I posted this a few years ago. It's just as relevant today
God: Hmmmm. From my records, I see you hounded innocent individuals for months, ruined them financially and had no regrets, yet you took care of your family with your good salary and perks. This brings me to a quandary.
Bureaucrat: I was doing my job as best as I could.
God: Well, I need to do something. You'll spend the next few decades suffering the same anguish you caused. You'll suffer every night of lost sleep, deprivation to survive the financial disaster and feel every moment of dread of every individual. When this is done, I'll still have a quandary.
Bureaucrat: You mean on when you'll let me into Heaven?
God: No, whether I'll have lunch before, or after I turn you over to Satan.
In Case You've Wondered
My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.
If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com
One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.
I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.
