An Engineer died and went to see St. Peter.
‘I’m sorry, but I can’t let you in,’ says St. Peter.
The engineer instead goes to hell where conditions are atrocious. After a while, the engineer started to make improvements. He added an escalator, running water, and after a couple of months even air conditioning. Of course eventually God heard about the changes down below. God phoned up the devil and explained that a mistake had been made and the engineer would have to be moved up to heaven.
“No, I don’t think so,” says the devil.
“This is your last chance. Send that engineer up here or I’ll sue you!”
The devil laughed “Ha, where are you going to find a lawyer?”
