St. Peter checks his dossier and says, “Ah, you’re an engineer, you’re in the wrong place.”
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, flush toilets and escalators, the engineer is becoming a pretty popular guy.
One day, God calls Devil up on the telephone and asks with a sneer, “So, how’s it going down there in hell?”
Devil replies, “Hey, things are going great. We’ve got air conditioning, flush toilets and escalators, lets see 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 gone down there, send him up here.”
Devil 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.”
Devil laughs uproariously and answers, “Yeah right and just where are you going to get a lawyer, when all of them are here”.
