A man and his wife are awakened one morning at 3:00 a.m by a loud pounding on their door.
The husband gets up and goes to the door to find a drunk reeling in the pouring rain asking if he can get a push.
“Not a chance,” the husband replies. “It’s 3 in the morning and it’s pouring rain.” He slams the door in the drunk’s face and returns to bed.
“Who was that?” the wife asks.”
“Just some drunk wanting a push.”
“Did you help him?”
“Are you kidding? It’s 3 in the morning and it’s pouring cats and dogs out there.”
“Well,” the wife says, “you have a very short memory. Remember about three months ago when our car broke down and those two guys stopped and helped us out? You should be ashamed of yourself! God loves drunks, too, you know.”
Grumpily the husband does as he’s told. He gets up, gets dressed and goes out into the cold, pounding rain.
He calls out into the dark. “Hello, are you still there?”
“Yes,” the drunk answers.
“Do you still need a push?”
“Yes, please,” the drunk says.
“Where are you?” the husband asks.
“Over here on the swing,” the drunk replies.
