Reward for Goodness

Three men died in a car accident and came to the Pearly Gates where they met St. Peter who said, “I will ask you each a simple question. If you tell the truth I will allow you into heaven, but if you lie, hell is waiting for you.

He asked the first man, “How many times did you cheat on your wife?” The first man replied, “I was a good husband. I never cheated on my wife.” St. Peter replied, “Very good! Not only will I allow you in, but for being faithful to your wife I will give you a huge mansion and a limo for your transportation.

To the second man St. Peter asked, “How many times did you cheat on your wife?” The second man replied, “I cheated on my wife twice.” St. Peter replied, “I will allow you to come in, but for your unfaithfulness, you will get a four bedroom house and a BMW.

To the third man he asked, “So, how many times did you cheat on your wife?” The third man replied, “I cheated on my wife about 8 times.” St. Peter replied, “I will allow you to come in, but for your unfaithfulness, you will get a one room apartment, and a Yugo for your transportation.

A couple hours later the second and third men saw the first man crying his eyes out. “Why are you crying?” the two men asked. “You got the mansion and limo!” The first man replied, “I’m crying because I saw my wife a little while ago, and she was riding a skateboard!”
