Now something from Sally
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 a while, 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?”
You know you are living in 2021 when…
1… You accidentally enter your PIN on the microwave.
2… You haven’t played Solitaire with real cards in years.
3… You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of three..
4… You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.
5… Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that they don’t have e-mail addresses.
6… You pull up in your own driveway and use your mobile phone, to see if anyone is home to help you carry in the groceries…
7… Every commercial on television has a web site at the bottom of the screen
8… Leaving the house without your mobile phone, which you didn’t even have the first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause for panic, and you turn around to go and get it
10…You get up in the morning and go on line , before getting your coffee
11… You start tilting your head sideways to smile. :
12… You’re reading this and nodding, and laughing.
13… Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to forward this message.
14… You are too busy to notice there was no 9 on this
15… You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn’t a 9 on this list.
I hope this has left you with a smile on your face and please feel free to pass it on…thanks Debby and Sally.
