Wisconsin Ghost Story

My MIL sent this to us, and since we lived in Wisconsin and it is the season for Halloween I had to post it. Enjoy!



This happened just outside of Spooner, a little town in the northwoods ofWisconsin , and while it sounds like an Alfred Hitchcock tale, it's real! (Supposedly!!!!!)

This out-of-state traveler was on the side of the road, hitch hiking on a real dark night in the middle of a thunderstorm.
Time passed slowly and no cars went by. It was raining so hard he could hardly see his hand in front of his face.
Suddenly he saw a car moving slowly, approaching and appearing ghostlike in the rain. It slowly and silently crept toward him and stopped. Wanting a ride real bad the guy jumped in the car and closed the door; only then did he realize that there was nobody behind
the wheel, and no sound of an engine to be heard over the rain.

Again the car crept slowly forward and the guy was terrified, too scared to think of jumping out and running. The guy saw that the car was approaching a sharp curve and, still too scared to jump out, he started to pray and began begging for his life; he was sure the ghost car would go off the road and into a nearby lake and he would drown!

But, just before the curve, a shadowy figure appeared at the driver's window and a hand reached in and turned the steering wheel, guiding the car safely around the bend. Then, just as silently, the hand disappeared through the window and the hitchhiker was alone again!

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 as fast as he could into town. Wet and in shock, he went into a bar and, with a quivering voice, ordered two shots of whiskey, then told everybody about his supernatural experience.

A silence enveloped and everybody got goosebumps when they realized the guy was telling the truth.










About half an hour later two guys walked into the bar and one says to the other, "Look Ole, ders dat idiot dat rode in our car when we wuz pushin it in der rain."
