Irish Ghost Story
>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
>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
>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 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 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 Bradford sobbing at
>the bar, one said to the other...
>"Look Paddy.....there's that f***ing idiot that got in
>the car while we were pushing it!!!!"
