Early this morning...

...we had the mother of all T-storms.

Down the road a bit, a soldier and his wife were awakened at 0300 by a loud, persistent pounding on the door. The soldier got up, opened the door and saw a sodden Marine standing in the downpour, asking for a push.

"Not a chance," said the soldier, "It’s three o'clock in the morning!"

He slammed the door and returned to bed.

"Who was that?" asked his wife.

"Just some Marine asking for a push," he answered.

"Did you help him?" she asked.

"No, I didn’t—it’s three in the morning and pouring rain!"

"Well, don't *you* have a short memory! Do you recall about three months ago when we broke down and those two Marines helped us? You should be ashamed of yourself! Now, go help him!"

The soldier, thoroughly chastened, dressed and went out into the pounding rain, calling into the dark, "Hey, Marine! Are you still there?"

"Yes."

"Do you still need a push?"

"Yes, please!"

"Where are you?"

"Over here, on the swing!"
