A hitchhiker was walking back to his cabin after a failed ski trip, but it was a long walk away. A police car pulled up close and lowered the window. The officer asked the hitchhiker if everything was ok and if they needed a ride back. They accepted happily and had a enjoyable journey full with interesting conversations. It was some time later that they wanted to repay the favor and give the officer a gift as a token of appreciation and thanks, but then they learned some heartbreaking news.
