A man is in bed with his wife when they hear a rat-a-tat-tat on the door.
He rolls over and looks at the clock – it’s half past three in the morning. “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?” asks his wife.
So he drags himself out of bed and goes downstairs. He opens the door to see a man standing there. It doesn’t take him long to realise the man is drunk.
“Hi there”, slurs the stranger. “Can you give me a push?”
“No, get lost. It’s half past three. I was in bed,” says the man and slams the door. He goes back up to bed and tells his wife what happened.
“Dave, that wasn’t very nice of you. Remember that night we broke down in the pouring rain on the way to collect the kids from the babysitter and you had to knock on that man’s door? 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. “Go downstairs and help him.”
So the husband gets dressed and goes down to help him. 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 unable to see the stranger he shouts, “WHERE ARE YOU?” and the stranger replies…..
“Over here on your swing!”
This week I have Liz to thank for this rib tickler!
That one I love – thank you Liz and thank you Gm!
Sorry to hear your temperature control switch is on the blink – I wouldn’t mind a bit of 24c right now lol
Cathy, I may moan, but I actually cope better with the cold than the heat. On three occasions down the years, I suffered stroke in IRELAND!
I can relate! I have had somewhat similar experiences both as a woken up host and the knocker on the door.
Ramana, I think I have heard those tales before.
I assume from this groaner you are back to you old self. Excellent!
Al, I am well on the way!
Not at half past three in the morning, Nancy! 😆
Haha! After that the only push he was likely to get was a request to push off!
Col, at four o’clock in the morning, you might be right!
OMG! I would call 911 I fear.
I don’t think that I would be too fond of leaving a warm bed to push someone on a swing!
