“I’d tell you to go to hell, but I work there and I don’t want to see you every day”

"I’d tell you to go to hell, but I work there and I don’t want to see you every day” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images. The saying was posted on the newsgroup comp.sys.mac.misc on November 8, 1996.

“I’d tell you to go to hell, but I work there and don’t want to see your ugly mug every day” was posted on Twitter by Emogene Toan on December 26, 2013.
