a Dublin University student, was on the side of a lonely road hitchhiking on a very dark night in the midst of a mighty storm. He could see only a few feet in front of him. Suddenly, he saw a car
slowly coming towards him. The car stopped, and John, desperate for shelter, wrenched open the door and climbed in. He became aware that the engine was not running, and there was no one steering the vehicle. The car began moving. John looked at the road ahead and saw that the car was approaching a
bend in the road. Terrified, he began to pray, begging for his life. Then, just before
the car hit the bend, a hand appeared out of nowhere through the window and turned the wheel. John, paralyzed

to it. Wet and out of breath, he rushed inside and started recounting the horrible experience. A silence settled on the pub. But when the patrons saw that he was sober and that his terror was genuine, they paid attention to his story. Then the door opened, and two people
at the bar. One turned to the other and said, “Look Paddy.....there's that bloomin’ idiot that got in the car while we were pushing it!...!!!
