Pearly Gates

A lawyer died and arrived at the Pearly Gates. 
Saint Peter asked him, "What have you done to merit entrance into Heaven?" 
The lawyer thought a moment, then said, "A week ago, I gave a quarter to a homeless person on the street." 
Saint Peter asked Gabriel to check this out in the records, and after a moment Gabriel affirmed that it was true. 
Saint Peter said, "Well , that's fine, but it's not really quite enough to get you into Heaven." 
The Lawyer said, "Wait, wait! There's more! Three years ago, I also gave a homeless person a quarter." 
Saint Peter nodded to Gabriel, who, after a moment, nodded back to affirm that it was true. 
Saint Peter then whispered to Gabriel, "Well, what do you suggest we do with this fellow?" 
Gabriel gave the lawyer a sidelong glance, then said to Saint Peter, "Let's give him back his 50 cents and tell him to go to Hell."
