Lighten up Mondays.

Posted on Updated on

A lawyer is standing at the gate to heaven, and St. Peter is listing the lawyer’s sins:

  1. Defending a large corporation in a pollution suit when he knew they were guilty;
  2. Defending an obviously guilty murderer because the fee was high;
  3. Overcharging many clients;
  4. Prosecuting an innocent woman because a scapegoat was needed in a controversial case … and so the list continued.

The lawyer objects and begins to argue his case.  He admits all these things but argues, “Wait, I’ve done some charity in my life too.”

St. Peter looks in his book and says, “Yes, I see.  Once you gave a dime to a panhandler and once you gave an extra nickel to the shoeshine boy, correct?”

The lawyer gets a smug look on his face and replies, “Yes.”

St. Peter turns to the angel next to him and says, “Give this guy fifteen cents and tell him to go to hell.”
