HUMOR HELPS HAPPINESS (Can You Give Me a Push?)
A man was in bed with his wife when he hears a rat-a-tat-tat on the front door. He rolls over and looks at his clock, grumbling when he sees it's 3:30 in the morning.
"I'm not getting out of bed this time." he says to himself and rolls over to go back to sleep. Then, a harder 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 front door and notices it's his neighbor, drunk and swaying from side to side
"Hi there," says the drunk neighbor. "Can you give me a push?"
"No! Get lost! It's 3:30 in the morning! I was in bed" the man angrily shouted. Then he slammed the door shut, goes back to bed and tells his wife what happened.
"Dave, that wasn't very nice of you. Don't you remember the time our car broke down in the pouring rain on the way to pick the kids up from the baby-sitter? Remember when you knocked on that man's door and asked if he could help us get our car started again? What if he would have told us to get lost?"
"But the guy is drunk!" said the husband.
"It doesn't matter," says the wife. "He needs our help and the right thing to do is to help him."
So the husband gets out of bed again, gets dressed and goes to the front door. He opens it but doesn't see the man so he shouts, "HEY, DO YOU STILL WANT A PUSH?"
Then, in the near distance, he hears the voice of the drunk neighbor. "Yes, please."
The husband wasn't able to see the neighbor so he shouts, "WHERE ARE YOU?"
And the drunk neighbor replies, "I'm over here. On your swing."
Please pass this on to others who may be needing a little laughter today.1
