A man and his wife are awakened at 3 o'clock in the morning
by a loud pounding on the door. The man gets up and goes to
the door where a drunken stranger, standing in the pouring
rain, is asking for a push."Not a chance," says the husband,
"it is three o'clock in the morning!" He slams the door and returns to bed.
"Who was that?" asked his wife.
"Just some drunk guy asking for a push," he answers. "Did
you help him?" she asks.
"No, I did not, it is three in the morning and it is pouring
out!" "Well, you have a short memory," says his wife.
"Can't you remember about three months ago when we broke
down and those two guys helped us? I think you should
help him. You should be ashamed of yourself!"
The man does as he is told, gets dressed, and goes outinto
the pounding rain.
He calls out into the dark,"Hello, are
you still there?" "Yes," comes back the answer.
"Do you still need a push?" calls out the husband. "Yes,
please!" comes the reply from the dark. "Where are you?"
asks the husband.
"Over here on the swing!" replies the drunk.
