Cool Ghost Story
This came to me in email and it made me grin. I have a follow-up (true) humorous story that I'll try and post tomorrow. My only sadness is not knowing who wrote this so I could give them proper credit. (Writers are always concerned with fair copyright practice, you know.)
A guy was on the side of the road hitchhiking on a really pitch black night in the middle of a thunderstorm.
Time passed slowly and no cars went by. The night was so black and raining so hard he couldn't see his hand in front of his face. Suddenly he saw a car moving slowly, approaching and appearing ghost-like in the pouring down rain. It slowly crept toward him and stopped.
Wanting a ride really bad, the guy jumped in the car and closed the door, only then did he realize that there was nobody behind the wheel.
The car slowly started moving and the guy was terrified, too scared to think of jumping out and running.
The guy saw that the car was slowly approaching a sharp curve, still too scared to jump out, he started to pray and begging for his life; he was sure the ghost car would go off the road and into the marsh and he would surely drown, when just before the curve, a hand appeared through the driver's window and turned the steering wheel, guiding the car safely around the bend.
Paralyzed with fear, the guy watched the hand reappear every time they reached a curve.
Finally the guy, scared to near death, had all he could take and jumped out of the car and ran to town.
Wet and in shock, he went into a cafe and, voice quivering, ordered a cup of hot coffee, black, then told everybody about his experience.
A silence enveloped the cafe and everybody got goose bumps when they realized the guy was telling the truth and was not just some weirdo.
About half an hour later two guys walked into the cafe and one says to the other: "Look Jethro, there's that idiot who rode in our car when we were pushing it in the rain."
