Give Me A Push

A man is sleeping next to his wife, when he hears a loud knock on his door.
He rolls over and looks at his clock, and it’s 3 AM!
“I’m not getting out of bed at this time” 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 there is man standing at the door. It didn’t take the homeowner long to realise 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 asleep!” says the man before slamming the door.
He goes back up 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 on the way 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’s 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 being able to see the stranger anywhere he shouts “Hey, do you still want a push?” He hears a voice cry out “Yeah please”.
Still being unable to see the stranger he shouts “Where are you?”
And the stranger replies “Over here… on the swing”.
