A highly successful business woman was tragically hit by a bus and killed. She arrived in heaven where she was met by Saint Peter.
"Welcome to heaven," Peter told the her. "However, it appears we have a problem. Strangely enough, we've never had such a highly successful business executive get this far. And we're not really sure what to do with you."
"No problem, Peter, just let me in." she replied.
Peter then informed her, "What we're going to do is let you spend a day in heaven and a day in hell. Then you can choose where you want to spend an eternity."
So Peter directed her to the heavenly elevator. Then the elevator took her down, down, down, to hell. When the doors opened, she was astounded as she stepped 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 she had worked with. They were all dressed to play golf and began cheering for her. They all ran up to her, kissed her on both cheeks and then talked about old times. They then played an excellent round of golf. At night, they went to the country club where she enjoyed an excellent steak and lobster dinner. She also met the Devil whom, she thought, was actually a really nice guy (kinda cute too.) She and her friends had a great time telling jokes and dancing. She was having so much of a good time that, before she knew it, it was time to leave. Everybody shook her hand and waved goodbye as she got on the elevator. Then the elevator took her back up to Saint Peter who was waiting for her.
"Now it's time to spend a day in heaven," he said. So, she spent her time lounging around on a cloud, playing the harp and singing, "Kum ba yah." After a while, she was so bored, she fell asleep. And before she knew it, her day in heaven was over and Peter went to get her.
"So," Peter told her, "You've spent a day in hell and a day in heaven. Now you must choose your eternity."
The woman replied, "Well, I never thought I'd say this - I mean - heaven is really great and all; but I think I had a better time in hell."
So Peter escorted her to the elevator and again she went down to hell. When the doors opened this time, she found herself standing in vast wasteland filled with rotten garbage. She saw her friends, who were dressed in rags, picking up 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 danced and had a great time. Now, all I see is a wasteland of garbage and all my friends look miserable."
The Devil looked at her, smiled and said, "Yesterday, we were recruiting you for a job. Today, you're staff."
