A Cab Driver Goes To Heaven

A Cab Driver Goes To Heaven (A cab driver reaches the Pearly Gates and announces hispresence to St. Peter, who looks him up in his Big Book.Upon reading the entry for the cabby, St. Peter invites himto grab a silk robe and a golden staff and to proceed intoHeaven. A preacher is next in line behind the cabby and has beenwatching these proceedings with interest. He announceshimself to St. Peter. Upon scanning the preacher’s entry inthe Big Book, St. Peter furrows his brow and says, “Okay,we’ll let you in, but take that cloth robe and wooden staff.”The preacher is astonished and replies, “But I am a man ofthe cloth. You gave that cab driver a gold staff and a silkrobe. Surely I rate higher than a cabby.” St. Peter responded matter-of-factly: “Here we areinterested in results. When you preached, people slept. When the cabby drove his taxi, people prayed.”
