A ukulele player and his wife were woken at 3 o’clock in the morning by loud knocking on the door.
The ukulele player got up, went to the door and found a banjo player standing in the pouring rain.
“I need a push”, said the banjo player.
“Not a chance”, said the ukulele player, “it’s 3 o’clock in the morning”, slammed the door and went back to bed.
Banjo Player“Who was that?” asked his wife.
“Just some banjo player bloke asking for a push”, he answered.
“Did you help him?”, she asked.
“No, I did not, it’s 3 o’clock in the morning and it’s pouring rain outside” he said.
“Well, …. you have a short memory”, said the wife, “don’t you remember, about three months ago when we broke down, and those two nice young men helped us?. I think you should help him and you should be ashamed of yourself”.
The ukulele player does as he’s told, gets dressed, and goes out into the pouring rain.
He called out into the dark night, “Hello, are you still there?”.
“Yes” comes back the answer.
“Do you still need a push?”, called the ukulele player.
“Yes please”, came the reply from the dark.
“Where are you?”, asked the ukulele player.
The banjo player replied, “Over here on the swing”.
