A man and his wife are awakened at 3 in the morning by pounding on a 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 drunk guy asking for a push,” he answers.
“Well, 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 gets up, gets dressed, and goes out into the pouring rain.
He calls out into the dark, “Hello, are you still there?”
“Yes” comes back the answer.
“Do you still need a push?”, calls the husband.
“Yes please!” comes the reply from the dark.
“Where are you?” asks the husband.
The drunk replies “Over here on the swing!”
