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 the pouring rain, is
asking for a push.
"Not a chance," says the husband, "it is three o'clock
in the morning!" He slams the door and returns to bed.
"Who was that?" asked his wife.

"Well, you have a short memory," says his wife. "Can't
you remember about three months ago when we broke down

him, and you should be ashamed of yourself!"
The man does as he's told, gets dressed, and goes out
into the pouring rain. He calls out into the dark,
"Hello, are you still there?"

"Do you still need a push?" calls out the husband.
"Yes, please!" comes the reply from the dark.
"Where are you?" asks the husband.
Replies the drunk - "Over here on the swing!"
