A man and his wife were awakened at 3:00 am 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, He totters and asks, "Can yer give us a push buddy, I can't get started.
"Not a chance," says the husband, "It's three o'clock in the morning!" He slams the door and goes back to bed.
"Who was that?" asked his wife.."Just some drunk asking for a push," he answers.
"Did you help him?" she asks.
"No, I did not, it's three A.M. and it's bloody well pouring with rain 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? You should be ashamed of yourself! I think you should help him!"
The man feels guilty. So he 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?" the husband calls out.
"Yes, please!" comes the reply from the dark.
"Where are you?" asks the husband.
"Over here on the swing," replies the drunk.
