    Australian Ghost Story

    >This story happened a while ago in Brisbane, and even though it
    >sounds like an Alfred Hitchcock tale, it's true.
    > John Bradford, a Sydney University student, was on the side of the
    >road hitch hiking 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 in the car
    >and closed the door, just to realize there was nobody behind the
    >wheel and the engine wasn't on!
    > The car started moving slowly. John looked at the road and saw a
    >curve approaching. Scared, he started to pray, begging for his life.
    > Then, just before he hit the curve, a hand appeared through the
    >window and turned the wheel. John, paralyzed with terror, watched
    >how the hand appeared every time they came to a curve.
    > John saw the lights of a pub down the road so, gathering strength,
    >jumped out of the car and ran to it.
    > Wet and out of breath, he rushed inside and asked for two shots of
    > He then started telling everybody about the horrible experience he
    >went through.
    > A silence enveloped everybody when they realized he was crying
    >and....wasn't drunk.
    > About 15 minutes later, two guys walked into the same pub. They were
    > also wet and out of breath. Looking around and seeing John Bradford
    >sobbing at the bar, one said to the other, "Look, Bruce.. here's the
    > bloody idiot that got in the car while we were pushing it."
