An Engineer Dies And Is Accidentally Sent In The Wrong Direction.

Do you consider yourself to be a handy individual? Perhaps you are even a weekend warrior, taking on little projects around the home and sometimes, doing something that could only be considered epic. In this joke, an engineer did what he did best but he also took a bad situation and made it better. You might even say that he was making lemonade when life (or death) handed him a lemon. In the end, you get to see the beauty of a joke, because it will leave you with a smile that will stay on your face all day long.

An engineer dies and reports to the pearly gates. 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 awhile, they’ve got air conditioning and flush toilets and escalators, and the engineer is a pretty popular guy.

One day, God calls Satan up on the telephone and says with a sneer, “So, how’s it going down there in hell?”

Satan replies, “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 replies, “What??? You’ve got an engineer? That’s a mistake — he should never have gotten down there; send him up here.”

Satan 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.”

Satan laughs uproariously and answers, “Yeah, right. And just where are YOU going to get a lawyer?”
