Late Night Ride

Jerry was driving home late one night when he saw a young lady waiting by a bus stop. He stopped his car and told her that he didn't think the buses were running so late at night and offered her a ride. The fall night air was getting chilly, so he took off his jacket and gave it to her. Jerry found out that the girl's name was Mary and she was on her way home.

After an hours drive, they arrived at her home and he dropped her off by the front door. Jerry said goodnight and went home himself.

The next day he remembered that Mary still had his jacket. He drove to her house and knocked on the door, and an old woman answered. Jerry told her about the ride he had given her daughter Mary, and had come back to get the jacket he lad lent her. The old woman looked very confused.

Jerry noticed a picture of Mary on the fireplace mantel and he pointed to it and told the old woman that that was the girl he had given a ride to.

With her voice shaking, the old woman told Jerry that her daughter had been dead for many years and was buried in a cemetary about an hours drive away from there.

Jerry ran to his car and drove to the cemetery. He found his jacket neatly folded on top of a grave. The name on the headstone was Mary.

Happy Halloween.
