PUSH START

Street Machine - - LOL -

A MAN and his wife were awak­ened at 3am by a loud pound­ing on the door. The man got up, opened the door and saw a drunken stranger, stand­ing in the pour­ing rain. “I need a push!” the drunk slurred.

“Not a chance,” said the man. “It is three in the morn­ing!” He slammed the door and re­turned to bed.

“Who was that?” asked his wife.

“Just some drunk guy ask­ing for a push,” the hus­band an­swered.

“Did you help him?” she asked.

“No, I did not! It is three in the morn­ing and it is pour­ing rain out there!” the hus­band said.

“Well, you have a short mem­ory,” his wife scolded. “Can’t you re­mem­ber about three months ago when we broke down, and those two guys helped us? You should be ashamed of your­self! Go out and help him.”

So the hus­band grumpily did as he was told. He got dressed and went out­side into the pound­ing rain.

“Hello, are you still there?” he called into the dark­ness.

“Yes,” came the answer.

“Do you still need a push?” the hus­band called out.

“Yes, please!” came the re­ply from the dark. “Where are you?” asked the hus­band. The drunk replied: “Over here, on the swing.”
