This story happened a while ago in Dublin , and even though it sounds

like an Alfred Hitchcock tale, it's 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 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 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 f ...king idiot that got in the car while

we were pushing it!':svengo::svengo:
