Joe the lawyer died suddenly, at the age of 45.
He got to the gates of Heaven, and the angel standing there said, “We’ve been waiting a long time for you.”
What do you mean he replied, “I’m only 45, in the prime of my life. Why did I have to die now?”
“45? You’re not 45, you’re 82” replied the angel.
“Wait a minute. If you think I’m 82 then you have the wrong guy. I’m only 45. I can show you my birth certificate.”
“Hold on. Let me go check” said the angel and disappeared inside.
After a few minutes the angel returned.
“Sorry, but by our records you are 82. I checked all the hours you have billed your clients, and you have to be 82.”
