 year old wreck project of a VW campervan which I drive everywhere... even my flatmates don't like going in it - they don't like being seen in such a thing

    No, but I would slow down and shout "Get a job, you tramp" all the while laughing at the irony that I don't have one and yet I'm not a desperate drug addicts looking for suckers to pray on.

    Charity is better than social security. :yes:
    No. It's not.

    If I had someone with me then depending on the circumstances I would. If I was alone, then no.

    i often see blokes on the side of the road holding up trade plates, which basically means they have gone to drop off someones brand new car from the other side of the country, and have been told there is one to pick up, but when they get there, it turns out that the customer has already part ex'd his old car to a local garage, and the guy who is delivering the car gets stuck on the other side of the country with no way back.
    i feel sorry for them, but i would still never pick one up.

    Then evidently our life priorities differ.

    My life is more important to me than "charity".
