God Loves Drunk People Too

A man and his wife were awakened at 3:00 am by a loud pounding on the door. The man got up and went to the door where a drunken stranger, standing in the pouring rain, was asking for a push.

"Not a chance," said the husband, "It is 3:00 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," he answered.

"Did you help him?" she asked. "No, I did not. It is 3:00 in the morning, AND it is pouring rain out there!"

"Well, you have a short memory," said the wife. "Can't you remember about three months ago when we broke down and those two guys helped us? I think you should help him, and you should be ashamed of yourself! God loves drunk people too."

The man did as he was told, got dressed, and went out into the pounding rain. He called out into the dark, "Hello, are you still there?"

"Yes," came back the answer.

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

"Yes, please!" came the reply from the dark.

"Where are you?" asked the husband. "Over here on the swing set," replied the drunk.
