An engineer dies and goes to Hell.
He’s talking with Satan and says, “What a terrible place! It’s very hot, dark, smoky and extremely bad!”
Satan said, “Well, what did you expect? After all, this IS Hell!”
The engineer said, “Do you have a compressor, some tubing, and wire?
Satan said, “Yeah, we might have some of that stuff laying around somewhere. I’ll check and see what I can find for you.”
Satan finds the stuff. So, the engineer starts designing and building improvements. After a while, Hell has air conditioning, iced water, good lighting, flush toilets, and escalators. The engineer is a pretty popular guy!
One day God calls and tells Satan, “Say, we had a mix-up. I was checking records and discovered that by error an engineer got sent down to you. He should have come here in Heaven. All engineers go to Heaven. You need to transfer him up here instead.”
Satan says, “Why, things are going great. We’ve now got air conditioning, iced water, flush toilets, great lighting, and escalators, and there’s no telling what this engineer is going to come up with next. We like him! We’re going to keep him.”
God is horrified. “That’s clearly a mistake! He should never have gone down there in the first place! Send him up here immediately!”
Satan says, “No way! I really like having an engineer on the staff. I’m keeping him.”
God says, “Send him back up here or I’ll sue you!” Satan laughs, “Yeah, right, God. Good luck on that. Where are you going to find a lawyer?!”
