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, is
asking for a push. 'Not a chance,' says the husband, 'it's 3:00
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 3:00 in the morning and
it is pouring 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? 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 downpour.

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,' replied the drunk.
