I'd consider picking them up if I were alone.  I have before.

Nothing :( ex is a cop, and I would just imagine them beating us, etc. I may gave them a few bucks, but NEVER a ride. Plus, born and raised chicago. so I don't mind public transportation.

haha I still don't drive, but if I was a passenger in a car and we had the room I would suggest we stopped if the situation looked safe, Sad that I even think that way, but with so many sick people about now days id be more inclined to think it was a scam.

It depends. If I was without my kids I would probably stop and see if they needed to use my phone or something.....but if I had my kids I would not. You just never know what people are up to now a days...

Well being from NY, I would do nothing. I don't trust anyone. Probably just wonder why they were doing that when then they can take the bus or train.

 This is exactly what I would do.  I can't jeopardize mine and my child's lives.

HaHaHa!!! SoOo true. Being from ny, you see a lot of crazy things. One time I was on the train, I seen a man (dirty looking) with a child (dirty looking also) in a old broken stroller asking for money. Everyone gave him money. Then a couple days later, in a store I seen that same man clean, shaved and well dressed and was shopping. Also was talking to his friend about his job. I was shocked. Most likely that wasn't even his child in the stroller. A lot con artists use kids for their con game.
