Heaven vs Hell

  1. One day while walking down the street a highly successful Nurse
    Recruiter was tragically hit by a bus and she died. Her soul arrived
    up in heaven where she was met at the Pearly Gates by St. Peter himself.

    "Welcome to Heaven," said St. Peter. "Before you get settled in
    though, it seems we have a problem. You see, strangely enough, we've
    never once had a Nurse Recruiter 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-down-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 and
    fellow executives that she had worked with and they were well dressed in
    evening gowns and cheering for her. They ran up and kissed her on both
    cheeks and they talked about old times. They played an excellent round
    of golf and at night went to the country club where she enjoyed an
    excellent steak and lobster dinner. She met the Devil who was actually
    really nice guy (kind of cute) and she had a great time telling jokes
    and dancing.

    She was having such a good time that before she knew it, it was time
    to leave. Everybody shook her hand and waved good-bye as she got on the
    elevator. The elevator went up-up-up and opened back up at the Pearly
    Gates and found St. Peter waiting for her.

    "Now it's time to spend a day in heaven," he said. So 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 and St. Peter came and got her.

    "So, you've spent a day in hell and you've spent a day in heaven.
    Now you must choose your eternity,"

    The woman paused for a second and then 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 Hell."

    So St. Peter escorted her to the elevator and again she went
    down-down-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 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.
