A man is in bed with his wife when there is a knock on the door. He rolls over and looks at his clock; it’s 3 AM. “I’m not getting out of bed now,” 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 a man is 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 3 AM. I was in bed,” says the man and slams the door.
He goes back 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 while going to pick the kids up from the babysitter, 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 seeing the stranger anywhere, he shouts, “Hey, do you still want a push?” and hears a voice cry out, “Yeah, please.”
So, still unable to see the stranger, he shouts, “Where are you?”
And the stranger replies: “I’m over here, on your swing.”
