Can you give me a push?

A man and his wife were awakened at 3 a.m. by a loud pounding on the door. He got up and went to the door and found a drunk standing in the doorway.

What do you want?”

A push.”

It’s pouring with rain and it’s 3 a.m. There’s no way I’m getting soaked for a stranger.” And he slammed the door.

When his wife asked what had happened he told the story but was amazed to be told off for being unkind. She reminded him that he’d had help in the past from total strangers. He was ashamed of himself and went back downstairs, opened the door and peered out in the blackness and the pouring rain. He couldn’t see anyone and pulling a coat over his head went to look for the stranger. He called out, “Where are you?”

Over here on the swing.”
