1. "Free hugs."

6. A guy in El Paso put a dent in my car when I refused to let him wash my windshield

At the time I lived there, there was a squad of people at pretty much every stoplight. Many people had stories about them getting aggressive in various ways.

7. Well, the innocent Canadian thought that "free" actually meant "free." Welcome
