All engineers go to heaven. Lawyers end up in hell
An engineer died and St. Peter mistakenly ticked his profession as a lawyer and he was sent to hell instead of heaven.
So, the engineer reported to the gates of hell and was let in. Pretty soon, the engineer was dissatisfied with the level of comfort in hell, and started designing and building improvements. After awhile, they've got air conditioning and flush toilets and escalators, and the engineer became a pretty popular guy.
One day, God called Satan up on the telephone and says with a sneer, "So, how's it going down there in hell?"
Satan replied, "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 replied, "What??? You've got an engineer? That's a mistake -- he should never have gotten down there; send him up here."
Satan said, "No way. I like having an engineer on the staff, and I'm keeping him."
God said, "Send him back up here or I'll sue."
Satan laughed hilariously and answered, "Yeah, right. And just where are YOU going to get a lawyer up there in heaven?"
