True Australian Ghost Story

This story happened a while ago in Sydney,
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 towardshim and
stopped. John, desperate for shelter and without thinking
about it, got in the car and closed the door, just to realise
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, paralysed with terror, watched
how the hand repeatedly came through the
window but never harmed him.

Shortly thereafter 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 started
telling everybody about the horrible experience
he had just experienced.

A silence enveloped the pub when everybody realised he
was crying and ?... wasn't drunk.

Suddenly two other people walked into the same pub.
They, like John, were also wet and out of breath. Looking
around and seeing John Bradford sobbing at the bar,
one said to the other, "Look, Bruce ?? there's that f*cking
idiot that got in the car while we were pushing it."
