You quickly grab about 400 dollars in cash, and put it in your pocket. While Guido is in the can, you pick up the payphone, mime putting coins in, and fake-dialing. You then pretend to call the fictitious company, explaining your predicament. When Guido comes out, you quickly end the phone call.
Guido asks how everything is, and you say that your company will have everything taken care of, and you will stay in town for the night. You hand Guido a twenty, and thank him for giving you a ride and leave the diner.
Once you have given Guido the slip, you look for a clothing store. This town isn't too big, so you find one and buy another change of clothes. Nothing as nice as your suit once was, but better than a t-shirt and shorts.
It's about 7:10 now, and the streetlights just turned on. You now are down to $19,600 in the trunk, $310 in the pocket (I'm not sure what the USD was worth in 80's Austria, so just a rough estimate).
Do you look for somewhere to stay for the night, or do you try to hitchhike again?
