Mike found himself at the Pearly Gates of heaven and facing St. Peter. Peter seemed flustered as he flipped through a big book and the checked his computer and then back to the book. Finally St. Peter said, "I am sorry, but we are changing over all,our records from the book to the computer and, as happens some things got missed. Looking at your records you are right on the edge, not particularly bad or good. This is a tough call. Is there anything significant you did recently that would help make the decision on where you are supposed to go?"
Mike was quick to say there certainly was. " I was on the way home from work and there was a detour because of the construction and then I got lost in a real bad neighborhood. I was behind a small car at a traffic light when a gang of big guys rushed the car and pulled the lady driver out. They dragged her into the alley and knew she was in in serious trouble. I grabbed my tire iron and ran into the alley after them. I jumped between her and the biggest guy there and I told him, 'If you want to get to her you have to get past me first!'"
St. Peter was clearly impressed. "Wow, that is really something, that certainly puts you over the top. It doesn't show in either of our records, when was that?"
Mike checked his watch and replied, "Oh, about 8 minutes ago."
