AN IRISH GHOST STORY

John, 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 in 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 stop. John, desperate for shelter and
without thinking about it, got into the car and closed the
door.... only to realize 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,
paralyzed with terror, watched as the hand repeatedly came
through the window, but never touched or harmed him.

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 the pub.

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
realized 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 sobbing at the bar, one said to the
other...'Look Paddy...there's that freakin'
idiot that got in the car while we were pushin' it.'
