A recently deceased man finds himself at the gates of Heaven and tries to walk in. St. Peter stops him, and asks what he wants. "I'd like to get in,"
the man replies.
St. Peter tells him that before he can enter, he has to answer a series of questions about what kind of life he's led. The man agrees. St. Peter asks
him how he treated his family while he was alive. "Not very well, I guess," the man says. "I never paid much attention to them." St. Peter then asks
the man how often he went to church. "Um, never," the man replies. Then St. Peter asks him if he ever did any community service or volunteer work.
"Nope, never," the man says.
Exasperated, St. Peter asks the man if he ever did anything good in his life. "Well, there was that woman I saved from the biker," the man says. St.
Peter asks him to elaborate.
"Well, I was driving down the road one day, and I saw this big, scary biker trying to attack a woman by the side of the road. So I stopped my car,
walked up to the man and tried to get him to
leave the woman alone, but he paid no attention to me. So I walked over to the man's Harley-Davidson, and tipped it right on its side. The man
promptly let go of the woman and ran to his bike, at which point I punched him right in the nose. The woman got away safely."
"Wow, that is an impressive story and a very good deed," St. Peter tells the man. "When did this happen?"
"About 15 minutes ago," the man replies.
