An Irish Ghost Story..

This story happened a while ago in Dublin , and even though it sounds
like an
Alfred Hitchcock tale, its true

John Bradford, a Dublin University
student, was on the side of the road
hitchhiking on a very dark night
and in the midst of a storm. The night
was rolling on and no car went by.
The storm was so strong he could
hardly see a few feet ahead of him.
Suddenly, he saw a car slowly coming
towards him and stopped. John,
desperate for shelter and without
thinking about it, got into the car and
closed the door, only to realise
there was nobody behind the wheel and
the engine
wasn't on!!

The car started moving slowly. John looked
at the road ahead and saw a
curve approaching. Scared, he started to
pray, begging for his life.
Then, just before the car hit the curve, a
hand appeared through The
window and turned the wheel. John, paralysed
with terror, watched as the
hand repeatedly came through the window, but
never touched or harmed

Shortly thereafter John saw the
lights of a pub appear down the road,
so, gathering strength, he jumped
out of the car and ran to it. Wet and
out of breath, he rushed inside
and started telling everybody about the
horrible experience he had just
had. A silence enveloped the pub when
everybody realised he was crying
and....wasn't drunk.

Suddenly, the door opened, and two other people
walked in from the
stormy night. They, like John, were also soaked and
out of breath.
Looking around, and seeing John Bradford sobbing at the
bar, one said
to the other. "Look Paddy.....there's that bloody idiot
that got in
the car while we were pushing
