This is a question Hitchhiking and fare dodging

Epic tales of the thumb, the open road and getting robbed by hairy-arsed truck drivers. Alternatively, travelling for free like a dreadful fare-jumping cheat. Confess.

My brother and a friend went hitchhiking to Mont Blanc to enjoy the skiing. On the journey there they
discovered that Mont Blanc and neighbouring mountains had become covered in Saharan sand and the skiing was pretty much cancelled. End of holiday and the slog back to Blighty began. First car to stop was a brand new Mercedes limousine complete with chauffeur and the rear windows came down. There was a couple in the back and they asked where my brother and friend were going. After some dialogue the ruined skiing trip was mentioned and the couple asked the pair if they would like to spend time working at the chateau. They agreed.

The chateau was spectacular and my brother and friend were accommodated in the "servants" building. Meals were with the hosts in the main building. For five days the pair carried out small tasks around the place and that is pretty much the end of the story. Apart from the hosts paid for their flights back to the UK.

No fucking or anything untoward took place. Well done rich frogs.

You are aware that siblings are both younger and older. Sometimes
much older.

Ok, they were the Louis-Dreyfuss family and it was all 'Last days of Sodom', 'Rosemary's baby' and
Star Wars.

tales of being nice.

Don't have to pay salary, tax, social security, insurance etc.
Get a pair of English saps to work on your house all week for nothing but meals and a couple of cheap flights.

Had a French client try to retain my services full-time for an entire year on an open freelance contract basis, thus ensuring they wouldn't have to pay any of that pesky salary, tax, social security or insurance, and conveniently ignoring the fact that working for them full-time for a year would have resulted in me losing all my other clients.
