I was sitting drinking coffee in my slippers this morning, when I thought to myself... I really need to wash some mugs.

Hitchhiker: When you picked me up, weren't you a bit concerned I might be a serial killer?
Driver: Nah! The odds are extremely low that we'd both be.

Nice alternative version of the urban legend known as "The Vanishing Hitchhiker."

On the subject of hitchhikers, the short story "The Deadlier Weapon" by Larry Niven addresses the imbalance of power between the driver and a passenger with a knife
Quote:
Appeared in Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, June 1968. A rare non-SF Niven story. Car-jacking became a headline crime in the nineties, but this story about a hitch-hiker and his intended prey reminds us of something that many victims forget: The driver is in control of the deadlier weapon. Larry reassures us that it didn't actually happen to him, but the idea for the story occurred to him one day on the freeway
