Sort of reminds me of a story my father used to tell (we were living in PR at the time but I’m not sure that is relevant).
This guy dies and goes to heaven. After a few months of sitting around and strumming a harp he starts to get a bit bored. He finds St. Peter and asks if it is possible to visit hell, just to see what it’s like down there.
“Sure” says St. Pete, “Not a problem.” He shows him the elevator down and explains which buttons to push to go down and then up. “But” he warns him, “You can only make the round trip once.”
When he gets off the elevator in hell the guy is met by Satan who shows him around. He sees people having parties, drinking, dancing, and, in general, having a great time.
He takes the elevator back up, finds St. Pete, and tells him that he wants to move to hell.
“Okay” says St. Pete, “But remember, you can’t return here.”
“I’m sure I want to do it” says the guy and gets back on the elevator and pushes the down button.
When he gets off the elevator this time he sees nothing but people working with pickaxes, digging, sweating, flames licking up around them. He sees little devils running around with pitchforks, jabbing them into people who are not working hard enough.
He looks for and finds Satan and says to him, “Yesterday when I was here everything was party, fun, dancing. Today it looks like Hell. What’s happened?”
“Ah” says Satan, “Yesterday you were a tourist.”
