A man was hitchhiking in Uruguay trying to get home from work when a car pulled over next to him. Gerhald Acosta was returning from work on foot and more than 30 cars passed without offering him a ride. After a while, a Volkswagen Beetle stopped right next to him, and the driver was none other than José Mujica, Uruguay’s president.
“I could not believe it. The president of my country had offered me a lift home. When I got out, I thanked him with all my heart. Not many people would let a stranger into their cars, much less a president!”
