Three in the morning.

A MAN and his wife were awakened at 3am by a loud pounding on their door. The man got out of bed, went to the door, opened it and saw a drunken stranger standing in the pouring rain.
“What the hell do you want?” the angry man asked.

“Shcuse me, pal,” slurred the drunk, “but would you give me a push?”

“Are you crazy?” yelled the bloke. “Not a chance! It’s three o’clock in the morning and it’s pissing down!” then he slammed the door and went back to bed.
“Who was that?” asked his wife.
“Just some drunk asking for a push,” he mumbled.
“And did you help him dear?” the wife asked
“No I bloody didn’t help him!” the bloke yelled. “It’s three in the morning and raining crazy outside.”
“All I can say is you’ve got a very short memory,” snapped his wife.
“Don’t you remember the time our car broke down on the way to that golf club do of yours and those two kind strangers helped us out? Someone was nice enough to help you when you needed it – and I think you should help the poor man now.”
Knowing his wife would keep nagging him until he did what she said, the bloke got dressed, walked downstairs and went out into the wet.
Unable to see anything in the dark and driving rain, the bloke called out, “Hey are you still out there?”
“Yes,” came the reply.
“Do you still need a push?” the bloke called.
“Yes please!”
“Where are you?”
“Over here on the swing.”
