The Drunk Needed A Push
A man and his wife were awoken at 3:00 am by a loud pounding on the door. The husband reluctantly got up and went to the door where a drunken stranger, standing in the pouring rain, was asking for a push. "Not a chance," said the husband, "it is 3:00 in the morning!" He slamed the door and returned to bed.
"Who was that?" asked his wife.
"Just some drunk asking for a push," he answered.
"Did you help him?" she asked.
"No, I didn't, it is 3:00 in the morning and it's pouring with rain out there!"
"Well, you have a short memory," said his wife. "Can't you remember about six months ago when we broke down and were stranded, those two guys helped us get home? I think you should help him, and you should be ashamed of yourself"
The man did as he is told, got dressed, put on his hat and raincoat and went out into the pounding wind and rain. He called out into the dark, "Hello, are you still there mate?"
"Yes," came back the answer.
"Do you still need a push?" called out the husband.
"Yes, please!" came the reply from the dark.
"Where are you?" asked the husband.
"Over here on the swing," replied the drunk
