The Drunk

 A man and his wife are awakened at 3 o'clock in the morning by a
loud pounding on the door. The man gets up and goes to the door where a drunken stranger standing in a pouring down rain is asking for a push.

"Not a chance" says the husband -- "It's three o'clock in the morning!"
 He slams the door and returns to bed.

"Who was it?" asks his wife.

"Just a drunken stranger asking for a push" he answers.

"Did you help him?" she asks.

"NO, I didn't -- it's three in the morning and it's pouring out!"

"Well, you've got a short memory" says his wife. "Can't you remember
 about three months ago when we broke down on holiday and those two guys
 helped us?  I think you should help him."

 The man does as he is told and ! gets dressed and goes out into the pounding
 rain and calls out into the dark. "Hello, are you still there?"

"Yes," comes the answer.

"Do you still want 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" the drunk replies.
