An Irish Ghost Story

Sent from my iPad

Subject: FW: An Irish Ghost Story



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 big 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 

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 out of nowhere through the window, and turned the wheel. John , 
paralyzed with terror, watched as the hand 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 dark 
and 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  idiot that 
got in the car while we were pushing it!!!!'
