I wonder, I wonder

My son studied law and has two degrees. Then he decided not to work in that field. "Oh dear", thought his mother. "At least he is well educated." His reason? The people he met who were working as lawyers were not the type of people he wanted to work alongside. Hmmm. I would have just found some different people in a different town or something; but ...  There are good and bad people in every line of work.

This came to mind when I read the following joke which mentions a lawyer.

I wondered about sharing this joke as it is rather disparaging. Certainly to tell such a joke in a workplace here would earn you a big reprimand.
Read it. It definitely made me think about several things while I laughed.

An engineer dies and reports to the Pearly Gates.

Saint Peter checks his dossier and, not seeing his name there, accidentally sends him to Hell.

It doesn't take long before the engineer becomes rather dissatisfied with the level of comfort in Hell.

He soon begins to design and build improvements. Shortly thereafter, Hell has air conditioning, flush toilets and escalators. Needless to say, the engineer is a pretty popular guy.

One day, God calls Satan and says: "So, how are things in Hell?"

Satan replies: "Hey, things are going great. We've got air conditioning, flush toilets, and escalators. And there's no telling what this engineer is going to come up with next."

"What!" God exclaims: "You've got an engineer? That's a mistake - he should never have been sent to Hell. Send him back to me." 

"Not a chance," Satan replies: "I like having an engineer on the staff, and I'm keeping him!"

God insists: "Send him back or I'll sue."

Satan laughs uproariously and answers: "Yeah, right! And where are you going to get a lawyer?"
