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 3 o'clock in the morning! He
slams the door and returns to bed. "Who was that?" asked his wife.

"Just some drunken guy asking for a push," he answers. "Did you help
him?" she asks. "No, I did not, it is 3 o'clock in the morning and it is
pouring out there!" "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, and you should be
ashamed of yourself!" The man does as he is told, gets dressed, and goes
out into 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

"Over here on the swing!" replies the drunk.
