    This happened about a month ago just outside of Cocodrie, a
    little town in the bayou country of Louisiana, and while it sounds
    like an Alfred Hitchcock tale, it's real.

    This out of state traveler was on the side of the road,
    hitchhiking 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
    begging for his life; he was sure the ghost car would go off the road
    and in the bayou and he would surely 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 to town.

    Wet and in shock, he went into a bar and voice quavering,
    ordered two shots of whiskey, then told everybody about his
    supernatural experience.

    A silence enveloped and everybody got goose bumps when they
    realized the guy was telling the truth (and not just some drunk).

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