A couple are fast asleep in the early hours of the morning when there’s a knock at their front door. The husband tries to ignore it but moments later the knocking is repeated, louder than before.

“Go and see who it is, dear,” his wife says. “It must be important at this hour.”

So the husband puts on his dressing gown and goes downstairs to answer the door. He’s greeted by a drunk who says in a slurred voice, “Will you give me a push?”

The husband is furious. “No, I will not!” he rages. “It’s half past three in the morning and I was fast asleep in bed. Get lost!” He slams the door shut and goes back to bed.

When he tells his wife what had happened she’s annoyed with him.

“That wasn’t a very nice thing to do,” she says. “Remember the time when our car broke down late at night in the pouring rain on our way to pick up the kids from the babysitter, and you had to knock on that man’s door to ask for help? What would we have done if he’d told us to get lost?”

“But this guy is drunk,” the husband protests.

“It doesn’t matter. He needs our help.”

The husband can see he won’t be allowed to go back to sleep so he gets dressed, goes downstairs and opens the door. He can’t see the drunk anywhere so he calls, “Do you still want a push?”

A voice comes out of the darkness, “Yes, please.”

“Where are you?” the husband asks, still unable to see him.

“I’m over here – on your swing.”
