Give me a push?


A man is in bed with his wife when there is a
rat-a-tat-tat on the door.

He rolls over and looks at his clock, and it's
half past three in the morning. "I'm not getting
out of bed at this time," he thinks and rolls over.
Then, a louder knock follows.

"Aren't you going to answer that?" says his wife.

So he drags himself out of bed and goes downstairs.
He opens the door and there is man standing at the
door. It didn't take the homeowner long to realize
the man was drunk.

"Hi there," slurs the stranger. "Can you give me a push??"

"No, get lost. It's half past three. I was in bed,"
says the man and slams the door. He goes back up to
bed and tells his wife what happened and she says,

"Dave, that wasn't very nice of you. Remember that night
we broke down in the pouring rain on the way to pick
the kids up from the baby sitter and you had to knock
on that man's house to get us started again? What would
have happened if he'd told us to get lost??"

"But the guy was drunk," says the husband.

"It doesn't matter," says the wife. "He needs our help
and it would be the Christian thing to help him." So
the husband gets out of bed again, gets dressed, and
goes downstairs.

He opens the door, and not being able to see the stranger
anywhere he shouts, "Hey, do you still want a push??"

And he hears a voice cry out, "Yeah, please."

So, still being unable to see the stranger he shouts,
"Where are you?"

And the stranger replies, "I'm over here, on your swing."
