One day while walking down the street a highly successful Human Resources
Director was tragically hit by a bus and she died.
Her soul was met at the Pearly Gates by St. Peter himself. Welcome to Heaven," said St. Peter. "Before you get settled in, it seems we have a problem.
You see, we've never had a Human Resources Director make it this far
and we're not really sure what to do with you."
" No problem, just let me in" said the woman.
"Well, I'd like to, but I have higher orders. What we're going to do is let you have a day in Hell and a day in
Heaven and then you can choose whichever one you want to spend an eternity in."
"Actually, I think I've made up my mind, I prefer to stay in Heaven",
said the woman.
"Sorry, we have rules..." And with that St. Peter put the executive in
an elevator and it went down to hell. The doors opened and she found
herself stepping out onto the putting green of a beautiful golf course.
In the distance was a country club and standing in front of her were all
her friends - fellow executives that she had worked with and they
were all cheering for her. They ran up and kissed her on both cheeks and talked about old times.
They played an excellent round of golf and at night went to the ountry
club where she enjoyed an excellent steak and lobster dinner. She met the Devil who was actually a really nice guy (kinda cute) and she
had a great time telling jokes and dancing. Everybody shook her hand
and waved good-bye as she got on the elevator.
The elevator opened at the Pearly Gates and she found St. Peter waiting
for her. She spent the next 24 hours lounging around on clouds and playing
the harp and singing. She had a great time and before she knew it her 24 hours
were up. St. Peter came and got her.
"So, you've spent a day in hell and you've spent a day in heaven. Now
choose you eternity," he said.
The woman replied: "Well, I never thought I'd say this, I mean,
Heaven has been really great and all, but I think I had a better time in
So St.Peter escorted her to the elevator and again she went down
back to Hell. When the doors of the elevator opened she found herself standing in a desolate wasteland
covered in garbage and filth.
She saw her friends were dressed in rags and were picking up the
garbage and putting it in sacks. The Devil came up to her and put his arm around her.
"I don't understand," stammered the woman, "yesterday I was here and
there was a golf course and a country club and we ate lobster and we
danced and had a great time. Now all there is a wasteland of garbage and all my friends look miserable."
The Devil looked at her and smiled. "Yesterday we were recruiting
you, today you're staff..."
