A Stranger In the Night
A man and his wife were awakened at 3 o’clock in the morning
by a loud pounding on the door. The man got up and went to the
door where an inebriated stranger was standing in pouring rain,
asking for a push.
“Not a chance” said the husband – “It’s three o’clock in the morning!”
He slammed the door and returned to bed.
“Who was it?” asked his wife.
“Just a drunken stranger asking for a push.”
“Did you help him?” she asked.
“No, I didn’t – it’s three in the morning and raining cats and dogs
“Well you’ve got a short memory,” said the wife. “Can’t you remember
about three months ago when we broke down on vacation and those
two guys helped us? I think you should help him.”
The man did as she suggested. He got dressed and went out into the
pounding rain. He called out in the darkness, “Hello are you still there?”
“Yes,” came the answer.
“Do you still want a push?”
“Yes, please!” came the reply.
“Where are you?” asked the husband.
“Over here on the swing,” the drunk replied.
