An engineer dies and reports to the pearly gates. St. Peter checks his
dossier and says, "Ah, you're an engineer -- you're in the wrongplace."
So the engineer reports to the gates of hell and is let in.
Pretty soon,the engineer gets dissatisfied with the level of comfort
in hell, and starts designing and building improvements.
After a while, they've got air conditioning and flush toilets and escalators,
and the engineer is a pretty popular guy.
One day God calls Satan up on the telephone and says with a sneer,"So,
how's it going down there in hell?" Satan replies, "Hey, things are
going great. We've got air conditioning and flush toilets and
escalators, and there's no telling what this engineer is going to come
up with next."
God replies, "What??? You've got an engineer? That's a mistake -- he
should never have gotten down there; send him up here." Satan says,
"No way. I like having an engineer on the staff, and I'm keeping him."
God says, "Send him back up here or I'll sue." Satan laughs
uproariouslyand answers, "Yeah, right. And just where are YOU going to
get a lawyer?"
