Have you ever been stranded somewhere without a phone to call for help? It can be nerve-wracking, especially when the weather is bad! Imagine being on the side of the road and only being able to see the headlights when they are very close to you! The rain is falling in sheets, and the wind is so cold and strong that it could knock you off of your feet if you weren’t careful. That’s what this poor kid was going through. He thought he had found the answer, but it turned out to be a huge mistake!
This story happened a while ago in Brisbane.
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 tequila. 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.. there’s the idiot that got in the car while we were pushing it.”
I have zero idea what I would have done in this situation! On the one hand, it’s a way to get out of that torrential rain…on the other hand, it’s a mysterious car that moves on its own! Too bad for this guy, he was the joke! I hope they all had a good laughed afterwards! Someone needs to buy this poor kid a drink!
